Ophthalmology Times is pleased to announce the winner of the 2014 Resident Writers Award Program, sponsored by Allergan.
The winner is Bradley Shoss, MD, of Washington University in St. Louis. His winning entry, "Sniffing Up the Wrong Tree,” is featured in the Oct. 15 issue of Ophthalmology Times. His submission presents a patient who revealed regular intranasal dexmethylphenidate (Focalin) abuse for many years. Based on the presentation of his neurotrophic ulcer combined with this social history, the diagnosis of a pharmacologic-induced neurotrophic keratopathy was made.
Congratulations to Dr. Shoss!
