Repair of nasal fistula secondary to radiation therapy for Eales's disease

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Eales's disease is characterized by neovascularization and idiopathic retinal and vitreous hemorrhages. Therapy in the past included the use of radiation. A case is reported of a patient who received a dose of 15,000 roentgens (approximately 14,250 rad) to the right eye via temporal and nasal portals. He subsequently lost vision in that eye. Thirty years after the radiation was administered, a nasocutaneous fistula developed, and it was closed with a forehead island flap.
