Abstract Details


To evaluate the multimodal imaging including optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) findings in patients with posterior microphthalmos (PM).


Eye Research centre, Farabi Eye Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran


In an observational case series, subjects with clinical proven PM were underwent complete ophthalmic examination, including refraction, fluorescein angiography, optical coherence tomography (OCT), OCT-A, B-scan ultrasonography, axial length (AL) measurement using IOL Master optical measuring, and pentacam evaluation.


Four eyes of two patients, eight and twenty three years old, with PM were included. Both patients were high hyperopia with partial thickness retinal fold in macula, retinoschisis, and foveal hypoplasia. AL was less than 17 mm with scleral thickening in all eyes. OCT-A showed absence of foveal avascular zone in both superficial and deep capillary plexus. Pentacam showed corneal steepness, shallow anterior chamber and low anterior chamber volume.


There was small anterior segment dimensions, shallow and low volume anterior chamber, in PM patients. OCT-A findings showed absence of avascular zone in both superficial and deep capillary plexus.
