PURPOSE Hand, foot, and mouth disease is a contagious enteroviral infection occurring primarily in children and characterized by vesicular palmoplantar eruptions and erosive stomatitis. There are very few cases of unilateral acute idiopathic maculopathy associated with hand, foot, and mouth infection. We described a case with unilateral outer retinitis(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the short-term outcomes of treatment with intravitreal aflibercept in cases with wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) resistant to ranibizumab. METHODS The study included patients who had been undergoing follow-up for a minimum of three months at the Ankara University Faculty of Medicine Ophthalmology Department's Retina(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the outcomes of patients with vitreomacular traction syndrome (VMT) treated with triamcinolone acetonid (TA) assisted 23-gauge (23-G) transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy. METHODS Restrospective, case series. The medical charts of 13 eyes of 13 consecutive patients with VMT who underwent 23-gauge transconjunctival pars plana(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the results of surgical intervention and rate of recurrence in patients with periocular lymphangioma with respect to the anatomic extent of tumor involvement determined by neuroimaging studies. DESIGN Retrospective noncomparative case series. PARTICIPANTS Eighteen patients with periocular lymphangioma. METHODS All patients(More)
Fundus autofluorescence (FAF) is a noninvasive imaging technology that provides information on the distribution of lipofuscin within the retinal pigment epithelial cells. Progressive accumulation of lipofuscin within retinal pigment epithelial cells is involved in the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Fundus autofluorescence imaging(More)
In this era of evidence-based medicine, significant progress has been made in the field of pharmacotherapeutics for the management of diabetic macular edema (DME). A. number of landmark clinical trials have provided strong evidence of the safety and efficacy of agents such as anti-vascular endothelial growth factors for the treatment of DME. Decades of(More)
A 46-year-old man presented with a painless firm mass in the eyelid margin of the left lower eyelid, which had been present for 9 years. Biopsy nine years previously had not established a diagnosis. We performed excisional biopsy of the lesion and lateral advancement skin flap for reconstruction of the skin defect. Histopathologic and immunohistochemical(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of multiple intravitreal injections of ranibizumab on retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in patients with wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS This observational, comparative study included patients with 10 or more total ranibizumab injections and involved the measurement of RNFL thickness at(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the functional and anatomical outcome after intravitreal ranibizumab injection in 2 patients with cystoid macular edema (CME) related to Irvine-Gass syndrome. METHODS Two patients with pseudophakic CME refractory to current standard topical treatment were enrolled in this study. Intravitreal (0.5 mg/0.05 mL) ranibizumab injection was(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE To evaluate if fundus autofluorescence (FAF) patterns around geographic atrophy (GA) and the status of the fellow eye have an impact on GA progression. METHODS We included 54 eyes of 35 patients with GA. Areas of GA were quantified by RegionFinder software. RESULTS GA progression rates in eyes with a diffuse trickling pattern(More)
