    Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography of Choroidal and Outer Retinal Layer Thickness in the Sturge Weber Syndrome

    Purpose : To evaluate choroidal thickness and its effect on the outer retinal layers in patients with Sturge Weber syndrome (SWS). Materials and methods : Twenty eyes of 10 patients with SWS and 20 eyes of 10 healthy controls were evaluated at the ophthalmology unit of the Umberto I Policlinic, Rome from December 2015 to May 2015. Manual segmentation measurements of choroidal and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE)-photorec eptor layer (PHL) thickness were performed at the subfovea and at 500 µm intervals over 3 mm-long horizontal and vertical segments using enhanced depth spectral domain optical coherence tomography. Results : Mean choroidal thickness of ...
