Subretinal napkin-ring membrane in proliferative vitreoretinopathy

, : Subretinal napkin-ring membrane in proliferative vitreoretinopathy. Archives of Ophthalmology 118(9): 1287-1289, September

A "napkin-ring" subretinal membrane is an unusual expression of subretinal proliferation associated with retinal detachment. An 80-year-old man with a total funnel-shaped retinal detachment underwent pars plana vitrectomy, 360degree relaxing retinotomy, excision of a subretinal napkin-ring membrane, and silicone oil injection. Histopathologic examination of the removed napkin-ring subretinal membrane revealed the presence of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) as the major source of cells within the membrane. Myofibroblasts were the most common cellular constituents; the total number of these cells may have correlated with the degree of clinical contraction, causing a funnel-shaped retinal detachment.

Cultures of rat brain cortex astrocytes were exposed to 10(-10)-10(-9)M of the HIV-1 envelope glycoprotein, gp120. No specific binding was revealed by the iodinated protein, suggesting expression of only a few sites onto the cells. In contrast, tw...
