Herein, we report a case of chronic endophthalmitis caused by a ceftazidime-resistant Rhizobium radiobacter strain in a 62-year-old male. The patient underwent an uneventful cataract extraction of the right eye a week prior to the appearance of symptoms (pain, redness, and blurring vision) which developed following a golf outing. Upon admission the patient(More)
Optic neuritis is the most common cause of decreased vision due to optic nerve dysfunction in patients who are 20 to 40 years of age. Optic neuritis, or inflammation of the optic nerve, is primarily due to idiopathic demyelination. Demyelinative lesions seen in optic neuritis are not unlike those seen in plaque associated with multiple sclerosis. In fact,(More)
A monoclonal antibody (OKT10), which was developed recently, reacts with pro-thymocytes, T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) cells, cells in normal bone marrow (including plasma cells), and activated T cells. Tissues from patients with cutaneous T cell lymphoma were studied for the presence of OKT10-reactive cells with the use of an indirect(More)
We evaluated the intra- and inter-observer variability of depth measurements of the optic disc in cadaver eyes using the Glaucoma-scope. Intra-observer variation of 10 separately captured images became significantly greater with increasing depth of the optic cup (p < 0.001). The standard deviation of depth measurements were 9.06 mu over the neural rim,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The optimal placement and laser energy levels of a new contact probe with a variable focus used for transscleral diode cyclophotocoagulation were compared with the diode laser noncontact technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fresh cadaver eyes were evaluated by a modified posterior Miyake view using videotape, light microscopy, and(More)
