      Optical coherence tomography imaging of presumed Cryptococcus neoformans infection localized to the retina

      Purpose To report spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) findings of presumed Cryptococcus neoformans infection limited to the retina . Methods We report a 39-year-old male with decreased vision for 3 months. Clinical examination revealed multiple cream-colored retinal lesions in the posterior pole of both eyes. SD-OCT demonstrated multiple areas of discrete, hyperreflective deposits in the inner retina, outer retina, and subretinal space without evidence of choroidal involvement. Fundus autofluorescence demonstrated areas of hyperautofluorescence of lesions with variable areas of hypoautofluorescence. Results Subsequent laboratory workup revealed systemic Cryptococcus neoformans infection. After 3 months of systemic antifungal treatment and follow-up, there was clinical ...

    2. Pilot Study of Doppler optical coherence tomography of retinal blood flow following laser photocoagulation in poorly controlled diabetic patients

      Pilot Study of Doppler optical coherence tomography of retinal blood flow following laser photocoagulation in poorly controlled diabetic patients

      Purpose: To investigate the effect of panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) on retinal blood flow and shear rate using Doppler Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) in poorly controlled diabetics with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). Methods: Prospective interventional pilot study in patients with a new clinical diagnosis of PDR. Retinal blood flow and vessel diameter was measured using Doppler FD-OCT according to a previously described method, immediately before PRP treatment and 7-8 weeks after the last PRP session. Results:10 patients with poorly controlled PDR (mean hemoglobin A1c= 9.2 +/-2.0%) and 10 control subjects were included in the study. PDR patients ...
