    1. Retinal nerve fiber layer and macular thinning in systemic lupus erythematosus: an optical coherence tomography study comparing SLE and neuropsychiatric SLE

      Retinal nerve fiber layer and macular thinning in systemic lupus erythematosus: an optical coherence tomography study comparing SLE and neuropsychiatric SLE

      Objective Due to the lack of reliable biomarkers in diagnosing and monitoring neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus (NPSLE), the aim of this study was to examine the utility of measurements obtained through spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) as a biomarker for NP involvement in SLE. Methods Retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macula scans were performed using SD-OCT on 15 NPSLE patients, 16 SLE patients without NP symptoms (non-NP SLE), and 16 healthy controls. Macular volume and thickness of the central macula and peripapillary RNFL were compared between the groups and to scores on two validated cognitive tests. Results NPSLE ...

    2. Follow-up of lupus choroidopathy with optical coherence tomography

      Follow-up of lupus choroidopathy with optical coherence tomography
      A 36-year-old female followed with the diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus complained of bilateral visual loss. Ophthalmological examination revealed disc edema with irregular borders, edematous and pale retina with widespread cotton wool spots, intraretinal hemorrhages and serous retinal detachment in both eyes. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans showed intraretinal and subretinal fluid creating cystic cavities with central subfield macular thickness values of 994 and 912┬Ám in the right and left eye, respectively. The follow-up scans after the treatment with systemic steroid, acetylsalicylic acid and cyclosporine documented resolution of this fluid accumulation and a decrease in macular thickness measurements. These clearly ...
