1. Peripapillary intrachoroidal cavitation in high myopia: reappraisal

    Purpose To evaluate optical coherence tomography (OCT) and clinical findings of a peripapillary lesion in high myopia recently named peripapillary detachment in pathologic myopia (PDPM) or intrachoroidal cavitation. Methods Observational case report by chart review, analysis of colour fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, and OCT in 16 eyes of 12 patients with myopic degeneration and the presence of a slightly elevated, patchy peripapillary, yellow-orange lesion on the fundus. Results Patients were mean age 53.110.7 years, with a spherical-equivalent refractive error of -10.993.33 D and mean axial length of 27.341.44 mm. The mean best-corrected visual acuity ...
