PURPOSE: To report an unusual case of an elderly patient with transient outer retinal disruption resembling bilateral multiple evanescent white dot syndrome. METHODS: Observational case report. Fundus photographs, fluorescein angiography, standard and ultra-widefield fundus autofluorescence, and cross-sectional and en face optical coherence tomography were used to characterize and describe the clinical findings. RESULTS: A 67-year-old woman presented with decreased vision and floaters in her left eye...

Eyetracking technology has had limited application in the dementia field to date, with most studies attempting to discriminate syndrome subgroups on the basis of basic oculomotor functions rather than higher-order cognitive abilities. Eyetracking-based tasks may also offer opportunities to reduce or ameliorate problems associated with standard paper-and-pencil cognitive tests such as the complexity and linguistic demands of verbal test instructions, and the problems of tiredness and attention associated with lengthy tasks that generate few data points at a slow rate...

PURPOSE: To investigate the association between multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) and Epstein-Barr (EB) virus infection. METHODS: A prospective, consecutive case series study was performed in patients with the characteristic findings of MEWDS. Patients received EB viral-specific antibody serologic tests. RESULTS: Five cases of MEWDS who had prodromal flu-like symptoms were enrolled, comprising 2 women and 3 men with a mean age of 34...

PURPOSE: To describe multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS)-related foveal granularity features on different imaging modalities. METHODS: Clinical and multi-imaging files from five patients affected by MEWDS were reviewed. Each image set included: blue fundus autofluorescence (BAF), near-infrared fundus autofluorescence (NIR-FAF), spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), fluorescein (FA), and indocyanine green (ICGA) angiography. Foveal granularity features were analyzed and described for each technique at baseline and follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) is an inflammatory disease that can be associated with choroidalneovascularisation (CNV). However, few studies in the literature have described the occurrence of MEWDS in association with CNV. This paper discusses whether CNV can trigger MEWDS in a predisposed eye. METHODS: A retrospective multicentric case series of six eyes in six patients with acute onset of MEWDS and evidence of previous CNV was conducted between January 2015 and January 2017...

Intraocular lymphoma (IOL) is a rare lymphocytic malignancy which contains two main distinct forms. Primary intraocular lymphoma (PIOL) is mainly a sub-type of primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL). Alternatively, IOL can originate from outside the central nervous system (CNS) by metastasizing to the eye. These tumors are known as secondary intraocular lymphoma (SIOL). The IOL can arise in the retina, uvea, vitreous, Bruch's membrane and optic nerve. There are predominantly of B-cell origin; however there are also rare T-cell variants...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To compare patterns of choroidal hypoperfusion in white dot syndromes (WDS) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Consecutive patients with WDS were imaged with either the Zeiss AngioPlex OCT Angiography (Carl Zeiss AG, Oberkochen, Germany) or the AngioVue OCT Angiography (Optovue, Fremont, CA) from February to November 2016. Four patients with acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE), birdshot chorioretinopathy (BCR), presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (POHS), and multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) were selected...

PURPOSE: To present a single case of bilateral multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS). METHODS: A single case with three months of follow-up using imaging studies including fundus color photography (FP), fluorescein angiography (FA), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), fundus autofluorescence (FAF), spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), en face SD-OCT and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is presented. RESULTS: The patient presented with bilateral MEWDS, ultimately with complete resolution of symptoms...

PURPOSE: To report clinical features of patients with retinal and choroidal diseases presenting with acute visual disturbance during pregnancy. METHODS: In this retrospective case series, patients who developed acute visual loss during pregnancy (including puerperium) and visited a tertiary hospital from July 2007 to June 2015, were recruited by searching electronic medical records. Patients were categorized according to the cause of visual loss. Clinical features and required diagnostic modalities were analyzed in the retinal and choroidal disease group...

Our previous study demonstrated that an integrin β subunit of Chinese shrimp (Fenneropenaeus chinensis) (FcβInt) plays an important role in white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) infection. In the present work, in order to further elucidate the potential role of FcβInt in WSSV infection, the recombinant extracellular domain of β integringene of F. Chinensis (rFcβInt-ER) was expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3), and the eukaryotic expression plasmid PcDNA3.1-FcβInt-ER (PFcβInt-ER) was also constructed. Far-western blotting was performed to determine the binding specificity of rFcβInt-ER to WSSV envelope proteins, and results showed that rFcβInt-ER was able to specifically interact with rVP31, rVP37, rVP110 and rVP187...

PURPOSE: To describe the multimodal imaging findings of transient subretinal deposits occurring in multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS). METHODS: The multimodal imaging characteristics of transient subretinal deposits occurring in MEWDS were investigated with ultra-widefield color and fundus autofluorescence, cross-sectional and en-face optical coherence tomography (OCT), en face OCT-angiography, and quantitative autofluorescence. RESULTS: A 28-year-old woman presented with photopsia and temporal visual field loss in her right eye...

OBJECTIVE: To present the case of a patient with a posterior microphthalmos-optic disc drusen-retinitis pigmentosa syndrome associated, for the first time, with white dots in the posterior pole. METHODOLOGY: The posterior microphthalmos, retinitis pigmentosa and optic disc drusen syndrome was described for the first time in literature in 1991. Later, it was associated with a pattern of foveal thickening and/or foveoschisis. Different forms of mutations on chromosomes 11 and 14 have been identified as being responsible for the appearance of this syndrome, but the inheritance pattern is unknown...

Since its introduction in the early 1990s, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has evolved in resolution and technological advances, and in recent years its initial application of assessing the morphology of a tissue has been implemented by the study of its functional blood flow, through optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). This novel technique details capillary networks by comparing the amount of light returned from static and moving targets without the need for intravenous dye administration. While this imaging modality has been used for various ocular conditions, the application OCTA to uveitis conditions remains sparse...

PURPOSE: To describe an 8-year-old girl with diagnosis of Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) presenting with glaucoma, abnormal iris vessels, diffuse choroidal hemangioma, and small white dot-shaped "microdrusen-like" alterations of the retina in the right eye. PATIENT AND METHODS: Complete ophthalmological examination was performed with slit-lamp anterior segment assessment and fundus ophthalmoscopy. Near infrared reflectance (NIR) and enhanced depth imaging (EDI) spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) were carried out...

In response to the article by Parodi et al. about choroidal neovascularization (CNV) associated with Multiple Evanescent White Dot Syndrome (MEWDS) treated with intravitreal Ranibizumab. This article highlights the efficacy of intravitreal Ranibizumab in the treatment of CNV associated with MEWDS. In our experience, CNV is mostly associated with MEWDS in cases of a wider inflammatory spectrum such as overlapping syndrome with multifocal choroiditis (MFC) or punctuate inner choroidopathy (PIC). The whole pattern of the case presented in the article is compatible with the diagnosis of PIC, meaning that this case described an overlapping between MEWDS and PIC diagnoses...
