Congenital Microcoria: Clinical Features and Molecular Genetics.

Genes (Basel) 2021 Apr 22;12(5). Epub 2021 Apr 22.

Laboratory of Genetics in Ophthalmology (LGO), INSERM UMR1163, Institute of Genetic Diseases, Imagine and Paris Descartes University, 75015 Paris, France.

Iris integrity is required to regulate both the amount of light reaching the retina and intraocular pressure (IOP), with elevated IOP being a major risk factor for glaucoma. Congenital microcoria (MCOR) is an extremely rare, autosomal dominant disease affecting iris development and hindering both of these functions. It is characterized by absent or underdeveloped dilator muscle fibers and immaturity of the iridocorneal angle-where the aqueous humor is drained-which play a central role in IOP regulation.

Harkness Eye Institute, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, NY 10032, USA; Department of Pathology & Cell Biology, Institute of Human Nutrition, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University, New York, NY 10032, USA. Electronic address:

Macular degeneration (MD) is characterized by the progressive deterioration of the macula and represents one of the most prevalent causes of blindness worldwide. Abnormal intracellular accumulation of lipid droplets and pericellular deposits of lipid-rich material in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) called drusen are clinical hallmarks of different forms of MD including Doyne honeycomb retinal dystrophy (DHRD) and age-related MD (AMD). However, the appropriate molecular therapeutic target underlying these disorder phenotypes remains elusive. Read More

The role of clinical examination of the optic nerve head in glaucoma today.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2021 Mar;32(2):83-91

Glaucoma Research Facility & Clinical Service, Dr Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute Of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Purpose Of Review: The study was undertaken to assess the current importance of clinical examination of the optic nerve head (ONH) in glaucoma management.

Recent Findings: ONH changes in glaucoma are easily assessed with good specificity on examination, whereas imaging has not been able to identify pallor of the neuroretinal rim (NRR), disc hemorrhages, or vascular signs of acquired cupping. Glaucomatous neuropathy in primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) has extensive databases on imaging machines, however, other glaucomas such as primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG), juvenile open angle glaucoma (JOAG), congenital, and secondary glaucomas have been reported to have a significantly different ONH morphology.

Double trouble with the disc - Hickam's dictum versus Occam's razor!

Indian J Ophthalmol 2020 Nov;68(11):2605-2607

Smt Jadhavbai Nathmal Singhvee Glaucoma Services, Sankara Nethralaya, Medical Research Foundation, Chennai, India.

Differentiating glaucomatous and non-glaucomatous optic neuropathy can be challenging even to an experienced clinician and it is even more complex to identify early ophthalmic manifestation of neurological lesions when the optic nerve is already jeopardized by advanced glaucoma. This is a case of a patient with juvenile open-angle glaucoma with advanced glaucomatous cupping who developed an intracranial tuberculoma and subsequent obstructive hydrocephalus. Subtle edema identified in an almost totally damaged nerve, coupled with a history of headache and tinnitus, was the clinching factor prompting early treatment in the form of ventriculoperitoneal shunting and antituberculous therapy.

Histologic Findings of Trabecular Meshwork and Schlemm's Canal After Microhook Ab Interno Trabeculotomy.

J Glaucoma 2021 Feb;30(2):203-205

Department of Ophthalmology, Shimane University Faculty of Medicine, Izumo.

Introduction: Trabeculotomy (LOT) and related goniotomy surgeries are classified based on excision or incision of the trabecular meshwork (TM); however, histologic evidence of the incision/excision pattern is insufficient.

Case Presentations: Two cases of glaucomatous eyes in which trabeculectomy specimens previously "incised" during LOT were assessed histologically. A 39-year-old man with juvenile open-angle glaucoma (case 1) and a 70-year-old man with exfoliation glaucoma (case 2) underwent trabeculectomy for insufficient intraocular pressure reduction or visual field progression after initial microhook ab interno trabeculotomy (μLOT).
