Purpose: To describe optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography (OCTA) in a case of Purtscher retinopathy. Methods: A 16-year-old male underwent ophthalmological examination including color fundus photography, spectral domain OCT, OCTA, and microperimetry. Examination was performed 10 days, 1 month, and 6 months after the trauma. Diagnosis was based on the characteristic clinical presentation. Patients: A single patient case. Results: Only the right eye was affected, and all examinations of the left eye were normal...

PURPOSE: To report a case of Purtscher retinopathy imaged with optical coherence tomography angiography. METHODS: Case-report. Left eye fundoscopic examination in a 21-year old male after a road traffic accident with chest compression revealed multiple peri-papillary cotton-wool spots and intra- and pre-retinal hemorrhages. A diagnosis of Purtscher retinopathy was assumed. RESULTS: In both the superficial and deep retinal plexuses, acute stage optical coherence tomography angiography identified multiple irregular areas of capillary non-perfusion that extended beyond the clinically visible peri-papillary cotton-wool spots...

We report a case of an 18-year-old woman with systemic antibiotic anaphylaxis who presented anasarca and bilateral visual loss two weeks after the intravenous use of pazufloxacin. Ancillary fundus tests revealed bilateral cotton-wool spots, Purtscher flecken, edema, and retinal arteriolar occlusion around the optic disc. After pulse corticosteroid, administration of anti-anaphylactic agent, and general support therapy for one month, the patient showed a favorable change, with the symptoms lessened or free systemically, except the continuous aggravation of fundus ischemic change...

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...

Excessive salt intake is known to increase blood pressure and cardiovascular risk. Nevertheless, salt intake exceeds the recommendations in most countries. To face this problem, it is important to identify high consumers as well as the main contributors of salt intake. Overall, data of 2018 adults between 18 and 64 years were analysed to determine the main sources, socio-demographic and anthropometric correlates of salt intake. Dietary intake was assessed from 24-h-recalls, information on socio-demographic characteristics was obtained using a questionnaire and anthropometric data were measured...

A 25-year-old woman presented with acute bilateral blurred vision and history of headache, dizziness, and syncope for three days. Her visual acuity was 20/60 in both eyes. Fundoscopy revealed multiple bilateral peripapillary yellow-white patches like cotton wool spots, intraretinal hemorrhages and macular edema. The patient was diagnosed with Purtscher-like retinopathy based on the retinal findings and lack of trauma history. She was urgently admitted to the nephrology clinic due to thrombotic microangiopathy findings (hemoglobinemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute renal failure)...

The authors report a new spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) appearance observed in two patients with Purtscher-like retinopathy. In this prospective case series of three eyes of two patients with Purtscher-like retinopathy, the patients were assessed with biomicroscopy, fluorescein angiography (FA), and SD-OCT. The last examinations of the patients were performed at 3 months and 12 months, respectively. Both patients presented with decreased visual acuity. Fundus examination revealed a whitish-appearing parafoveal retina and scattered cotton-wool spots in the posterior retina...

PURPOSE: To describe paracentral acute middle maculopathy associated with Purtscher retinopathy, particularly in Purtscher flecken lesions as a retinal complication in a case secondary to fractures of long bones. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 16-year-old boy with bilateral paracentral scotomata presented with bilateral paracentral acute middle maculopathy as part of Purtscher retinopathy in both eyes as consequence of tibia and fibula fractures...

Purpose: To report the findings in five patients of Purtscher-like retinopathy that developed after cerebro- or cardiovascular surgeries. Observations: Three women and two men with a mean age of 56.6 years were studied. They had had cerebro- or cardiovascular disease that was treated by major vascular surgery. Postoperatively, all of the patients developed multiple patches of retinal whitening in the area corresponding to the radial peripapillary capillaries in the posterior pole of the eye uni- or bilaterally...

Purpose: To report the case of a 52-year-old man with Purtscher's retinopathy as the presenting manifestation of immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Observations: Treatment with corticosteroids led to the resolution of hematologic findings within 1 week, and normal visual acuity was achieved after 2 months with no additional treatment. Conclusions and importance: This is the first reported association between Purtscher's retinopathy and ITP...

REVIEW
Rosanna Dammacco
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multisystem autoimmune disease of undefined etiology and with remarkably heterogeneous clinical features. Virtually any organ system can be affected, including the eye. SLE-related eye involvement can be diagnosed in approximately one-third of the patients and is usually indicative of disease activity. An early diagnosis and the adoption of suitable therapeutic measures are necessary to prevent sight-threatening consequences, especially in patients with juvenile SLE. Periocular lesions, such as eyelid involvement and orbital inflammation, are relatively rare and, in case of orbital masses, may require a biopsy control...

Leslie Jonathan Pek Seng Ang, Benjamin Chong Ming Chang
Purtscher-like retinopathy is an uncommon condition with features similar to Purtscher retinopathy but have non-traumatic causes. Several pathogenic mechanisms have been put forth with differing views on treatment options. We describe for the first time, a case of Purtscher-like retinopathy which developed following a myocardial infarct and a transient ischemic attack. We present a review of the literature on this condition, describing the various clinical presentations, investigation findings, treatment options and prognosis...

CASE REPORT: The case is reported of a 61 year-old woman with Purtscher-like retinopathy associated with acute renal failure. Ophthalmic examination, fluorescein-angiography, and optical coherence tomography were consistent with Purtscher-like retinopathy. Ophthalmic symptoms and signs preceded renal failure. Pancreatitis and other systemic diseases were ruled out. The patient developed a neovascular glaucoma. DISCUSSION: Purtscher-like retinopathy rarely precedes the associated systemic illness...

CASE REPORT: An 11 year-old girl with progressive muscle weakness due to dermatomyositis and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis in which multiple cotton exudates, venous tortuosity and flame haemorrhages are detected in the funduscopic examination, leading to the diagnosis of Purtscher-like retinopathy. DISCUSSION: Purstcher's retinopathy is a microvascular disorder with clinical signs of probable thrombotic origin. Its treatment is controversial, with systemic corticosteroids being the most widespread choice...

PURPOSE: To present a case of a patient with contralateral vision loss as a result of Purtscher-like retinopathy after an endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy and treatment with intravitreal tissue plasminogen activator injection. METHODS AND RESULTS: A 51-year-old woman who underwent a left endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy was referred with a complaint of decreased vision 1 day after surgery in her right eye. At the initial examination, the visual acuity of her right eye was hand motion...

PURPOSE: To report the fundus manifestations and spectral-domain optical coherence tomographic (SD-OCT) features of dengue fever presenting as Purtscher-like retinopathy. METHODS: Retrospective review of two cases of dengue fever. RESULTS: Color fundus photograph revealed the presence of cotton-wool spots in a Purtscher-like configuration in the posterior pole of all study eyes. SD-OCT demonstrated increased reflectivity signal in the inner retinal layers, and after a variable follow-up period, there was complete disappearance of cotton-wool spots and persistence of the hyperreflectivity signal...
