    1. Combined depth imaging of choroid in uveitis

      Combined depth imaging of choroid in uveitis

      Background Understanding the changes that occur in the choroid is of paramount importance in various uveitis entities. B-scan ultrasonography and indocyanine green angiography can be used to study choroid. Currently, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography is used as the standard noninvasive technique to study the choroid by enhanced depth imaging. Our aim was to study the structural visibility of the choroid using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in the same area of interest in patients with uveitis with posterior segment manifestations using conventional, enhanced depth imaging (EDI), and combined depth imaging (CDI) techniques. Results Fifty-eight (58) eyes of 48 patients between age ...

    2. Macular retinal and choroidal thickness in unilateral relentless placoid chorioretinitis analyzed by swept-source optical coherence tomography

      Macular retinal and choroidal thickness in unilateral relentless placoid chorioretinitis analyzed by swept-source optical coherence tomography

      Background The purpose of this study is to evaluate the retinal and choroidal thickness of the macular region in patients with unilateral relentless placoid chorioretinitis (RPC) and macular involvement. Patients diagnosed with RPC affecting only one eye underwent a comprehensive ophthalmologic examination including best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), axial length (AL) measurement, slit-lamp examination, and color fundus and autofluorescence photography. The macular region was scanned by swept-source optical coherence tomography in the 1,050-nm wavelength. Automated segmentations of the retina and the choroid were used to obtain the corresponding thickness values. Results A total number of three patients (two men and ...

    3. Longitudinal spectral domain optical coherence tomography changes in eyes with intraocular lymphoma

      Longitudinal spectral domain optical coherence tomography changes in eyes with intraocular lymphoma

      Background Cases of patients with primary intraocular lymphoma (PIOL) were retrospectively analyzed to describe the longitudinal intra-retinal morphological changes in PIOL as visualized on images obtained by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Results In a retrospective case series, Heidelberg Spectralis SD-OCT images obtained in the longitudinal evaluation of patients with biopsy-proven PIOL were analyzed and assessed. The images were graded for the presence of macular edema (ME), pigment epithelial detachment (PED), subretinal fluid (SRF), and hyperreflective signals. SD-OCT scans of five eyes from five patients were assessed. Patients showed signs of inflammation, such as ME and SRF, which were ...

    4. Multimodal imaging of sarcoid choroidal granulomas

      Multimodal imaging of sarcoid choroidal granulomas

      Background Enhanced-depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) provides high-resolution imaging of the choroid. Herein, we report multimodal imaging, including EDI-OCT, of a case of sarcoid choroidal granulomas. Findings A 63-year-old female with biopsy-suspected sarcoidosis presented with unilateral multifocal choroidal granulomas. Enhanced-depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) demonstrated a homogenous hyporeflective choroidal lesion with choriocapillaris thinning and sparing of the surrounding choroid. The patient was started on oral steroids with a weekly taper schedule. Within 5 weeks, the choroidal lesions had clinically resolved with return of normal-appearing choroidal architecture on EDI-OCT. Indocyanine green angiography, however, demonstrated hypofluoresence at the sites of ...

    5. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography findings of iris granulomas in Hansen's disease: a case report

      Anterior segment optical coherence tomography findings of iris granulomas in Hansen's disease: a case report

      Background A 50-year-old male was diagnosed to have a right eye sclerouveitis and left eye granulomatous anterior uveitis due to Hansen's disease. We are reporting the anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) findings of iris granuloma in this case. Findings: Skin biopsy revealed plenty of acid fast bacilli with a bacteriological index of 5 suggestive of multibacillary polar lepromatous leprosy. ASOCT revealed well-demarcated smooth-surfaced nodular lesion with internal hyporeflectivity corresponding to the areas of granuloma which decreased in size following treatment with antileprosy drugs and systemic and topical steroids. Conclusion ASOCT is a non-invasive technique to assess the extent ...

    6. High definition spectral domain optical coherence tomography of retinal pigment epithelial rip in a case of sympathetic ophthalmia

      High definition spectral domain optical coherence tomography of retinal pigment epithelial rip in a case of sympathetic ophthalmia

      Background We are reporting a case of granulomatous panuveitis in the right eye following penetrating injury to the left eye. Findings: A 34-year-old female was diagnosed to have sympathetic ophthalmia on treatment with systemic steroids. Vision did not improve in spite of aggressive systemic steroid therapy. On examination, patient had large retinal pigment epithelial rip nasal to the disc with exudative retinal detachment which was documented with FFA, ICG, and OCT. RPE rip is responsible for the persistent exudative retinal detachment in the right eye. Conclusions RPE rip can cause decreased vision due to persistence of retinal detachment in a ...
