Applicability of the 2001 revised diagnostic criteria in Brazilian Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease patients.

Arq Bras Oftalmol 2008 Jan-Feb;71(1):67-70

Department of Ophthalmology, UNIFESP, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Purpose: To determine the applicability of the international revised diagnostic criteria for Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease.

Methods: Retrospective study. Medical charts of 140 patients with the diagnosis of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease, from the Uveitis Sector of the Federal University of Sao Paulo (UNIFESP), were revised and classified following the revised diagnostic criteria.

Results: Of the 140 patients, 12.85% fulfilled the criteria for complete disease, 29.28% incomplete disease, 28.57% "probable" Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease and 28.27% were considered not Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease.

Conclusion: The authors consider that the international revised diagnostic criteria have good applicability and are very useful to help in the diagnosis of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease.

[Effects of analysis of posterior subtenon injection of triamcinolone: a case series].

Arq Bras Oftalmol 2006 Jul-Aug;69(4):509-11

Setor de Uvea e AIDS, Departamento de Oftalmologia, UNIFESP São Paulo, SP, Brasil.

Purpose: To evaluate the effects of posterior subtenon injection of triamcinolone acetonide in patients with intraocular inflammation.

Methods: Case series enrolling 24 patients (26 eyes) submitted to posterior subtenon injection of triamcinolone acetonide for intraocular inflammation treatment. Maleate timolol at 0.5% was prescribed for all patients for 30 days.

Results: Improvement of visual acuity was observed in 81% of the patients after a single injection of triamcinolone acetonide. Increase in the intraocular pression was not observed in the treated eyes.

Conclusion: Posterior subtenon injection of triamcinolone acetonide proved to be a safe and effective way of treating intraocular inflammations.

[Pseudotoxocariasis: a case report].

Arq Bras Oftalmol 2006 Jan-Feb;69(1):119-21. Epub 2006 Feb 10.

Instituto Brasileiro de Oftalmologia, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.

The authors describe a case where the initial diagnosis, clinical and laboratorial, was compatible with ocular toxocariasis. Therefore the follow-up added to a histopathologic examination disclosed a different diagnosis, proving the importance of the histopathologic examination, mainly in presumable diagnostics.

[Treatment of acute retinal necrosis: systematic review].

Arq Bras Oftalmol 2005 Jul-Aug;68(4):463-9. Epub 2005 Nov 22.

Departamento de Oftalmologia, Universidade Federal de São Paulo, São Paulo, SP.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify, according to an systematic review, the best treatment for acute retinal necrosis.

Methods: Following the methodologic guidance of the Cochrane Collaboration and its editorial subgroup "Eye and Vision Group", using search strategy for study identification, articles about the treatment of acute retinal necrosis were selected.

Results: 146 bibliographic references were selected, 13 studies were considered relevant. Among them 2 were considered to follow the inclusion criteria. The first study tested the possibility of using intravenous acyclovir associated with corticosteroids, protecting contralateral eye from being affected. Fifty-four patients who reported unilateral acute retinal necrosis have been studied, 31 treated and 23 not treated, the disease occurring in the contralateral eye in 12.9% of the patients of the treated group and in 69.5% of the patients in the non-treated group. The second study considered treatment with photocoagulation with argon laser to prevent retinal detachment, that was observed in 57.1% of the eyes. The second included study disclosed 19 eyes affected by acute retinal necrosis, considering that 12 of these eyes were treated with photocoagulation with argon laser to prevent retinal detachment. Among the 12 eyes, 2 developed retinal detachment (16.6%) while, in the non-treated group, 7 eyes, 4 developed retinal detachment (57.1%).

Conclusion: The author concludes that both types of proposed interventions have proven to be effective. However, once the mentioned studies are methodologically considered weak, it is necessary to perform randomized clinical trials with the purpose of establishing the most suitable treatment for acute retinal necrosis.
