    Characterisation of macular superficial vessel density alteration in preclinical ethambutol-induced optic neuropathy using optical coherence tomography angiography

    Aim To investigate the changes in macular vessel density (mVD) and its relationship to macular ganglion cell–inner plexiform layer (mGCIPL) thickness in patients receiving ethambutol (EMB) therapy for tuberculosis without recognisable clinical symptoms or signs of EMB-induced optic neuropathy (EON). Methods A total of 23 eyes of 13 patients using EMB therapy for 6 months without EON (preclinical EON) as the EMB group, 40 eyes of 23 healthy individuals as the normal control group and 18 eyes of 10 patients with tuberculosis before receiving EMB therapy as the blank control group were retrospectively analysed. The mean peripapillary retinal nerve ...
