Central retinal artery occlusion shows a distinct pattern on OCT images. In the acute phase, OCT images demonstrate the increased reflectivity and thickness of the inner retina and a corresponding decrease of reflectivity in the outer layer of the retina and retinal pigment...

Complementary Angiographic and Autofluorescence Findings in Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum

Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is a systemic disease with characteristic findings on fundus examination. The fundus findings may be difficult to detect with ophthalmoscopy. A case report is described as follows. A PXE patient had subtle retinal findings on fundoscopy that were more prominently seen using a combination of both fundus autofluorescence (FAF) imaging and fluorescein angiography. The fundus features visualized using each of...

Combination Treatment of PDT and Intravitreal Ranibizumab for CNV Secondary to Angioid Streaks – 12-Month Results

Angioid streaks also called Knapp striae are small breaks in the Bruch’s membrane and have been reported with a host of systemic diseases. Rupture of streaks or development of secondary choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM) carries a dismal visual prognosis. We report the result treatment of CNVM secondary to angioid streaks with combination treatment of photodynamic therapy (PDT) and intravitreal ranibizumab.
