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)
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)
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 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)
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)
PURPOSE To investigate fundus autofluorescence (FAF) patterns in patients with nonexudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and to test if FAF patterns affect the development of choroidal neovascularization (CNV). METHODS One hundred one patients with early AMD underwent a detailed ophthalmological examination. Fundus autofluorescence imaging was(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)
PURPOSE To assess the role of vitreomacular adhesion (VMA) in visual and anatomic outcomes in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME). DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS Data from patients enrolled in the Ranibizumab for Edema of the Macula in Diabetes: Protocol 3 with High Dose (READ-3) study were analyzed. METHODS In the READ-3(More)
