    Preclinical ocular microvascular changes in juvenile dermatomyositis: A pilot optical coherence tomography angiography study

    Objectives To evaluate the macular and optic nerve head (ONH) vascular density, foveal avascular zone area, and outer retina and choriocapillaris flow in juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods Ten eyes of 10 patients with JDM and 15 age and sex-matched healthy controls were investigated in this prospective, cross-sectional study. The superficial capillary plexus (SCP) and deep capillary plexus (DCP), ONH, foveal avascular zone (FAZ) parameters, the flow area of the outer retina, and choriocapillaris were evaluated using OCTA. Results Vessel density (VD) of the parafovea ( p = 0.036) and parafoveal subregions ( p = 0.041 for ...
