What your patient might ask you…

Can you get Ebola in the eye?

Yes, but until recently, researchers were not totally sure how this travels to the eye.
paper was published in JAMA Ophthalmology that examined 14 Ebola survivors with retinal manifestations. The lesions have a distinct appearance and an OCT of the larger lesions showed a collapse of the overlying retina. This corresponds to the visual field defects that respected the horizontal raphe.

What does all that mean?
The authors state these findings are consistent with a neuronal rather than a vascular pathogenesis.
