- A Case of Corneal Neovascularization Misdiagnosed as Total Limbal Stem Cell Deficiency. [Journal Article]
- CCornea 2018 May 16
- CONCLUSIONS: Clinical presentation alone is insufficient to correctly diagnose LSCD in complex cases. Additional diagnostic tests, such as IVCM, are necessary to confirm the diagnosis before any surgical intervention.
- Management of inadvertent needle penetration resulting in subretinal triamcinolone acetonide and retinal detachment. [Journal Article]
- AJAm J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2018; 10:288-289
- CONCLUSIONS: In spite of prominent subretinal TA and retinal detachment, successful repair of retinal detachment and recovery of good visual acuity is possible.
- Orbital implant exposure after Acanthamoeba panophthalmitis. [Journal Article]
- AJAm J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2018; 10:48-50
- CONCLUSIONS: and Importance: To the authors' knowledge, this is the first known case of Acanthamoeba infection causing orbital implant exposure. Persistent infection should be considered in Acanthamoeba patients who have undergone enucleation and have orbital implant exposure. Better knowledge regarding the pathogenesis and extracorneal complications of this challenging disease may improve patient care and outcomes.
- Nocardial scleritis: A case report and a suggested algorithm for disease management based on a literature review. [Journal Article]
- AJAm J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2018; 10:1-5
- CONCLUSIONS: Together with the case report described, we review data on a total of 43 eyes with nocardial scleritis. Our proposed algorithm may afford a useful understanding of this sight-threatening disease, facilitating easier and faster diagnosis and management.

Ocular manifestations of antiphospholipid syndrome typically include thromboembolic and neuro-ophthalmic complications. In this report we present a case of inflammation of the ocular coats in a patient diagnosed with antiphospholipid syndrome 16 years prior. We discuss management of the case and the possible aetiology of the rare association.

Scleritis is a severe ocular inflammatory condition affecting the sclera, the outer covering of the eye. It can be categorized as anterior with diffuse, nodular, or necrotizing subtypes and posterior with diffuse or nodular subtypes. Scleritis can be visually significant, depending on the severity and presentation and any associated systemic conditions. The presentation can be unilateral or bilateral.

We report a case of atypical posterior scleritis mimicking amelanotic choroidal melanoma. A 30-year-old healthy Filipino man, with a history of painless subacute loss of vision in his left eye over 5 months, was referred to our institute for further workup and management. On examination, visual acuity of the left eye was 20/200. Anterior segment examination yielded unremarkable results, with injected conjunctiva and quiet episcleral blood vessels, while fundus examination revealed non-pigmented nasal choroidal mass, with significant subretinal fluid resembling amelanotic choroidal melanoma. Right eye examination yielded unremarkable results. The patient was diagnosed with atypical posterior scleritis, and treated with oral steroids for 2 weeks, with no improvement. A periocular steroid was then injected to the left eye, causing dramatic reduction in choroidal mass size, and complete resolution of subretinal fluid. The visual acuity improved to 20/28.5 one month after the injection. Timely treatment was crucial for minimizing vision-threatening complications.
- Simultaneous Unilateral Presentation of Three Different Ocular Manifestations of Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis. [Journal Article]
- JOJ Ophthalmic Vis Res 2018 Apr-Jun; 13(2):203-206
- CONCLUSIONS: This case suggests that unilateral eye involvement may be a manifestation of underlying granulomatosis with polyangiitis.
- Combined Tenonplasty and Scleral Graft for Refractory Pseudomonas Scleritis Following Pterygium Removal with Mitomycin C Application. [Journal Article]
- JOJ Ophthalmic Vis Res 2018 Apr-Jun; 13(2):200-202
- CONCLUSIONS: Through restoration of blood supply to the ischemic sclera, tenonplasty is an effective adjunctive procedure in addition to conventional scleral patch graft for the treatment of refractory Pseudomonas scleritis associated with ischemia.

- Epidemiology of hypocomplementaemic urticarial vasculitis (anti-C1q vasculitis). [Journal Article]
- RRheumatology (Oxford) 2018 Apr 30
- CONCLUSIONS: Hypocomplementaemic urticarial vasculitis constitutes a rare, but not always benign condition. Renal and lung manifestations were severe in some cases, highlighting the need for careful screening and monitoring of this potentially serious condition.
