To immunohistochemically examine the localization of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in the trabecular meshwork (TM) in steroid-induced glaucoma (SG) specimens. We morphologically and immunohistochemically examined six trabecular tissues from three eyes with SG, two with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), and one without glaucoma. For the morphological(More)
concern for both parent and clinician, and hence necessitates thorough clinical examination. Complete dilated fundus examination should be performed on all babies and children in whom leucocoria is observed in photographs. In the event of normal clinical findings in a child presenting with leucocoria seen on amateur photography, an awareness of the(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical utility of SG17, an ophthalmic antimicrobial susceptibility measurement plate. DESIGN This was a multicenter, retrospective, observational study. PATIENTS AND METHODS Using clinical isolates from patients with ocular infections, drug susceptibility testing using the Clinical Laboratory and(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate that developmental glaucoma (instead of the term goniodysgenetic glaucoma is used in this paper), defined as glaucoma with goniodysgenesis resulting from a fetal maldevelopment of the iridocorneal angle, develops in association with congenital microcoria. METHODS Three subjects descended from a family with autosomal dominant(More)
PURPOSE The purpose was to study the histology of the fibrovascular membranes in proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) with an intravitreal injection of bevacizumab. METHODS Light and electron microscopic studies were performed on surgical specimens obtained during a pars plana vitrectomy from 6 PDR eyes after intravitreal injection of bevacizumab. The(More)
We report a rare case with a classic temporal optic disc pit (ODP) showing the progression of an associated nerve fiber layer defect (NFLD) with the corresponding visual field defect (VFD). We describe the patient’s medical records and review the pertinent literature. A 54-year-old woman had a temporal ODP, which was considered to be congenital, associated(More)
tendon, and it covered the tissue plane of the levator aponeurosis and the levator palpebrae superioris muscle. An excisional biopsy of the mass was performed to confi rm the diagnosis. During the surgery, a mass was found just beneath the orbital septum with an anterior intraorbital extension, and a biopsy specimen was removed. Histopathological comparison(More)
PURPOSE We report a case with bullous retinal detachment secondary to ocular toxocariasis. CASE A 68-year-old man, who was a professional dog breeder, visited an ophthalmologist because of visual field defect in the left eye, and was referred to our clinic. The patient had bilateral cataract and bullous retinal detachment in the left eye. Fundus(More)
This study was conducted to verify the usefulness of nonfunctional trabeculectomy bleb reconstruction using a silicone sponge wrapped with amniotic membrane. Its purpose was to allow aqueous humor to flow from the flap to the posterior orbital space. Seven consecutive patients who had undergone two or more surgeries in one eye for refractory glaucoma(More)
