study by Gundogan et al. We only included the patients with both clinically and genetically diagnosed FMF. Thus, we think this lowers the false positive risk and increases the sensitivity of the study. We are wondering whether all patients in Gundogan et al.’s study had MEFV gene mutations, and if so, whether there was any genotype-phenotype correlation?(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to investigate the association between atherosclerotic changes in the common carotid artery (CA) and conjunctival and corneal calcification (CCC) in maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients. METHODS Fifty eyes of MHD patients with the highest CCC scores were enrolled. CCCs were scored according to the method described by Tokuyama et al.(More)
PURPOSE Ectodermal dysplasia (ED) results from abnormal development of the ectodermal layer. Although coexistence of ED and retinal pathology has been described, concomitance with retinal venous tortuosity has not been reported in the literature. METHODS Case report. RESULTS We report the case of a 23-year-old man with ED with bilateral retinal venous(More)
Psychotropic medications may cause many ocular adverse effects including toxic optic neuropathy. We present a unique case of a 44-year-old woman using duloxetine who presented with unilateral visual loss due to retrobulbar neuritis. Physicians and patients should be alerted to this potential side effect. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate changes in ocular biometric parameters after hemodialysis (HD) in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). METHODS Forty eyes of 40 patients undergoing HD were included in this cross-sectional study. Keratometry (K) readings, white-to-white (WTW) distance, central corneal thickness (CCT), anterior chamber depth (ACD), pupil(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to evaluate changes in retinal, choroidal, ganglion cell complex (GCC) and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thicknesses in genetically diagnosed adult patients with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF). METHODS A total of 50 eyes of 50 genetically diagnosed patients with FMF and 50 eyes of controls were analyzed. Patients were recruited(More)
Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) is altered in several neurodegenerative diseases, the association between serum IGF-1 levels and glaucoma has not been evaluated. This study was designed to evaluate whether serum IGF-1 levels are different in patients with Pseudoexfoliation (PEX) with or without glaucoma. The study was conducted with 110 participants(More)
Objective. To determine the effect of hemodialysis (HD) on choroidal thickness (CT). Methods. The right eyes of 41 patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) undergoing HD were included. All patients underwent an ophthalmic examination, including CT measurement via optical coherence tomography, intraocular pressure (IOP), blood pressure, and body weight(More)
