    Optical coherence tomography angiography changes in radial peripapillary capillaries in Leber hereditary optic neuropathy

    Purpose To present a report of longitudinal changes in radial peripapillary capillaries (RPC) and changes in retinal full thickness (RFT) and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) in a patient with Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON). Observations A 42-year-old man presented with acute- and presymptomatic-stage LHON in the left (OS) and right (OD) eyes, respectively, at the initial visit. Onset of LHON in the OD was observed 2 months after the initial visit. Once the temporal RNFL started to decrease in thickness, the areas of temporal RPC defects and RFT thinning gradually increased, indicating that these factors might be correlated ...
