Purpose To describe a patient with isolated foveal hypoplasia. Methods A 55-year-old man with the clinical suspicion of foveal hypoplasia was given a complete ophthalmological examination, including optical coherence tomography (OCT), fluorescein angiography (FA) and fundus-related perimetry (FRP). Mutation screening for oculocutaneous albinism and aniridia(More)
PURPOSE To report the functional and anatomical outcomes resulting from the use of intravitreal pegaptanib sodium (Macugen) in patients with diabetic macular oedema (DMO). METHODS We conducted a retrospective outcome analysis, by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), of eyes with DMO treated with intravitreal(More)
The purpose of this paper was to describe a patient with pericentral retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and cystoid macular edema (CME) refractory to oral acetazolamide alone who was successfully treated with adjunctive pegaptanib sodium. A 33-year-old man presented with decreased vision and a best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in his left eye of 20/200 due to CME(More)
PURPOSE To describe a patient with a large idiopathic partial-thickness macular hole involving the outer layers of the retina. METHODS We performed complete ophthalmologic examination, including fluorescein angiography, B-scan ultrasonography, and optical coherence tomography, on an 81-year-old woman who was referred to our department with the clinical(More)
Purpose: To describe a case of scattered toxicity of indocyanine green on the outer retina and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) after indocyanine green (ICG) assisted membrane peeling for macular pucker. Methods: A 61-year-old woman was examined by slit-lamp biomicroscopy, fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) and optical(More)
Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) is a mitochondrial disorder characterized by bilateral painless optic atrophy and blindness. It usually occurs in young men in association with three major mutations in the mitochondrial genome (mtDNA). We report a patient with a history of alcohol abuse who developed at age 63 years visual impairment, sensorineural(More)
PURPOSE To report the use of bevacizumab in patients with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease and persistent serous retinal detachment during the systemic steroid treatment. METHODS Four patients with bilateral Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease with the resolution of ocular inflammation presenting a serous retinal detachment involving the fovea that persisted for at(More)
We present a case of combined central retinal vein and cilioretinal artery occlusion which, due to the absence of the temporal branch retinal artery, was initially misdiagnosed as a combined central retinal vein occlusion and temporal branch retinal artery occlusion. Given that – in contrast to cases of combined central artery and central retinal vein(More)
The purpose of this study is to report a case of retinal capillary hemangioma treated with ruthenium-106 brachytherapy combined with intravitreal bevacizumab. A 58-year-old woman presented with blurred vision in her left eye for 15 days. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was counting fingers at 3 m in her left eye. Examination showed a peripheral(More)
To report on a patient who developed a lamellar macular hole 1 month after an intravitreal pegaptanib sodium injection. Interventional case report. A 66 year old patient developed a lamellar macular hole 1 month after an intravitreal pegaptanib sodium injection for diabetic macular edema (DME). The pathogenesis of the lamellar macular hole in our case can(More)
