Diabetic macular edema: OCT retinal biomarkers as predictive factors of treatment response and long-term visual outcome

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the leading cause of blindness in working-aged people worldwide[1]. Diabetic macular edema (DME) occurs in nearly 12% of patients with DR and represents a frequent complication of diabetes resulting from disruption of blood-retinal barrier and accumulation of fluid in the retina, which can lead to significant central visual loss if left untreated[2].

Isolated Foveal Hypoplasia
Isolated Foveal Hypoplasia

A-60-year-old female patient without remarkable ocular and/ or systemic history referred for a routine eye examination. Best corrected visual acuties were 20/25 in both eyes. SD-OCT scan cutting through the center revealed lack of foveal pit. In OCT-A slabs, FAZ was not appreciated at superficial  and deep capillary plexus levels. She was diagnosed as isolated foveal hypoplasia.

We report the case of an uncomplicated choroidal osteoma in a 27-year-old woman, with no medical history, presented to our department with sudden onset visual loss in her right eye (RE). Opthalmological evaluation revealed a best corrected visual acuity of 4/10 and normal anterior segment in the RE. Fundus examination revealed a slightly elevated, round shaped, yellowish-orange coloured lesion.   Choroidal osteoma is a rare and benign ossifying tumor, affecting mostly Caucasian females, in early twenties. This affection is often unilateral, occurring in an apparently healthy eye. It is generally located in juxta or peri-papillary areas. Diagnosis is based on clinical examination, aided by multimodal imaging, including optical coherence tomography (OCT), OCT-angiography and ultrasonography. Choroidal neovascularisation represents its main complication.

A 55-year-old male patient was referred to our medical retina unit for bilateral vision loss occurred in the last year. Fundus examination revealed bilateral macular atrophy with foveal sparing surrounded by yellowish ‘fish tail flecks’ all over the posterior pole. SD-OCT, FAF, FA and ERG were performed. Genetic evaluation confirmed diagnosis of Stargardt Disease.
