EyeRounds Online Atlas of Ophthalmology
Contributor: William Charles Caccamise, Sr, MD, Retired Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry
*Dr. Caccamise has very generously shared his images of patients taken while operating during the "eye season" in rural India as well as those from his private practice during the 1960's and 1970's. Many of his images are significant for their historical perspective and for techniques and conditions seen in settings in undeveloped areas.
Intumescent cataracta neurodermatica, i.e. a cataract associated with atopic dermatitis
The initial Atlas photo of this patient was taken 3 months before this photo. The cataract in the OS went from the incipient stage to this well-developed intumescent stage within 3 months. All patients with atopic dermatitis must be watched carefully for significant cataract changes.
This photo was taken 3 mos prior to the 1st photo. The incipient cataract OS progressed to the intumescent stage during the 3 mos.
