    1. Role of optical coherence tomography angiography in Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease

      Role of optical coherence tomography angiography in Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease

      Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease (VKH) is an autoimmune severe multisystem condition characterized by both ocular and systemic findings that should be promptly recognized and treated. Although invasive imaging modalities, namely fluorescein angiography and indocyanine green angiography, are still the gold standard for the diagnosis and follow-up of the ocular findings in VKH, the role of retinal non-invasive imaging including optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is under investigation and is not mentioned in the current diagnostic criteria of VKH. The aim of this manuscript was to report the clinical course and the multimodal retinal imaging of a VKH case and to discuss the ...

    2. Multilayered retinal pigment epithelial detachment: an optical coherence tomography angiography perspective

      Multilayered retinal pigment epithelial detachment: an optical coherence tomography angiography perspective

      A new entity termed multilayered pigment epithelial detachment is seen to occur with the use of multiple intravitreal anti-VEGF agents. A distinct appearance of a spindle-shaped elevation with bands of hyporeflective and hyperreflective tissue is seen on optical coherence tomography. We describe a novel finding on optical coherence tomography angiography which includes a large type 1 choroidal neovascular membrane underlying this elevation. A large vascular network is seen. It is thought to be protective in nature and may prevent further degeneration.

    3. Delayed spontaneous closure of traumatic macular hole in a 66-year-old patient – role of optical coherence tomography follow-up

      Delayed spontaneous closure of traumatic macular hole in a 66-year-old patient – role of optical coherence tomography follow-up

      Objective: To report a case of delayed spontaneous closure of traumatic macular hole at 5 months in a 66-year-old man. Traumatic macular holes generally do not close spontaneously after 4 months and over 3 0 y ears of age. Methods: A 66-year-old man presented with central blurred vision and metamorphopsia in his right eye for 3 weeks after previous ocular blunt trauma occurring 2 months earlier. Best corrected visual acuity was 6/36 in his right eye, fundus examination and OCT revealed right traumatic macular hole. Results: 4 weeks later, best corrected visual acuity was 6/18, OCT showed initial ...

    4. Evaluation of 1-year follow-up results of macular telangiectasia type 2 cases by optical coherence tomography angiography

      Evaluation of 1-year follow-up results of macular telangiectasia type 2 cases by optical coherence tomography angiography

      The results of 1-year follow-up with optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) of 3 patients with macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel 2) were evaluated. The 3X3 mm OCTA imaging was performed in January 2017 and February 2018. The superficial and deep capillary plexus vascular density changes of the whole area, the parafoveal temporal and parafoveal nasal areas were examined. The mean whole, parafoveal temporal, and parafoveal nasal vessel densities at superficial capillary plexus were 51.31, 50.39, 54.57 at baseline and 49.93, 46.79, 51.83 at 1-year follow-up, respectively. The mean whole, parafoveal temporal and parafoveal nasal ...

    5. Optical coherence tomography and fundus autofluorescence findings in presumed congenital simple retinal pigment epithelium hamartoma

      Optical coherence tomography and fundus autofluorescence findings in presumed congenital simple retinal pigment epithelium hamartoma

      Aim: Presumed congenital simple retinal pigment epithelium hamartoma is a rare benign lesion of the macula that mimics congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and combined hamartoma of the retina and the RPE; newer imaging modalities can help in diagnosis. We report three patients with presumed congenital simple RPE hamartoma, and describe the enhanced-depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) and fundus autofluorescence (FAF) findings. Methods: Two patients were asymptomatic; one had an intraocular foreign body in addition to the hamartoma. All had a similar jet black, elevated lesion in the macula, sparing the fovea. EDI-OCT showed a characteristic ...
