Fundus flavimaculatus e neovasculariza??o subretiniana: relato de caso
Arag?o, Ricardo Evangelista Marrocos de;Barreira, Ieda Maria Alexandre;Holanda Filha, Joana Gurgel;
Arquivos Brasileiros de Oftalmologia , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-27492005000200021
Abstract: fundus flavimaculatus is a progressive, bilateral, hereditary retinal dystrophy characterized by ill-defined, yellowish, pisciform flecks at the level of the retinal pigment epithelium. since the disease process is at level of the retinal pigment epithelium, it is not surprising that subretinal macular neovascularizations might occur. nevertheless, they have been rarely reported as complications of the disease. the following report describes a case of fundus flavimaculatus that progressed with blurred vision by a subretinal macular neovascularization.

Abstract: to describe a case of idiopathic polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy and the role of indocyanine green angiography findings in the differential diagnosis of exsudative maculopathies, particularly with age-related macular degeneration, and the extreme evolution of idiopathic polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy in one patient. a patient with vitreous hemorrhage was examined and evaluated by fluorescein and indocyanine green angiographies in the right eye and with hemorrhagic detachment of the retinal pigment epithelium in the left eye. the patient was treated by pars plana vitrectomy in the right eye which was followed by retinal detachment and vision loss. in the left eye an involution of the hemorrhagic detachment of the retinal pigment epithelium with preservation of the vision was seen. the idiopathic polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy seems to be a distinct clinical entity that can and should be differentiated from age-related macular degeneration and the fluorescein and indocyanine green angiographies should be performed to evaluate the choroidal vasculature in an attempt to establish a more definitive diagnosis. particularly in this case the entity had an extreme clinical course in the patient.

Abstract: sjogren - larsson syndrome is a rare autosomal recessively inherited neurocutaneous disorder which occurs with 100% penetrance and is classically characterized by ichthyosis, spasticity and mental handicap. the disease is caused by mutations in the aldehyde dehydrogenase gene. the ocular manifestations are highly characteristic bilateral, glistening yellow-white retinal dots from the age of 1 to 2 years onward. the number of dots increases whit age. the extent of the macular abnormality does not correlate with the severity of the ichthyosis or with the severity of the neurological abnormalities. we report the clinical characteristics and ocular manifestations associated with the sj?gren-larsson syndrome in two siblings, emphasizing the clinical importance of the ophthalmological examination of the sj?gren-larsson syndrome. bpls, a eleven year old boy and mpls, a ten year old girl from non-consanguinous parents, presenting congenital ichthyosis, spastic diplegia and mental retardation. miopia, fotofobia, subnormal visual acuity and glistening yellow-white crystalline deposits that were located in the foveal and parafoveal area were found in the ophthalmologic examination.

Amaurose bilateral por menigoencefalite criptocócica: relato de caso
Arag?o, Ricardo Evangelista Marrocos de;Muccioli, Cristina;Barrreira, Ieda Maria Alexandre;Ribeiro, Daniel Canamary Silveira;Timóteo, Cristiane Nobrega Gularte;

Abstract: cryptococcal meningitis is caused by the yeast cryptococcus neoformans. two varieties are recognized: var. gattii and var. neoformans. it is usually associated with immunosuppressive states, particularly hiv infection. cryptococcal infection of the central nervous system is uncommon in immunocompetent children and difficult to diagnose. ocular complications are common. optic disc swelling was found in 33%. the following report describes a case of meningitis caused by c. neoformans var. gattii in an 8 year-old immunocompetent child who developed optic atrophy. the patient was treated with amphotericin b associated with corticosteroids. possible therapeutic strategies aimed at reducing visual loss in cryptococcal meningitis have great importance to avoid this important morbidity.
Optic neuropathy secondary to cat scratch disease: case report
Arag?o, Ricardo Evangelista Marrocos de;Ramos, Régia Maria Gondim;Bezerra, Andreya Ferreira Rodrigues;Cavalcanti Júnior, Roberto Briand;Albuquerque, Thiago Leite;
Arquivos Brasileiros de Oftalmologia , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-27492010000600015
Abstract: optic neuropathy due to cat scratch disease is a relatively infrequent occurrence associated with macular star formation and is characterized by sudden painless loss of vision mostly unilateral. bartonella henselae is well recognized as the etiologic agent in cat scratch disease. ocular complications of the disease occur in up to 10% of patients and include neuroretinitis. ocular bartonelosis is usually self-limited with complete or near-complete recovery of vision in otherwise healthy patients. a case of a boy with neuroretinitis caused by b. henselae is reported.

Abstract: dengue fever is a well known viral infection transmitted through the bite of an infected aedes aegypti and aedes albopictus mosquito. its geographic distribution covers over 100 countries. clinical presentation is variable and depends upon the age and immunological status of the patient. it can be classified as asymptomatic illness, dengue fever, dengue hemorrhagic or dengue shock syndrome. ocular manifestations of dengue have been described, however there are few reports on neurological involvement. we hereby report two cases of bilateral optic neuritis after dengue viral infection. both of them rapidly recovered the visual acuity without treatment.
"Cherry red spot" in a patient with Tay-Sachs disease: case report
Arag?o, Ricardo Evangelista Marrocos de;Ramos, Régia Maria Gondim;Pereira, Felipe Bezerra Alves;Bezerra, Andreya Ferreira Rodrigues;Fernandes, Daniel Nogueira;
Arquivos Brasileiros de Oftalmologia , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-27492009000400019
Abstract: tay-sachs disease is an autosomal recessive disorder of sphingolipid metabolism, caused by enzime hexosaminidase a deficiency that leads to an accumulation of gm2 in neurocytes which results in progressive loss of neurological function. the accumulation of lipid in retinal ganglion cells that leads to a chalk-white appearance of the fundus called "cherry red spot" is the hallmark of tay-sachs disease. it is also seen in others neurometabolic diseases as well as in central retinal artery occlusion. this case reports a child with tay-sachs disease in a family with four previous similar deaths without diagnostic.

Abstract: von hippel-lindau (vhl) disease is an autossomical, dominant inherited tumour syndrom. these tumours may include haemangioblastoma in the retina and central nervous system (cns), renal cell carcinoma, phaeochromocytoma, islet cell tumours of the pancreas, cystadenoma in the kidney, pancreas, and epididymis. the most common symptoms include: loss of vision, raised intracranial pressure, neurological deficits, paroxysmal raised blood pressure and local pain. we report herein a 29-year-old man with visual loss and cerebellar haemangioblastoma that despite neurological manifestations the diagnosis of vhl was established after the ophthalmological examanination.
Sustained long-term improvement with clozapine in schizophrenia
Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria , 1999, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-282X1999000100004
Abstract: the present paper reports the long-term use of clozapine in a prospective sample of 46 chronic schizophrenics. in six months, 21 subjects had been excluded for a number of reasons. in four of them the reasons for exclusion were related to lack of response or adverse effects. the median daily clozapine dose was 400 mg in the remaining 25 patients. as a whole, there were remarkable improvements in core dimensions of psychopathology, global cognitive status, and level of functioning. we confirmed that clozapine is effective in a subgroup of schizophrenics with the severest forms of the disease. if tolerated after the first few months it leads to progressive gains in several domains of behavior. clozapine should be tried in every patient with schizophrenia in whom positive symptoms, disorganization, or bizarre behavior are a matter of incapacitation despite efforts to keep them under control with other drugs.
