Abstract

Purpose: To investigate the characteristics of children with peripapillary hyperreflective ovoid mass-like structures (PHOMS) and evaluate the risk factors associated with PHOMS. Methods: This study included 132 eyes of 66 children with PHOMS and 92 eyes of 46 children without PHOMS (controls) who were assessed by disc enhanced depth image spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). Univariable and multivariable logistic analyses were performed to evaluate risk factors associated with the presence of PHOMS. Results: Among the 66 children with PHOMS, 53 patients (80.3%) had bilateral and 13 patients (19.7%) had unilateral PHOMS. The mean age of the PHOMS group was 11.7 {+/-} 2.6 years and 11.4 {+/-} 3.1 years in the control group. Mean spherical equivalent (SE) by cycloplegic refraction was -3.13 {+/-} 1.87 diopters (D) in the PHOMS group and -0.95 {+/-} 2.65 D in the control group. Mean astigmatism was 0.67 {+/-} 0.89 D and 0.88 {+/-} 1.02 D in the PHOMS group and the control group, respectively. Mean disc size was 1735 {+/-} 153 in the PHOMS group and 1741 {+/-} 190 in the control group. All eyes in PHOMS group had myopia of -0.50 D or less, except for an eye with +1.00 D. According to the univariable (odds ratio [OR...Continue Reading
