Corneal elastosis. Appearance of band-like keratopathy and spheroidal degeneration

Archives of Ophthalmology
M M RodriguesS Weinreb


Clinical and pathologic studies of six corneas from patients with band-like keratopathy and spheroid degeneration were performed. These included cases of noncalcific band keratopathy; in one case very early changes in Bowman membrane were demonstrated by light and electron microscopy. Two other corneas displayed more advanced degeneration that manifested clinically as irregular golden yellow plaques. One case of corneal spheroid degeneration was associated with lattice dystrophy of the cornea. The corneal deposits may be best characterized as a form of elastotic degeneration and were associated with intense autofluorescence.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration

HLA Genetic Variation

HLA genetic variation has been found to confer risk for a wide variety of diseases. Identifying these associations and understanding their molecular mechanisms is ongoing and holds promise for the development of therapeutics. Find the latest research on HLA genetic variation here.

Super-resolution Microscopy

Super-resolution microscopy is the term commonly given to fluorescence microscopy techniques with resolutions that are not limited by the diffraction of light. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to super-resolution microscopy.
