Identification of retained nucleus fragment in the posterior chamber using ultrasound biomicroscopy [Case Report]

Oliveira, Cristiano; Liebmann, Jeffrey M; Dodick, Jack M; Topilow, Harvey; Cykiert, Robert; Ritch, Robert
PURPOSE: To describe the use of ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) to image retained nuclear fragments posterior to the iris plane after uncomplicated phacoemulsification with posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL) implantation in two patients. DESIGN: Interventional case report. METHODS: Two patients presented with an iris elevation after uncomplicated phacoemulsification and lens implantation. RESULTS: Visual acuity was 20/20 in the first patient and 20/30 in the second. There was no anterior chamber inflammation in either eye. UBM revealed a small, retained nuclear fragment between the iris pigment epithelium and the anterior lens capsule, causing localized anterior iris displacement in both patients. The PCIOL was within the capsular bag, and the iris root and ciliary body were normal in both patients. CONCLUSION: UBM can demonstrate retained lens fragments within the posterior chamber

Uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema syndrome after handmade, anterior chamber lens implantation [Case Report]

Khan, Y A; Pavlin, C J; Cykiert, R; Rootman, D S
Two patients developed uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema syndrome secondary to implantation of handmade anterior chamber intraocular lenses (IOLs). The IOLs were designed and made by the patients' ophthalmologists in their native Ukraine. The cases illustrate innovative and unusual solutions to the shortage of quality IOLs in the developing world and the challenging management of patients who present with complications arising from these IOLs

Congenital idiopathic corneal endotheliopathy [Case Report]

Scott DR; Pepose JS; Lee SF; Charles NC; Cykiert RC; Barraquer J; de la Cruz Z; Green WR
Two unrelated boys had a history of bilateral corneal clouding at birth following uncomplicated full-term gestations and spontaneous vaginal deliveries (without forceps). Clinical examinations disclosed bilateral corneal edema, no inflammation, and normal intraocular pressures. There was no history of similarly affected family members. The patients underwent penetrating keratoplasty at ages 4 months (patient 1) and 12 years (patient 2). Light and electron microscopic studies of the corneal buttons from both patients revealed areas of degeneration of the endothelium and separation of rounded endothelial cells. The morphologic features were strikingly similar to those in two acquired forms of corneal disorders--autoimmune endotheliopathy and 'acute endotheliitis.' Immunocytologic and in situ hybridization studies for herpes simplex virus were not consistent with either productive or latent corneal infection. Ultrastructural changes in Descemet's membrane reflect delayed or abnormal development of the postnatal nonbanded layer in patients 1 and 2, respectively. These suggest an intrauterine insult that resulted in endothelial dysfunction. The histologic and ultrastructural features of these two congenital cases are not typical of those seen in any of the recognized causes of congenital corneal clouding. We propose that these cases represent a unique congenital corneal endotheliopathy of undetermined origin
