BACKGROUND Most reports on intraocular medulloepithelioma have been single case descriptions. The authors reviewed ten patients with intraocular medulloepithelioma, discuss some little known clinical features of this entity, and make diagnostic and therapeutic recommendations. PATIENTS AND METHODS The records of the authors' patients with(More)
Conjunctival amyloidosis is an uncommon condition that occasionally is associated with systemic involvement. The clinical presentations of conjunctival amyloidosis are diverse. We present six patients with conjunctival amyloidosis who were referred to us with the suspicion of another conjunctival lesion. The conjunctival lesion was circumscribed in two(More)
CONTEXT Certain histopathologic risk factors in enucleated eyes are important indicators for adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with retinoblastoma. OBJECTIVES To determine the frequency of histopathologic risk factors in a large series of retinoblastomas treated by enucleation on file in the pathology laboratory of a large American eye hospital, assess(More)
Sixty-seven ocular tumors were studied with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and computed tomography (CT). These tumors included primary uveal melanoma (n = 55), circumscribed choroidal hemangioma (n = 3), diffuse choroidal hemangioma (n = 1), retinal capillary hemangioma (n = 1), medulloepithelioma (n = 1), choroidal nevus (n = 1), retinoblastoma (n = 1),(More)
We examined seven patients with Acanthamoeba keratitis. All patients had a history of soft contact lens use. Predisposing factors included use of homemade saline, hydrogen peroxide disinfection, a history of improper lens care, and swimming with contact lenses. Currently recommended medical therapy, including topical propamidine isethionate and(More)
Posterior 360 degrees retinotomy in conjunction with extensive peripheral retinectomy was necessary for retinal reattachment in 18 eyes. A visual acuity of 20/400 or better was achieved in 22% of the patients; in patients with rubeosis, regression was found in 89%. Of the hypotonus eyes, preoperatively 78% were normotensive postoperatively after removal of(More)
Melanocytoma is a deeply pigmented variant of melanocytic nevus that classically occurs in the optic disk, sometimes with contiguous involvement of the adjacent retina or choroid. Historically, this tumor was often confused with malignant melanoma both clinically and histopathologically. Today, however, it is generally recognized by its typical clinical(More)
