Abstract: the pattern electroretinogram is an electrophysiological test that assesses the function of inner retinal layers, particularly the ganglion cells layer of retina, using a reversing checkerboard or grating pattern that produces no change in average luminance over time. the normal pattern electroretinogram is composed of a proeminent positive component (p50) and a large later negative component (n95). since structural damage that compromises the retinal ganglion cell layer can lead to pattern electroretinogram changes, particularly in the n95 amplitude, the test can be useful in the treatment of a number of anterior visual pathway diseases. in this article, we review the methods for recording pattern electroretinogram and its usefulness in the diagnosis and management of diseases including inflammatory, hereditary, ischemic and compressive lesions of the anterior visual pathway.

Abstract: to report a case of an optic nerve sheath meningioma located at the optic canal area mimicking the progression of a glaucomatous axonal damage. a 60-year-old female patient developed progressive visual field loss and enlargement of the optic disc cup in the left eye while in treatment for primary open-angle glaucoma. because of the rapid progression of axonal loss, the asymmetry of the visual field defect and the fact that intraocular pressure had been under control, a compressive optic neuropathy was suspected. a computerized tomography scan of the orbit was normal but a high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated an optic nerve sheath meningioma located at the optic canal area. compressive lesions of the anterior visual pathways are uncommon causes of optic disc cupping but should be considered in patients suspected of or undergoing treatment for glaucoma that present with atypical progression of visual loss.

Abstract: a case of a perfluoro-n-octane leakage into the orbital cavity after corneoscleral suture, scleral buckling and pars plana vitrectomy in an eye with perforating injury after trauma is reported for the first time. a previously healthy 39-year-old man was sent for ophthalmic evaluation one day after suffering a penetrating ocular trauma in his right eye while hammering a nail. on the initial evaluation, the patient presented sudden reduction of visual acuity on his right eye with a perforating corneoscleral injury, intraocular foreign body and retinal detachment. the patient was submitted to corneoscleral suture, pars plana vitrectomy with perfluoro-n-octane administration to flatten the retina and scleral buckling, when it was found transfixation of the globe by the intraocular foreign body. postoperatively, computed tomography scans of the orbit were ordered due to proptosis, which showed the presence of hyperdense images, suggesting leakage of perfluoro-n-octane into the orbital cavity. thus, in cases of perforating eye injury, one should be suspicious about the possibility of intraocular foreign body, as well as possible occurrence of transfixation of the globe when scheduling the surgery.

Abstract: patients with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (itp) present a high trend to develop systemic lupus erythematosus (sle), especially those with chronic presentation. some authors observed that female gender, older patients and familial history of autoimmune disease in patients with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura are factors that lead to increased susceptibility for the development of systemic lupus erythematosus. based on these facts, we decided to study 5 children with chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and late systemic lupus erythematosus. in this paper, we describe the clinical and laboratorial features of 5 female children with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura that later developed systemic lupus erythematosus. all patients were girls, 3 caucasian, with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura onset age ranged between 6 years and 3 months and 12 years and 1 month (mean - 9 years and 2 months). the age at systemic lupus erythematosus diagnosis ranged between 8 years and 13 years and 8 months (mean - 10 years and 10 months). though, the gap between idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and systemic lupus erythematosus diagnosis ranged between 11 months and 2 years and 9 months (mean - 1 year and 10 months). all patients presented chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (thrombocytopenia lasts longer than 6 months). the systemic lupus erythematosus classification criteria were (in decreasing frequency): malar erythema and positivity of ana in 5 patients; arthritis, hematological (thrombocytopenia) and immunological alterations (positivity of anti-dna) in 4 patients; photosensitivity and positivity of anti-cardiolipin in 3 patients. other manifestations included oral ulcers, renal involvement, leukopenia and auto-immune hemolytic anemia, serositis (pericarditis), neurological involvement and positivity of anti-sm antibody. we would like to emphasize this form of presentation of systemic lupus erythematosus, in which the idiopathic thrombocytopenic pu

Abstract: Magnetic excitations in CuCrO$_{2}$, CuCr$_{0.97}$Mg$_{0.03}$O$_{2}$, Cu$_{0.85}$Ag$_{0.15}$CrO$_{2}$, and CuCr$_{0.85}$Al$_{0.15}$O$_{2}$ have been studied by powder inelastic neutron scattering to elucidate the element substitution effects on the spin dynamics in the Heisenberg triangular-lattice antiferromagnet CuCrO$_{2}$. The magnetic excitations in CuCr$_{0.97}$Mg$_{0.03}$O$_{2}$ consist of a dispersive component and a flat component. Though this feature is apparently similar to CuCrO$_{2}$, the energy structure of the excitation spectrum shows some difference from that in CuCrO$_{2}$. On the other hand, in Cu$_{0.85}$Ag$_{0.15}$CrO$_{2}$ and CuCr$_{0.85}$Al$_{0.15}$O$_{2}$ the flat components are much reduced, the low-energy parts of the excitation spectra become intense, and additional low-energy diffusive spin fluctuations are induced. We argued the origins of these changes in the magnetic excitations are ascribed to effects of the doped holes or change of the dimensionality in the magnetic correlations.
