Familial Danish dementias (FDDs) are autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disorders that are associated with visual defects. In some aspects, FDD is similar to Alzheimer's disease (AD)- the amyloid deposits in FDD and AD are made of short peptides: amyloid β (Aβ) in AD and ADan in FDD. Previously, we demonstrated an interaction between the dementia peptides and α-crystallin leading to lens opacification in organ culture due to impaired chaperone activity of α-crystallin. Herein, we report the in vivo effects of ADan and Aβ on the eye...

BACKGROUND: Pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) procedures are used for the surgical treatment of macular hole retinal detachment (MHRD) associated with high myopia. Re-detachment of the retina has been reported in MHRD associated with high myopia. Our aim was to evaluate the 1-year outcomes of vitrectomy, performed using an inverted internal limiting membrane (ILM) flap technique with gas tamponade, in five cases of MHRD associated with high myopia. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of medical records of five consecutive cases of highly myopic MHRD...

The authors describe three vitrectomized eyes that each subsequently developed a full-thickness macular hole (FTMH) that then spontaneously closed and summarize the current literature reporting these rare events. Clinical history, imaging, and course of three patients were reviewed and compiled. All three cases in this series developed a FTMH less than 7 months following vitrectomy (for epiretinal membrane [ERM], n = 1) and retinal detachment (n = 2) that demonstrated spontaneous resolution within 2 months of symptom onset, without intervention...

Endoscopic vitrectomy can uniquely circumvent anterior segment opacities and is applied to a wide spectrum of retina diseases with media opacities. However, endoscopic internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling has not been described. The authors present one case of a retinal detachment caused by a macular hole in a pathological myopic eye combined with severe keratoleukoma. The 1-year outcome after 23-gauge endoscopic ILM peeling was good. This case report demonstrates that ILM peeling with a 23-gauge endoscope, which requires subtle and difficult macular manipulation, is feasible and effectively treats macular holes complicated with anterior segment opacities...

Susac syndrome is a rare occlusive vasculopathy affecting the retina, inner ear and brain. The cause is unknown, although it generally affects young women. This syndrome can be difficult to diagnose because its signs can only be revealed by detailed examination. These signs are not always concomitant, but may appear at different times. This report describes a pediatric case who was diagnosed with Susac syndrome when retinal lesions were identified in the inactive period with the help of optical coherence tomography (OCT)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Primary hyperoxalurias are rare inborn errors of metabolism resulting in increased endogenous production of oxalate that leads to excessive urinary oxalate excretion. Diagnosis of primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) is a challenging issue and depends on diverse diagnostic tools including biochemical analysis of urine, stone analysis, renal biopsy, genetic studies and in some cases liver biopsy for enzyme assay. We characterized the clinical presentation as well as renal and extrarenal phenotypes in PH1 patients...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: To describe a case of histopathologic clinical correlation of sarcoidosis-related multifocal chorioretinitis in an elderly individual. METHODS: This is a single case report and review of the pertinent literature. A 72-year-old white woman with a history of asthma was referred with bilateral asymmetric low-grade chronic panuveitis with advancing peripheral punched-out chorioretinal lesions despite systemic corticosteroid treatment. RESULTS: Coalescent chorioretinal punched-out lesions on fundus examination in the more severely affected right eye did not respond to corticosteroid treatment, and the refractory nature resulted in a suspicion of intraocular lymphoma despite a previous inconclusive diagnostic vitrectomy result...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Currently, severe retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is diagnosed by clinical evaluation and not a laboratory test. Laser is still considered standard care. However, anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents are being used and there are questions whether and/or if to use them, what dose or type of agent should be considered and what agent may be most beneficial in specific cases. Also unclear are the effects of laser or anti-VEGF on severe ROP, refractive outcomes or infant development...

Wei-Yu Lai, Tsung-Tien Wu
BACKGROUND: Retinal detachment (RD) following ocular trauma often results in guarded visual prognosis and sometimes leads to loss of the eye. With the advent of microincisional vitrectomy surgery and the development of surgical techniques, the management of ocular trauma has been transformed. CASE PRESENTATION: A 34-year-old man sustained an open globe injury from fragmented glass at work. He received primary repair and another follow-up surgery 9 days later, including vitrectomy, silicone oil tamponade, and lensectomy for RD and traumatic cataract at another medical center...

RATIONALE: A large proportion of the output of quartz infrared heat lamps is emitted as infrared radiation (IR). Retinal damage induced by IR-A and visible light on arc welders has been reported. However, case reports of retinal damage caused by quartz infrared heat lamps are rare. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of phototoxic maculopathy induced by quartz infrared heat lamps. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a female with a 1-month history of progressive blurred vision and dysmorphopsia in her right eye after improper staring at the tubes of a quartz infrared heater...

PURPOSE: The aim of this report was to demonstrate a case of Coats disease in a patient with concurrent anisometropic amblyopia. OBSERVATIONS: A 10-year-old boy was diagnosed with Coats disease during routine ophthalmic examination. Visual acuity was 20/20 OD and 20/50 OS with cycloplegic refraction of +1.25 (OD) and +3.25 (OS). Examination under anesthesia showed macular exudates in the left eye that encroached near the fovea superotemporally. Despite the poor visual acuity and macular exudates, the foveal architecture of both eyes appeared normal on spectral domain optical coherence tomography...
