Cavernous sinus thrombosis (CST) is a rare condition that can cause death, neurologic disability, and visual loss. A pre-teen with septic CST leading to ocular hypertension and acute visual loss was treated at our institution with thrombectomy and thrombolysis of the cavernous sinuses and superior ophthalmic veins. Successful recanalization of the bilateral cavernous sinuses and superior ophthalmic veins was achieved in two separate procedures without complication. The patient showed immediate symptomatic relief...

Bilateral retinal detachments and cortical blindness are rare complications of preeclampsia and the association of the two pathologies is exceptional. We report the case of a preeclamptic patient who presented with an acute bilateral vision loss. Besides, her ocular ultrasound revealed bilateral retinal detachments and an elevated optic nerve sheath diameter. The patient underwent an urgent cesarean section. Subsequently, magnetic resonance imaging and ocular fundus examination confirmed the diagnosis.

Neglect-like symptoms (NLS) are frequently observed in CRPS. The clinical meaning of NLS, however, is largely unknown. Therefore, this study sets out to assess the importance of NLS for patient outcome and to explore their clinical correlates. We assessed NLS in a group of 53 CRPS patients and compared the results to 28 healthy volunteers. In order to define the origin of the NLS reports, we tested the subjective visual midline (SVM), performed a limb-laterality recognition test (LLT), and quantitative sensory testing (QST)...

Studies of stroke have identified local reorganization in perilesional tissue. However, because the brain is highly networked, strokes also broadly alter the brain's global network organization. Here, we assess brain network structure longitudinally in adult stroke patients using resting state fMRI. The topology and boundaries of cortical regions remain grossly unchanged across recovery. In contrast, the modularity of brain systems i.e. the degree of integration within and segregation between networks, was significantly reduced sub-acutely (n = 107), but partially recovered by 3 months (n = 85), and 1 year (n = 67)...

Acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) represents a challenging complication after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Despite the intensive preclinical research in the field of prevention and treatment of aGVHD, and the presence of a well-established clinical grading system to evaluate human aGVHD, such a valid tool is still lacking for the evaluation of murine aGVHD. Indeed, several scoring systems have been reported, but none of them has been properly evaluated and they all share some limitations: they incompletely reflect the disease, rely on severity stages that are distinguished by subjective assessment of clinical criteria and are not easy to discriminate, which could render evaluation more time consuming, and their reproducibility among different experimenters is uncertain...

REVIEW
Lauren Crawford, Sanjeev Sharma
Orbital apex metastasis from adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is rare. We present a patient with known metastatic ACC presented with a rapidly declining vision with visual acuity oculus dexter (OD) equal to counting fingers at two feet. On imaging, she was found to have a right orbital apex tumor causing compressive optic neuropathy. She received the intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). After completion of the therapy, she had regained essentially a full vision with visual acuity OD of 20/30 without corrective lenses...

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a leading cause of childhood blindness worldwide. Although laser photocoagulation re-mains the gold standard for treating threshold and prethreshold disease (type 1 ROP), the off-label use of anti‒vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) therapy to treat ROP is increasing. Benefits include acute regression of ROP, growth of retinal vasculature beyond the demarcation line, lesser degree of myopia and peripheral visual field loss, and avoidance of sedation and intubation required for laser...

Background: Kidney allograft dysfunction is common and often reversible but can lead to allograft loss if not promptly evaluated. Transplant ureteral obstruction in an inguinal hernia is a rare cause of allograft dysfunction, but early recognition may prevent allograft loss. Case Presentation: We present a case of a man with acute kidney allograft dysfunction who received a deceased donor kidney transplant 6 years earlier for end-stage kidney disease secondary to polycystic kidney disease...

SIGNIFICANCE: Clinical findings in occult branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO) can mimic those of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). Because management of these conditions substantially differs, accurate diagnosis is crucial. Our comparative analysis indicates that specific macular thickness variables reliably differentiate these conditions and that macular scanning may enhance routine glaucoma evaluation. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to identify clinical factors that reliably and efficiently identify occult BRAO masquerading as POAG...

REVIEW
Michael S Vaphiades
Two magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signs of pituitary apoplexy are the "pituitary ring sign" and "sphenoid sinus mucosal thickening". The occurrence of both these MRI signs together in patients with ischaemic pituitary apoplexy was investigated. A literature review searching the terms "pituitary ring sign" and "sphenoid sinus mucosal thickening" in the context of pituitary apoplexy from 1990 until present was performed. To be included in the study, each case had to have ischaemic pituitary apoplexy defined as acute expansion of a pituitary adenoma or, less commonly, in a non-adenomatous gland, from infarction without haemorrhage or very little haemorrhage and a T1-weighted MRI of the brain with contrast that displayed both "sphenoid sinus mucosal thickening" and a "pituitary ring sign" either on an actual study (the author's cases) or in a figure in an article from the literature that could be reviewed and clearly illustrate these two signs...
