Diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis (DUSN) is a clinical syndrome characterized early by visual loss, vitritis, papillitis, and recurrent crops of gray-white retinal lesions and later by progressive visual loss, optic atrophy, retinal vessel narrowing, and diffuse pigment epithelial degeneration. Evidence is presented that it is caused by a nematode(More)
Six patients with evidence of secondary syphilis presented with visual loss in both eyes caused by large, placoid, yellowish lesions with faded centers at the level of the pigment epithelium in the macula and juxtapapillary areas. All eyes had vitreitis. All of the lesions showed a similar fluorescein angiographic pattern of early hypofluorescence and late(More)
This report concerns six patients with sessile and exophytic capillary hemangiomas of the optic nerve head and juxtapapillary retina. These are probably retinal vascular hamartomas, which are frequently misdiagnosed as unilateral papilledema, papillitis, choroiditis, choroidal neovascularization, or choroidal hemangioma. Stereo fluorescein angiography is(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize the ocular fundus findings of patients who suffered sudden visual loss associated with sexual activity. DESIGN Case series. SETTING Outpatient ophthalmic practice. PATIENTS Six patients presented with a precipitous decrease in vision in one eye with no apparent predisposing factors. After obtaining a careful history, each(More)
Thirty-one patients had senile macular disease with serous detachments of the retinal pigment epithelium without evidence of choroidal neovascularization. Of these 31 patients the natural history of 24 eyes was compared with 21 eyes treated with photocoagulation. Eight patients with bilateral detachments had treatment applied to one eye. There was no(More)
