    1. Optical coherence tomography of macular atrophy associated with microcephaly and presumed intrauterine Zika virus infection

      Optical coherence tomography of macular atrophy associated with microcephaly and presumed intrauterine Zika virus infection

      This case report describes the retinal optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in a microcephalic infant with macular atrophy presumably caused by intrauterine Zika virus infection. OCT demonstrated atrophy of the outer retinal layers and choriocapillaris, including the outer nuclear layer and ellipsoid zone, associated with retinal pigment epithelium hyper-reflectivity and increased OCT penetration into deeper layers of the choroid and sclera. A major concern associated with this infection is the apparent increased incidence of microcephaly in fetuses born to mothers infected with the Zika virus. It is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the upsurge in congenital microcephaly observed in Brazil ...

    2. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography in acute anterior uveitis

      Anterior segment optical coherence tomography in acute anterior uveitis

      Purpose: To analyze the corneal thickness and anterior chamber (AC) angle using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) in patients with acute anterior uveitis (AAU). Methods: Twenty two patients (24 eyes) were included. All patients underwent complete ophthalmological examination, applanation tonometry and AS-OCT at diagnosis and fifteen days after treatment. Results: Average corneal thickness before treatment was 564.2 ± 44.2 µm, 580.0 ± 44.3 µm and 580.1 ± 2.9 µm, respectively in central, pericentral and paracentral cornea. Fifteen days after treatment a significant decrease of corneal thickness was observed, with 529.5 ± 33.1 µm (p=0 ...
