      Swept source optical coherence tomography and optical coherence tomography angiography in pediatric enhanced S-cone syndrome: a case report

      Background Enhanced S-cone syndrome is an autosomal recessive retinal dystrophy related to a defect in a nuclear receptor gene ( NR2E3 ) that leads to alteration in cells development from rod to S-cone. This retinal dystrophy may be associated with retinal schisis. The aim of this report is to describe structural optical coherence tomography and optical coherence tomography angiography features in a case of enhanced S-cone syndrome associated with macular schisis. Case presentation A Caucasian 13-year-old girl underwent measurement of best corrected visual acuity, ophthalmoscopic evaluation, and fundus autofluorescence examination. Photopic and scotopic electroretinography were carried out as well. Enhanced S-cone syndrome ...

      Effect of intravitreal dexamethasone on macular edema in von Hippel-Lindau disease assessed using swept-source optical coherence tomography: a case repor

      Background Von Hippel-Lindau disease is a rare hereditary syndrome caused by germinal mutations in a von Hippel-Lindau tumor-suppressing gene. Retinal hemangioblastoma is the ocular hallmark lesion of von Hippel-Lindau disease. Case presentation A 20-year-old Caucasian woman presented to our institution with painless visual impairment in the right eye. A fundus ophthalmoscopic evaluation and swept-source optical coherence tomographic examination revealed a retinal hemangioblastoma associated with cystoid macular edema. On the basis of the clinical ocular findings and genetic analysis, von Hippel-Lindau disease was diagnosed. Following an intravitreal injection of ranibizumab, off-label administration of intravitreal dexamethasone was considered to reduce the edema ...

    3. Evaluation of bilateral central retinal artery occlusions with optical coherence tomography-based microangiography

      Evaluation of bilateral central retinal artery occlusions with optical coherence tomography-based microangiography

      Background We report a case of bilateral central retinal artery occlusion and the evaluation of retinal vasculature and capillaries by using optical coherence tomography angiography. Case presentation A 75-year-old white man presented with central retinal artery occlusion in one eye and underwent a carotid angioplasty. Upon discontinuing anticoagulant, he had a subsequent central retinal artery occlusion in the other eye. Optical coherence tomography angiography images were obtained to compare the retinal microvasculature in both eyes. Conclusions Atrophy of the involved retina continues for several weeks after central retinal artery occlusion but the loss of retinal capillaries is immediate and stable ...
