    2. Optical coherence tomography of iris mammillations

      Optical coherence tomography of iris mammillations
      A 10-year-old girl presented with blurred vision of 2 months. Uncorrected visual acuity was 20/20 in both eyes (OU). Refraction revealed 0.75 diopters of astigmatism OU. Visual blur was related to a moderate convergence insufficiency. The superior 90% of the left iris was darkly pigmented and velvety in consistency with regularly spaced protuberances (mammillations) (figure 1).

    3. Hand-held optical coherence tomography monitoring of submillimeter retinoblastoma treated with indocyanine green-enhanced transpupillary therapy

      Hand-held optical coherence tomography monitoring of submillimeter retinoblastoma treated with indocyanine green-enhanced transpupillary therapy
      Over recent years, hand-held optical coherence tomography (HH-OCT) has become critical for retinoblastoma diagnosis and management. We report precise HH-OCT findings in a case of sub-millimeter retinoblastoma treated with foveal-sparing indocyanine green-enhanced transpupillary thermotherapy (ICG-TTT). A 2-month-old Caucasian female with bilateral Group B retinoblastoma showed two recurrent macular tumors in the right eye, demonstrating 88 m and 37 m of growth to 344 m and 413 m in thickness, respectively ...

    7. Submillimeter retinoblastoma monitoring following transpupillary thermotherapy using hand-held optical coherence tomography

      Submillimeter retinoblastoma monitoring following transpupillary thermotherapy using hand-held optical coherence tomography
      Background Precise, submillimeter visualization of retinal microstructures is useful for treatment monitoring of retinoblastoma. Herein, we report the use of hand-held optical coherence tomography (HH-OCT) to document a nearly-invisible retinoblastoma and monitor tumor response to transpupillary thermotherapy (TTT). Case presentation A 3-week-old boy was diagnosed with unilateral familial retinoblastoma in the left eye, classified as group B, and treated with intravenous chemoreduction. At 13-month follow-up, the tumor in the left ...

    8. HAND-HELD OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY MONITORING OF CHEMORESISTANT RETINOBLASTOMA

      HAND-HELD OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY MONITORING OF CHEMORESISTANT RETINOBLASTOMA
      Purpose: Retinoblastoma (Rb) is a potentially fatal intraocular malignancy in children, and hand-held optical coherence tomography (HH-OCT) can assist in submillimeter detection and monitoring after treatment of Rb. Retinoblastoma located in the macula, or those with chemoresistance, can be among the most difficult to manage. We describe HH-OCT features in a case of chemoresistant macular Rb that eventually responded to plaque radiotherapy after failing intravenous chemotherapy and intraarterial chemotherapy. Methods ...

    9. Optical Coherence Tomography: Clinicopathologic Correlations - The 2016 Gordon K. Klintworth Lecture

      Optical Coherence Tomography: Clinicopathologic Correlations - The 2016 Gordon K. Klintworth Lecture
      Background/Aims: Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) has become a mainstay of ophthalmic practice that has revolutionized the assessment and treatment of a variety of ocular disorders. Studies that directly correlate SD-OCT and histopathology are necessary to demonstrate the actual nature of the retinal pathology responsible for the images that resemble histologic sections, but are generated by mathematical algorithms. Methods: Careful correlative light microscopy was performed on a small ...

      Purpose: To study changes in the foveal microvascular anatomy using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) after intravenous chemotherapy (IVC) for retinoblastoma (RB). Methods: A retrospective comparative casecontrol series included 10 age-matched normal eyes with no documented ocular pathology (control), 10 fellow eyes of patients with unilateral RB treated with IVC (RB fellow), and 10 eyes with extramacular RB in patients with bilateral RB treated with IVC (RB tumor).

      Parafoveolar retinoblastoma regression with foveal preservation following intra-arterial chemotherapy documented on hand-held optical coherence tomography in a newborn
      Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become an invaluable tool in retinoblastoma management, providing submillimeter visualization of tumor control following treatment. Herein, we document OCT-detection of a subtle tumor recurrence, allowing early intervention and achieving foveal microanatomy preservation. Case presentation A 3-week-old girl was diagnosed with bilateral familial retinoblastoma, classified as group D in the right eye (OD) and group B in the left eye (OS), and treated with intravenous ...

      A woman in her 60s presented with 2 months of blurred vision in the left eye, with visual acuity of 20/40. Examination of the left ocular fundus revealed spokelike foveal cysts. Fluorescein angiography showed no foveal leakage. En face optical coherence tomography (Optovue Inc) in the left eye revealed stellate hyporeflectivity ( Figure , A). A retinal cross-section scan revealed foveomacular retinoschisis involving the outer plexiform layer ( Figure , B). The fellow ...

    13. Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Torpedo Maculopathy

      Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Torpedo Maculopathy
      Torpedo maculopathy is a rare congenital anomaly of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). Various imaging modalities have been used to assess cases of torpedo maculopathy, including optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fundus autofluorescence (FAF). OCT angiography (OCTA) offers combined structural and flow characteristics of imaged lesions. The authors present OCTA findings in two cases of torpedo maculopathy. Common features include loss of RPE and choriocapillaris allowing greater visualization of larger ...
