Mohammad Hossein Jabbarpoor Bonyadi, Kiana Hassanpour, Masoud Soheilian
PURPOSE: To present a recurrent case of conforming focal choroidal excavation (FCE) following multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) in a 25-year-old woman. METHODS: Following spontaneous MEWDS sings resolution our patient noted a recurrent decrease in vision. Repeated OCT revealed elevation and mild disruption of RPE layer at fovea without previous angiographic MEWDS signs. At this time, short-term systemic steroid therapy was started and visual acuity became normal...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the morphological findings of outer retinal tubulations (ORTs) shown on multimodal imaging modalities in patients with choroidal osteoma. METHODS: Nineteen eyes of 17 patients with choroidal osteoma underwent full clinical and imaging assessments. Color fundus photography, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT), and en face OCT were used to identify and detect the characteristics of ORT structures, including the shape, configuration, location, and distribution in the fundus...

Focal choroidal excavation is a choroidal pit that can be detected by optical coherence tomography. Central serous chorioretinopathy, choroidal neovascularization and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy are pathologies associated with focal choroidal excavation. In this article, we present the follow-up and treatment outcomes of three eyes of two patients with focal choroidal excavation.

PURPOSE: To report an association between a Stage 4 full-thickness macular hole and focal choroidal excavation. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 46-year-old male patient with high myopia was referred for macular hole surgery and found to have an associated focal choroidal excavation. The patient underwent uneventful combined procedure with closure of macular hole. CONCLUSION: Successful macular hole surgery can be achieved even in the presence of focal choroidal excavation...

The authors report the use of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) (DRI OCT Triton; Topcon, Tokyo, Japan) to localize, characterize, and confirm the presence of a choroidal neovascular membrane in a patient of focal choroidal excavation (FCE) with recent-onset metamorphopsia and visual blurring. En face OCTA images just above the level of the retinal pigment epithelium-Bruch's membrane complex typically showed the presence of a glomerulus-like neovascular network with an adjacent dark area suggestive of a Type 2 choroidal neovascularization (CNV)...

PURPOSE: To describe a peculiar choroidal entity using multimodality imaging and to further understand the relationship between focal choroidal excavation and central serous chorioretinopathy. CASE REPORT: A peculiar entity was detected in both eyes of a 20-year-old male patient who was followed for more than 4 years; one perifoveal focal choroidal excavation and two extrafoveal focal choroidal excavations were noted in each eye. The bilateral perifoveal focal choroidal excavations exhibited progressive development with repeated interconversion between the nonconforming and conforming types...

Purpose. To investigate the prevalence and characteristics of focal choroidal excavation (FCE) concurrent with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) using multimodal imaging. Methods. This was a retrospective single-institution study. Clinical features and multimodal imaging findings were analyzed in eyes with CSC and FCEs, using imaging methods including optical coherence tomography (OCT), OCT angiography (OCTA), fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), fundus autofluorescence (FAF), and multispectral imaging...

PURPOSE: To report the clinical and genetic findings of 9 Japanese patients with autosomal recessive bestrophinopathy (ARB). DESIGN: Retrospective, multicenter observational case series. METHODS: Nine ARB patients from 7 unrelated Japanese families that were examined in 3 institutions in Japan were studied. A series of ophthalmic examinations including fundus photography, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography, fundus autofluorescence, electrooculography (EOG), electroretinography, and the results of genetic analysis were reviewed...

PURPOSE: To describe the clinical features and to analyze BEST1 mutations in patients with Best vitelliform macular dystrophy (BVMD). METHODS: Thirteen individuals affected by BVMD from 6 unrelated Chinese families were studied. Complete ophthalmological examinations were performed, and the BEST1 gene was screened in all participants and 100 controls. Follow-ups were arranged within 12 months. RESULTS: All 6 probands showed typical fundus appearances of BVMD...

PURPOSE: To report a case of focal choroidal excavation and choroidal neovascularization in the setting of pachychoroid disease. METHODS: Multimodal imaging, including fundus photography, fundus autofluorescence, enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography, indocyanine green angiography, and en face structural and angiographic optical coherence tomography. RESULTS: The authors describe a 39-year-old female with moderately high myopia presenting with focal choroidal excavation and associated choroidal neovascularization...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the clinical findings and its complications in 2 patients with focal choroidal excavation (FCE). METHODS: A retrospective case-series including 4 eyes of 2 patients with FCE that underwent a comprehensive ophthalmological examination including slit-lamp examination, colour fundus photography, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), fluorescein angiography (FA), and indocyanine green angiography. RESULTS: In the 2 patients, both the anterior and posterior segment evaluations were mostly normal despite the of presence yellowish spots in the macular area of the right eye of patient 1, and of a small yellowish elevated lesion with serous macular detachment in the macular area of the left eye in patient 2...

PURPOSE: To describe the prevalence and clinical characteristics of focal choroidal excavation (FCE) in patients with exudative maculopathy due to age-related macular degeneration with choroidal neovascularisation (AMD-CNV), polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) and central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). METHODS: Three hundred and forty-three patients (343 presenting eyes and 255 fellow unaffected eyes) from consecutive patients presenting with untreated AMD-CNV, PCV or CSC are prospectively recruited...

OBJECTIVE: To describe a particular observation of posterior scleral bowing associated with choroidal nevus on enhanced-depth imaging (EDI) optical coherence tomography (OCT). DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Retrospective observational case series at a referral center involving 17 eyes of 17 patients.

Combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) is a benign tumor seen mostly in children. Enhanced-depth imaging optical coherence tomography (OCT) of these tumors often shows an epiretinal membrane, tangential traction, disorganization of the retinal layers, and underlying uniform choroidal thinning. We describe the evolution over 9 years of focal choroidal excavation, a novel finding on OCT characterized as a "microstaphyloma," in a girl with combined hamartoma of the retina and RPE...

Focal choroidal excavation (FCE) was first reported as a choroidal posteriorly excavated zone without any scleral change. Choroidal excavation also divided into conforming and nonconforming type. Numerous reports demonstrated association between FCE and other disease such as choroidal neovascularization and central serous choroidoretinopathy. Here, we report a rare case of FCE in a patient with Best disease. The patient was diagnosed by spectoral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). To the best of our knowledge, our patient is the second report of choroidal excavation in Best vitelliform macular dystrophy...
