It can also early discover retinopathy with short course.15 Retinopathy manifests as dotted fluorescence, capillary filling defects, papillary ectasia and fluorescence leakage.16 Moreover, it can be used for comprehensively understanding the tendency of fundus lesions, observing whether there is increase of microangioma and enlargement of capillary non-perfusion area and the severity of fluorescein leakage, and correctly evaluate the severity of retinopathy and its development tendency.17 Zhao XQ considered that FFA could discover earlier pathological changes which cannot be identified by ophthalmoscopy of patients who have suffered from diabetes for less than 5 years,18 especially capillary fluorescence leakage.
Also, bruises on the nose, ears and dorsal region of feet; the capillary filling increased to 5s (Fig.
With comprehensive clinical examination and history taking, the signs and symptoms like pallor / colour changes / capillary filling, temperature (cold), distal pulses, claudication pain and rest pain were observed.
27(22.4%) patients had marked rise in skin temperature and clinically skin colour was improved with decreased capillary filling time.
Apnea, cyanosis, lethargy and prolongation in capillary filling time developed on the postnatal 37th day in a preterm baby who was born at the 30th gestational week with a birth weight of 1 300 g.
Two days later (postnatal 37th day), the baby's general status deteriorated suddenly and sepsis was considered when superficial respiration, apnea, lethagy, cyanosis and prolongation of capillary filling time were found on physical examination.

In accordance with our results, McCulloch and Kemper showed that VCT effectively promotes capillary filling [6].
However, his increased heart rate, low blood pressure, prolonged capillary filling time, and poor color were signs of a child in shock.
On physical examination, general state was poor, body temperature was 38,2[degrees]C (axillary), capillary filling time was normal, marked cyanosis was present in the lips and tongue and clubbing was present in both hands.
