Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: To evaluate macular thickness and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in pediatric patients with primary malnutrition.
Material and Methods: Macular and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thicknesses of 90 pediatric patients with primary malnutrition were measured by spectral field optical coherence tomography. These findings were compared with the data of 50 age-matched healthy children.
Results: There were no statistically significant differences in terms of age, gender and refractive status between the groups. In the primary malnutrition group, 17 of 90 patients had decreased retinal nerve fiber layer values. There were no patients with decreased retinal nerve fiber layer values in the control group and this difference was statistically significant (p 0.001). Retinal nerve fiber layer was thinner in the patients with primary malnutrition with low serum vitamin D and ferritin levels. (p=0.025, p0.001, respectively) We found that as the severity of malnutrition increased according to weight and height, the thinning of the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer increased, especially in the temporal segment. (r: -0.249 p=:0.003, r: -0.251 p=0.002, respectively).
Conclusion: Undernutrition with micronutrient deficiencies may cause retinal nerve fiber layer thinning in pediatric cases. Therefore, it should be treated early before vision defects occur.
