Purpose: Optic disc pits (ODP) are rare and congenital anomalies of the optic disc, sometimes remaining asymptomatic. However, serous macular detachment or optic disc maculopathy is the most common complication, causing significant visual deterioration, without a current consensus about treatment. We describe a case of ODP maculopathy that was treated successfully with micropulse laser. Observations: A patient with ODP maculopathy remained with macular serous detachment after nine months of follow up after pars plana vitrectomy...

Autoantibodies against myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG-IgG) have been detected in inflammatory demyelinating central nervous system diseases. A 30-year-old woman had blurred vision, marked optic nerve disc swelling, serous retinal detachment at the macular on optic coherence tomography, and MOG-IgG seropositivity. The patient was thought to have optic papillitis associated with MOG-IgG. Her symptoms rapidly improved after high-dose methylprednisolone therapy. We hypothesize that serous retinal detachment was secondary, arising from optic papillitis...

The choroid plays a critical role in maintaining the portions of the eye responsible for vision. Specific alterations in the choroid have been associated with several disease states, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), central serous choroiretinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa and diabetes. In addition, choroid thickness measures have been shown as a predictive biomarker for treatment response and visual function. Where several approaches currently exist for segmenting the choroid in optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of healthy retina, very few are capable of addressing images with retinal pathology...

Monogenic autoinflammatory diseases (AIDs) are rare entities characterised by improper activation of the innate immune system. This in turn determines recurrent episodes of systemic inflammation characterised by fever, which is variously combined with a wide range of inflammatory manifestations involving the skin, joints, serous membranes, gastrointestinal tract, and central nervous system. As shown by research efforts conducted during the last decade, the eye is not exempt from the systemic inflammatory process and may be involved in almost all of the most frequent AIDs, with several distinct peculiarities...

Serous cystadenoma of the pancreas is a common cystic neoplasm typically of benign evolution that rarely communicates with the pancreatic ductal system. We present several images originating from two cases of serous cystadenoma of the pancreas which led to compression and dilatation of Wirsung's duct. These cases suggest that when the diagnosis of pancreatic microcystic lesion is detected, associated, or not associated with a central fibrous scar and a low carcinoembryonic antigen level in the aspirated fluid, the presence of dilatation of Wirsung's duct does not exclude the diagnosis of serous pancreatic cystadenoma...

Purpose: This rare case shows the presence of both angioid streaks (AS) and central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) in the same eye. Methods: A 41-year-old Caucasian male who also has a positive family history of AS was diagnosed with angioid streaks. He was followed for few years, later developed CSC in his good eye. Results: Fundus fluorescein led to the diagnosis of CSC and indocyanine green angiography ruled out the possibility of idiopathic polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (IPCV). The CSC followed a chronic course of non-resolution and finally half fluence photodynamic therapy was performed...
