    Changes In Retinal Thickness On Optical Coherence Tomography From Intravitreal Melphalan

    PURPOSE To quantify changes in central retinal thickness (CRT) on intraoperative spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) pre- and post- intravitreal melphalan (IVM) injection for retinoblastoma (Rb). METHODS Retrospective review of 5 eyes of 5 patients with Rb without macular tumor involvement treated with IVM injection for vitreous seeding. Automated and manual ETDRS measurements of CRT sub-foveally were derived from SD-OCT images pre- and post- IVM injection. RESULTS Mean age of patients at first IVM was 512 days (range=133-1005). Mean follow-up duration was 266 days (range=21-532). Grade 1, Grade IV, and Grade V chorioretinal toxicity occurred in 2 ...
