[Contribution of 820 nm optical coherence tomography in granular corneal dystrophy: case report].

Arq Bras Oftalmol 2008 Sep-Oct;71(5):722-4

Serviço de Oftalmologia, Hospital Universitário Clementino Fraga Filho, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.

The purpose of this case report is to correlate clinical features of granular dystrophy using 820 nm optical coherence tomography (OCT) in order to determine the depth of intrastromal corneal deposits. We report a case of a 38-year-old man with granular dystrophy. After complete ophthalmologic examination the patient was submitted to OCT, using the Stratus OCT III, originally proposed for studying disorders of the posterior segment. Best-corrected visual acuity was 20/50 in both eyes. Biomicroscopy revealed bilateral "snowflake"opacities in different levels of the stromal layer. OCT disclosed multiple hiperreflective dots in anterior and deeper stromal layers. It was possible to assess the morphology of the cornea and to determine the depth of the corneal deposits with serial cross-sectional OCT scans using the Stratus OCT III.

[Tear film analysis and its relation with palpebral fissure height and exophthalmos in Graves' ophthalmopathy].

Arq Bras Oftalmol 2005 Sep-Oct;68(5):615-8. Epub 2005 Nov 28.

Hospital Universitário Clementino Fraga Filho, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, RJ.

Purpose: To evaluate tear film quality by rose bengal staining and its stability by breakup time, relating with palpebral fissure height and exophthalmos in patients with Graves' ophthalmopathy.

Methods: We studied 54 eyes of 27 patients with Graves' ophthalmopathy, either in the inflammatory or in the chronic phase of the disease. The evaluation consisted of tear film qualitative analysis by rose bengal staining using the van Bijsterveld grading scale, tear film stability analysis by breakup time, measurement of palpebral fissure height and exophthalmometry. Qui square test was used to perform statistical analysis.

Results: Among 27 studied patients, 77.8% were females and 22.2% males. Mean age was 44.26 years (SD 12.67). Mean disease time was 5.85 years (SD 4.47) and mean ophthalmopathy time was 5.81 years (SD 5.37). Among 54 studied eyes, 37% had positive test by van Bijsterveld's grading scale, 33.3% tear film breakup time lower than 5 seconds, 57.4% palpebral fissure height greater than 11 mm and 55.6% exophthalmometry greater than 19 mm. When relating tear film breakup time lower than 5 seconds with palpebral fissure height greater than 11 mm we found an odds ratio of 11.2 (p=0.0008). The remaining relationships did not show statistical significance.

Conclusions: Dry eye diagnosed by rose bengal staining and tear film breakup time occurs frequently in Graves' ophthalmopathy. Palpebral fissure height correlates with tear film breakup time in Graves' ophthalmopathy. Its increase may lead to tear film instability.
