Pediatric Ophthalmology Subspecialty Day 2016
Diagnostic & Screening, Pediatric Ophth/Strabismus
This case was presented by Dr. Faruk Orge at Pediatric Subspecialty Day 2016. A 7-year-old girl was referred to pediatric ophthalmology service for evaluation secondary to increased frequency of persistent headaches. She complained of occipital headaches coming in waves. An OCT measurement of retinal nerve fiber layer thickness of superior and inferior regions were 224.5 μm and 160.5 μm, respectively, for the right eye. She had a history of pan-hypopituitarism, and the dosing of growth hormone was the primary cause of the headaches.
