Variations in acute multifocal histoplasmic choroiditis in the primate. (1/59)

Experimental histoplasmic choroiditis was produced in primates by intracarotid injections of living H. capsulatum organisms. The severity of the choroiditis varied with inoculum size, as well as with site of injection (common carotid vs. internal carotid artery). A reproducible model of histoplasmic choroiditis in primates was produced with an internal carotid injection of 5,000 to 10,000 organisms/lb. The clinical and histopathological course of this acute choroiditis over the first 30 days is presented.  (+info)

Pathogenetic studies of infection of the bovine fetus with bovine viral diarrhea virus. II. Ocular lesions. (2/59)

Twenty-three susceptible pregnant heifers were inoculated with bovine viral diarrhea virus at 150 +/- 1 days of gestation. Seven additional heifers were inoculated between 65 and 115 days of gestation. Acute ocular lesions were seen in fetuses taken 17-21 days after inoculation of the dams at 150 days. By the fourth week, the acute lesions were beginning to resolve, and in newborn animals focal to total retinal atrophy was seen. The acute lesions were characterized by a mild to moderate retinitis that resulted in various degrees of destruction of the different layers, mononuclear cuffing of inner retinal vessels, proliferation of pigment epithelium, and choroiditis. Residually there was an absence of cellular elements in the atrophied areas of the retina, frequently a loss of layering and various numbers of pigment-containing cells. Moderately severe acute inflammation was seen in the retina of the fetus taken at 22 days after inoculation of its dam at 95 days. Ocular lesions did not occur in the other fetuses taken from heifers inoculated at earlier stages of gestation.  (+info)

Macular serpiginous choroiditis. (3/59)

PURPOSE: To report a variant form of serpiginous choroiditis, that initially or predominantly involved the macular area. METHODS: Nine eyes of 6 patients with the macular form of serpiginous choroiditis were evaluated clinically and angiographically in a longitudinal fashion for a period of 12-36 months. The active stage and the recurrences were treated by oral and periocular cortico steroids; and two patients were supplemented with oral azathioprine. Most of these patients were referred to our center with varied diagnoses. RESULTS: In this group, 4 were male and 2 were female with an average age of 30.5 years. Three patients had bilateral macular lesions, two had typical serpiginous choroiditis in the fellow eye and the remaining one had unilateral macular involvement alone. The initial visual acuity was 6/60 or less in 60% eyes whereas the final visual acuity was 6/18 or better in 66% eyes. Angiographic findings were typical of serpiginous choroiditis characterised by early hypofluorescence followed by leakage and staining of the borders and the lesion itself without any evidence of choroidal ischaemia or retinal vascular abnormalities. CONCLUSION: The macular variant of serpiginous choroiditis can mimic many other macular pathologic lesions, thus posing a diagnostic dilemma. Because of its relentless destructive course, early diagnosis and prompt treatment is required to prevent sight-threatening complications.  (+info)

Visual loss in uveitis of childhood. (4/59)

AIMS: To investigate the manifestations and severity of uveitis in children and to identify the risk and specific causes of blindness in this population. METHODS: Retrospective study of data of 123 consecutive patients examined with active uveitis and the onset of ocular disease before the age of 16 years. Numerous variables were assessed including age and sex distribution, laboratory data, the presence of systemic diseases, onset and course of ocular inflammation, clinical features and complications, therapeutic strategies and their outcomes, final visual acuity, and characteristics associated with poor visual outcome. RESULTS: Systemic disease was observed in 36/123 patients (29%), with juvenile idiopathic arthritis being the most frequent (25/123, 20%). Toxoplasma retinochoroiditis was diagnosed in 12/23 patients with posterior uveitis (52%; 10% of all with uveitis). Severe intraocular inflammation required systemic drugs in 57 (46%) patients. Ocular complications were observed in 93 patients (76%), of which the most common was cataract (43/123, 35%). Intraocular surgery was required in 35 patients (28%; in total 75 procedures). Three patients (2%) became legally blind and an additional 20/121 (17%) had one legally blind eye caused by uveitis. The most frequent causes of blindness were chorioretinal scars in the macular area and glaucoma in contrast with cystoid macular oedema (CMO) in adults. CONCLUSIONS: Uveitis in childhood is a potentially blinding disease, in the majority of patients characterised by a chronic course and a high complication rate.  (+info)

Opportunistic intraocular infections in AIDS. (5/59)

In conclusion, this clinicopathologic study has shown that CMV ocular infection is present in about 16% of terminal AIDS patients. The treatment of CMV retinitis reduces the number of CMV-infected nonocular organs and may also lessen the severity and control the spread of concurrent nonocular infection, both of which may prolong survival in AIDS patients. Other opportunistic infections, involving primarily the choroid, were also seen in a number of patients, some of whom had concurrent intraocular infections with CMV and P carinii, M avium-intracellulare, C neoformans. In addition, all of these choroidal infections were components of disseminated infection, underscoring the increasingly important role of the ophthalmologist in the diagnosis and treatment of disseminated opportunistic infections in AIDS.  (+info)

Association of peripheral multifocal choroiditis with sarcoidosis: a study of thirty-seven patients. (7/59)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the clinical spectrum of peripheral multifocal choroiditis (PMC) and its association with sarcoidosis. METHODS: Thirty-seven patients examined between November 1997 and November 2001 who met all diagnostic criteria for PMC were included in this retrospective study. Patients were assessed for the following signs of sarcoidosis: typical changes on chest radiography or computed tomography; predominantly CD4 lymphocytosis in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid; elevated serum angiotensin-converting enzyme levels; elevated gallium uptake; and noncaseating granuloma on biopsy. RESULTS: Most of the patients were female (30 of 37; 81%) and white (30 of 37; 81%). Mean +/- SD age at onset was 57.5 +/- 18.7 years. Seven (19%) of the 37 patients had biopsy-proven sarcoidosis and 18 patients (49%) with presumed sarcoidosis met at least 2 of the above-mentioned criteria for sarcoidosis but had normal biopsy results. Twelve patients (32%) had an indeterminate diagnosis. Patients with presumed sarcoidosis did not differ from those with proven sarcoidosis as regards the above-mentioned criteria, except for noncaseating granuloma, implying that more than two-thirds of patients (predominantly whites) had underlying sarcoidosis. Most patients with positive gallium scintigraphy had increased mediastinal uptake, as described in sarcoidosis. Patients with underlying sarcoidosis had more severe visual impairment due to cystoid macular edema (CME). Weekly methotrexate (0.3 mg/kg) seemed to control CME. CONCLUSION: White patients with PMC should be considered to have sarcoidosis. The identification of sarcoidosis in patients with severe ocular disease can help with therapeutic choices.  (+info)

Immunopathology of chronic experimental histoplasmic choroiditis in the primate. (8/59)

A nonhuman primate model of ocular histoplasmosis was developed that enabled the authors to define the choroidal cellular immunopathology of both the acute and chronic phases of experimental histoplasmic choroiditis. Anti-human monoclonal antibodies were used to identify the inflammatory cell subsets and to calculate their relative percentages in the choroidal inflammatory lesions. Comparison of the acute (less than or equal to 65 days) and chronic (greater than or equal to 1 yr) phases suggested possible variations in the evolution of these lesions, resulting in the development of immunopathologically distinct chronic lesions. In this model, these late lesions could be differentiated by the presence or absence of dense lymphocytic foci, comprised predominantly of mature B-lymphocytes, located within the more diffuse inflammatory cell background. The chronic lesions containing these B-cell foci had significantly higher percentages of both mature B-cells (P less than 0.0001) and helper-inducer T-cells (P less than 0.05) than did the chronic lesions without B-cell foci. The increase in helper-inducer T-cells in the chronic lesions with B-cell foci resulted in a higher mean helper-suppressor T-cell ratio (mu = 0.60) than that seen in lesions lacking foci (mu = 0.33). These findings suggest that, even in the same eye, individual chronic histoplasmic choroidal lesions, which clinically resemble "histo spots" in humans, may have different immunopotentials.  (+info)

Intravesical instillation of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is the treatment of choice for superficial bladder carcinoma. Complications of BCG therapy include local infections and disseminated BCG infection with multiple endorgan complications. We report a case of disseminated, post-treatment BCG infection that initially presented with granulomatous hepatitis and choroiditis. After successful anti-mycobacterial therapy and resolution of the hepatic and ocular abnormalities, the patient developed an acute upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage from an aortoduodenal fistula that required emergency surgery. The resection specimen revealed multifocal, non-caseating granulomas, indicating mycobacterial involvement. This case highlights the varied end organ complications of disseminated BCG infection, and the need for vigilance even in immuno-competent patients with a history of intravesical BCG treatment.

This case report demonstrates both RT and N-PCR positivity in a case of MSC, establishing tuberculous etiology conclusively. It justifies the use of ATT in MSC patients with a PCR-confirmed MTb report. Under ATT cover, the patients RE healed better than the LE with fewer chorioretinal scars and a better visual acuity (20/125 versus CFCF). Not only is ATT the definitive and specific treatment in these cases, but it also prevents recurrence of uveitic attacks [7].. RT-PCR can detect, amplify, and quantify the bacillary load in real time thus giving an idea about the disease severity. Serial monitoring of RT-PCR after starting treatment may show reduced number of DNA copies, thus indicating a beneficial response to therapy. In this case, however, due to ethical, logistical, and lack of patients consent, we could not repeat RT-PCR during the follow-up visits. Hence, we could not correlate RT-PCR with disease severity or treatment response to ATT. Properly designed prospective studies may ...
Environmental risk factors for uveal melanomas (cancer of the iris, ciliary body and choroid) have not been identified. In order to search for these, we examined the correlation of age-adjusted eye cancer incidence rates, a surrogate for uveal melanoma rates, in U.S. states with group level geographic and demographic factors using multivariate linear regression. Incidence rates for eye cancer were inversely correlated with the percent of the population receiving fluoridated water; i.e., higher rates were found in states with lower prevalences of fluoridation (P = 0.01). Fluoride is known to inhibit the growth of microbial agents that cause choroiditis and choroidal lesions in animals. We speculate that fluoridation protects against choroidal melanoma by inhibiting microbial agents that cause choroiditis and/or choroidal lesions in humans. ...
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

The progressive nature of these conditions causes most patients to gradually lose their vision until many of them are left blinded. It must be considered that not only is the diagnosis most patients not easy, especially in the early stages of the disease, but that the identification of faster diagnosis methods would lead to the correct treatment sooner, avoiding in this manner the increasing loss of visual acuity. Without a doubt, discovering the cause of each of these retinopathies would bring new hope of their treatments. Three years ago, with the help and financial support of ONCE, a research team led by Luis Carrasco professor of microbiology at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, noticed that a patient suffering form AZOOR was also infected by a type of yeast called Candida famata. In collaboration with the Clínica Barraquer, these studies have been extended to other patients with AZOOR or with Serpiginous choroiditis.. In January this year, information about the fungal infection in these ...

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 ...
Our series appears to demonstrate that combination PDT with intravitreal triamcinolone and/or systemic immunosuppression achieved angiographic closure of the neovascular complex in all patients with concomitant improvement of vision in the majority (83%) at latest follow up. This compares favourably with the natural history of CNV in younger patients with POHS1 and PIC.2. Until recently, treatment options for inflammatory CNV were limited to observation, argon laser photocoagulation, corticosteroids, and surgical removal. Argon laser photocoagulation of subfoveal CNV is unacceptable owing to the ensuing immediate profound iatrogenic visual loss and the role of corticosteroids alone is not definitive. Flaxel et al7 demonstrated stabilisation or improvement of vision in 10 of 12 eyes with inflammatory CNV secondary to PIC or multifocal inner choroiditis following steroid therapy alone. Stabilisation of vision at 3 months has also been achieved from the use of steroids for CNV in a series of 18 ...
Uveitis is a provocative methodology including the center of the three layers in the eye. To comprehend uveitis it is vital to know the fundamental life structures of the eye. The external layer encasing the eye is made out of the acceptable cornea and the white sclera. The deepest layer is the nerve layer or the retina. The center layer is the uveal tract, which is rich in veins. It is made out of the iris in the front some piece of the eye, the ciliary body, which generates the liquid (fluid diversion) inside the eye, and the choroid which sustains the retina in the once again of the eye. Due to its rich blood supply, the uveal tract is a common focus for infections beginning in different parts of the body. At the point when aggravation strike particular portions of the uveal tract, the sickness is further delegated iritis (irritation of the iris), cyclitis (irritation of the ciliary body) or choroiditis (aggravation of the choroid), contingent upon the influenced structure. In the event that ...

The recent development of photodynamic therapy (PDT) for the treatment of subfoveal choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) has provoked considerable interest amongst UK ophthalmologists, patients, hospital managers, public health physicians and the media. The recent publication of the Treatment of Age-related Macular Degeneration (TAP) report1 and the further data expected soon from this and other randomised clinical trials is likely to have a major impact on service provision in the UK. The vast majority of cases of subfoveal CNV are caused by age-related macular degeneration (AMD) but other causes include pathological myopia, angioid streaks and punctate inner choroidopathy, especially in younger patients. Until very recently confluent argon laser photocoagulation has been the only treatment modality of proven clinical efficacy but after initial enthusiasm its role has become restricted to the treatment of eyes with extrafoveal CNV. In addition to PDT other therapeutic options for subfoveal CNV ...
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 ...
In VKH disease, detection of choroiditis is still a challenge. Thus, newer parameters to detect posterior segment inflammation and to assist the treatment process are needed. Herein, we describe the choroidal bulging, a transient finding identified on EDI-OCT in patients with VKH disease in the non-acute uveitic stage. The choroidal bulging is characterized by a localized thickening of the choroidal compartment with consequent bulging of the RPE/Bruch reflective complex anteriorly, without an associated retinal thickening or any obvious nearby retinal lesion to justify this finding. Signs of well-known ongoing disease-related inflammation/activity were concomitantly observed in all four eyes presenting choroidal bulging, and fluctuation of this inflammatory signs was followed by changes in the choroidal bulging.. Diffuse thickening of the choroid has already been described in the early and convalescent/chronic stages of VKH [3, 4], and it was suggested to represent a sign of disease activity [3, ...
Acute Retinal Necrosis (ARN), is a medical inflammatory condition of the eye. The condition presents itself as a necrotizing retinitis. The inflammation onset is due to certain herpes viruses, Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV), Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2) and Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV). People with the condition usually display redness of the eye, white or off-white colored patches that are patches of retinal necrosis. ARN can progress into other conditions such as uveitis, detachment of the retina, and ultimately can lead to blindness. The disease was first characterized in 1971, in Japan. Akira Urayama and his colleagues had six patients whose cases showed signs of acute necrotizing retinitis, retinal arertitis, choroiditis, and late-onset retinal detachment. The combination of the conditions was given the name acute retinal necrosis. The first reports of ARN came about in 1971. It is unclear whether it was previously just reported as something else. Urayama and his colleagues reported the ...

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 →. ...
Ocular histoplasmosis is a rare complication of a common fungal infection. In its most severe form, it leads to abnormal blood vessel growth that damages the retina, causing vision loss.
13 patients (24 eyes) with BRC (5M/8F) were included in the study. The mean age at the moment of ChT measurement was 61.4 ± 11.2 years. Mean disease duration was 13.7 ± 3.7 years. The HLA-A29 antigen was positive in all patients. There were no significant differences in age, sex, disease duration, and refractive error between the two groups. A significant difference in ChT was observed between adequately treated (13 eyes) and undertreated patients (11 eyes) (288.3 ± 76.9 µm vs 161.4 ± 39.2 µm; P≤0.0001, Mann-Whitney U test). In the group with insufficient therapy, 10 of 11 eyes presented typical fundus BRC lesions while only 2 of 13 eyes presented the same typical BRC lesions in the treated group (P≤0.0006, two-tailed F-test).

... is a serious disease that causes inflammation of the eye. "Uveitis" refers to general inflammation of a portion of the eye, usually just the front of the eye. In panuveitis, however, both the front and the back of the eye are affected. The affected region is known as the uveal tract, which is composed of the iris, the choroid, and the ciliary body. The iris is the colored back of your eye that controls the size of your pupil. The choroid is the inner lining of the eye that contains blood vessels. The ciliary body produces fluid to keep your eye moist. All of these structures are important for vision, and inflammation of these components can cause visual problems. The cause of panuveitis is generally unknown, but there are some links to other diseases such as syphilis, sarcoidosis, toxoplasmosis, and tuberculosis. Some other possible causes may include infections, tumors, bruises, and toxins in the eyes. The main symptoms of panuveitis are eye pain, blurred vision, vision loss, light ...
Photo 58. Generalised life cycle.. The figure is based on the life cycle of P. vivax and P. ovale. Sporozoites (2) injected by the mosquito enter liver parenchyma cells where they grow into the first generation of pre-erythrocytic schizonts (3). These give rise to cryptozoites which invade red blood cells, to develop into the asexual erythrocytic cycle (4). Some sporozoites in the hepatocytes stay dormant (H = hypnozoite) to mature after an interval of weeks or months into secondary exo-erythrocytic schizonts (3a, 3b). The successive waves of cryptozoites emerging from these give rise to relapse infections in the blood after months or years. Some blood stages mature to form sexual forms, the macro- and microgamétocytes (5). These enter the mosquito where the males exflagellate to fertilise the females (6). The ookinete thus produced forms oocysts on the outside of the midgut (7). Sporozoites (8 & 9) develop in the oocysts. The sporozoites enter the mosquito salivary glands (2) where they are ...

The syndrome described here demonstrates an ophthalmic feature similar to that seen in patients suffering from presumed ocular histoplasmosis in the USA. We report 81 patients who fulfilled the clinical criteria for presumed ocular histoplasmosis, including 51 patients exhibiting the classic clinical picture which was identical to the entity as described in the USA. Thirty patients had an incomplete form, as they did not show numerous histospots. Nevertheless, there are some differences in clinical features when comparing our patients with those described in the USA.. Our patients do not come from an area endemic for histoplasmosis, which is usually the case for diagnosis in the USA.136 In seven patients, the results of histoplasmin skin testing were available, and it was negative in all patients. Diagnosis by histoplasmin skin testing has been abandoned since it was suggested that there was a possibility of flare up of maculopathy in 7%.37 There is a predominance of females in our group, which ...

Introduction: Immunosuppressive treatment of patients with idiopathic membranous nephropathy (IMN) is debated due to its possible side effects. The 2012 KDIGO guidelines suggest alkylating agents as first choice therapy. The aim of the study is to retrospectively evaluate the induction and maintenance of clinical remission in patients with histological diagnosis of IMN undergoing steroid and/or cyclosporine therapy at the Nephrology Unit of the SantAndrea Hospital in Rome.. Materials and methods: Therapy A (conservative) was reserved to low-risk patients. 8 medium and high risk patients were induced by Therapy B (Prednisone 1 mg / kg ≤12-16 weeks plus 8 weeks withdrawal); 6 patients by Therapy C (Prednisone 1 mg /kg ≥20-24 weeks plus 8 week withdrawal) and, finally, 6 steroid-resistent patients by Therapy D (steroid withdrawal + cyclosporine 3-5 mg / kg for 2 years).. Results: Complete remission was observed in 37.5% of patients in Therapy B, in 83.3% of patients in Therapy C and in 66.6% ...

Spontaneous production of autoantibodies to the Sm nuclear Ag is highly specific for SLE and the SLE-prone MRL mouse strains. Our previous studies have demonstrated that in vitro anti-Sm production in MRL/1pr mice requires the presence of T cells. In the present investigation, these T cells were found to express the L3T4+/Lyt-2- phenotype, unlike the aberrant L3T4-/Lyt-2-"double negative" 1pr T cells, and to utilize the L3T4 determinant in generating help for the anti-Sm response. The generation of anti-Sm did not require the presence of Sm-specific Th cells, as help could also be provided by T cells activated to an irrelevant Ag, or by nonspecific factors such as IL-2. There was no evidence for suppressor cell regulation of anti-Sm, even in animals negative for this specificity. These studies indicate that ongoing production of anti-Sm in MRL/1pr mice is dependent on the presence of T cells with a normal mature surface phenotype, and that these cells act in part through the elaboration of ...

H. Capsulatum or its by-products produce a lymphocytic infiltration within the choroid. This results in the formation of granulomatous inflammatory masses that disrupt Bruchs membrane and the retinal pigment epithelium and compromise the outer layers of the retina. In most cases, the resulting peripheral choroidopathies are mild, producing only subtly observable clinical signs that heal without complications within a few weeks. Macular lesions possess serious ocular sequelae and progress through stages. Their presentation can lag behind the systemic infection by 30 years. Stress or immunocompromise increases the risk of macular involvement and POHS reactivation ...
Eight eyes from eight subjects with quiescent idiopathic panuveitis were evaluated. Qualitative analysis showed thinning the choroid, in particular Sattlers medium vessel layer. EDI OCTs showed a mean retina thickness of 406.4 +/- 63.2 mm, and mean choroidal thickness of 252.0 +/- 50.5 mm. The ratio of retinal:choroidal thickness in the total scanned area was strongly correlated with visual acuity (r=-0.862, p=0.006), as was retinal:choroidal intensity (r=0.946, p=0.0004). Total choroidal:Hallers layer thickness ratios were not significantly correlated with visual acuity in the whole scan area (r=0.587, p=0.126), but correlated in the foveal region (EDTRS area 9) (r=0.707, p=0.05). Total choroidal:Hallers layer intensity ratios were significantly correlated in both total scan area as well as in the fovea (r=0.874, p=0.004) (r=0.826, p=0.01).. ...
The physician can recommend anti-inflammatory drugs, such as a corticosteroid, to manage uveitis. This medicine can be prescribed as eyedrops. The physician could also order a corticosteroid by inoculation into the eye or by pill. For individuals with hard-to-treat posterior uveitis, there is a device that is implanted in the eye as one possibility. This device issues corticosteroid medicine gradually into the eye for about 2 ½ years. ...
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 ...

The sclera is the white of the eye. It is a fibrous covering that makes up much of the globe of the eye. The sclera protects the eyes inner parts.. Scleritis means that the sclera is inflamed. The inflammation is what makes the white of the eye look red, or sometimes purple.. Pain from scleritis is usually severe and is worse at night. The pain can spread to your face and jaw. Scleritis can make your eyes sensitive to light. It can also affect your vision. In more severe cases, it can lead to loss of vision.. Scleritis is often caused by another medical problem, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Sometimes an eye infection is the cause.. To find out if you have scleritis, your doctor checks your vision. He or she carefully examines your eyes. Your doctor also asks about other symptoms like joint pain or fevers. You may have tests and X-rays to look for medical problems that can cause scleritis. When scleritis is in the back of the eye, it can be harder to diagnose.. Treatment focuses on reducing the ...
