      Structural Retinal Assessment Using Optical Coherence Tomography and Fundus Fluorescein Angiography in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Patients

      Background Ocular manifestations in systemic lupus erythematosus ( SLE ) can be the presenting symptom of the disease or a sight-threatening complication. Objectives To detect different structural retinal changes in patients with SLE who had no ophthalmological symptoms and investigate the relationship between different retinal changes and the disease activity assessed by the Systemic Lupus Erythromatosus Disease Activity Index score. Study Design A descriptive pilot study from January 2016 to January 2017. Methods Fifty-two eyes of 26 patients diagnosed to have SLE were examined using visual acuity assessment, fundus examination, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA). Results Fundus fluorescein ...
