Department of Ophthalmology, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, UK.

Traditional methods of managing exudative retinal detachment secondary to Coats' disease have been associated with varying degrees of success. We describe a case of a 34 year-old male who presented with a sub-total exudative retinal detachment of the right eye that encroached upon the macula, associated with a vasoproliferative tumor secondary to Coats' disease. The patient under-went successful treatment with two intravitreal injections of bevacizumab (Avastin, Genetech Inc. Read More

Comparison of fundus autofluorescence with photopic and scotopic fine-matrix mapping in patients with retinitis pigmentosa and normal visual acuity.

Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2004 Nov;45(11):4119-25

Departments of Electrophysiology, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK.

Purpose: To compare psychophysically determined spatial variations in photopic and scotopic sensitivity across the macula in patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and normal visual acuity who manifest an abnormal high-density ring of fundus autofluorescence (AF).

Methods: Eleven patients with a clinical diagnosis of RP were examined. All had rod-cone dystrophy (International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision [ISCEV]-standard ERGs), visual acuity of 6/9 or better, and an abnormal parafoveal annulus of high density AF. Read More
