Comparison of aqueous concentrations of angiogenic and inflammatory cytokines based on optical coherence tomography patterns of diabetic macular edema

Kim Moosang

Introduction: The purpose was to compare aqueous inflammatory and angiogenic cytokine levels in diabetic macular edema (DME).Methods: Aqueous samples were obtained from 50 eyes with DME and 12 normal eyes (control group). DME was classified according to the morphologic pattern based on optical coherence tomography: Diffuse retinal thickening (DRT; n=19), cystoid macular edema (CME; n=17), or serous retinal detachment (SRD; n=14...

Diabetic papillopathy with macular edema treated with intravitreal ranibizumab

Kim Moosang

Introduction: We report a case of diabetic papillopathy that demonstrated a resolution of optic disk swelling and rapid visual recovery when intravitreal ranibizumab was administered.Case report: A 51-year-old male presented with acute painless visual loss in his right eye. His vision was 20/320 in the right eye and 20/50 in the left eye. Fundus examination of the right eye showed nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy with macular edema and a swollen opt...
