Electroretinograms (ERGs) were measured in 15 patients with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). Seven of the patients had neovascularization of the iris (NVI) at the time of testing, and two developed NVI within one month of testing; six did not have NVI or any other form of neovascularization (NV) and were no longer considered to be at risk for NV from(More)
PURPOSE The visual prognosis in giant cell arteritis (GCA) was evaluated over a 5-year period. METHODS The authors reviewed the records of all patients with a diagnosis of GCA established at the Mayo Clinic over a 5-year period regarding visual status. Follow-up data for these patients were obtained 5 years later. RESULTS Of the 245 patients studied, 34(More)
We present three cases of the adult opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome in patients with systemic carcinoma. In addition to opsoclonus and myoclonus, other clinical components of the syndrome can include ataxia, tremor, gait and stance dysfunction, altered mental status, and head and face dyskinesias. The most common etiologies are idiopathic, paraneoplastic, and(More)
Electroretinograms (ERGs) were recorded in 94 patients with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). Of these 94, 11 had neovascularization of the iris (NVI) at the time of testing, 25 later developed NVI, and 58 did not develop NVI during a follow-up period that varied from 1 1/2 to 5 years. The ERG recorded at the patient's presentation visit predicted the(More)
In order to determine which layers of the corneal stroma bear the stress of the intraocular pressure, 6.0-mm nonpenetrating trephine incisions were made centrally in one eye of each of 16 adult albino rabbits. After epithelial healing, the central corneal thickness was measured over 3 hr at 50 mmHg intraocular pressure in both eyes of the anesthetized(More)
Between 1964 and 1982, 89 marginal myotomies were performed, 70 on the medial rectus with lateral rectus resection as a combined secondary procedure for esotropia. Successful realignment was attained in 51% of the cases (for both distance and near measurements); undercorrection occurred in 34% (either distance or near), and overcorrection in 14% (either(More)
Eight cases of non-painful vascular staining of extremities distal to injection sites for fluorescein angiography are reported. These responses, which are possibly associated with previous vascular inflammation, do not represent intra-arterial injection or extravasation, and do not affect the photographic results of the procedure. Reactions to intravenous(More)
An optic nerve hemangioblastoma arising in the optic nerve of a patient with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome is reported. This represents the 10th published example of a hemangioblastoma arising at this site, the second description of the magnetic resonance imaging features of a hemangioblastoma at this location, and the second patient from whom an optic nerve(More)
