Best vitelliform macular dystrophy (VMD) is a hereditary condition that causes childhood-onset macular dystrophy. In rare cases, VMD is accompanied by formation of a choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM). We report a case of CNVM secondary to Best VMD in a 10-year-old boy that was detected using optical coherence tomography angiography, a new noninvasive diagnostic modality that detects motion contrast in repeated B-scans to identify blood flow within vessels.

We report the rare case of an 8-year-old boy with spontaneous scleral perforation secondary to an isolated congenital chorioretinal coloboma. Visual acuity was 20/200 and examination revealed severe hypotony with subcapsular cataract, complete exudative retinal detachment, hypotonous optic nerve swelling, and hypotony retinal fold. In the temporal periphery, there was a chorioretinal coloboma with a central full-thickness defect. The scleral defect was successfully treated with an autologous temporalis fascia graft...

Joubert syndrome is a congenital neurodevelopmental disorder primarily affecting the midbrain and hindbrain. It is characterized by ataxia, hypotonia, and developmental delay as well as apnea or abnormal ocular motor function. We describe and present a video of a child with Joubert syndrome with an alternating skew deviation in primary position rather than on lateral gaze, which is a more characteristic phenotype of this condition.

PURPOSE: To study lens opacity in pediatric cataract images captured using ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM). METHODS: The medical records of patients operated on from September 2012 to October 2013 were reviewed retrospectively. Prior to surgery, patients were placed in the supine position under sedation with oral chloral hydrate for UBM imaging. Lens morphology was evaluated by UBM examination with a 50 MHz probe that was equipped with a water bag instead of the standard plastic shell...

Screening guidelines for retinopathy of prematurity recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus suggest screening infants of birth weight of ≤1500 g and/or 32 weeks' gestational age or less. In developing and middle-income countries, ROP has been reported in older and/or heavier infants. We prospectively studied 172 infants of gestational age 36 weeks and younger and/or birth weight of ≤3000 g over a period of 16 months. ROP was identified in 4 infants >32 weeks of age, 1 infant having a birth weight of 2000 g...

PURPOSE: To investigate the use of MultiColor Scanning Laser Imaging as an adjunct to traditional imaging modalities in the assessment of children with suspected disk swelling. METHODS: In this study of 20 consecutive children with suspected papilledema, MultiColor imaging was performed on all patients in addition to fundus examination, fundus autofluorescence, disk spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), and disk retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFL) measurement...

Sung-Bok Lee, Yong-Joon Yoon, Yeon-Hee Lee
Isolated bilateral absence of the inferior rectus muscle is a rare congenital anomaly. The usual presentations of this disorder involve apparent ocular deviations and abnormal head posture from an early age. A 45-year-old woman presented with a bilateral ptosis and lower scleral show. She had a limitation of infraduction in both eyes but was orthophoric in the primary position and had a normal head posture. Ocular motility testing and imaging confirmed a diagnosis of bilateral absence of the inferior rectus muscle; the ptosis was assumed to be a pseudoptosis...

PURPOSE: To assess the ability of the WaveScan WaveFront System (VISX Inc, Santa Clara, CA) to measure refractive errors in patients with difficult retinoscopy and to compare results to standard cycloplegic retinoscopy. METHODS: The medical records of patients with an ocular condition that could contribute to difficult or unreliable retinoscopy who underwent nondilated, noncycloplegic evaluation with the WaveScan WaveFront System were reviewed retrospectively. Results were compared to a standard cycloplegic retinoscopy...

We report the case of a 23-month-old girl with bilateral retinoblastoma that demonstrated absence of retinal lesions in one eye but had an isolated white tumor in the posterior chamber. Genetic testing confirmed a novel and de novo RB1 germline mutation in the proband that was not carried by her parents. After intravenous chemotherapy and brachytherapy to the eye with apparently disease-free retina, anatomic and functional preservation of the eye was achieved. The patient has been in remission for 18 months...

PURPOSE: To report the results of surgical treatment for intermittent or constant comitant exotropia in adults and to examine the factors associated with the surgical outcome. METHODS: The medical records of consecutive patients older than 18 years of age at the time of surgery for intermittent or constant comitant exotropia and with at least 1 year's follow-up were retrospectively reviewed. Surgical success was defined as postoperative esodeviation of <5(Δ), orthotropia, or exodeviation of <10(Δ)...

PURPOSE: To report strabismus surgery frequency and outcomes after monocular infantile cataract surgery with or without IOL implantation. METHODS: The Infant Aphakia Treatment Study (IATS) is a randomized, multicenter clinical trial comparing treatment of aphakia with a primary IOL or contact lens in 114 infants with a unilateral congenital cataract. This report is a secondary outcome analysis of ocular motor data from IATS patients who underwent strabismus surgery prior to age 5 years...

PURPOSE: To assess the sensitivity and specificity of weight gain, insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), and neonatal retinopathy of prematurity (WINROP) algorithm to predict proliferative retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), in a Turkish population of preterm infants. METHODS: The medical records of infants screened and monitored for ROP from 2007 to 2014 were analyzed retrospectively. Birth weights of infants born before 32 weeks' gestation were recorded on the WINROP online database system weekly until postmenstrual week 36...

We present a novel technique for the surgical management of sizeable medial upper eyelid colobomas that entails advancement of an ipsilateral upper lid flap sustained by a levator aponeurosis-Müller-conjunctiva pedicle and combined with a lateral semicircular flap from the affected lid. The technique was used in 4 consecutive pediatric patients of mean age 21.2 months and mean coloboma size 12.3 mm and resulted in sufficient cornea protection, rapid rehabilitation, and satisfying cosmesis.

Ophthalmomyiasis interna posterior is a rare condition caused by the invasion of the ocular posterior segment by the larval form of certain flies in the order Diptera. The main clinical features are reduced visual acuity, intense posterior uveitis, and neuroretinitis. Treatment of this condition is predominantly surgical, including argon laser photocoagulation for subretinal larva and pars plana vitrectomy for intravitreal infection. We report a case of ophthalmomyiasis interna posterior in a 12-year-old girl that masqueraded as orbital cellulitis and was successfully treated with Nd:YAG laser photodisruption...
