Management of a Retinal Arterial Macroaneurysm

Management of a Retinal Arterial Macroaneurysm

While patients with RAMs are often asymptomatic, providers must be able to clinically differentiate them from other retinal conditions so they can manage and counsel patients appropriately. This case report reviews the anatomical features, risk factors, clinical course, pathophysiology, and treatment options for potential sequelae of a RAM.

Junctional Scotoma From Self-Inflicted Transnasal Penetrating Foreign Body

Junctional Scotoma From Self-Inflicted Transnasal Penetrating Foreign Body

The case presented here is unique in that the visual field defect was highly suggestive of optic nerve and chiasm damage. The transnasal route of injury in this case is similar to the route of pituitary tumor surgical removal (i.e. transsphenoidal). To the best of our knowledge, this may be the first published case of transnasal penetrating foreign body injury that resulted in a junctional scotoma. 

The Phenomenon of Quiescent Tomographically-Detected Macular Neovascularization

The Phenomenon of Quiescent Tomographically-Detected Macular Neovascularization

Macular neovascularization (MNV) is a pathophysiological precursor to local tissue destruction. Age-related macular degeneration is the predominant disease for MNV incidence. The spectrum of macular neovascular morphologies can be studied with optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) imaging and observed for vision-threatening activity.
