Extensive capillary nonperfusion in the retina in a case of sjogren's syndrome

, : Extensive capillary nonperfusion in the retina in a case of sjogren's syndrome. Rinsho Ganka 42(3): 290-294

A 64-year-old female presented with rubeosis in both eyes. Fluorescein fundus angiography revealed extensive capillary nonperfusion, hyperpermeability of vessels and neovascularization. She was diagnosed as Sjogren's syndrome on account of positive Schirmer test, rose-bengal staining of consialography. Immunological studies suggested an intermediate type between Sjogren syndrome and systemic lupus erythematosus. The deficient autoimmune system was apparently causatively related with the observed retinal vascular abnormalities.

However, there is some controversy as to the role played by this mutation in arterial thrombotic disease. The association of peripheral capillary non...
