    7. Anterior Segment-Optical Coherence Tomography Features In Blau Syndrome

      Anterior Segment-Optical Coherence Tomography Features In Blau Syndrome
      Blau syndrome (BS) is a rare granulomatous auto-inflammatory disease, characterized by the classic clinical triad of joints, skin and ocular involvements. Ocular manifestation usually consists in a bilateral insidious chronic anterior uveitis with a potential evolution to panuveitis. We describe the case of two siblings, an 8-years old female and a 5-years old male, with a diagnosis of BS, evaluated by Anterior Segment-Optical Coherence Tomography (AS-OCT). In the female patient ...

    8. Evaluation of corneal epithelial thickness in glaucomatous patients using anterior‐segment optical coherence tomography

      Evaluation of corneal epithelial thickness in glaucomatous patients using anterior‐segment optical coherence tomography
      The corneal epithelium represents one of the main structures that undergo degenerative alterations due to antiglaucomatous therapy. Chronic glaucoma therapy containing benzalkonium chloride induces epithelial cellular changes and inflammatory infiltration that in turn causes ocular surface changes resulting in ocular discomfort. Also age‐related changes can involve the tear film stability and the corneal epithelium surface with reduction of microvilli. The objective of this study is to gain insights about ...

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography to Assess Vascular Remodeling of the Choriocapillaris After Low-Fluence Photodynamic Therapy for Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy
      Background To evaluate the efficacy of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in identifying changes in the choriocapillaris layer after low-fluence verteporfin photodynamic therapy (vPDT) in patients affected by chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR). Methods Low-fluence vPDT was performed on 28 eyes of 27 patients with CSCR. All patients underwent the following tests at baseline and 6 months after treatment: best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, enhanced ...

      Optical coherence tomography angiography in optic nerve sheath meningioma
      This study describes Spectral Domain-Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) and Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCTA) features of Optic Nerve Sheath Meningioma (ONSM). A 22-year-old woman, diagnosed with meningiom encircling the right optic nerve inside the intraorbital segment optic canal at the magnetic resonance imaging, showed a normal fundus examination. Instead, SD-OCT and OCTA revealed alterations in the neurostructure and microvascular network of the optic nerve. Despite fundoscopy and fluorescein angiography, SD-OCT ...
