How to say bad news without compromising the patient's humanity.
Authors: Luna-Solis Y Abstract Communicating bad news is still a communication challenge in the field of care and, despite the there being methodologies that allow us to humanize information that has a great impact on people's lives, it is usually neither taught nor used in daily life, thus bringing about emotional outcomes, that can be, at times, more serious than the disease itself.

Bilateral Multiple Serous Retinal Detachments Following Bone Marrow Transplantation.
Conclusion: Serous retinal detachment is a rare complication following BMT. Significant bilateral improvement after single unilateral intravitreal bevacizumab injection shows not only the possible role of increased level of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in this case, but also the systemic diffusion of the drug and effect on the contralateral eye following unilateral injection.

Ocular Manifestations and Management of Autoimmune Bullous Diseases.

Detection of FZD4, LRP5 and TSPAN12 Genes Variants in Malay Premature Babies with Retinopathy of Prematurity.
Conclusion: Analysis of data obtained from the ROP Malay population will enhance our understanding of these FEVR-causing gene variants. The c.3357G>A (p.V1119V) variant of LRP5, and c.765G>T (p.P255P) and c.*39C>T variants of TSPAN12 could be common polymorphisms in the Malay ethnic group; however, this requires further elucidation. Future studies using larger groups and higher numbers of advanced cases are necessary to evaluate the relationship between FEVR-causing gene variants and the risk of ROP susceptibility in Malaysian infants.

Igg4-related ophthalmic disease presenting as choroidal and orbital lesions
Conclusion: IgG4-related disease is a systemic fibroinflammatory disease, which often presents in another location, as in our patient. In cases of uncertain choroidal and orbital lesions, a thorough workup for other etiologies is indicated, and lymphoma must be ruled out. Steroids are the mainstay of treatment for IgG4-ROD, however, small case series and our patient responded well to rituximab. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of choroidal and orbital lesions secondary to IgG4-ROD.
