    Commentary: Role of PASCAL and optical coherence tomography angiograpgy in the treatment of diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis caused by large live motile worm

    Different nematodes have been associated with diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis (DUSN) including Toxocara canis, Ancylostoma caninum, Strongyloides stercoralis, Ascaris lumbricoides , and Baylisascaris procyonis . [1] The clinical features of DUSN include subretinal tracks, small yellow-white spots on retina, altered internal limiting membrane (ILM) reflex, vitritis, vasculitis, retinal edema, live worm, alterations of the retinal pigment epithelium, narrowed retinal vessels, and optic disc atrophy especially in late phases. [2] The early signs of DUSN are often mistaken for entities that cause focal chorioretinitis, including toxoplasmosis, histoplasmosis, sarcoidosis, white dot syndromes, nonspecific optic neuritis, and papillitis. The late stage of DUSN is often ...
