    1. The use of anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) in demonstrating recurrence of vitreoretinal lymphoma (VRL) in the anterior vitreous

      The use of anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) in demonstrating recurrence of vitreoretinal lymphoma (VRL) in the anterior vitreous

      Background Primary vitreoretinal lymphoma (VRL) is a rare disease with 30–380 new cases in the United States per year. Its insidious process and spread to the central nervous system (CNS) leads to a mean 5-year survival rate from 41.4 to 71%. Medical treatment of VRL has been summarized extensively in the literature and involves intraocular rituximab and methotrexate as first line agents in unilateral VRL, with systemic chemotherapy to be considered in bilateral or CNS-involving disease. In addition, therapeutic “debulking” vitrectomy has been reported in the literature, with some limited success. Despite this, recurrence rate is high and ...

    2. ASYMPTOMATIC MULTIFOCAL PARACENTRAL ACUTE MIDDLE MACULOPATHY ASSOCIATED WITH JUVENILE DERMATOMYOSITIS OPTICAL COHERENCE ANGIOGRAPHY FINDINGS

      ASYMPTOMATIC MULTIFOCAL PARACENTRAL ACUTE MIDDLE MACULOPATHY ASSOCIATED WITH JUVENILE DERMATOMYOSITIS OPTICAL COHERENCE ANGIOGRAPHY FINDINGS

      Purpose: To describe a unique presentation of multifocal paracentral acute middle maculopathy in a young patient with juvenile dermatomyositis including optical coherence tomography angiography findings. Methods: Retrospective single case report. Patient: Seventeen-year-old male patient with a history of juvenile dermatomyositis presented for routine hydroxychloroquine screening. Results: Optical coherence tomography revealed undulations of the outer retinal layers and retinal thinning near the fovea in both eyes. Optical coherence tomography angiography revealed loss of flow void densities in the superficial and deep capillary plexi in both eyes. These findings were consistent with a diagnosis of paracentral acute middle maculopathy . Conclusion: To the ...

    3. Imaging of Iris Lesions With High-Speed Optical Coherence Tomography

      Imaging of Iris Lesions With High-Speed Optical Coherence Tomography

      n BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES:To image and measure iris tumors with optical coherence tomography (OCT). n PATIENTS AND METHODS:High-speed(2,000– 4,000 axial-scan/sec and 4–16 frames/sec) 1.3-micron wavelength anterior segment OCT prototypes were used to image 6 eyes of 6 patients with a variety of iris lesions, including focal iris nevus, diffuse iris nevus, amelanotic iris nevus, iris melanocytosis, and iris melanoma. OCT images were compared with slit-lamp photography and ultrasound biomicroscopy. n RESULTS: OCT at 1.3-micron wavelength could penetrate the full thickness of the iris lesions and allow three-dimensional measurement of lesion ...

    4. Optical Coherence Tomography in Retinal Arterial Occlusions: Case Series and Review of the Literature

      Optical Coherence Tomography in Retinal Arterial Occlusions: Case Series and Review of the Literature

      Retinal arterial occlusions (RAOs) are an uncommon source of monocular vision loss, typically occurring in patients over the age of 60. Diagnosis is typically made by history and clinical examination, while ancillary testing may include fluorescein angiography. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is not routinely utilized in the diagnostic assessment of RAO, and its role in the diagnosis and management of patients with RAO is still evolving. In this series, we review the literature on OCT findings in RAOs, particularly noting the role of OCT in delineating anatomic findings, chronicity and natural course, and functional outcomes. A case series of five ...
