Karti and co-workers aimed to elucidate the en face optical coherence tomography (OCT) patterns of macular edema in eyes with angiographically documented uveitic macular edema (UME). The researchers included thirty-nine eyes of 29 patients with angiographically proven UME.
Eyes with UME were divided into three subgroups (petaloid, sunflower and spoke-wheel pattern) with the help of en face OCT imaging. The most common en face OCT pattern was petaloid type (64 %). Eleven eyes (28 %) had sunflower pattern and three (8%) spoke-wheel pattern.
Karti and co-workers concludded that, three morphological en face OCT patterns might be present in patients with UME and no statistically significant difference among the patterns is present in terms of visual acuity and anatomic parameters.
