Purpose To evaluate the characteristics of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) syndrome in Brazilian children. Methods Clinical data were obtained from the medical records of six children with VKH disease from March 2014 to June 2018 at the Federal University of São Paulo, Brazil. Results Six patients met the diagnostic criteria for VKH. The patients, who ranged in age from 5 to 8 years, all presented with chronic disease. The most common ocular finding was abnormal fundus pigmentation in five patients followed by band keratopathy in four. Two patients had glaucoma, cataract, and subretinal neovascularization. The final visual acuity was less than 20/40 in 50% of the eyes. Conclusion Visual outcomes were favorable in half of patients depending on the long-term sequelae. VKH is rarely reported in children and it may be sight-threatening, and requires careful attention, being an important differential diagnosis.

- Association of Intraocular Cataract Lens Replacement With Circadian Rhythms, Cognitive Function, and Sleep in Older Adults. [Journal Article]
- JOJAMA Ophthalmol 2019 May 23
- CONCLUSIONS: These in-laboratory empirical findings suggest that optimizing the spectral lens transmission in patients with previous cataract may minimize the adverse age-related effects on circadian rhythms, cognition, and sleep.
- Evaluation of visual quality in pseudophakic eyes with different ocular spherical aberrations. [Journal Article]
- CECurr Eye Res 2019 May 23
- CONCLUSIONS: This comprehensive evaluation is conducive to deepening the understanding of visual and optical performance of pseudophakic eye. A modest amount of positive ocular SA seemed to be a more preferable option for enhancing visual quality after aspheric IOL implantation.
- Autosomal dominant optic atrophy and cataract "plus" phenotype including axonal neuropathy. [Journal Article]
- NGNeurol Genet 2019; 5(2):e322
- CONCLUSIONS: A syndromic form of ADOAC (ADOAC+), in which axonal neuropathy may be a major feature, is described. OPA3 mutations should be included in the differential diagnosis of complex inherited PN, even in the absence of clinically apparent optic atrophy.
- Systemic exposure to intracameral vs topical mydriatic agents: in cataract surgery. [Journal Article]
- COClin Ophthalmol 2019; 13:811-819
- CONCLUSIONS: Systemic exposure to tropicamide/phenylephrine was lower and cardiovascular (CV) effects were less frequent with ICMA. This could be of particular significance in patients at CV risk.
- Surgery-induced iris abnormalities after Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty and their impact on postoperative clinical outcomes. [Journal Article]
- COClin Ophthalmol 2019; 13:805-809
- CONCLUSIONS: Surgery-induced iris abnormalities were noted in almost half of the eyes after DMEK (46.9%) in this study. However, there was no association between visual outcomes or postoperative endothelial cell density and the iris changes.
- Iatrogenic Crystalline Lens Injury in Pediatric Eyes Following Intravitreal Injection for Retinopathy of Prematurity. [Journal Article]
- JPJ Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus 2019 May 22; 56(3):162-167
- CONCLUSIONS: The increasing occurrence of cataract in treatment-requiring ROP following intravitreal anti-VEGF injections being given by practitioners in the NICU setting under topical anesthesia that hinders optimal visualization and technique is a significant concern.

A 73-year-old male presented with one year of intractable binocular diplopia and metamorphopsia in the right eye. He was unable to maintain fusion with prismatic correction, refused cosmetically noticeable forms of occlusion, and was not an occlusive contact lens candidate due to chronic neuropathy affecting his hands. The patient underwent cataract surgery with placement of a high plus intraocular lens to induce extreme blur. The uncomplicated procedure was successful in eliminating his diplopia. Cataract extraction with a high minus refractive target is an option for treating intractable diplopia associated with dragged-fovea diplopia syndrome.

- WAGRO syndrome: a rare genetic condition associated with aniridia and additional ophthalmologic abnormalities. [Letter]

Aniridia is a congenital eye disorder with a variable degree of hypoplasia or absence of iris tissue. It is caused by loss of function of the PAX6 gene and may be an isolated ocular abnormality or part of a syndrome. WAGRO refers to a rare genetic condition leading to Wilms tumor, aniridia, genitourinary anomalies, mental retardation, and obesity and is caused by a deletion of the short arm of chromosome 11 (11p), where the PAX6 gene is located. Here, we report on an 8-year-old boy with aniridia, polar cataract, and lens subluxation along with neuropsychomotor and speech delays. Karyotype evaluation showed an interstitial deletion including region 11p13-p14, confirming the diagnosis of WAGRO syndrome. In cases of aniridia, a diagnosis of WAGRO syndrome should be considered.
