Drug-induced Acute Angle-closure Glaucoma: A Review.

J Curr Glaucoma Pract 2019 Sep-Dec;13(3):104-109

Department of Ophthalmology, UCI Health Gavin Herbert Eye Institute, University of California, Irvine, California, USA.

Aim: Our goal is to review current literature regarding drug-induced acute angle-closure glaucoma (AACG) and provide ophthalmologists and general practitioners with a thorough understanding of inciting medications and treatment pitfalls to be avoided.

Background: Drug-induced AACG is an ophthalmological emergency that ophthalmologists and general practitioners should be familiar with, given its potentially blinding consequences. Common anatomical risk factors for AACG include a shallow anterior chamber depth, short axial length, plateau iris configuration, thick lens, anteriorly positioned lens, and rarely, intraocular tumor.

Heterochromia irides and mistaken identity of retinoblastoma.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Oct 25;12(10). Epub 2019 Oct 25.

Ophthalmology Department, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, UK.

Retinoblastoma is the most common intraocular malignancy of infancy which frequently manifests with a white pupillary reflex. We report a case of delayed presentation of a child with retinoblastoma in his left eye because parents thought the change in iris colour in this eye was due to the innocent heterochromia irides that was previously diagnosed in his elder sibling. This late presentation necessitated enucleation of the affected eye followed by chemotherapy. Read More

The Effects of Ocular Perfusion Pressure Variations on a Case of Circumscribed Choroidal Hemangioma Affected by Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2019 05;50(5):e163-e165

The authors describe the clinical and anatomical correlation between mean ocular perfusion pressure (MOPP) changes and macular exudation in a 62-year-old man affected by circumscribed choroidal hemangioma (CCH) and primary open-angle glaucoma.

Weill-Cornell Medical Center, New York, NY, 10065, USA.

Purpose: To report on two cases of treatment-refractory juxtapapillary hemagioblastomas that were managed with intra-arterial bevacizumab delivered via the ophthalmic artery.

Observations: Case 1 is a 35 year-old man with juxtapapillary hemangioblastoma who continued to have progressive tractional retinal detachment, optic nerve neovascaularization and cystoid macula edema (CME) despite heavy prior treatment with intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and steroid intravitreal injections and laser. Case 2 is a 41 year-old woman with juxtapapillary hemangioblastoma who had progressive tractional retinal detachment, CME and visually-threatening intraocular pressure elevation despite treatment with anti-VEGF injection and laser.

Glaucoma due to ciliary body cysts and pseudoplateau iris: a systematic review of the literature.

Arq Bras Oftalmol 2018 Jun;81(3):254-261

Ophthalmology Department, Hospital Nossa Senhora da Conceição, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil.

The diagnosis of angle-closure glaucoma secondary to iridociliary cysts is challenging and lacks compiled literature support. We present a rare case of bilateral angle-closure glaucoma associated with pseudoplateau iris due to multiple ciliary cysts and conducted a systematic review of the literature to find similar case reports published between November 2006 and November 2016. Only 19 case reports present treatment modalities, and most cases required more than one therapeutic approach for controlling the intraocular pressure. Read More

Pathophysiology and management of glaucoma associated with phakomatoses.

J Neurosci Res 2019 01 1;97(1):57-69. Epub 2018 Apr 1.

Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, Illinois.

The phakomatoses, encephalotrigeminal angiomatosis (ETA; Sturge-Weber Syndrome), neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1 or von Recklinghausen disease), Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease, tuberous sclerosis (TSC), oculodermal melanocytosis (ODM), and phakomatosis pigmentovascularis are a group of neurocutaneous disorders that have characteristic systemic and ocular manifestations. Through many different mechanisms, they may cause glaucomatous damage of the optic nerve and subsequent vision loss varying from mild to severe. Glaucoma commonly affects patients with ETA (43-72%), orbito-facial NF1 (23-50%), and ODM (10%). Read More

Optical coherence tomography angiography findings of an optic disc melanocytoma in a glaucoma eye.

Department of Ophthalmology, Kyorin University School of Medicine, 6-20-2 Shinkawa, Mitaka, Tokyo, 181-8611, Japan.

Purpose: To determine the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) characteristics of a case of optic disc melanocytoma (ODM) associated with glaucomatous visual field and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) defects in normal tension glaucoma.

Methods: The left eye of a 37-year-old female patient followed for a stable ODM for 10 years was investigated with OCT, OCTA, fluorescein (FA), and indocyanine green (ICGA) angiography. The ODM was unchanged, but a previously unknown inferotemporal neuroretinal rim loss and inferotemporal and superotemporal wedge shape glaucomatous RNFL thinning were seen with corresponding glaucomatous visual field defects.

Department of Ophthalmology, Laboratory Technician, Sri Sankaradeva Nethralaya, Guwahati, Assam, India.

We describe a case of spontaneous hyphema associated with anterior uveitis presents in a 69-year old female as the prominent sign of the intraocular spread of systemic diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). She had a history of diabetes and initially misdiagnosed as neovascular glaucoma. Clinical history of systemic lymphoma, characteristic findings on B-scan ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging scan, and identification of atypical lymphoid cells in aqueous sample established the diagnosis of intraocular metastasis of systemic DLBCL.
