Abstract Details

Purpose:

The purpose of the study is to investigate the macular, peripapillary nevre fiber layer (RNFL) and subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) and ganglion cell complex (GCC) measurements in patients with unilateral FUS and to compare those, with uninvolved fellow eyes.

Setting:

Ümraniye Training and Research Hospital Ophthalmology Clinic

Methods:

The medical records of thirty-two patients with unilateral FUS who were seen at Uveitis Service of the Ophthalmology Clinic,Umraniye Training and Research Hospital between January 2012 to June 2014 were initially reviewed in this retrospective study.SD OCT (RTVue-100 OCT Optovue Inc, Fremont, California, USA) was used for assesements. SFCT, RNFL, GCC and macular thickness of the eyes with FUS were evaluated and compared with those uninvolved fellow eyes.

Results:

Mean SFCT thickness in eyes with FUS was significantly lower than fellow eyes without FUS (296,47±32,29 μm versus 324,47±26,73μm; p=0,001) and GCC thickness was significantly lower in eyes with FUS than in fellow eyes without FUS (101,09±5,46 μm versus 103,80±6,65μm; p=0,023).There was no significant difference in RNFL, and macular thickness values.

Conclusions:

In our study we found subfoveal choroidal thinning in eyes with FUS that those compared with uninvolved fellow eyes. In our opinion this result can be both associated with auotoimmune response and chronic inflammatuar process during the disease course. Decreased GCC thickness in eyes with FUS suggested that these eyes may be candidates for future glaucoma and GCC thickness value can be used to detect early glaucoma in eyes with FUS during follow-up.
