Imported Pythium insidiosum Keratitis After a Swim in Thailand by a Contact Lens-Wearing Traveler.
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 promp...
Cystoid macular degeneration in exudative age-related macular degeneration.
We reviewed the charts of 56 consecutive patients (19 male, 37 female; mean age ± standard deviation, 80.81 ± 4.8 years) with exudative age-related macular degeneration who received the last intravitreal ranibizumab injection at least 6 months before and were judged to have a fibroatrophic scar with...
Primate model of uveoretinitis and vasculitis/experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis induced in cynomolgus monkeys by retinal s antigen.
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 bil...
Appearance of regressing drusen on optical coherence tomography in age-related macular degeneration.
We interpreted as the inner Bruch's membrane (iBM) layer. "Type 2" multilaminar hyperreflectivity (found in 130 scans of 27 eyes) was characterized by an intense signal originating from the oBM layer. "Type 3" multilaminar fragmented hyperreflectivity (found in 22 scans of 11 eyes) was characterized...
Familial uveal melanoma: a report on two families and a review of the literature.
We discuss the body of evidence to establish whether there is an inherited cancer predisposition syndrome in patients with familial uveal melanoma. The statistical likelihood of such an uncommon tumour occurring independently in two or more family members leads us to believe that some cases of famil...
Angiography features of early onset drusen.
We performed a prospective study including 48 consecutive EOD patients. All of them had a complete ophthalmologic examination including FA and ICGA. BLD (67%) were extremely hyperfluorescent on FA and ICGA. ML (10%) was characterised by a combination of small radial and large round drusen with diffe...
