Resumen

MANRIQUE-CERRILLO, M et al. Bilateral macular cysts secondary to electric current strike: A case report. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2004, vol.79, n.1, pp.37-39. ISSN 0365-6691.

Objective: To report the clinical and tomographic findings in a case of maculopathy secondary to high-tension electric current strike. Case report: A 27-year-old male refers a reduction in his visual acuity after electric strike. Visual acuity was 0.05 in both eyes. Circular reddish macular lesions measuring 400 µm in RE and 200 µm in LE were evident. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) showed intraretinal foveal cysts. At the third month follow-up visit, visual acuity had improved to 0.4 in RE and 0.5 in LE. Clinical and tomographic evaluation showed a reduction of the foveal cysts. Discussion: Electricity affects retinal pigment epithelium and retina by thermal denaturation. OCT provides a conclusive diagnosis.

Palabras clave : Macular cysts; electric strike; optical coherence tomography.
