SUMMARY Evolution and natural history of cerebral aneurysms is a dynamic process. Spontaneous regression in size or complete disappearance of an aneurysm is a known phenomenon, more commonly noted in giant intracranial aneurysms. However, reappearance or regrowth of such aneurysms is rare with few anecdotal reports. We report a series of four cases(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of Candida albicans endophthalmitis with no identifiable predisposing risk factors. CASE REPORT A 57-year-old male presented with a 3-day history of worsening floaters and reduced visual acuity. Fundoscopy and optical coherence tomography showed presence of fluffy white preretinal and intraretinal infiltrates. With no past medical(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the impact of lesion size on the observed growth of the choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) following the first application of photodynamic therapy (PDT). METHODS A retrospective study of consecutive patients with subfoveal classic CNV or predominantly classic CNV undergoing first verteporfin photodynamic therapy (VPDT) according to(More)
An 18-year-old girl presented with a persistent skin eruption of 6 years duration. She had skin-coloured follicular papules involving the trunk, proximal extremities, neck and face. Histopathology revealed spongiosis of the follicular infundibulum and infiltration with lymphocytes and neutrophils. Treatment with oral vitamin A and topical retinoic acid was(More)
PURPOSE To assess the comparability and intra-/ interobsever reliability of central anterior chamber depth measurements obtained using the Pentacam and IOLMaster. METHODS Anterior chamber depth was measured in 50 eyes (25 healthy volunteers)-three times on each eye by two independent observers with each method. A total of 12 measurements were performed on(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to describe bilateral visual outcomes and the effect of incomplete follow-up after 3 years of ranibizumab therapy for neovascular age-related macular degeneration. Secondarily, the demands on service provision over a 3-year period were described. METHODS Data on visual acuity, hospital visits, and injections were(More)
Abscesses involving the cavum septum pellucidum are rare and, owing to their location, detection may be difficult with routine conventional computed tomography (CT). Only a few isolated cases have been reported and mostly in children. We report a case of abscess involving the cavum septum pellucidum in an adult and its appearance on multi-slice spiral CT.
Orbital cysticercosis with both ocular and extraocular involvement is common in endemic areas. The presence of scolex is considered diagnostic of cysticercosis. We sought to compare multi-slice CT and 3D steady state MR in the identification of scolex in orbital cysticercosis. Three patients with orbital cysticercosis (two extra-ocular, one ocular) were(More)
We report two cases of sudden loss of vision in the second eye, within a few hours of loss of vision in the first, in association with occult giant cell arteritis. Both cases presented with bilateral disc edema. The importance of starting steroid therapy to prevent sight- or life-threatening complications, as soon as a diagnosis is suspected is emphasized.
