PURPOSE To describe the clinical outcomes of ocular syphilis. DESIGN Retrospective chart review. METHODS The charts of patients with ocular syphilis (regardless of human immunodeficiency virus [HIV] status) seen in a uveitis referral center between 1984 and 2014 were reviewed. RESULTS The study included 35 patients (61 eyes). Panuveitis was the most(More)
PURPOSE To study the clinical features and incidence rate of ocular complications in patients with punctate inner choroidopathy. METHODS This is a retrospective cohort study conducted in a single-center academic practice setting. Patients diagnosed with punctate inner choroidopathy at the Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins University from 1984 to 2012(More)
Two groups independently sequenced the Agrobacterium tumefaciens C58 genome in 2001. We report here consolidation of these sequences, updated annotation, and additional analysis of the evolutionary history of the linear chromosome, which is apparently limited to the biovar I group of Agrobacterium.
PURPOSE To describe the clinical presentation of uveitis with coincident onset of raised and indurated tattooed skin. DESIGN Case series. METHODS Seven consecutive patients were evaluated at a tertiary ophthalmologic facility with coincident uveitis and cutaneous tattoo induration over an 18-month period. All subjects underwent complete ophthalmic(More)
BACKGROUND We describe the spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) findings in three patients with acute syphilitic posterior placoid chorioretinitis (ASPPC). The SD-OCT images demonstrate the pathologic changes in ASPPC with a high level of anatomic detail and may provide information about the pathophysiology of the disease. FINDINGS We(More)
Purpose The purpose of this study was to describe fundus autofluorescence (FAF) findings in eyes with birdshot chorioretinitis (BSCR) and to compare findings to demographic, medical, and clinical characteristics. Methods In this multicenter, prospective, cross-sectional study, 172 eyes (86 patients) with BSCR were investigated. Participants underwent a(More)
PURPOSE The purposes of this study were to describe choroidal findings observed using optical coherence tomography with enhanced depth imaging (EDI-OCT) in eyes with birdshot chorioretinitis (BSCR) and to test the hypothesis that these findings are related to participant demographics, clinical characteristics, and treatment. METHODS In a multicenter,(More)
We report a case of cytomegalovirus (CMV) intraocular infection in an otherwise healthy 51-year-old patient, presenting atypically as isolated intermediate uveitis without retinitis or retinal vasculitis. The patient had a confirmed CMV infection as a cause of her intraocular inflammation via PCR DNA testing of an aqueous sample. Appropriate oral antiviral(More)
PURPOSE To report the potential benefit of pneumatic displacement with perfluoropropane in the acute treatment of traumatic macular hole and submacular hemorrhage. METHODS This article is a descriptive case report. Intravitreal injection of 0.3 mL of undiluted C3F8 was performed in an outpatient clinic setting, with strict face-down positioning for 7 days(More)
delayed-type hypersensitivity, in contrast to sarcoidosis. The temporal relationship between uveitis and swelling of skin tattoos is important in differentiating sarcoidosis from tattoo inflammation–related uveitis. Mansour and Chan described the tattoo swelling to precede uveitis by 1 week on repeated episodes (also reported by others). This repeated(More)
