Delayed resolution of retinopathy of prematurity.

J AAPOS 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora, Colorado.

Purpose: To compare the characteristics of infants whose retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) resolves in <50 weeks with those of infants whose ROP resolves in >50 weeks' postmenstrual age (PMA) in order to identify which infants are at risk for delayed resolution and to evaluate whether severe ROP developed after 50 weeks' PMA.

Methods: The medical records of infants screened for ROP from January 2008 to December 2016 at a tertiary care facility were reviewed retrospectively. Infants without follow-up prior to ROP resolution or complete retinal vascularization and those with retinal detachment were excluded. Read More

Computed tomography-based 3D modeling to provide custom 3D-printed glasses for children with craniofacial abnormalities.

J AAPOS 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco. Electronic address:

Children with craniofacial malformations frequently require spectacles but have difficulty finding an acceptable fit with current offerings of pediatric spectacle frames. We describe a novel method for creating custom 3D-printed spectacle frames based on a 3D reconstruction of a prior computed tomography scan. This method offers the ability to create better-fitting spectacles to children who are not served by "off the rack" frames. Read More

Considerations in multi-gene panel testing in pediatric ophthalmology.

J AAPOS 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

National Eye Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, 20892. Electronic address:

Multi-gene panel testing is used increasingly in ophthalmology practice as an efficient and cost-effective method for diagnosing inherited eye conditions. Panel testing is a powerful diagnostic tool, and it has the potential to reveal syndromic information in patients with seemingly isolated eye findings. This case series highlights our experience with 4 children in 3 families who were referred for evaluation of an isolated retinal degeneration and diagnosed with neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis on panel testing.

Inconsistent diagnostic criteria for convergence insufficiency.

J AAPOS 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Background: Convergence insufficiency (CI) is a common entity but seems to be an ill-defined diagnosis that incorporates many near-vision symptoms. The current literature often varies in its criteria for diagnosis. Without a clear definition and standardization of the clinical examination, there is the potential for misdiagnosis and/or the inclusion of other diagnoses as CI. Read More

Ocular Oncology Service, Wills Eye Hospital, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Electronic address:

Racemose hemangioma is a rare, benign vascular malformation. In the episclera, it appears as dilated, tortuous blood vessels that pass from the fornix over the globe surface to the limbal area, without capillary architecture, and then loop backward into the fornix. Fluorescein angiogram reveals the vascular malformation with rapid flow and confirms the episcleral vessels to be large in caliber and with a curvilinear, twisted configuration. Read More

J AAPOS 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Neurosciences, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Electronic address:

Leber hereditary optic neuropathy is a mitochondrial disorder that presents with bilateral, usually sequential, central vision loss from optic nerve damage. We report the case of an 11-year-old girl with the 14484 mutation who developed significant, unilateral visual loss secondary to retinal thinning and abnormal cone-rod responses on electroretinography, with no evidence of optic nerve damage. Patients carrying the 14484 mutation may also develop cone-rod dysfunction. Read More

Steven E Brooks

J AAPOS 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, New York, New York. Electronic address:

An experimental study was performed to quantitatively evaluate the tensile strength implications of two important steps in extraocular muscle surgery: muscle imbrication and knot configuration. The study was conducted in a controlled fashion using fresh ex vivo pig eyes with extraocular muscles attached and a precision digital force gauge. The study provides clinically translatable data to inform optimal surgical technique. Read More

Infantile sialidosis: natural history in a preterm infant with two new pathogenic mutations and new ocular findings.

J AAPOS 2018 Nov 13. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Institute of Biomedical Research in Málaga (IBIMA), Málaga, Spain; Laboratory of Metabolic Disorders and Newborn Screening Centre of Eastern Andalusia, Málaga Regional University Hospital, Málaga, Spain. Electronic address:

Sialidosis is a rare lysosomal storage disease caused by an α-N-acetyl neuraminidase-1 deficiency due to mutations of the NEU1 gene (6p21). Disease severity varies among patients and is linked to the level of residual neuraminidase activity in vivo. At least 40 disease-causing mutations in the NEU1 gene have been reported. Read More

Fibrin glue-assisted excision of a large recurrent microphthalmic cyst.

J AAPOS 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, United Kingdom.

Microphthalmic cysts are rare. Although small cysts can be left in situ to promote orbital expansion, large cysts require drainage or surgical excision. Complete surgical excision is notoriously difficult, and incomplete excision may result in cyst reformation. Read More

Accommodative esotropia and Brown syndrome in a girl with recessive geleophysic dysplasia.

J AAPOS 2018 Nov 8. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Vitreo-retinal Division, King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Department of Ophthalmology, Clinical Sciences, Skane County University Hospital, University of Lund, Lund, Sweden.

Geleophysic dysplasia and Weill-Marchesani syndrome are acromelic dysplasias characterized by short stature, brachydactyly, and joint contractures. Recessive Weill-Marchesani syndrome typically includes spherophakia, but the ocular phenotype of recessive geleophysic dysplasia is not well defined. We describe the ocular phenotype of a girl with genetically confirmed recessive geleophysic dysplasia (biallelic ADAMTSL2 mutations). Read More

J AAPOS 2018 Nov 2. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Stein Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology, University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California.

Surgery for esotropic Duane syndrome may result in overcorrections. Managing these overcorrections can be challenging. We describe the most common over-correction scenarios and recommendations for their surgical management. Read More
