Two hundred three cases of unilateral amblyopia with the loss of the good eye included 59 taken from literature and 144 obtained from a questionnaire sent to ophthalmologists. The improvement noted in both sources was quite different: 47.5% v 28.5%. Because the cases from the questionnaire constituted a much more random selection than those from the(More)
Oral lichen planus is a chronic inflammatory disease of adult onset. The etiopathology is based on a reaction against immunologically altered keratinocytes. There are variable forms of this condition, which at times make recognition difficult. Remissions are frequent. Associated oral carcinoma subsequent to the initial diagnosis of oral lichen planus is(More)
• Background: Fluorescein angiography (FA) has been widely used in the diagnostic evaluation of cboroidal tumors. Indocyanine green angiography (ICG-A), which permits better visualization of choroidal vasculature than FA, has been recently introduced into clinical practice. Only few reports exist on the ICG-A characteristics of choroidal tumors. • Methods:(More)
The purpose of this paper is to report on the possible deleterious effect of corticosteroids in central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR). We will describe three patients in whom CSCR was induced or aggravated by corticosteroids. Despite multiple reports describing the onset of CSCR or aggravation of existing lesions with corticosteroids, they are still used(More)
PURPOSE To report the cross-sectional structure of the retina and choroid in eyes with adult-onset vitelliform macular dystrophy as obtained by optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS Seven patients with adult-onset vitelliform macular dystrophy and one patient with Best disease were examined by fundoscopy, fluorescein and indocyanine green(More)
Creation of a transabdominal transdiaphragmatic pericardial window for life-threatening recurrent pericardial effusion has proved to be a safe minimally invasive technique. By inducing adequate pericardial sac decompression while avoiding single-lung ventilation and thoracic drainage in severely ill patients, it provides anatomopathologic diagnosis and can(More)
Fourty patients with a malignant melanoma of the choroid were treated with ruthenium applicators. Depending on the height of the tumour, the patients were divided into 3 groups. In the first group with a tumour height superior to 6 mm the results were poor as well from a functional point of view as considering tumour regression. In a second group with a(More)
