Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


High-resolution spectral-domain optical coherence tomography of a patient affected by acute macular edema secondary to preeclampsia is described. The particular optical coherence tomography pattern was characterized by bilateral macular edema with a tent-shaped organization, associated with massive neurosensorial retinal detachment. Many hyperreflective irregular dots were evident in the context of a subfoveal clear cystic lesion. A different hyperreflective irregularity was detected in the retinal pigment epithelium. The central role of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography among instrumental imaging procedures and for final successful diagnosis in this particular macular edema is emphasized.
