Abstract Ectopic orbital meningioma is a rare tumor usually affecting the medial orbit. We present two cases that occurred in a 56-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man. The tumors in both patients were subtotally excised via orbitotomy surgery and were located in the superior quadrant in one of our patients and in the temporal quadrant in the other. Following histopathologic diagnosis, external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) was administered to one patient and intensity modulated radiotherapy to the o...

Dear Editor, Acute macular neuroretinopathy (AMNR) is a rare condition of unknown etiology, first described in 1975 by Bos and Deutman.[1] It is characterized by subacute visual impairment that can either be transient or permanent, generally seen in young women, unilaterally or bilaterally.[1,2] Ophthalmoscopically round or oval parafoveal, brown-reddish lesions are typical. Red-free photography, scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO), and optic coherence tomography (OCT) have been introduced for b...
PURPOSE: To evaluate the presentation patterns and results of management of retinoblastoma at a tertiary care center in Ankara, Turkey, with special emphasis on globe conservation rate in unilateral and bilateral intraocular retinoblastoma. METHODS: Patients were grouped according to the International Classification of Retinoblastoma. For intraocular retinoblastoma, group E and some group D eyes underwent primary enucleation. Secondary enucleation was performed after failure of chemoreduction, f...

: A 40-year-old man presented with a progressively growing left orbital mass producing proptosis. Orbital MRI revealed a large bilobed mass that was isointense with respect to the extraocular muscles on T1-weighted images and demonstrated heterogenous contrast enhancement. T2-weighted images revealed a markedly heterogenous internal appearance with fluid-fluid levels. The mass was completely excised in one piece. Histopathologically, the encapsulated tumor consisted mostly of spindle-shaped tumo...

Olopatadine topical ophthalmic solution is a potent antiallergic agent that has selective histamine H1-receptor antagonizing and mast cell-stabilizing activity. Olopatadine is available as a 0.1% formulation and, more recently, as a 0.2% formulation. The drug inhibits proinflammatory mast cell mediator release, specifically histamine, and the release of inflammatory lipid mediators such as leukotriene and thromboxane from human leukocytes and eosinophils. In preclinical and clinical studies, olo...

An 8-month-old healthy girl presented with a left orbital mass, which orbital magnetic resonance imaging revealed to be a well-circumscribed, mostly cystic lesion. The patient underwent orbitotomy via inferior fornicial conjunctival approach. Tumour shrinkage was accomplished by aspiration of the intralesional fluid, and the remaining debulked mass was removed by total excisional biopsy. Pathological examination revealed a cystic tumour lined mainly with keratinized stratified squamous epitheliu...

: We evaluated the efficacy and safety of topical cyclosporine-A in dry eye associated with chronic graft versus host disease (GVHD) in 8 patients. Visual acuity, fluorescein staining of cornea and conjunctiva, tear break-up time, Schirmer test results and subjective complaints were recorded. Topical cyclosporine-A might be an effective and safe treatment option in dry eye related to chronic GVHD.

Abstract We report fundus autofluorescence and spectral optical coherence tomography (OCT/SLO) findings in acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE). Different autofluorescence patterns and OCT findings were observed during the acute and resolution phase of the disease. The combined use of new non-invasive technologies may put new insight to the explanation of the histopathology and etiology of APMPPE.
