Endocapsular haematoma: An unusual complication of phacoemulsification and non-penetrating deep sclerectomy.

Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2020 Jul 8. Epub 2020 Jul 8.

Servicio de Oftalmología, Hospital San Pedro, Logroño (La Rioja), España.

Case Report: A 68-year-old male with a cataract and uncontrolled primary open angle glaucoma with maximal tolerated medication underwent non-penetrating deep sclerectomy combined with phacoemulsification surgery in right eye. There were no complications during the procedure, but shortly after the surgery, he lost visual acuity after a Valsalva manoeuvre due to an endocapsular haematoma. Neodymium:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy was performed for the treatment of an unresolving endocapsular haemorrhage at the third month of the follow-up, with immediate visual improvement and optimal control of intraocular pressure.

Servicio de Oftalmología. Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre, Madrid, España.

Herpes zoster ophthalmicus usually presents with ocular manifestations, but neurological complications are much more infrequent. An 84-year-old woman with herpes zoster of the left first trigeminal branch developed herpetic keratouveitis in her left eye despite treatment with oral valaciclovir. Seven days later, a progressive and total left ophthalmoplegia appeared, requiring hospital admission and intravenous treatment with acyclovir and corticosteroids. Read More

Coexistence of idiopathic intracranial hypertension and optic disc drusen in a latin american patient: case report.

Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2020 Jul 8. Epub 2020 Jul 8.

Departamento de salud pública, Universidad de Caldas, Manizales, Colombia.

Optic nerve drusen are acellular concretions of calcium located in the parenchyma of the optic nerve head described as the most common cause of pseudo-papilloedema, which makes it difficult to differentiate from a true optical disc oedema. Despite it being rare optic nerve drusen and the papilloedema secondary to idiopathic intracranial hypertension can coexist in the same patient. We present a case of a 34-year-old woman referred to the Ophthalmology Department with visual discomfort, headaches, and pulsatile tinnitus of two months onset. Read More

The case is presented on an 80-year-old woman with IgA multiple myeloma (MM), who developed retinal changes similar to mild non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy, with micro-aneurysms and intraretinal fluid. The patient was treated with systemic chemotherapy for MM, and with bevacizumab intravitreal injections, with control of her ocular disorder for 22 months. Anti-angiogenic therapy can be useful in the control of retinopathy secondary to MM, as long as the systemic disease has been controlled. Read More

Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2020 Jul 1. Epub 2020 Jul 1.

Unidad de Neurooftalmología. Institut Clínic d'Oftalmología (ICOF). Hospital Clínic, Barcelona, España.

The knowledge on demyelinating and autoimmune optic neuropathies has experienced a revolution the last decade since the discovery of anti-aquaporin 4 antibody. Improvements in diagnostic techniques, and the finding of new targets, along with advances in neuro-immunology have led to the detection of antibodies related to demyelinating diseases. A review is presented on the classical and new concepts in optic neuritis. Read More

Universidad de Murcia, Departamento de Oftalmología, Otorrinología y Anatomía Patológica, Murcia, España; Departamento de Anatomía Patológica, Hospital General Universitario Reina Sofía, Murcia, España.

Primary conjunctival amyloidosis is a rare disease of unknown origin, secondary to the deposit of amyloid material within the conjunctiva itself, producing a tumour. In the case presented, the concurrence of allergic conjunctivitis and chronic eye scratching could be triggers of the excessive production of immunoglobulins. The deposit of insoluble immunoglobulin light chains located within the conjunctiva itself causes this conjunctival mass. Read More

Compressive optic neuropathy. Not everything that progresses is glaucoma.

Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2020 Jun 27. Epub 2020 Jun 27.

Institut Català de Retina, Departamento de Glaucoma, Barcelona, España; Universitat Internacional de Catalunya, Barcelona, España.

Three clinical cases are presented of compressive optic neuropathy secondary to meningiomas of different locations, initially diagnosed with normal tension glaucoma (NTG). All patients were middle-aged women, with optic disc excavation, as well as asymmetric, rapidly progressive defects in the visual field (VF), and deterioration of the visual acuity (VA), despite presenting with intraocular pressure (IOP) correctly controlled with topical hypotensive therapy. Due to the atypical progression of the glaucoma disease, and suspecting a compressive lesion of the optic nerve, neuroimaging tests were performed, with which the correct diagnosis was reached.

Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is a rare genetic disorder characterised by elastic tissue alterations and caused by mutations in a single gene, ABCC6, on chromosome 16p that includes manifestations that are predominantly cutaneous, ocular and cardiovascular. PXE-like lesions in association with β-thalassemia have previously been reported in the literature in patients with β-thalassaemia intermediate and major, being clinically indistinguishable from classic PXE. The case is presented of a 10-year-old boy with β-thalassaemia minor and characteristic lesions of PXE. Read More
