  • Edward Okun
Article

Summary

The evolution, of cases of full blown sickle cell retinopathy have been documented by fundus photographs. Interpretation of these sequential changes have led to a reconstruction of the probable pathogenesis of this unique retinopathy.

Résumé

L'évolution de rétinopathies à cellules falciformes a été suivie par des rétinographies en série. L'interprétation de ces modicifations permet d'établir la pathogénie probable de cette rétinopathie très particulière.

Zusammenfassung

Die Entwicklung und der Verlauf der Retinopathie mit Sichelzellen wurde durch eine Reihe von Fundusphotographien objektiviert. Die Interpretation der Veränderungen erlaubt es, die wahrscheinliche Pathogenese dieser einzigartigen Retinopathie zu rekonstruieren.
