Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. Distrofia corneal de Schnyder. Se concluye que el caso presenta una distrofia corneal estromal de tipo cristalina, de Schnyder. The purpose of this case report is to correlate clinical features of granular dystrophy using nm optical coherence tomography OCT in order to determine the depth of intrastromal corneal deposits. We report a case of a year-old man with granular dystrophy. Biomicroscopy revealed bilateral “snowflake”opacities degeneracoones different levels of the stromal layer.

OCT disclosed multiple hiperreflective dots in anterior and deeper stromal layers. The authors describe four rare cases of polychromatic posterior corneal dystrophy, not describe in nation Distrofia corneana amorfa posterior: The purpose of this paper is to warn the ophthalmologist about the possibility of facing rare cases of corneal dystrophies.

Clinical findings of a case of posterior amorphous dystrophy were correlated with refraction, topography, and ultrasound biomicroscopy. The authors degenefaciones four rare cases of polychromatic posterior corneal dystrophy, not describe in national literature.

The opacities are deep in the stroma, dotlike, polychromatic, dietrofias in size, distributed from limbus to limbus, leading no degeneracilnes in visual acuity.

It is also presented a bibliographic review of pre-Descemet’s dystrophy. This therapeutic alternative is useful for anterior stromal keratopathy in where corneal irregularities decrease the vision. Five eyes have been treated from degeneracuones patients, 3 of them were relatives. The visual and therapeutical results improved the quality of life of patients, thus postponing the need for transplant or retransplant. No complications were encountered.

To report manifestation of granular corneal dystrophy after radial keratotomy RK. A year-old man presented with white radial lines in both corneas. He had undergone uncomplicated RK in both eyes 8 years ago. Preoperative refraction had been OD: Uncorrected visual acuity was OD: Slit lamp examination revealed discrete well-demarcated whitish lesions with clear intervening stroma in the central anterior cornea consistent with granular dystrophy.

Similar opacities were present within the RK incisions. Granular dystrophy deposits may appear within RK incisions besides other previously reported locations. The authors describe two cases of posterior polychromatic corneal dystrophy, a pre-Descemet dystrophy, poorly described in national and world literatures, characterized by diffuse polychromatic points on the posteri Posterior amorphous corneal dystrophy: Clinical findings of a case of posterior amorphous dystrophy were correlated with refraction, topography, and ultras Los rasgos distintivos del SECR son: Gelatinous drop-like corneal dystrophy is a rare disorder with few cases described in the present literature.

The following report will show how difficult it is to diagnose this disease in early stages. Modern image exams, such as optical coherence tomography helps to diagnose and can be crucial to establish the best treatment. We will present the histopathological changes and clinical features in this unusual dystrophy.


O primeiro caso, sexo masculino, com 8 anos de idade, apresentava atraso do desenvolvimento psicomotor, ataxia e fraqueza muscular. Corneal Laceration Symptoms What Causes O retardo mental na distrofia muscular de Duchenne. Granular material is a collection of macroscopic particles that are visible with naked eyes. The non-equilibrium nature of the granular materials makes their rheology quite different from that of molecular systems.

Distrofias y Degeneraciones Corneales

In this minireview, we present the unique features of granular materials focusing Besides covering updated chapters on penetrating keratoplasty, and anterior and posterior lamellar procedures, this textbook also gives a thorough overview of the history of corneal transplantation and a detailed presentation of the microstructural components La causa de la entidad, en el A complete ophthalmological degneeraciones was performed including visual acuity, refraction, corneal topography, pakimetry, keratometry, biometry and in vivo confocal microscopy of the cornea.

Finally, posterior polymorphous dystrophy was diagnosed. It can also be caused by something striking the eye If the corneal laceration is deep enough it cornsales cause a full thickness laceration. Ceratoplastia endotelial lamelar profunda em distrofia de Fuchs: Full Text Available Descrever o caso de paciente portador de distrofia de Fuchs submetido a degenefaciones endotelial lamelar profunda.

To report a case of deep lamellar endothelial keratoplasty DLEK technique applied to a patient with Fuchs’ dystrophy. The surgical procedure was performed on the right eye for a case of Fuchs’ dystrophy with endothelial failure.

Through a 9 mm self-sealing scleral tunnel incision, a stromal pocket was dissected at 0. This vegeneraciones presents a review of experiments and novel theoretical concepts needed to understand the mechanisms of pattern formation in granular materials.

An effort is made to connect concepts and ideas developed corneapes granular physics with new emergent fields, especially in biology, such as cytoskeleton dynamics.

The central corneal zone is depicted on keratoscope photographs using a small target aperture and a large object distance. Information on the peripheral area is included by employing a hemispherical target with a dense circular and radial pattern.

Eficacia do metodo Meir Schneider de autocuidado em pessoas com distrofias musculares progressivas: A CK nunca ultrapassou valores acima de 8 vezes o normal. An experimental study of BIGH3 gene mutations in the patients with corneal dystrophies.

Leucocytes DNA was extracted with standard method. With two pairs of oligonucleotide primers, exon 4 and exon 12 of the BIGH3 gene were amplified using the polymerase chain reaction. Amplified DNA fragments were purified and sequenced directly.

Mutations in BIGH3 gene were detected in all the patients with corneal dystrophies. BIGH3 gene mutations were not found in normal subjects. In China, Avellino corneal dystrophy associated with the RH mutation is the most common form in the corneal dystrophies resulted by BIGH3 gene mutions.

Condon and are also the hot spots for the mutations in the BIGH3 gene in the Chinese patients with corneal dystrophies. Molecular genetic analysis may be repuired for proper diagnosis and subclassification of corneal dystrophies. Anestesia em paciente com Distrofia Muscular de Duchenne: Equine corneal stromal abscesses.

The last 30 years have seen many changes in the understanding of the pathogenesis and treatment of equine corneal stromal abscesses SAs. Stromal abscesses were previously considered an eye problem related to corneal bacterial infection, equine recurrent uveitis, corneal microtrauma and corneal Medical and surgical treatments are now directed towards elimination of fungal and bacterial infections, reduction and replacement of diseased corneal stroma, and suppression of iridocyclitis.


If the abscess and anterior uveitis do not respond satisfactorily to medical therapy, full thickness or split Full Text Available Se presentan los resultados de un estudio realizado en 12 pacientes integrantes de una familia de la raza blanca.

The results of the study performed in 12 patients from a Caucasian family are presented. The predominant refractory defect was astigmatism. A dominant autosomal hereditary pattern was obtained in the studied family. La complejidad de las distrofias hereditarias de la retina: The authors present a case of butterfly-shaped pattern dystrophy diagnosed in a male patient, with retinal pigmented epithelium atrophy and central visual acuity decrease in one of the eyes.

Distrofias y Degeneraciones Corneales : Samuel Boyd :

The evolution of this case was not benign as described in previous reports. A well-defined lesion located in the posterior pole of both eyes associated with fluorescein angiography allowed the diagnosis of this pattern dystrophy. Optical coherence tomography was performed, showing the aspects of the pathology, for the first time.

Glaucoma after corneal replacement. Glaucoma is a well-known complication after corneal transplantation surgery. Traditional corneal transplantation surgery, specifically penetrating keratoplasty, has been slowly replaced degenerxciones the advent of new corneal transplantation procedures: There has also been an emergence of keratoprosthesis implants for eyes that are high risk of failure with penetrating keratoplasty.

Consequently, there are different rates of glaucoma, pathogenesis, and potential treatment in the form of medical, laser, or surgical therapy.

A alta hipermetropia foi o erro refracional mais comum na ACL, ao passo que a hipermetropia predominou na acromatopsia e degeneracioens distrofia de cones e a miopia na mista.

A fundoscopia mostrou-se alterada na maioria dos casos de ACL, distrofia de cones e distrofia mista e normal na maioria dos acromatas. Human corneal epithelial subpopulations. Corneal epithelium is being regenerated throughout life by limbal epithelial stem cells LESCs believed to be located in histologically defined stem cell niches in corneal limbus. Unilateral corneal leukoplakia without limbal involvement.

Leukoplakia is the term given to a white patch or plaque that is distrovias mainly on the oral mucus membrane. It can occasionally be seen on the corneal surface. We report our clinical and histopathological findings in a case of unilateral corneal leukoplakia. A year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of a white patch on her right cornea that continued to expand. She first noticed the white patch when she was 20 years old, and the white patch had expanded to cover the pupillary area affecting her vision.

After plastic surgery on both eyelids for bilateral entropion to alleviate the pain caused by the eyelashes rubbing the cornea, the white corneal patch decreased in size. Because of this reduction, we performed surgery to remove the patch with microforceps under topical anesthesia. The plaque was removed easily and completely, and submitted for histopathological examination.
