De novo lesions in presumed ocular histoplasmosis-like syndrome. (1/118)

Two patients with multifocal choroiditis similar or identical to POHS are presented. Colour photographs and fluorescein angiography document the occurrence of de novo lesions in the originally involved eye. The cases also demonstrate the development of new choroidal lesions within the originally involved eye, the early evolution of the "basic choroidal lesion", and the need for fluorescein angiography for visualizing the underlying choroidal lesion.  (+info)

New animal model for human ocular toxocariasis: ophthalmoscopic observation. (2/118)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Although human ocular toxocariasis causes severe vision defect, little is known about its aetiology, diagnosis, and treatment. To develop a new animal model for human ocular toxocariasis, ophthalmological findings of fundi in Mongolian gerbils, Meriones unguiculatus, and BALB/c mice were investigated following infection with Toxocara canis. METHODS: Using an ophthalmoscope, which was specifically developed to observe the fundi of small animals, ocular changes of fundi of 20 gerbils and 11 mice were monitored after oral infection with embryonated eggs of T canis. RESULTS: Vitreous, choroidal, and retinal haemorrhages were consistently observed in Mongolian gerbils, but rarely in mice. Severe exudative lesions and vasculitis were often present in gerbils but not in mice. Migrating larvae were also frequently observed in gerbils. CONCLUSION: Mongolian gerbils are more appropriate animal model for human ocular toxocariasis than previously used experimental animal such as mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, and monkeys because of its high susceptibility of ocular infection.  (+info)

Detection of specific immunoglobulin E during maternal, fetal, and congenital toxoplasmosis. (3/118)

Toxoplasma immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies in 664 serum samples were evaluated by using an immunocapture method with a suspension of tachyzoites prepared in the laboratory in order to evaluate its usefulness in the diagnosis of acute Toxoplasma gondii infection during pregnancy, congenital infection, and progressive toxoplasmosis. IgE antibodies were never detected in sera from seronegative women, from patients with chronic toxoplasma infection, or from infants without congenital toxoplasmosis. In contrast, they were detected in 86.6% of patients with toxoplasmic seroconversion, and compared with IgA and IgM, the short kinetics of IgE was useful to date the infection precisely. For the diagnosis of congenital toxoplasmosis, specific IgE detected was less frequently than IgM or IgA (25 versus 67.3%), but its detection during follow-up of children may be interesting, reflecting an immunological rebound. Finally, IgE was detected early and persisted longer in progressive toxoplasmosis with cervical adenopathies, so it was also a good marker of the evolution of toxoplasma infection.  (+info)

Toxoplasma gondii infection induces gene expression and secretion of interleukin 1 (IL-1), IL-6, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, and intercellular adhesion molecule 1 by human retinal pigment epithelial cells. (4/118)

We have used human retinal pigment epithelial (HRPE) cultures to investigate the primary cellular responses of retinal resident cells to intracellular Toxoplasma gondii replication. At 4 days postinoculation, when all of the cells were infected, the secretion of interleukin 1beta (IL-1beta), IL-6, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), and intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1) was augmented by 23-, 10-, 8-, and 5-fold, respectively, over the control. Northern and reverse transcriptase PCR analyses showed significant upregulation of steady-state levels of mRNA for IL-1beta, IL-6, GM-CSF, and ICAM-1. The secretion of these molecules by HRPE cells may play a critical immunoregulatory role in the pathophysiological processes associated with T. gondii-induced retinochoroiditis.  (+info)

Childhood blindness and visual loss: an assessment at two institutions including a "new" cause. (5/118)

PURPOSE: This study was initiated to investigate the causes of childhood blindness and visual impairment in the United States. We also sought a particular etiology--congenital lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV)--which has been considered exceedingly rare, in a fixed target population of children, the severely mentally retarded. METHODS: We undertook a library-based study of the world literature to shed light on the causes of childhood blindness internationally and to put our data in context. We prospectively examined all consented children (159) at 2 institutions in the United States to determine their ocular status and the etiology of any visual loss present. One of the institutions is a school for the visually impaired (hereafter referred to as Location V), in which most of the students have normal mentation. The other is a home for severely mentally retarded, nonambulatory children (hereafter referred to as Location M). This institution was selected specifically to provide a sample of visual loss associated with severe retardation because the handful of cases of LCMV in the literature have been associated with severe central nervous system insults. Histories were obtained from records on site, and all children received a complete cyclopleged ophthalmic examination at their institution performed by the author. Patients at Location M with chorioretinal scars consistent with intrauterine infection (a possible sign of LCMV) had separate consents for blood drawing. Sera was obtained and sent for standard TORCHS titers, toxoplasmosis titers (Jack S. Remington, MD, Palo Alto, Calif), and ELISA testing for LCMV (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Ga). RESULTS: The diagnoses at Location V were varied and included retinopathy of prematurity (19.4%), optic atrophy (19.4%), retinitis pigmentosa (14.5%), optic nerve hypoplasia (12.9%), cataracts (8.1%), foveal hypoplasia (8.1%), persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (4.8%), and microphthalmos (3.2%). The most common diagnosis at Location M was bilateral optic atrophy, which was found in 65% of the patients examined who had visual loss. Of these, the insults were most often congenital (42.6%), with birth trauma, prematurity, and genetics each responsible for about 15% of the optic atrophy. The second most common diagnosis was cortical visual impairment (24%), followed by chorioretinal scars (5%), which are strongly suggestive of intrauterine infection. Of 95 patients examined at Location M, 4 had chorioretinal scars. Two of these had dramatically elevated titers for LCMV, as did one of their mothers. One of the other 2 children died before serum could be drawn, and the fourth had negative titers for both TORCHS and LCMV. CONCLUSIONS: At both locations studied, visual loss was most often due to congenital insults, whether genetic or simply prenatal. The visual loss at Location V was twice as likely as that at Location M to be caused by a genetic disorder. The genetic disorders at Location V were more often isolated eye diseases, while those among the severely retarded at Location M were more generalized genetic disorders. Our study identified optic atrophy as a common diagnosis among the severely mentally retarded with vision loss, a finding that is supported by previous studies in other countries. In our population of severely retarded children, the target etiology of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus was responsible for half the visual loss secondary to chorioretinitis from intrauterine infection. This is more common than would be predicted by the few cases previously described in the literature, and strongly suggests that LCMV may be a more common cause of visual loss than previously appreciated. We believe that serology for LCMV should be part of the workup for congenital chorioretinitis, especially if the TORCHS titers are negative, and that perhaps the mnemonic should be revised to "TORCHS + L." Childhood blindness and visual impairment are tragic and co  (+info)

Population based assessment of uveitis in an urban population in southern India. (6/118)

AIM: To assess the prevalence of active and inactive uveitis unrelated to previous surgery or trauma in an urban population in southern India. METHODS: As part of the Andhra Pradesh Eye Disease Study, 2522 subjects (85.4% of those eligible), a sample representative of the population of Hyderabad city in southern India, underwent interview and detailed dilated eye examination. Presence of sequelae of uveitis without current active inflammation was defined as inactive uveitis. RESULTS: Unequivocal evidence of active or inactive uveitis unrelated to previous surgery or trauma was present in 21 subjects, an age-sex adjusted prevalence of 0.73% (95% confidence interval (CI) 0.44-1.14%). Active uveitis was present in eight subjects, an age-sex adjusted prevalence of 0.37% (95% CI 0. 19-0.70), of which 0.06% was anterior, 0.25% intermediate, and 0.06% posterior. The 0.36% (95% CI 0.17-0.68%) prevalence of inactive uveitis included macular chorioretinitis scars (0.26%), anterior (0. 07%) and previous vasculitis involving the whole eye (0.03%). The prevalence of visual impairment due to uveitis of less than 6/18 in at least one eye was 0.27%, less than 6/60 in at least one eye was 0. 16%, and less than 6/60 in both eyes was 0.03%. CONCLUSION: These population based cross sectional data give an estimate of the prevalence of various types of uveitis in this urban population in India. Active or past uveitis that might need treatment at some stage was present in one of every 140 people in this population.  (+info)

Rapid progressive subacute sclerosing panencephalitis in a 2-year-old child with congenital athyreosis. (7/118)

We present the unique case of a 2-year-old girl with congenital athyreosis who acquired primary measles virus infection at the age of 18 months, coincidentally with an Epstein-Barr virus infection. First neurologic symptoms of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis appeared 5 months later, and the girl died within 6 months after a rapid progressive illness. Factors possibly predisposing to this extraordinary disease course-primary measles virus infection at an early age and lack of evidence for immunodeficiency-are discussed.  (+info)

Effect of Fas and Fas ligand deficiency in resistance of C57BL/6 mice to HSV-1 keratitis and chorioretinitis. (8/118)

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of Fas and Fas ligand (FasL) deficiency on the development of herpes stromal keratitis and on the von Szily model of herpes retinitis in C57BL/6 mice, which are ordinarily resistant to development of both of these herpetic diseases. METHODS: Anterior chamber inoculation of the right eye of each mouse with various titers of HSV-1 (KOS strain) was performed. Both eyes of each mouse were enucleated on postinoculation day 15 and processed for histopathologic examination. HSV-1 was inoculated into one cornea of other mice, and the severity of stromal keratitis was scored. RESULTS: Contralateral destructive chorioretinitis developed in susceptible Balb/cByj mice (19/23); ipsilateral chorioretinitis did not occur (0/23). Stromal keratitis developed in susceptible C.AL-20 mice (15/16). None of the C57BL/6 (0/10 for keratitis or 0/20 for retinitis) developed inflammation. Neither did B6.SMN.C3H.gld (FasL deficient; 0/12 or 0/28) or B6.MRL.lpr (Fas deficient; 0/11 or 0/34) mice (keratitis or contralateral chorioretinitis). Minimal scattering of inflammatory cells in the contralateral retina but not destructive chorioretinitis was observed in two C57BL/6, three B6.SMN.C3H.gld, and five B6.MRL.lpr mice. Few inflammatory cells were also found in the ipsilateral vitreous and vitreoretinal interface (but not destructive chorioretinitis) of all C57BL/6, two gld, and three lpr mice. CONCLUSIONS: Immune dysregulation secondary to deficiency in Fas or FasL system does not influence the resistance of the C57BL/6 mice to develop herpes simplex keratitis or destructive herpes simplex chorioretinitis.  (+info)

Toxoplasma chorioretinitis, more simply known as ocular toxoplasmosis, is probably the most common cause of infections in the back of the eye (posterior segment) worldwide. The causitive agent is Toxoplasma gondii, and in the United States, most cases are acquired congenitally. The most common symptom is decreased visual acuity in one eye. The diagnosis is made by examination of the eye, using ophthalmoscopy. Sometimes serologic testing is used to rule out the disease, but due to high rates of false positives, serologies are not diagnostic of toxoplasmic retinitis. If vision is not compromised, treatment may not be necessary. When vision is affected or threatened, treatment consists of pyrimethamine, sulfadiazine, and folinic acid for 4-6 weeks. Prednisone is sometimes used to decrease inflammation. A unilateral decrease in visual acuity is the most common symptom of toxoplasmic retinitis. Under ophthalmic examination, toxoplasmic chorioretinitis classically appears as a focal, white retinitis ...

Endogenous fungal endophthalmitis is a serious vision-threatening condition that occurs in immunosuppressed patients with candidemia. We report a complicated case of Candida albicans chorioretinitis that progressed to endophthalmitis. The patient required intravitreal and systemic anti-fungal medications with pars plana vitrectomy for successful treatment. Multimodal imaging using fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, spectral domain optical coherence tomography, and fundus autofluorescence was obtained throughout treatment. These modalities localized the Candida infection in the choroid, penetrating Bruchs membrane, the retinal pigment epithelium, and the retina to enter the vitreous cavity. This infectious route resulted in loss of the retinal pigment epithelium, photoreceptors, and outer retinal layers, with scar formation that resulted in vision loss and increased future risk of choroidal neovascular membranes. Multimodal imaging of C. albicans chorioretinitis allows for accurate diagnosis,

A 28 year-old man presented with sudden visual loss in his left eye. Best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20 in the right eye and 20/400 in the left eye. Fundus examination showed a whitish retinal lesion of the superotemporal quadrant involving the supero-temporal retinal vein branch with mild vitritis. Fluorescein angiography confirmed active retinochoroidal inflammation (black arrow) with delayed filling and tortuosity of the involved vein (white arrow); capillary dilatation was present within the affected drainage area (white arrowhead) with dye leakage in late frames, resulting in cystoid macular edema (black arrowhead) which was sectorial on macular OCT (optical coherence tomography) (star). Serological tests, after anterior chamber puncture, confirmed local production of specific anti toxoplasma antibodies. The patient was treated with clindamycin 150 mg four times a day and prednisolone 60 mg daily. After 6 weeks of antiparasitic therapy the lesion became inactive and visual acuity improved.
Abstract: : Purpose: Eosinophilic enteritis (EE) is defined by the presence of intestinal symptoms and eosinophilic infiltration, traditionally in the absence of extra-intestinal organ involvement. Peripheral blood eosinophilia is found in the majority of patients. EE is common in Australia and is often associated with infection by the common dog hookworm Ancylostoma caninum, although other worms have been identified. We hereby describe a case of unusual unilateral chorioretinitis and subretinal neovascularization in a young boy with eosinophilic enteritis. Methods: Report of a single, observational case. Results: A 10-year-old Caucasian boy (dog-owner) presented with unilateral, painless, subacute loss of vision. Two months previously, visual acuity (VA) in the left eye was correctable to 20/30. On presentation, VA was 20/20 OD and counting finger (CF) OS. Anterior segments were normal. The right fundus was unremarkable. The left fundus had an extensive, creamy, central chorioretinal lesion ...

Birdshot chorioretinitis (BSCR) is a rare ocular inflammatory disorder associated with HLA-A29 and characterized by bilateral choroidal lesions, vitritis, macular edema, and retinal vasculitis. Ocular inflammation associated with HLA-B27 is typically a recurrent, unilateral, acute anterior uveitis (AAU) that is frequently associated with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). To date, there are no reports of patients with both HLA-A29-positive BSCR and HLA-B27 AAU/AS in the English literature. A 50-year-old man with a history of bilateral anterior uveitis, vitritis, retinal vasculitis, and cream-colored depigmented oval choroidal lesions was found to be HLA-A29 and HLA-B27 positive. His lumbar spine and sacroiliac joint films revealed fusion of the spine, known as `bamboo spine compatible with the diagnosis of ankylosing spondyloarthropathy. He had chronic ocular inflammation that was difficult to control with systemic steroids and immunomodulatory agents. This is the only report of a patient with both HLA-A29

AU - Bandello, Francesco. PY - 2012/8. Y1 - 2012/8. N2 - We present a case of a patient with bilateral posterior uveitis HLA-A29 positive, masquerading intraocular lymphoma. A 43 year-old woman presented with bilateral vitritis and chorioretinal lesions compatible with "birdshot lesions". The patient was initially diagnosed with birdshot retinochoroidopathy and later on, during follow up, the occurrence of neurologic involvement and the lack of response to systemic immunosuppression led us to re-evaluate the diagnosis. A definite diagnosis of intraocular lymphoma with central nervous system involvement was made. This case is presented to highlight the importance of careful follow-up of patients with chronic uveitis and re-evaluation of systemic symptoms and signs, in particular when ocular findings are highly ...

Toxoplasmic chorioretinitis may be diagnosed as a congenital or postnatally acquired disease due to primary infection or reactivation of latent infection. Toxoplasmosis causes an acute focal retinitis in which the hallmark is a thickened cream-colored retina accompanied by an overlying intense vitreal inflammatory reaction (headlight in the fog appearance). Recurrent lesions are usually seen at the borders of chorioretinal scars (Fig. 1C). Primary ocular infections are less common than reactivation of old lesions. Based on seroprevalence data, the overall incidence of infection with Toxoplasma gondii ranges from 22.5% in the United States to 75% in El Salvador. In immunocompetent individuals, the primary infection is usually asymptomatic, although a small percentage of individuals will develop chorioretinitis, lymphadenitis, myocarditis, or polymyositis. An unfavorable, life-threatening course of toxoplasmosis would be expected only in persons with impaired T-cell-mediated immunity, such as ...
Purpose: : To evaluate the outcome of patients with birdshot retinochoroidopathy (BRC) treated with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF, CellCept®) or mycophenolate sodium (MPS, Myfortic®). Methods: : We retrospectively reviewed the medical charts of patients with BRC who were treated with MMF or MA and were evaluated consecutively at a tertiary-care german uveitis clinic over a 27-year period. Data on age, gender, follow-up time, treatment before and side effects of MMF/MPA treatment were recorded. In addition logMAR visual acuities, electroretinograms (ERGs), and visual field findings were measured for evaluation of disease control. Results: : Fourteen BRC patients (female:male=9:5), all of whom were HLA-B29 positive, with a mean uveitis duration of 55.8 months (range 5-240 months) before MMF or MPS therapy were included.

Background Congenital toxoplasmosis is associated with severe complications. two trimesters, acute toxoplasmosis contamination is usually characterised by septic symptoms, hepatosplenomegaly, thrombocytopenia, hyperbilirubinemia, and central nervous system infections [1, 7, 8] The latter typically present with encephalitis in combination with retinochorioiditis, hydrocephalus, intracranial calcifications, microphthalmia, and microcephaly, as well as calcifying necroses developing from reactive inflammations, to the point of spontaneous abortion [9]. In contrast, the majority of fetuses infected during the third trimester lack pathological findings at birth (70C90?%) [10, 11]. However, in 30C70?% of offspring with clinical abnormalities, those abnormalities are not detected in the beginning; these children typically have chorioretinitis, hearing loss, and mental retardation later in life [12, 13]. infections are mostly asymptomatic in adults and immunocompetent individuals; consequently, acute ...

PATIENT PRESENTATION A 7-month-old male child is brought to a physical therapist to be evaluated for a delay in motor skills acquisition. According to parental report, he has been slower to achieve motor milestones than his siblings. He has recently begun rolling from supine to prone and prone to supine and reportedly is beginning to sit momentarily. He was diagnosed with chorioretinitis shortly after birth which was successfully treated with antibiotics and steroids, although he continues to demonstrate mild photosensitivity. Parents report that he had seizures in the first few weeks of life that are well controlled on his current medication. Prenatal maternal history is positive for mild flu-like symptoms in the second trimester that went unreported.. Upon physical examination, the infant plays in supine, while holding a small toy with both hands. He rolls to prone in both directions to secure a toy held out of reach. He is vocally responsive to his parents and the examiner. He smiles and ...

Birdshot uveitis is a rare sight-threatening condition in which the bodys immune system attacks the retina and the choroid - two critical structures in the eye.. One of the major challenges in caring for people with birdshot is how difficult it is to tell when the condition is actively causing inflammation. There is no widely available, sensitive way to measure this, which can lead to over-treatment or under-treatment, both of which can cause problems.. The team has demonstrated that the light-based imaging device known as optical coherence tomography (OCT) can be used outside its usual field of action to detect changes in the retina and choroid in birdshot. It can even pick up changes in the vitreous jelly which fills the middle of the eye.. In this project they are using these imaging techniques to study how these features change over time and to assess how good this method could be for detecting flare-ups of disease. They believe that this approach will provide a patient-friendly way of ...

Objective. To perform an evidence-based review of treatments for Toxoplasma retinochoroiditis (TRC). Methods. A systematic literature search was performed using the PubMed database and the key phrase "ocular toxoplasmosis treatment" and the filter for "controlled clinical trial" and "randomized clinical trial" as well as OVID medline (1946 to May week 2 2014) using the keyword "ocular toxoplasmosis". The included studies were used to evaluate the various treatment modalities of TRC. Results. The electronic search yielded a total of 974 publications of which 44 reported on the treatment of ocular toxoplasmosis. There were 9 randomized controlled studies and an additional 3 comparative studies on the treatment of acute TRC with systemic or intravitreous antibiotics or on reducing the recurrences of TRC. Endpoints of studies included visual acuity improvement, inflammatory response, lesion size changes, recurrences of lesions, and adverse effects of medications. Conclusions. There was conflicting ...
Cytomegalovirus retinitis commonly presents in immunocompromised lymphocytopenic patients, mainly in patients with AIDS. Occurances of CMV retinitis in immunocompetent patients although rare, have been described [9].. This report presents a case of bilateral CMV retinitis in an HIV negative patient with non-Hodgkins lymphoma who had a normal lymphocyte count. Intraocular inflammation of CMV aetiology occurred despite oral prophylaxis with valganciclovir. Similar cases have been published, where valganciclovir prophylaxis or ganciclovir/valganciclovir treatment were unable to prevent CMV retinitis because of drug resistance [10, 11].. It is critical to differentiate lymphomatous chorioretinal infiltration from opportunistic CMV infection in order to obtain an accurate diagnosis and initiate effective treatment in patients with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. It is well known that the differential diagnosis of such cases should also include fulminant toxoplasmic chorioretinitis, mycotic endophthalmitis, ...
Abstract: Purpose: To investigate whether recurrence rates of ocular toxoplasmosis are higher during pregnancy among women of childbearing age.Design: Retrospective longitudinal cohort study.Methods: We reviewed medical records of all women seen at a university eye clinic (Utrecht, Netherlands) during episodes of active toxoplasmic retinochoroiditis that occurred while the women were of childbearing age (16-42 years). Each woman was sent a questionnaire requesting information regarding all pregnancies and episodes of ocular toxoplasmosis, whether or not episodes were observed at the eye clinic. Conditional fixed-effects Poisson regression was used to model incident rate ratios of recurrence during pregnant versus non-pregnant intervals, adjusted (Read more...) Full Story →. ...

It has been 100 years since Toxoplasma gondii was initially described in Tunis by Nicolle and Manceaux (1908) in the tissues of the gundi (Ctenodoactylus gundi) and in Brazil by Splendore (1908) in the tissues of a rabbit. Toxoplasma gondii is a ubiquitous, Apicomplexan parasite of warm-blooded animals that can cause several clinical syndromes including encephalitis, chorioretinitis, congenital infection and neonatal mortality. Fifteen years after the description of T. gondii by Nicolle and Manceaux a fatal case of toxoplasmosis in a child was reported by Janků. In 1939 Wolf, Cowen and Paige were the first to conclusively identify T. gondii as a cause of human disease. This review examines the clinical manifestations of infection with T. gondii and the history of the discovery of these manifestations ...

N2 - Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathways are major signal transduction systems by which eukaryotic cells convert environmental cues to intracellular events, such as cell proliferation and differentiation. Toxoplasma gondii is an obligate intracellular protozoan that is both a human and animal pathogen. This Apicomplexan causes significant morbidity and mortality in immune-competent and immune-compromised hosts. In humans, the most common manifestations of T. gondii infections are chorioretinitis in congenital infection and encephalitis in immune-compromised patients, such as patients with advanced AIDS. We have identified a T. gondii homolog of the MAPK family that we have called TgMAPK2. ...
Raster scanning spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) enables realistic three-dimensional (3D) imaging of macular disease. This approach allows the clinician to investigate the diagnostic situation in detail before and during pharmacological or surgical intervention. This study demonstrates the clinical potential of SD-OCT in chorioretinal disease. Selected datasets are presented to visualize typical morphologic findings, which are identified in more than 2700 patients. Scans are presented as online assessable 3D-models. Clinically relevant structures are visualized in macular disease and highlight the importance of precise imaging, which clearly is a clinical necessity to plan and indicate modern therapeutic strategies for our patients.. ©2009 Optical Society of America.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of intravitreal injections of ranibizumab in the treatment of AMD variants and other choroidal neovascularization (CNV) related conditions (Coats disease, idiopathic perifoveal telangiectasia, retinal angiomatous proliferation, polypoidal vasculopathy, pseudoxanthoma elasticum, pathological myopia, multi-focal choroiditis, rubeosis iridis) using the incidence and severity of adverse events.. Limited forms of treatment are available that limit the loss of visual acuity. However, the patients may not have any substantial improvement in acuity or function. Therefore there remains a significant unmet need for therapeutic options managing the neovascularization and its consequences.. Lucentis (ranibizumab) injection will be considered as an attempt to control the growth of the abnormal vessels because of evidence suggesting that angiogenic factors, such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), play a role in the pathogenesis ...
Uveitis can be caused by autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis. It can also be caused by infection or exposure to toxins. In many cases, the cause is unknown.. The most common form of uveitis is anterior uveitis. This involves inflammation in the front part of the eye. It is often called iritis because it usually only affects the iris, the colored part of the eye. The inflammation may be linked with autoimmune diseases, but most cases occur in healthy people. The disorder may affect only one eye. It is most common in young and middle-aged people.. Posterior uveitis affects the back part of the uvea. It involves primarily the choroid, which is a layer of blood vessels and connective tissue in the middle part of the eye. This type of uveitis is called choroiditis. If the retina is also involved, it is called chorioretinitis. You may develop this condition if you have had a body-wide (systemic) infection or if you have an autoimmune disease.. Another form of ...
In a recent case report, vitritis and chorioretinitis were described in a patient with presumed West Nile virus infection. We describe herein a patient in an ou
By applying an adjusted index of recurrences, we were able to avoid the bias of variable follow-up in our patients. One of the most important findings was that the recurrences index was influenced by the status of inflammation in that recurrence was more common in those seen with active disease. This is in agreement with a recent study4 that showed that the risk of a recurrence was highest soon after an episode, and then declined as the patient continued to remain recurrence-free (clustering). This has been a significant finding that should be taken into account when recurrences of ocular toxoplasmosis are analysed. In our case, we stratified all the subsequent variables and separated the group with active lesions from those with an inactive scar. By doing this, we found a significant difference according to the origin of infection in the inactive group (a higher index of recurrences in non-congenital infection). This is surprising, as congenital infections have been previously described to have ...

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 ocular toxoplasmosis is an infection in the eye caused by the parasite, toxoplasm a gondii. toxoplasmosis is the most common cause of eye inflammation in the world. toxoplamosis can be acquired or present at birth (congenital), having crossed the placenta from a newly infected mother to her fetus. most humans acquire toxoplasmosis by eating raw or undercooked meat, vegetables or milk products, or by coming into contact with infected cat litterbox or sandboxes. in humans, the infection usually causes no symptoms, and resolves without treatment in a few months. in individuals with compromised immune systems, toxoplasm a gondii can reactivate to cause disease. reactivation of a congenital infection was traditionally thought to be the most common cause of ocular toxoplasmosis, but an acquired infection is now considered to be more common. a toxoplasmosis infection that affects the eye usually attacks the retina and initially resolves without symptoms. however, the inactive ...
The protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) is an important zoonotic pathogen, which has the ability to infect all warm blooded mammals including humans, with approximately one third of the human population predicted to be infected. Transmission of the parasite to the foetus during pregnancy can result in miscarriage, however, a child infected during pregnancy may go on to develop clinical symptoms such as retinochoroiditis (ocular toxoplasmosis), hydrocephalus or learning difficulties in later life. Post-natally acquired infection in humans is generally asymptomatic, however, individuals who are immunocompromised may develop ocular toxoplasmosis or toxoplasmic encephalitis. T. gondii type II is reported to be the predominant genotype in Europe and the United States, but currently very little information exists about the prevalence and genotypes present within Great Britain. Consumption of T. gondii tissue cysts from raw or undercooked meat is a main source of infection for humans, with ...
We report here the results of our experience with the use of PCR for the identification of T. gondii in blood and aqueous humor samples from patients with and without ocular toxoplasmosis. Currently, the clinical diagnosis of ocular toxoplasmosis is based on the observation of a necrotizing lesion on the fundus, response to treatment, and serologic determination. However, in cases of atypical retinitis or when the fundus is hidden by vitreal inflammation, establishment of a diagnosis by ophthalmological examination alone can be difficult. In such cases the aqueous humor analysis may be used as a diagnostic tool for confirmation of ocular toxoplasmosis. Determination of intraocular production of antitoxoplasmic antibodies has been performed previously, but the results obtained had erratic values (2, 21). PCR has mostly been used to detect T. gondii in different biological samples (4, 9, 12, 14,19). Aqueous humor samples from patients with ocular toxoplasmosis have also been used with the PCR ...

Trichinella spiralis and Toxoplasma gondii are well known zoonoses which can pass from pigs to humans by consumption of raw or undercooked infected pork. In humans, most cases of T. gondii and T. spiralis infections go undetected; however, some cases can lead to mild disease. Other cases of trichinellosis can be very severe and may lead to myocarditis, encephalitis or pneumonia. Post natal acquired toxoplasmosis can incidentally lead to encephalitis and necrotizing retinochoroiditis, while congenital transmitted toxoplasmosis can lead to mental retardation, convulsions, spasticity, cerebral palsy, deafness and severely impaired vision in the offspring. In rare occasions, both these infections can lead to death.. These days, in Europe, trichinellosis is rarely reported in association with the consumption of pork from conventionally raised pigs [1]. An EU regulation [2] directs inspection of T. spiralis in each pig carcass at slaughter by direct parasitological methods. This regulation also states ...

The white dot syndromes are a group of inflammatory chorioretinopathies of unknown etiology which have in common a unique and characteristic appearance of multiple yellow-white lesions affecting multiple layers of the retina, retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), choriocapillaris, and the choroid. They also have overlapping clinical features. We discuss acute retinal pigment epitheliopathy, multiple evanescent white dot syndrome, acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy, multifocal choroiditis and panuveitis, acute zonal occult outer retinopathy, birdshot chorioretinopathy, and serpiginous choroidopathy. Some of these diseases are associated with a viral prodrome suggesting a possible viral/infectious etiology, while others are associated with a number of systemic processes suggesting an autoimmune etiology. We also review the presentation, evaluation/diagnosis, and treatment of these entities as well as the prognosis. Where applicable we discuss recent advancements in diagnosing and
Poster 4 Salim Ben Yahia. Advantages: To report clinical findings and outcome of an atypical case of Coats disease in an adult patient.. Methods: A 48-year-old female underwent ocular examination including dilated fundus examination, fluorescein angiography, and optical coherence tomography.. Effectiveness / Safety: The patient presented with decreased vision in her left eye. Fundus examination revealed multiple macroaneurysms in the posterior pole superior to the macula associated with hard exudates. In addition to macroaneurysms, fluorescein angiography showed numerous microaneurysms and telangiectatic vessels with fluorescein leakage on macular area. Optical coherence tomography revealed macular edema and serous retinal detachment of the macula. The patient was treated by transpupillary thermotherapy, with spots applied to the macroaneurysms, leading to an improvement of visual acuity and partial resolution of macular edema and serous retinal detachment on optical coherence tomography three ...
This study analyzed the synthesis of Interferon gamma (IFN-γ), Tumor Necrosis Factor alpha (TNF-α), and Interleukin 10 (IL-10) in chronically infected patients which developed the symptomatic disease as cerebral or ocular toxoplasmosis. Blood from 61 individuals were divided into four groups: Cerebral toxoplasmosis/AIDS patients (CT/AIDS group) (n = 15), ocular toxoplasmosis patients (OT group) (n = 23), chronic toxoplasmosis individuals (CHR group) (n = 13) and healthy individuals (HI group) (n = 10). OT, CHR, and HI groups were human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) seronegative. The diagnosis was made by laboratorial (PCR and ELISA) and clinical subjects. For cytokine determination, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) of each patient were isolated and stimulated in vitro with T. gondii antigen. IFN-γ, TNF-α, and IL-10 activities were determined by ELISA. Patients from CT/AIDS and OT groups had low levels of IFN-γ when were compared with those from CHR group. These data suggest the low ...

Toxoplasmosis is a disease caused by a microscopic parasite called Toxoplasma gondii. It is not a new disease, having first been discovered in 1908. Since its discovery, Toxoplasmosis has been found in virtually all warm-blooded animals including most pets, livestock and people. Nearly one-third of all adults in the U.S. and in Europe have antibodies in Toxoplasma, which means they have been exposed to the parasite

Congenital toxoplasmosis continues to be a public health threat. Even existing guidelines, publicly known, its implementation and lack of appropriate interpretation of serological tests in pregnancy is often observed. This leds to failure in opportunities for positive and known interventions to decrease the fetal risk due to Toxoplasma gondii infection. We reported herein a case series, with variable neurological and systemic compromise (respiratory distress, hepatosplenomegaly, enterocolitis, brain calcifications, thrombocytopenia, ascites, shock), even fatal, calling for awareness about the fact that despite the Zika epidemics in 2015-2016 in Brazil, Colombia and other countries, precisely toxoplasmosis, is a differential diagnosis still prevalent in these territories, that can leds to severe consequences, with neurological disability and risk of ocular damage, even lately ...
Symptomatic forms of toxoplasmosis are a serious public health problem and occur in around 10-20% of the infected people. Aiming to improve the molecular diagnosis of symptomatic toxoplasmosis in Brazilian patients, this study evaluated the performance of real time PCR testing two primer sets (B1 and REP-529) in detecting Toxoplasma gondii DNA. The methodology was assayed in 807 clinical samples with known clinical diagnosis, ELISA, and conventional PCR results in a 9-year period. All samples were from patients with clinical suspicion of several features of toxoplasmosis. According to the minimum detection limit curve (in CT), REP-529 had greater sensitivity to detect T. gondii DNA than B1. Both primer sets were retrospectively evaluated using 515 DNA from different clinical samples. The 122 patients without toxoplasmosis provided high specificity (REP-529, 99.2% and B1, 100%). From the 393 samples with positive ELISA, 146 had clinical diagnosis of toxoplasmosis and positive conventional PCR. ...

Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic infection that may cause flu-like symptoms. The organism that causes toxoplasmosis - Toxoplasma gondii - is one of the worlds most common parasites. Anyone can become infected with toxoplasmosis. The parasite is found throughout the world. Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) is a single-celled parasitic organism that can infect most animals and birds. But because it reproduces sexually only in cats, wild and domestic felines are the parasites ultimate host.. Most people affected never develop signs and symptoms. But for infants born to infected mothers and for people with compromised immune systems, toxoplasmosis can cause extremely serious complications.. If youre generally healthy, you probably wont need any treatment for toxoplasmosis. If youre pregnant or have lowered immunity, certain medications can help reduce the infections severity. The best approach, though, is prevention.. Continue reading Toxoplasmosis →. ...
DISCUSSION. In our published study (Jamieson et al. 2008) we examined the specific genetic hypothesis that polymorphisms in two genes known to be associated with ocular disorders, ABCA4 and COL2A1, are associated with eye disease caused by congenital toxoplasmosis. These associations were replicated across two independently ascertained cohorts, providing further confidence in this result. How these findings are related to the direct functional roles of ABCA4 and COL2A1 are discussed in more detail in the original paper. The observation that both loci were influenced by epigenetic modification of gene expression was also novel and exciting. The study provided new insight into processes that occur in early in embryonic development when it is not easy to determine what is happening when the fetus is first infected with a parasite such as T. gondii. The specific genetic associations observed have seeded follow-up studies to address how the parasite triggers the development of ocular disease during ...
