CASE REPORTS We describe 2 patients who developed ocular side effects during treatment with topiramate. One was a 16-year-old woman with generalized seizures who developed a homonymous hemianopia after using topiramate 125 mg per day for 12 weeks, and the other was a 24-year-old epileptic female who developed a bilateral maculopathy after using topiramate(More)
INTRODUCTION Most pituitary adenomas are clinically inactive. In patients with long-standing compression of the optic chiasm, ganglion cells may undergo axonal degeneration. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) is able to identify retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and ganglion cell loss in the retina. We present a case in which SD-OCT was(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure interleuquin-6 (IL-6) levels in the vitreous body of patients with retinal detachment (RD).
