Electron Microscopic Evidence of Photoreceptor Outer-segments in the Trabecular Meshwork in a Case of Schwartz-Matsuo Syndrome

https://journals.lww.com/glaucomajournal/Fulltext/2019/09000/Electron_Microscopic_Evidence_of_Photoreceptor.15.aspx

imagePurpose:
To describe a case of photoreceptor outer segment glaucoma (Schwartz-Matsuo syndrome) with electron microscopic evidence of photoreceptor outer segments in the trabecular meshwork (TM).
Design:
This is a clinicopathologic case report.
Participant:
A 48-year-old Filipino man.
Methods:
Specimens of aqueous humor and TM in a clinical case of Schwartz-Matsuo syndrome were examined by electron microscopy.
Main Outcome Measures:
Electron photomicroscopy.
Results:
Electron microscopy showed evidence of retinal photoreceptor outer-segments in both an aqueous humor and a TM specimen.
Conclusion:
Schwartz-Matsuo syndrome is associated with the presence of photoreceptor outer segments in the TM.
