At the National Eye Institute, examination of retinal tissues from 2 enucleated eyes, an eye found to be normal on autopsy, and a chorioretinal
biopsy from 3 patients with PIOL found that RPE cells infiltrated by PIOL had a lower expression of CXCL12 and CXCL13 compared with those adjacent RPE cells not yet invaded.
scars seen as grayish white, well-demarcated areas of fundic depigmentation were noted bilaterally in 1 bird and unilaterally OD in another bird.
9,10) Recently, Gonzales and Chan (11) recommended external transcleral chorioretinal
and transvitreal retinochoroidal biopsies when diagnostic vitrectomy is inconclusive but when a very high suspicion for PIOL remains.

depigmentation or hyperpigmentation, or both.
Her visual impairment was due to bilateral chorioretinal

He has played a leading role and is widely published in the development of digital indocyanine green angiography (ICG) for the evaluation and management of macular degeneration and chorioretinal
4) The goal of treatment is to eliminate traction and to create chorioretinal
adhesions around the tear.
A world-renowned retinal specialist whose field of interest is age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and unusual chorioretinal
The degenerations are considered by type: retinovitreal degenerations involve the interface between the retina and vitreous; chorioretinal
degenerations occur between the retina down to the choroid; and intraretinal degenerations, covered in the second installment of the series, involve the retina itself.
