  • Periorbital lesions in severely burned patients. [Journal Article]
  • RJRom J Ophthalmol 2019 Jan-Mar; 63(1):38-55
  • Grosu-Bularda A, Andrei MC, … Teodoreanu RN
  • CONCLUSIONS: The clinical outcome for periorbital burn injuries depends on patient characteristics, etiology, burn extension and depth, associated lesions, infectious risk and the quality of the treatment applied. Presence of ocular injuries in various severity degrees impose an adequate evaluation and specialized treatment, being associated with important morbidity. In severely burned patients, it is mandatory to apply preventive measures to avoid ocular complications. If exposure keratopathy is detected, prompt ophthalmologic treatment is essential to avoid functional impairment including loss of vision. Abbreviations: TBSA = total body surface area, MSOF = multisystem organ failure, OCS = orbital compartment syndrome, AION = anterior ischemic optic neuropathy.
  • Monoclonal gammopathy of "ocular" significance. [Case Reports]
  • AJAm J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2019; 15:100471
  • Karakus S, Gottsch JD, … Eghrari AO
  • CONCLUSIONS: Monoclonal gammopathy, although rare, should be included in the differential diagnosis of corneal opacities, as the ocular finding can be the initial manifestation of a systemic disease that can potentially be life-threatening. When corneal biopsy is not feasible due to the location of corneal pathology, aqueous sampling may be an alternative approach towards a clinical diagnosis. We propose a new terminology, "monoclonal gammopathy of ocular significance," for patients diagnosed with MGUS, however, their only significant clinical finding is ocular manifestation.
  • Corneal vortex keratopathy in childhood-onset systemic lupus erythematosus (c-SLE). [Journal Article]
  • CRClin Rheumatol 2019 Jun 12
  • Paim-Marques L, Carneiro P, … Appenzeller S
  • CONCLUSIONS: We observed a high prevalence of corneal vortex keratopathy in female c-SLE. We hypothesize that this finding may be an initial, dose-related toxicity due to antimalarial use. Follow-up studies are necessary to determine if these changes are an early predictor of retinal toxicity due to antimalarial in c-SLE.• Corneal vortex keratopathy was frequently observed in female patients with c-SLE on a chloroquine medication. • Corneal vortex keratopathy may be an early marker of chloroquine retinopathy.
