UBM/slit-lamp-photo imaging of pseudoexfoliation deposits in the iridocorneal angle: imaging clues to the genesis of ocular hypertension

This photo essay is aimed at showing slit-lamp photographic views and its ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) corollaries of angle deposits in pseudoexfoliation syndrome cases and contributes visual arguments to the hypotheses and explanations of the genesis of ocular hypertension.

Novel infectious agents causing uveitis

In any patient with uveitis, an infectious cause should be ruled out first. The differential diagnosis includes multiple well-known diseases including herpes, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, tuberculosis, bartonellosis, Lyme disease, and others. However, clinician should be aware of emerging infectious agents as potential causes of systemic illness and also intraocular inflammation. Air ...

Reversed papilledema in an MPS VI patient with galsulfase (Naglazyme®) therapy

MPS VI (mucopolysaccharidosis VI, known as Maroteaux–Lamy syndrome) is a multi-systemic inherited disease, resulting from a deficiency of N-acetylgalactosamine-4-sulfatase, causing accumulation of the glycosaminoglycan (GAG) dermatan sulfate in all tissues. It is one of almost 50 lysosomal storage disorders. Ocular pathology is common in patients with MPS VI, with complications ...

Eye bank issues: II. Preservation techniques: warm versus cold storage

Most of the tissue used for penetrating keratoplasty is issued through eye banks that store the corneoscleral button either in hypothermic storage at 2–6°C or in organ culture at 31–37°C. These two preservation techniques differ in technical aspects, tissue evaluation possibilities, storage time and microbiological safety. Hypothermic storage is simple and requires little expensive ...

Slit-lamp-adapted optical coherence tomography of pupillary block after Artisan lens implantation for aphakia

We present a report on a patient with acute glaucoma. Slit-lamp-adapted optical coherence tomography (SL-OCT) confirmed a pupillary block due to a claw lens. After laser iridectomy the situation stabilized. Thus, SL-OCT allows non-invasive, high-resolution imaging in acute angle-closure glaucoma and may be helpful with the differential diagnosis of pupillary block glaucoma and the ...
