The effect of everolimus on retinal pigment epithelium and proliferative vitreo-retinopathy

The principal cells involved in proliferative vitreo-retinopathy (PVR) are retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE). Everolimus is a drug used in renal cell carcinoma which targets and inhibits a key regulatory protein in cancer (mTOR). In this study, the authors investigated...

The Retina Illustrated

I’ve always liked googling authors of the textbooks we get sent rather than relying on the very obviously bias blurb about them presented in the book. When I got Retina Illustrated I have to admit I was pretty excited to...

Possible COVID-19 related maculopathy

COVID-19 is being investigated as a potential cause for various ocular diseases, with growing evidence of related retinal vascular changes, that vary from isolated cotton wool spots and retinal haemorrhages to retinal vascular occlusions [1.2]. COVID-related macular affection has also...

Injection of methotrexate into silicone oil-filled eyes for grade C PVR

Methotrexate (MTX) is an antineoplastic antimetabolite with immunosuppressant properties. Folate antagonism is known to contribute to the antiproliferative effects of MTX, and release of adenosine from cells and inhibition of polyamines may explain its anti-inflammatory effects. These activities contribute to...

Differential diagnosis of retinoblastoma and pseudo retinoblastoma

The authors reviewed the rate of pseudo retinoblastoma (PRB) among cases referred for suspicion of RB at a tertiary referral centre in Turkey and the distribution of PRB cases according to age. This was a retrospective study of 549 patients...

A standardised strategy for uveitis etiological diagnosis

This was a prospective, non-inferiority, multicentre randomised control trial, which aimed to assess the effectiveness of a standardised approach in the etiological diagnosis of uveitis versus an open strategy, where clinicians could perform any test. The authors developed their standardised...

Intravitreal Bevacizumab for the prevention of postoperative proliferative vitreoretinopathy in high-risk patients

This single- centre observational retrospective study was conducted to evaluate the effect of intravitreal injection of bevacizumab at the time surgery for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) repair on postoperative proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) in patients at high risk selected by laser...

Vitrectomy in retinal detachment associated with choroidal detachment

Hypotony, posterior retinal breaks, longer axial lengths and total retinal detachments (RD) are risk factors for development of RD associated with choroidal detachment (RRDCD). This study retrospectively analysed the anatomic outcomes and prognostic factors of vitrectomy in 175 patients with...

Visual snow syndrome: a review

Visual snow syndrome (VSS) is a neurological condition characterised by visual phenomena described as dots moving across the visual field. Other visual symptoms can take the form of palinopsia, entopic phenomena, photophobia and nyctalopia. Tinnitus and migraine can be commonly...

Clinical features of ocular syphilis

The study looked at 24 patients (20 males, four females) with serological evidence of syphilitic infection who presented to a tertiary ophthalmic centre. Ocular involvement was the first manifestation of syphilitic disease in 96% and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) seropositivity...

Distribution, progression, and outcomes of inflammatory chorioretinal lesions

This study investigated the distribution and progression of multifocal choroiditis (MFC) inflammatory lesions in 25 eyes of 20 patients and their correlations with clinical outcomes at 24 months. The distribution of choroiditis inflammatory lesions were evaluated semi-automatically using a dedicated...

Prostaglandin associated periorbitopathy

Prostaglandins are known to cause periorbital adverse effects. The aim of this retrospective case series was to compare the frequency of prostaglandin associated periorbitopathy (PAP) between bimatoprost, latanoprost and travoprost users. Five PAP findings were evaluated: upper lid ptosis, deepening...
