1/17. Extensive retinal neovascularization as a late finding in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients with immune recovery uveitis.

    Sixteen human immunodeficiency virus (hiv)-infected patients with inactive cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis who had discontinued systemic anti-CMV therapy while receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) were prospectively observed. Fifteen patients developed immune recovery uveitis (IRU); 3 of the patients developed extensive retinal neovascularization, 1 of whom required vitrectomy for recurrent vitreous hemorrhages. These late complications indicate a need for continued ophthalmologic follow-up of hiv-infected patients who have a history of CMV retinitis, even for individuals who have not required anti-CMV therapy for >4 years.

2/17. Ischemic retinopathy and uveitis in a patient with tetralogy of fallot.

    PURPOSE: To describe ischemic retinopathy in a patient with tetralogy of fallot. DESIGN: Interventional case report. TESTING: Clinical and imaging evaluation. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Clinical, imaging, and laboratory findings in a patient with tetralogy of fallot. RESULTS: A 20-year-old female patient with tetralogy of fallot had progressive visual loss of 3 weeks duration. Bilateral examination revealed dilated, tortuous, conjunctival vessels; prominent anterior chamber reaction; iris neovascularization; posterior synechia; retinal vascular tortuosity in both eyes; and inferior exudative retinal detachment. fluorescein angiography revealed delayed retinal and choroidal filling. The working diagnosis was ischemic retinopathy with uveitis. The patient was treated for 6 months with a high-dose oral corticosteroid combined with a topical corticosteroid, a topical mydriatic, and panretinal photocoagulation. Conjunctival, vascular congestion subsided with a decrease in anterior chamber reaction. The inferior, exudative retinal detachment resolved, and vision was restored. CONCLUSIONS: Retinal ischemic syndrome combined with uveitis can develop in patients with tetralogy of fallot. Treatment can restore vision in such patients.

3/17. Peripapillary subretinal neovascularization in peripheral uveitis.

    A 29-year-old white female with peripheral uveitis developed bilateral disc edema and unilateral peripapillary subretinal neovascularization which was successfully treated with argon laser photocoagulation. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of peripapillary subretinal neovascularization complicating the course of peripheral uveitis.

4/17. sarcoidosis and peripheral neovascularization.

    Twenty-eight patients with sarcoidosis were examined. Four of the patients had a history of uveitis. Retinal periphlebitis was noted in one case, and peripheral retinal neovascularization was found in two non-sickle cell black patients. vitreous hemorrhage developed in one of the patients with neovascularization, prior to laser treatment and this patient eventually required vitreous surgery. The other patient was treated with prophylactic laser. Peripheral retinal neovascularization may be a noteworthy finding that will be found in larger numbers with attention to the retinal periphery in cases of sarcoidosis.

5/17. Formation of pseudodiscs in chronic recurrent Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome.

    We report an unusual form of chorioretinal anastomosis in a 20-year-old man with chronic recurrent Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome. Several subretinal optic disc-like lesions of subretinal fibrosis were found in the vicinity of the equator. No evidence of neovascularization or arteriovenous shunt was noted.

6/17. Unilateral proliferative sickle retinopathy: a model for photocoagulation in the proliferative retinopathies.

    We present a case report of a patient with unilateral proliferative sickle retinopathy who progressed to intractable vitreous hemorrhage, traction retinal detachment, and severe loss of vision after unsuccessful vitrectomy surgery. The patient's other eye had chronic uveitis resulting in widespread destruction of the retinal tissue, and subsequently the eye did not have any evidence of neovascularization. This observation is consistent with those seen in proliferative diabetic retinopathy where retinal damage from high myopia, trauma, or other cause typically protects that eye from the advanced stages of diabetic retinopathy. As in this case, the eye with long-standing uveitis did not have proliferative sickle retinopathy.

7/17. Peripapillary subretinal neovascularization in chronic uveitis.

    Peripapillary subretinal neovascularization progressively developed in both eyes of a 17-year-old black woman with bilateral chronic granulomatous uveitis. Despite intensive medical therapy, central vision was lost in the left eye due to disciform scarring that extended to the macula. When a similar process was discovered in the right eye, argon laser therapy was started and was successful in eliminating all areas of subretinal neovascularization in the right eye while maintaining good cental vision. Chronic uveitis is probably another cause of peripapillary subretinal neovascularization, which can be treated with photocoagulation in spite of the presence of inflammation.

8/17. Resolution of optic disk neovascularization associated with intraocular inflammation.

    Three cases of optic disk neovascularization associated with intraocular inflammation demonstrated progressive regression of the neovascularization with resolution of the inflammation, suggesting a causal relationship. These are the first reported cases, to the best of our knowledge, of regression of optic disk neovascularization in this situation.

9/17. Subretinal neovascularization in chronic uveitis.

    This paper describes two young patients who developed subretinal neovascularization (SRNV) of choroidal origin as a complication of chronic uveitis of undetermined etiology. The probable mechanism of SRNV development and the differential diagnosis of the intraocular inflammatory condition are presented.

10/17. Peripapillary subretinal neovascularization in presumed sarcoidosis.

    Peripapillary subretinal neovascularization developed in both eyes of two young women with bilateral chronic granulomatous uveitis. Despite intensive medical therapy, central vision was lost in two eyes owing to disciform scarring that extended to the macula. The neovascularization in the other two eyes was treated successfully with argon laser photocoagulation. Neither of the patients had the clinical or roentgenographic findings typical of sarcoidosis. Both, however, showed elevated serum angiotensin-converting enzyme activity, which provides indirect evidence for the diagnosis of sarcoid uveitis.
