Retin Cases Brief Rep 2020 Nov 4. Epub 2020 Nov 4.

The work for this study was performed at the Brazilian Institute of Ophthalmology, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Purpose: To describe four eyes of three patients with presumed acute fovealitis to expand the clinical variants of this recently described disorder.

Method: The patients underwent a comprehensive ophthalmic examination, including multimodal imaging and electrophysiological tests.

Results: Three female patients aged from 18 to 24 years presented sudden central visual disturbances in one or both eyes. The visual acuity ranged from 20/25 to 20/70 in the affected eyes. All of them showed a subtle yellowish lesion in the foveola. Fundus autofluorescence and fluorescein angiography were unremarkable. Optical coherence tomography disclosed focal disarrangement of the outer retinal layers restricted to the fovea and hyperreflective lesions above the external limiting membrane. Multifocal electroretinography responses were attenuated. The electrooculogram response was normal. All patients recovered normal visual acuity and the outer retinal layers.

Conclusion: Attenuated multifocal electroretinography foveal response and normal electrooculogram are newly described clinical findings in patients with acute fovealitis.

Optical Coherence Tomography Findings of the Acute Exudative Polymorphous Vitelliform Maculopathy.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging 2010 Mar 9:1-2. Epub 2010 Mar 9.

The optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings of a 26-year-old HIV-positive male with acute exudative polymorphous vitelliform maculopathy were described. His with best-corrected visual acuity at the presentation of the disease was 20/25 in the right eye and 20/30 in the left eye. Fundus examination showed bilateral yellowish subretinal lesions arranged in a honeycombed pattern throughout the posterior pole in both eyes. OCT scans on the topography of these lesions showed well-defined hyporeflective spaces that occasionally merged, limited superiorly by the retinal pigment epithelium and inferiorly by a hypereflective tissue that could correspond to Bruch's membrane. Sub-sensory fluid was found in both maculas.

[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.
