Tanuj Dada, Dewang Angmo, Shibal Bhartiya, Karthikeya Ramananda
We describe a novel technique to bleb needling by injecting subconjunctival ologen through an intraocular lens (IOL) delivery system to modulate wound healing in a failing filter. Bleb needling with 26G needle was performed, followed by subconjunctival injection of a biodegradable collagen implant using an IOL delivery system with cartridge in two eyes with a failing filter and high intraocular pressure (IOP). Postoperatively, the bleb was diffusely elevated, and the IOP was maintained between 10 and 14 mmHg at 6 weeks, 3 and 6 months follow-up...

We describe a case of a 28-month-old boy who presented to our emergency department with a right orbital penetration by an iron nail. At presentation, no pain or functional loss were noted. Plain head radiographs and computed tomography were performed and demonstrated a two centimeters long nail penetrating the right orbit. The foreign body was extracted carefully in the operating room. No complications were observed upon follow-up. Rarely, orbital penetration by an iron-nail can present without functional disturbances or pain and is not necessarily accompanied by sequelae...

PURPOSE: To report the visual result of Surgery for traumatic macular hole with choroidal rupture running across papillomacular bundle. METHOD: Observation case report Patient 20 year old male patient presented with acute vison loss in OS with BCVA reduced to 20/80 following blunt trauma. Examination revealed full thickness macular hole with choroidal rupture between disc and macula, spanning across papillomacular bundle (PMB) in OS. Patient underwent 25G Vitreous Surgery with ILM peeling and SF6 injection for OS...

Wernicke's Encephalopathy (WE) is a potentially devastating disorder, which if not diagnosed and treated at the earliest, could lead to dangerous neurological and ophthalmological complications. We report the ocular manifestations of WE in a pregnant woman with hyperemesis gravidarum.

A tonic pupil is usually caused due to parasympathetic denervation of the iris sphincter muscles. It's usually seen in females and in 80 % cases it's unilateral, and 4% of these cases progress to bilateral involvement. Adie's tonic pupil has been reported in literature to have multiple syndromic associations. Simultaneous bilateral occurrence of Adie's tonic pupil in an asymptomatic healthy adult male is sparsely reported in literature. The diagnostic dilemma in the setting of a busy clinical practice is henceforth discussed...

To discuss diagnostic strategies and management options in cases with suspected valsalva maculopathy (VM), to optimize visual outcome. We describe six cases with suspected VM. The preretinal hemorrhage resolved spontaneously in four out of six patients, without any intervention. One patient underwent neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet hyaloidotomy and the other proceeded to have a vitrectomy for persistent diffuse vitreous hemorrhage. Considering the evidence available and the outcomes of our patients, we have devised a treatment algorithm for treating VM, which is elaborated in this article...

A 34-year-old female a known scleroderma patient presented to us with ocular manifestations in the form choroiditis along with optic nerve involvement. Blood investigations were done, and the ocular findings were confirmed by fundus fluorescein angiography. She was successfully managed with systemic steroid therapy. Among the protean ocular manifestations in scleroderma, only a few cases of choroidal involvement have been reported. Further, clinical and histopathological studies may be needed to throw light on the exact etiopathogenesis...

The development of a full-thickness macular hole (FTMH) after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) repair is a rare occurrence. We report the first case of rapid MH formation with internal limiting membrane (ILM)-like hyper-reflective bridging membrane under silicone oil (SO) meniscus, noted on the first postoperative day (POD) postvitrectomy for RRD. A 57-year-old man presented with best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) of perception of light with immature cataract and total RRD in the left eye...

Stuti Astir, Daraius Shroff, Charu Gupta, Cyrus Shroff
Large traumatic macular holes (TMHs) tend to be irregular and have a variable predictability. The inverted flap technique makes use of remnants of internal limiting membrane (ILM) at the periphery of the MH. The peeled-off ILM contains Müller cell fragments which can induce gliosis and help in closure of MH. We operated on a case of large TMH (~899 μ minimum linear diameter) with choroidal rupture and subretinal hemorrhage in a young female with the inverted flap technique of ILM peeling and observed successful closure of the MH...

Orbital involvement in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is rare with very few published cases. We describe a case of unilateral isolated extraocular muscle enlargement in a patient with CLL. An incisional biopsy was performed from the left medial rectus muscle and histology revealed a lymphocytic infiltrate suggestive of CLL. Complete resolution of signs and symptoms was subsequently achieved with chemotherapy. We would suggest that in patients presenting with atypical clinical features, it is important to consider nonthyroid-related causes of extraocular muscle enlargement and a muscle biopsy should be considered to exclude neoplastic causes...

Chintan Malhotra, Arun Kumar Jain, Nikhil Aggarwal
A 70-year-old patient who underwent uneventful primary implantation of Auro K Pro (a Type I Boston Keratoprosthesis-based device), developed infiltrates in the deep stroma of the carrier corneal graft and exudates on the optic stem of the keratoprosthesis assembly, 6 weeks postoperatively, which subsequently progressed to endophthalmitis. Vitreous tap was positive for a panfungal polymerase chain reaction, although corneal scrapings for both Gram stain and KOH wet mount yielded negative results. Aggressive management with systemic, topical, intravitreal, and intrastromal antifungal agents resulted in an initial resolution, but residual inflammatory vitreous membranes persisted...

A 14-year-old male teen presented with unilateral episcleritis, unresponsive to topical and systemic corticosteroid therapy, without a history of ocular trauma or evidence for systemic diseases. The presence of foreign bodies in the conjunctival mucus of the hyperemic fornix has been noticed during one of the follow-up examinations. The toxicological analysis of conjunctival mucus revealed the presence of ethylene glycolmonomethyl ether and triethilene glicolebuthyl ether, used as solvents in nail polish removers and all-purpose cleaners...

We report an unusual case of granulomatous inflammation that presented adjacent to bleb 3 weeks postoperatively after combined phacoemulsification and trabeculectomy surgery with mitomycin-C due to retained microfragments of methyl cellulose sponge. The commonly used antimetabolite delivery devices are made of cellulose. Methyl cellulose sponges are friable, and they are likely to leave behind microfragments in subconjunctival space. In our case, bleb integrity was maintained, unlike the earlier reported cases which presented with bleb leak...

Sympathetic ophthalmia is an ocular inflammatory disease commonly associated with penetrating trauma. We report a case of sympathetic ophthalmia who had Dalen-Fuchs nodules on presentation and developed a frosted branch angiitis (FBA)-like picture which is not a known feature of this disease. A 25-year-old male patient was seen 8 months following penetrating trauma to the left eye. He was treated with oral steroids and immunosuppressives. Fundus fluorescein angiography confirmed the presence of perivascular retinitis; optical coherence tomography showed retinal thickening and ultrasonography showed peripapillary choroidal thickening...

Pseudo-phakic pupillary block glaucoma in postoperative period may mimic acute endophthalmitis. This article illustrates how clinical differentiation of pseudo-phakic pupillary block glaucoma from postoperative acute endophthalmitis was done as ultrasonography produced confusing results.

In this report, we present a case of Purtscher-like retinopathy in a 12-year-old male child with nephrotic syndrome. He was a known case of steroid-dependent nephrotic syndrome, frequent relapser with spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, who presented with complaints of difficulty in vision in both eyes. The fundus examination showed multiple cotton-wool spots and Purtscher fleckens centered around the optic nerve head with superficial retinal hemorrhages in both eyes. Fluorescein angiography confirmed the diagnosis of Purtscher-like retinopathy...
