INTRODUCTION: Werner syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the Werner syndrome WRN gene, on chromosome 8. Those affected manifest early the features of ageing. DISCUSSION: Cataract surgery is prone to post-operative complications in those with Werner syndrome. The development of cystoid macular oedema (CMO) is likely multifactorial. Patients with WS have diabetes mellitus type 2 which can contribute to macular oedema. There is a deposition of abnormal WRN proteins in the macula which also predisposes to macular oedema...

The present research intends to propose a fully automatic algorithm for the classification of three-dimensional (3-D) optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans of patients suffering from abnormal macula from normal candidates. The method proposed does not require any denoising, segmentation, retinal alignment processes to assess the intraretinal layers, as well as abnormalities or lesion structures. To classify abnormal cases from the control group, a two-stage scheme was utilized, which consists of automatic subsystems for adaptive feature learning and diagnostic scoring...
