    1. Use of Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography to Detect Congenital Zika Syndrome

      Use of Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography to Detect Congenital Zika Syndrome

      First identified in rhesus monkeys in Uganda in 1947, the Zika virus (ZIKV), a flavirus spread most commonly by the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitos, 1 was not implicated in human disease until 1953, when it was recognized in Nigeria to produce a mild, febrile illness. The virus, related to the pathogens that cause yellow fever, dengue, and the West Nile virus, 1 has emerged recently as a serious health care threat resulting in widespread panic across the globe, particularly in the Pacific and the Americas. The recent outbreak began in Brazil in 2015, with over 1 million people ...

    2. Choroidal Findings in Eyes With Birdshot Chorioretinitis Using Enhanced-Depth Optical Coherence Tomography

      Choroidal Findings in Eyes With Birdshot Chorioretinitis Using Enhanced-Depth Optical Coherence Tomography

      Purpose : The purposes of this study were to describe choroidal findings observed using optical coherence tomography with enhanced depth imaging (EDI-OCT) in eyes with birdshot chorioretinitis (BSCR) and to test the hypothesis that these findings are related to participant demographics, clinical characteristics, and treatment. Methods : In a multicenter, cross-sectional study, 172 eyes of 86 individuals with BSCR underwent a standardized clinical evaluation, including defined protocols for EDI-OCT imaging, with macular and peripapillary volume scans. Choroidal findings were compared to demographic information, ophthalmic examination findings, and treatment history, using logistic regression models. EDI-OCT images were evaluated by two independent, masked graders ...

    3. A New OCT Finding in Tuberculous Serpiginous-like Choroidopathy

      A New OCT Finding in Tuberculous Serpiginous-like Choroidopathy

      Purpose : To present a case of tubercular serpiginous-like choroiditis (SLC) with previously unreported choroidal findings on enhanced depth imaging OCT (EDI-OCT). Design : Case report. Methods : A 60-year-old female presented with decreased vision. Serpiginous choroidopathy was diagnosed. Laboratory workup revealed an infectious etiology. EDI-OCT revealed previously unreported choroidal findings. Results: Laboratory workup revealed nonreactive Treponema pallidum antibodies and positive QuantiFERON Gold. CT chest showed scars of prior granulomatous disease. OCT with EDI of active lesions demonstrated infiltration of the choroid, elevation of the RPE-Bruch’s membrane complex and focal increase of choroidal thickness. Conclusions: Choroidal infiltration with elevation of the RPE ...
