Department of Ophthalmology and Vision Science, University of California Davis Health, Sacramento CA, USA.

Metastases arising from primary tumors of the gastrointestinal tract are not commonly encountered in the orbit. Colorectal carcinomas are subcategorized based on morphological and genetic characteristics with these distinctions bearing therapeutic and prognostic significance. The behavior of these subcategories, including their propensity for orbital metastasis, differs, and clinicians treating these tumors must be aware of their metastatic profiles. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, University Hospital Zurich, Zurich 8091, Switzerland.

The purpose of the study was to analyze imaging findings in spectral domain en face optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) in patients with laser-induced and solar maculopathies focusing on the possible regeneration of the ellipsoid zone. In a retrospective case series of 3 patients (4 eyes) with solar maculopathy and 2 patients (3 eyes) with laser-induced maculopathy who underwent a comprehensive ocular examination, ellipsoid zone (EZ) was segmented from SD OCT data. Evaluation of EZ in en face OCT revealed a hyporeflective lesion surrounded by a hyperreflective border. Read More

Giant Squamous Cell Papilloma of the Eyelid-Diagnostic and Therapeutic Challenges.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2019 29;2019:5830493. Epub 2019 Oct 29.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Szeged, Szeged, Hungary.

Squamous cell papilloma (SCP) is generally a human papillomavirus (HPV) induced exophytic or endophytic proliferation on the surface of the skin, oral cavity, larynx, esophagus, cervix, vagina, and anal canal. The endophytic type SCP can cause differential diagnostic difficulties with keratoacanthoma, inverted follicular keratosis, and squamous cell carcinoma; however, these lesions are not associated with HPV infection. The authors present a female patient who noticed an extremely rapidly growing tumor destructing the left lower eyelid. Read More

Contralateral Posterior Chamber Phakic Intraocular Lens Implantation as Rehabilitation of Refractive Lens Exchange with a Monofocal Intraocular Lens in a Young, Nonpresbyopic, Bilateral Highly-Myopic Patient.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2019 16;2019:8791071. Epub 2019 Oct 16.

School of Medicine, Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana, Medellín, Colombia.

Background: Refractive errors are widespread in the human population; nowadays, numerous surgical options allow for efficient and safe correction them. One of the main elements to ensure success in this kind of intervention will depend on the careful patient and surgical approach selection. Excimer laser corneal surgery is considered by most for low to moderate ametropias. Read More

A Case Report Illustrating the Postoperative Course of Descemetorhexis without Endothelial Keratoplasty with Topical Netarsudil Therapy.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2019 13;2019:6139026. Epub 2019 Oct 13.

Ross Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY, USA.

Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy (FECD) is the most common indication for corneal transplantation in the United States. Recently, descemetorhexis without endothelial keratoplasty (DWEK) or Descemet's stripping only (DSO) has become an attractive alternative to corneal transplantation for these patients. DSO circumvents the challenges associated with cadaveric donor corneal transplantation by tapping into the potential of the patient's own corneal endothelium to repair defects. Read More

Nontraumatic Epithelial Ingrowth 15 Years Post Laser In Situ Keratomileusis.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2019 7;2019:5270636. Epub 2019 Oct 7.

The American University of Beirut Medical Center, Cairo Street, Beirut, Lebanon.

Epithelial ingrowth occurring many years after primary Laser in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) without a preceding traumatic event is very rare. We describe the case of a 61-year-old woman with epithelial ingrowth in her right eye 15 years after primary LASIK. She presented with right eye redness, pain, and decreased vision and denied any preceding trauma. Read More

A Case of Unilateral Coccidioidal Chorioretinitis in a Patient with HIV-Associated Meningoencephalitis.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2019 7;2019:1475628. Epub 2019 Oct 7.

Viterbi Department of Ophthalmology, Shiley Eye Institute, University of California at San Diego, San Diego, CA, USA.

Intraocular coccidioidomycosis is a rare condition, with the most commonly reported presentation being an idiopathic iritis in patients who live in or have traveled thorough endemic areas. A paucity of reports exists describing the chorioretinal manifestations of coccidioidomycosis. Here we report a case of unilateral coccidioidal chorioretinitis and meningoencephalitis in an AIDS patient that led to near complete unilateral loss of vision. Read More

Bilateral Anterior and Intermediate Uveitis with Occlusive Vasculitis as Sole Manifestation of Relapse in Multiple Sclerosis.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2019 22;2019:8239205. Epub 2019 Jul 22.

Augenklinik am Diakonissenkrankenhaus, Karlsruhe 76199, Germany.

76-year-old female patient, with past medical history of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis manifested by retrobulbar optic neuritis in both eyes with an interval of one year between the first episode in the left eye and the one in the right eye and after three decades of remission, who consulted due to bilateral blurred and foggy vision. Subsequently, several differential diagnoses where ruled out. Diagnosis of bilateral anterior and intermediate uveitis with occlusive vasculitis attributed to a new relapse episode of multiple sclerosis was made, as the association between multiple sclerosis and intermediate uveitis is known, though the causal association is still questioned.

Varicella Retinal Vasculopathy: Unilateral Cilioretinal Artery Occlusion Despite Acyclovir Therapy Caught Using Optical Coherence Tomography-Angiography (OCTA).

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2019 17;2019:5752180. Epub 2019 Jul 17.

Nepalese Army Institute of Health Sciences, Kathmandu, Nepal.

Varicella zoster is known to be associated with vaso-occlusive pathologies, vasculitis, or optic neuritis, leading to profound visual loss. We report a case where a 13-year-old boy who initially presented to us with on and off diminution of vision in his right eye since 3 days and had normal ocular and OCT angiography findings followed up in 5 days with sudden painless diminution of vision in the same eye since one day this time revealing a pale macular region with rest of the retina being normal. Repeated OCT angiography showed loss of the capillary network around the perifoveal region suggesting cilioretinal artery occlusion. Read More

Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCT-A) in a Patient with Occult Retinal Dysfunction.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2019 24;2019:4349692. Epub 2019 Jun 24.

City Hospital Triemli, Zurich, Switzerland.

Multimodal imaging techniques were performed in a patient with a newly emerged visual field defect; a missing retinal lesion on fundus examination made the diagnosis challenging but infrared imaging showed a larger area of retinal abnormality temporal to the fovea. Indocyanine green angiography (IA) showed late hypofluorescence and there was mild hyperautofluorescence which is known from acute zonal occult outer retinopathy (AZOOR). Despite normal fluorescein angiography (FA) results, a perfusion loss in the outer retinal layer was detected by OCT-A. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, Teikyo University School of Medicine, Tokyo 173-8605, Japan.

Purpose: Trichotillomania is a behavioral and mental disorder and is characterized by a recurring habit of pulling out one's hair. The differential diagnosis between trichotillomania and other hair loss conditions such as alopecia areata is difficult for ophthalmologists. We report a rare case of bilateral trichotillomania of the eyelashes that was triggered by anxiety about nocturnal enuresis. Read More

Modification of the Intrastromal Ring Position according to Postimplant Visual and Refractive Failure: Report of Two Cases.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2019 4;2019:7151849. Epub 2019 Jun 4.

Head of Research Department, Instituto de Ojos Oftalmosalud, Av. Javier Prado Este 1142, San Isidro, Lima, Peru.

Objective: The following report presents the adaptation of an existing technique of intrastromal corneal ring (ICRS) implantation enabling repositioning of the ring position postoperatively to manage a refractive failure in two patients with keratoconus.

Methods: In two cases, KeraRing and Ferrara nomograms had suggested different ring positions. To manage with the differences between the two nomograms, a longer corneal tunnel was created followed by the classic intervention to move the ring through the initial intrastromal corneal tunnel according to the topographic values.
