Objective: To present the successful outcome of regenerating agent (RGTA) treatment in a patient with severe ocular surface chemical injury. Methods: Case report Results: A 14-year-old female patient was admitted to our clinic following chemical burn in the left eye. Her best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/40; and she had total corneal and 75% conjunctival epithelial loss, corneal haze, and limbal ischemia for nine clock hours in the left eye. The patient had already received standard therapy consisting of patching, preservative-free artificial tears, topical netilmicin, topical dexamethasone, oral doxycycline, and vitamin C for two weeks...

Aim: Presumed congenital simple retinal pigment epithelium hamartoma is a rare benign lesion of the macula that mimics congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and combined hamartoma of the retina and the RPE; newer imaging modalities can help in diagnosis. We report three patients with presumed congenital simple RPE hamartoma, and describe the enhanced-depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) and fundus autofluorescence (FAF) findings. Methods: Two patients were asymptomatic; one had an intraocular foreign body in addition to the hamartoma...

Introduction: Ectopia lentis is defined as a crystalline lens displacement, either partially or completely, due to zonular abnormalities. It can be a result of trauma, hereditary ocular disease, or part of systemic diseases, like Marfan syndrome and homocystinuria. Case description: We report a case of a medically free 16-year-old girl, who was referred to our hospital complaining of poor vision and a squint in both eyes since childhood. Her history included a traffic accident when she was one-year-old. She was previously diagnosed with alternating esotropia, which was treated with glasses, alternating patching, and bilateral Botox injections...

Koushik Tripathy
Recently, Lodhi SA and colleagues have reported on a patient with choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM) associated with tubercular granuloma, who responded to intravitreal bevacizumab injections. The available literature regarding CNVM associated with intraocular tuberculosis is briefly discussed. Choroidal neovascular membrane is a possible complication of choroidal tuberculosis and the patients should be informed about this risk. However, patients usually respond well to intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents as evidenced by the case reported by us and the current case reported by Lodhi et al...

Custard apple seeds have been used as a traditional remedy for scalp infestation of lice and dandruff since many years in our part of the world. Not many people, doctors even, are aware about the ill effects of this practice. Surprisingly, there are very few reports on poisoning due to these seeds and the management is not very well streamlined. Rohit Shetty et al. highlighted the ill effects of the seeds and the need to avoid steroids in these cases as they worsen the clinical scenario. We present 2 patients who developed keratoconjunctivitis due to ocular exposure with custard apple seeds...

Purpose: Non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NA-AION) is typically a disorder of patients 50 years and older predisposed to the vascular and structural optic disc risk factors. We present an interesting case of sequential development of NA-AION in a 45-year-old patient with end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis. Methods: Observational case report.

Introduction: The cornea may become infected and perforated after epithelium-on collagen crosslinking. Case presentation: A healthy 33-year-old male who underwent corneal collagen crosslinking in both eyes developed a purulent keratitis and bilateral corneal perforations, requiring bilateral penetrating keratoplasties. He was exposed to methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by a family member with a tracheostomy and was treated with MRSA-directed antibiotics. After prolonged recovery and treatment of his infection, he had acceptable but limited uncorrected visual acuity, with excellent corrected visual acuity...

Objective: Carotid cavernous fistulae (CCFs) are abnormal communications between the cavernous sinus and the carotid arterial system. Based on the etiology, CCFs can be traumatic, spontaneous and rarely iatrogenic. We report an interesting case of new onset CCF associated with shallow choroidal detachment after trabeculectomy surgery.

Pratheeba Devi Nivean, M Nivean
Xanthogranuloma is an uncommon tumor in the ocular adnexa. It usually presents as diffuse lid swelling with or without orbital involvement. Xanthogranulomas can be associated with systemic comorbidities. They are diagnosed by their characteristic pathological finding. They are further subclassified based on immunohistochemistry. We present two cases with lid swelling which were diagnosed to be xanthogranuloma. Our cases were special because of the unique presentation as localized monomorphic lesions.

Objective: To report a case of bilateral anterior uveitis secondary to oral moxifloxacin. Methods: Case report. Results: A 54-year-old female presented bilateral anterior uveitis following a 10-day course of oral moxifloxacin. She developed a bilateral anterior uveitis associated with pigment dispersion syndrome and iris transillumination. Conclusions: Drug-induced uveitis is one of the causes of anterior uveitis. Uveitis related to fluoroquinolones is a rare entity, there are few cases reported in the literature, this is the first case reported in Latin America...

Introduction: Cases of penetrating ocular trauma due to osseous material are limited, so reported incidents are valuable in determining outcomes and proper treatment courses. Case description: We report a case of an open globe injury of the left eye with an intraocular foreign body occurring after a firework exploded in the hand of a 22-year-old man. The patient presented with light perception vision in the injured eye with a full-thickness limbal laceration and dense hyphema obscuring fundoscopy.

A 74-year-old man was examined for a mass in the left upper eyelid. It was inconspicuous in inspection. There was no visual restriction, however a feeling of friction on the superior orbit during lid movement. Through eyelid crease lid incision, a solitary lesion appeared in the preaponeurotic space that orginated from the upper tarsal plate. Excisional biopsy revealed adipose proliferation with patch form vessels. This case represents the second reported angiolipoma of the eyelid in English literature.

Md Shahid Alam, Pratheeba Devi Nivean
Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disorder affecting the neuromuscular junction. Ocular myasthenia gravis presents as ptosis with extraocular motility restriction and is prone to be misdiagnosed as third nerve palsy or congenital or aponeurotic ptosis. Juvenile ocular myasthenia gravis in very young children is difficult to diagnose and can be easily labeled as a case of congenital ptosis, the more so when the condition is bilateral. We present a case of a two-year-old child who presented with bilateral ptosis and was diagnosed as a case of simple congenital ptosis elsewhere with the advice to undergo tarsofrontalis sling surgery...

Method: A 42-year-old female patient with past history of hysterectomy presented with diminution of vision in the right eye. Fundus examination in the right eye showed a yellowish white choroidal mass with associated bullous retinal detachment superotemporal to fovea. Left eye fundus was normal.
