PURPOSE Punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) is an ocular inflammatory disease. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) allows detailed visualization of retinal and choroidal structures. We aimed to describe the retinal changes on SD-OCT associated with PIC lesions localized in the macula. METHODS Retrospective case series: PIC lesions not(More)
PURPOSE To compare the frequencies of attacks before and after immunomodulatory therapy (IMT) with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) in recurrent punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) and to report fundus autofluorescence (FAF) findings. METHODS Eight patients who had at least two recurrent episodes of increased activity before MMF and 12 months of documented(More)
Purpose. To evaluate macular thickness, agreement, and intraclass repeatability in three optical coherence tomography (OCT) devices: the time domain (TD) Stratus OCT and two spectral domain (SD) OCTs, Spectralis and Cirrus SD-OCT, in eyes with macular edema secondary to diabetic retinopathy (DR) and retinal vein occlusion (VO). Methods. In a prospective(More)
PURPOSE Recent studies postulated the presence of a probable relationship between pterygium and neoplasia. This study aimed to investigate the role of two oncogenic viruses, human papillomavirus (HPV) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), in the development of conjunctival pterygia. METHODS Polymerase chain reaction was used to identify the presence of HPV and(More)
PURPOSE To describe the bioactivity of an intercellular adhesion molecule inhibitor (efalizumab) in a patient with refractory uveitic macular edema. METHODS A 55-year-old man presented with idiopathic autoimmune uveitis and associated macular edema, which could not be controlled by regional and systemic corticosteroid and selected immunomodulatory(More)
A 55-year-old man who had multiple subretinal and choroidal yellowish lesions and episcleral nodules for 1.5 years was diagnosed as having nodular sclerochoroidopathy after developing classic features of posterior scleritis with choroidal and serous retinal detachment. Long-term therapy with steroids in combination with mycophenolate mofetil resulted in(More)
Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) that is widely used in the treatment of the connective tissue disorders can cause retinopathy. The fundus examination of a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus receiving HCQ revealed left incomplete bull's eye and pigmentary changes in macula in the right eye. Repeated visual field tests showed the paracentral and peripheral(More)
PURPOSE The study aims to evaluate a series of patients with initial diagnosis of ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (OHS) with progression and response to treatments consistent with multifocal choroiditis (MFC). METHODS Retrospective review of nine patients referred for management of recurrent OHS lesions. Serology panel was conducted to rule out autoimmune(More)
To look for a correlation between or the effect of anisometropia amblyopia on retrobulbar blood flow parameters. Peak systolic velocity (PSV) and end-diastolic velocity (EDV) of the ophthalmic artery (OA), central retinal artery (CRA), and temporal posterior ciliary artery (tPCA) were measured with color Doppler imaging, and systolic/diastolic ratio,(More)
