Exudative Retinal Detachment Associated with Complicated Retrobulbar Anesthesia  [PDF]
Volkan Yaylal?, Ibrahim Toprak
Open Journal of Ophthalmology (OJOph) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojoph.2015.51002
Abstract: Retrobulbar anesthesia (block) is used for many ocular surgeries, whereas it is well known that this procedure has complications such as for retrobulbar hemorrhage, globe perforation, optic nerve injury and brain stem anesthesia. In this report, we present a unique case in the literature of isolated exudative retinal detachment (RD) secondary to iatrogenic retrobulbar hemorrhage. A 73-year-old woman underwent retrobulbar block for combined phaco-vitrectomy. Immediately after the injection, progressive proptosis was recognized. The globe was decompressed and she underwent combined phaco-vitrectomy after stabilization of the eye on the same day. At the be-ginning of the vitrectomy, a dome shaped serous RD was observed in the infero-temporal quadrant. Peripheral exploration was performed, whereas there was no retinal tear or hole. On the first day postoperatively, serous RD was disappeared. In conclusion, this report suggests that increased intraorbital pressure secondary to iatrogenic retrobulbar hemorrhage might lead exudative RD.
Ophthalmoparesis, papillitis and premacular hemorrhage in a case with endocarditis: A rare presentation of Brucellosis

Indian Journal of Ophthalmology , 2010,
Abstract: We report a rare presentation of brucellosis as bilateral optic nerve and right abducent nerve involvement, and endocarditis complicated by right premacular hemorrhage in a 28-year-old white female. The patient showed improvement with both medical and surgical therapy. Brucellosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of papillitis, gaze palsy and endocarditis complicated with premacular hemorrhage in endemic regions.
Retinal hemorrhage as a unique ophthalmic manifestation of cerebral hyper perfusion syndrome  [PDF]
Eitan Heldenberg, Arie Bass
World Journal of Cardiovascular Diseases (WJCD) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/wjcd.2013.34053
Abstract: Cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (CHPS) is a rare, complication of carotid artery revascularization. Acute retinal hemorrhage is a very rare entity previously described as a manifestation of CHPS following carotid artery stenting (CAS), but to the best of our knowledge, not yet described as a complication of carotid surgery. An Ascending Aorta to bilateral Carotid bypass was performed in a 35-year-old woman with active Takayasu arteritis and 95% symptomatic stenosis of both common carotid arteries. Severe retinal hemorrhage appeared on the second post operative day combined with high blood pressure, brain edema on CT scan and grand mal seizures. It seems that fundoscopic examination following carotid revascularization of tight can be helpful in identifying those patients who develop symptoms suggesting of CHPS.

Neovascularización retiniana en microhifema traumático
Gorro?o Echebarría,M.B.;
Archivos de la Sociedad Espa?ola de Oftalmología , 2006, DOI: 10.4321/S0365-66912006000900011
Abstract: clinical case: this is a case of retinal ischaemia with subsequent neovascularization, in a 13 year-old boy who sustained a traumatic hyphema after blunt trauma. discussion: hyphemas can occur after blunt trauma, intraocular surgery, spontaneously and in association with the use of substances that alter platelet or thrombin function (aspirin, ethanol). associated injuries are traumatic anterior uveitis, iridodialysis, optic atrophy, secondary hemorrhage and a traumatic cataract. this case illustrates the formation of retinal neovascularization in association with a microhyphema and the need for careful and prolonged ophthalmological examination in this clinical context.
Avuls?o vascular retiniana
Zeni, Leonardo Pérez;Vilela, Manuel Augusto Pereira;
Arquivos Brasileiros de Oftalmologia , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-27492006000100016
Abstract: purpose: to describe the clinical evolution of cases with avulsed retinal vessels without retinal detachment treated with laser or scleral buckle. methods: retrospective analysis of cases with avulsed retinal vessels treated between 2001-2003. laser photocoagulation or scleral buckle was used. the minimum follow-up was 6 months. average age was 53.6 years. results: of 13 patients, 8 were photoagulated with argon laser and 5 were submitted to a scleral buckle. the most common symptom was reduction in visual acuity. vitreous hemorrhage was present in 7 eyes (53.8%) at diagnosis, and was the most frequent complication after treatment (30.7%). final visual acuity was unchanged. conclusion: avulsed retinal vessels have a good prognosis using laser or buckle. late vitreous hemorrhage was the main complication.
Hemorragia peripapilar em pacientes com glaucoma e sua rela??o com o tronco vascular retiniano
Teixeira, Sérgio Henrique;Mello, Paulo Augusto de Arruda;Paranhos Júnior, Augusto;
Arquivos Brasileiros de Oftalmologia , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-27492008000400017
Abstract: purpose: to investigate the correlation between optic disc hemorrhages (odhs) and the position of the central retinal vessel trunk (rvt) in patients with glaucoma. methods: fundus photographs of 1,830 participants were reviewed. the exit position of the central retinal vessel trunk was classified as being in the superior or inferior hemisphere of the optic disc and the relative vertical position was expressed as a fraction of the disc diameter (ratio between the position of the trunk and the diameter of the disk). a group of patients from the same population, but without odhs, was randomly selected and compared with the patients with odhs. results: among the 1,830 patients, 53 hemorrhages were detected in 41 patients with glaucoma or suspected glaucoma. we found an inverse relationship between the inferior/superior position of the central rvt and the inferior/superior position of the hemorrhages (kappa= -0.34). using the trunk/disc ratio, we found that superior odhs correlated with inferior rvts (trunk/disc ratio, 0.450; sd=0.070) and inferior odhs correlated with superior rvts (trunk/disc ratio, 0.510; sd=0.054) (p=0.027). the number of patients with normal tension glaucoma was significantly higher among patients with odhs than among those without odhs (p=0.009). conclusion: our patients had a negative correlation between the position of central rvt and the location of the odhs. normal tension glaucoma was more prevalent among patients with odhs than among those without it.

Kweon, EY;Lee, DW;Ahn, M;Nork, TM;Cho, NC;
Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins including Tropical Diseases , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1678-91992009000100015
Abstract: viper venoms act mainly on blood and blood vessels. reports of ophthalmic manifestations after snakebite include ptosis and ophthalmoplegia. in the current study, we describe a case that developed bilateral retinal and subretinal hemorrhage following snakebite. bilateral retinal hemorrhage is a rare ocular complication of snake envenomation and has not been reported with fundus photographs in the literature so far.
Terson's syndrome: report of a case with favorable outcome
PINNOLA, GIULIO CESARE;CORRêA, SéRGIO MURILO;RIBEIRO, S?NIA BEATRIZ F.;LEBOREIRO-FERNANDEZ, ALFREDO;MARQUEZ, JAIME OLAVO;
Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria , 1998, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-282X1998000100024
Abstract: terson's syndrome is characterized by the presence of a subarachnoid hemorrhage accompanied by retinal and vitreous hemorrhage leading to a not very favorable prognosis. we describe a case with a good outcome, probably because of a early diagnosis and medical intervention. we emphasize the routine optician's check up as very important in the evaluation of a prognosis in the cases of a suspect intracranial hemorrhage .
