Quizzical optical coherence tomographyWe often question our diagnoses, but how often does your diagnosis question you? A patient was referred for surgical management of an epiretinal membrane. During the encounter, she asked many intelligent questions. Amazingly, the optical coherence tomography of her macula seemed to reflect her quizzical nature and was found to have a question (mark) of its own! (Fig. 1)
Eye love youValentine’s Day is a time to say “I love you”; however, the term “eye love you” is rarely, if ever, used. In this article, we present rare cases of ocular pathology that have adopted a heart-shaped appearance. Cupid’s cornea (Fig. 1A) demonstrates a heart-shaped endothelial fungal plaque associated with metallic foreign body. Aphrodite’s atrophy (Fig. 1B) represents a fundus autofluorescence image of geographic atrophy that demonstrated a heart-shaped hypoautofluorescence. Finally, lover’s laser (Fig.
Spontaneous resolution of optic disc pit maculopathy after posterior vitreous detachmentWe report the case of a 57-year-old male with optic pit maculopathy that spontaneously resolved after posterior vitreous detachment (PVD). Progressive improvements in visual acuity, clinical examination, and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) occurred over 3 months. The pathophysiology of optic pit maculopathy has yet to be completely elucidated. This case report lends additional support to the theory that the vitreous and its attachments at the optic nerve head play a critical role in the development of optic disc pit (OPD) maculopathy (ODP-M), and that the PVD may play a critical role in its treatment.
