  1. Imported pythium insidiosum keratitis after a swim in Thailand by a contact lens-wearing traveler.

    The Journal of tropical medicine and hygiene 92(2):270 (2015) PMID 25535313 PMCID PMC4347328

    A 30-year-old woman with a history of contact lens wear and exposure to swimming pool water in Thailand presented with a non-responsive, progressive corneal ulcer of the right eye. Confocal microscopy evidenced septate linear branching structures, raising suspicion of fungal keratitis. She was p...
  2. Cystoid macular degeneration in exudative age-related macular degeneration.

    American Journal of Ophthalmology 152(1):100 (2011) PMID 21570056

    To investigate the prevalence and clinical significance of cystoid macular degeneration in eyes that underwent intravitreal ranibizumab injections for exudative age-related macular degeneration. Retrospective, interventional case series. We reviewed the charts of 56 consecutive patients (19 male...
  3. Angiography features of early onset drusen.

    British Journal of Ophthalmology 95(2):238 (2011) PMID 20610475

    Drusen are rarely observed in patients < 50 years of age. Two types of early onset drusen (EOD) are commonly described: basal laminar drusen (BLD) and drusen associated with Malattia Leventinese (ML). Our purpose was to classify the phenotype of EOD on the basis of fundus examination, and fluore...
  4. Cystoid Macular Degeneration in Exudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration

    American Journal of Ophthalmology 152(1):100 (2011) PMID 21570056

    Purpose To investigate the prevalence and clinical significance of cystoid macular degeneration in eyes that underwent intravitreal ranibizumab injections for exudative age-related macular degeneration.
  5. Primate model of uveoretinitis and vasculitis/experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis induced in cynomolgus monkeys by retinal s antigen.

    Ophthalmic Research 40(3-4):181 (2008) PMID 18421236

    We aimed to describe the clinical and angiographic changes in an experimental model of autoimmune uveoretinitis and vasculitis in primates. Six cynomolgus monkeys received a single subcutaneous immunization with 100 microg of human S antigen with complete Freund's adjuvant. All the animals had a...
  6. Familial uveal melanoma: a report on two families and a review of the literature.

    Acta Ophthalmologica Scandinavica 81(4):389 (2003) PMID 12859267

    A total of 69 families affected by uveal melanoma have been reported in the literature. This report describes two additional families. In addition to presenting these cases, which constitute exceptions, the paper reviews the literature. Two families, each with two affected members, were analysed...
  7. Indocyanine Green Videoangiography of Angioid Streaks

    American Journal of Ophthalmology 119(2):136 (1995)

    Purpose The fluorescein angiographic features of angioid streaks are variable, and angioid streaks and their main complication, choroidal neovascularization, can sometimes be difficult to visualize in the presence of diffuse pigment migration, diffuse atrophy of the retinal p...
  8. Retinal Detachment After Choroidal Ischemia

    American Journal of Ophthalmology 104(4):364 (1987)

    Injection of a 15-μm microsphere suspension through one or two vortex veins of nine monkey eyes caused various degrees of sectorial choroidal ischemia, which were documented by fluorescein angiography and electron microscopy. The severity of the lesions to the fundus depended on the vo...
