Uveal melanoma is the most common intraocular tumour in adults, it is a form of cancer that affects mostly older adults, as the average age at detection of this tumour is 60 years, but it can occur in any age group with no significant gender difference. However, uveal melanoma is very rare in children compared to the adult population, accounting for 1 % of all cases. In pediatric patients, malignant uveal melanoma is more frequently manifested during puberty, leading to speculation of an association between uveal melanoma and growth hormone levels. Read More

The purpose was to demonstrate the diagnostic and therapeutic feasibility of swept source-optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) by picturing neovascular changes secondary to a rare white dot syndrome following long-term intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR). A 28-year-old Caucasian myopic female presented with visual loss in her right eye only. The clinical examination and multimodal imaging including spectral domain (SD)-OCT, blue-peak autofluorescence, fluorescein, and indocyanine green angiography (HRA Spectralis, Heidelberg Engineering; Heidelberg, Germany) as well as SS-OCTA (DRI Triton, Topcon; Tokyo, Japan) led to the diagnosis of idiopathic punctate inner choroidopathy with secondary subfoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV).

A case of peripapillary choroidal neovascular membrane (PCNM) secondary to sarcoidosis-related panuveitis successfully treated with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents and systemic immunomodulatory therapy is reported. Diagnosis and follow-up were based on fundoscopic, optical coherence tomography as well as fluorescein angiography findings. A 45-year-old female patient presented with sudden onset bilateral blurring of vision. Read More

Background: Hypotony maculopathy has been classically reported as a complication of glaucoma surgery or ocular trauma. There have been only a few reports of hypotony maculopathy following pars plana vitrectomy (PPV). Here, we report two cases of hypotony maculopathy occurring after PPV for epiretinal membrane (ERM) removal and characteristic photoreceptor folds observed on optical coherence tomography (OCT).
