Vitreoretinal dysplasia masquerading as Peters' anomaly

European Journal of Ophthalmology

Vitreoretinal dysplasia is characterized by a congenital bilateral nonattachment of the retina. In some cases, anteroposition of the iris and lens can lead to corneolenticular contact and corneal opacity, masquerading as Peters' anomaly. We report 3 cases of vitreoretinal dysplasia initially diagnosed as Peters' anomaly. Case report. Case 1: In a 3-year-old boy with bilateral corneal opacities, high frequency ultrasound showed iridolenticular adherences as in Peters' anomaly, but color Doppler imaging of the posterior pole revealed a bilateral total retinal detachment. Case 2: In an 18-month-old boy with bilateral corneal opacity and dense cataract, ultrasound revealed a shallow anterior chamber and bilateral vitreous hemorrhage with retinal detachment. Case 3: In a 6-month-old girl with bilateral central corneal opacity, shallow anterior chamber, iridocorneal synechiae, and a cataract, ultrasound revealed a total retinal detachment in the right eye, and was uncertain in the left eye. Corneal transplantation was attempted in the left eye, but a retinal detachment was discovered peroperatively. There were associated central nervous system anomalies. Vitreoretinal dysplasia is a potentially evolving disease and can lead to anteri...Continue Reading

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.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
