BACKGROUND Recent studies have shown that the recently identified organism Candida dubliniensis is less pathogenic than the more common Candida albicans. Due to its rare nature, C. dubliniensis has been previously reported as the causative organism in endophthalmitis in only three cases. We undertook a multicenter, retrospective, consecutive case series to(More)
BACKGROUND To describe the microbiological spectrum and antibiotic sensitivities of organisms causing culture-proven endophthalmitis in Queensland, Australia, and to compare results with similar studies from other parts of Australia and other countries. METHODS A retrospective, multicentre, non-comparative, consecutive case series. Public hospital(More)
Conjunctival mucoepidermoid carcinoma is a very rare but highly aggressive conjunctival neoplasm with 42 previously reported cases. We report the case of a 56-year-old male with a left ocular surface squamous neoplasm, which was subsequently treated with excision and autoconjunctival graft. Histopathology of the operative specimen reported a low-grade(More)
Chronic infantile neurological cutaneous and articular (CINCA) syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant autoinflammatory disease. We report the cases of monozygotic twins with CINCA syndrome whose predominant ocular manifestation was inflammatory rod-cone retinal dystrophy. Atypically, there were significant differences between twins in phenotype severity,(More)
Acanthosis nigricans (AN) is a dermatopathy associated with insulin-resistance, drugs, endocrine disorders, chromosomal abnormalities (benign AN), and neoplasia (malignant AN). Malignant AN (MAN) is a rare paraneoplastic skin syndrome most commonly associated with gastric adenocarcinoma and other intra-abdominal malignancies. We report the case of a(More)
Leber congenital amaurosis is a severe retinal dystrophy that causes blindness or severe visual impairment, usually before the age of 1 year. We present the case of a 13-year-old girl with Leber congenital amaurosis who developed an exudative vasculopathy. She was successfully treated with cryotherapy and argon green laser. To our knowledge, only 4 cases of(More)
BACKGROUND To describe the first reported case of toxic optic neuropathy secondary to docetaxel (Taxotere®) chemotherapy. CASE PRESENTATION A 53-year-old female presented with predominantly unilateral visual loss, but extensive bilateral visual field defects and bilateral optic nerve head swelling 2 weeks after first dose of docetaxel (Taxotere®) and(More)
Gyrate atrophy of the choroid and retina is a rare chorioretinal dystrophy inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. We describe the first documented case of gyrate atrophy from Australia in a 56-year-old woman with a history of previous diagnosis of retinitis pigmentosa and worsening night vision in her right eye over several years. She was myopic and(More)
Granuloma faciale (GF) is a rare, inflammatory, cutaneous disorder of unknown aetiology. It presents clinically as one or several well-circumscribed violaceous papules, plaques, and nodules almost exclusively confined to the facial region. Rarely, extrafacial lesions can occur, most often on sun-exposed sites. We report a case of extrafacial GF in a(More)
