Inflammation of the choroid.
Tuberculous infection of the eye, primarily the iris, ciliary body, and choroid.
Inflammation in which both the anterior and posterior segments of the uvea are involved and a specific focus is not apparent. It is often severe and extensive and a serious threat to vision. Causes include systemic diseases such as tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, and syphilis, as well as malignancies. The intermediate segment of the eye is not involved.
Visualization of a vascular system after intravenous injection of a fluorescein solution. The images may be photographed or televised. It is used especially in studying the retinal and uveal vasculature.
Infection resulting from inhalation or ingestion of spores of the fungus of the genus HISTOPLASMA, species H. capsulatum. It is worldwide in distribution and particularly common in the midwestern United States. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Inflammation of the choroid in which the sensory retina becomes edematous and opaque. The inflammatory cells and exudate may burst through the sensory retina to cloud the vitreous body.
The thin, highly vascular membrane covering most of the posterior of the eye between the RETINA and SCLERA.
A glucocorticoid given, as the free alcohol or in esterified form, orally, intramuscularly, by local injection, by inhalation, or applied topically in the management of various disorders in which corticosteroids are indicated. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p739)
The concave interior of the eye, consisting of the retina, the choroid, the sclera, the optic disk, and blood vessels, seen by means of the ophthalmoscope. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
The interactions between physician and patient.
Individuals licensed to practice medicine.
An individual's objective and insightful awareness of the feelings and behavior of another person. It should be distinguished from sympathy, which is usually nonobjective and noncritical. It includes caring, which is the demonstration of an awareness of and a concern for the good of others. (From Bioethics Thesaurus, 1992)
Syphilis acquired in utero and manifested by any of several characteristic tooth (Hutchinson's teeth) or bone malformations and by active mucocutaneous syphilis at birth or shortly thereafter. Ocular and neurologic changes may also occur.
A contagious venereal disease caused by the spirochete TREPONEMA PALLIDUM.
Serologic tests for syphilis.
Twelve pairs of nerves that carry general afferent, visceral afferent, special afferent, somatic efferent, and autonomic efferent fibers.
A chronic inflammatory process that affects the AORTA and its primary branches, such as the brachiocephalic artery (BRACHIOCEPHALIC TRUNK) and CAROTID ARTERIES. It results in progressive arterial stenosis, occlusion, and aneurysm formation. The pulse in the arm is hard to detect. Patients with aortitis syndrome often exhibit retinopathy.
The instillation or other administration of drugs into the bladder, usually to treat local disease, including neoplasms.
Pathological conditions in the DUODENUM region of the small intestine (INTESTINE, SMALL).
An abnormal anatomical passage between the INTESTINE, and another segment of the intestine or other organs. External intestinal fistula is connected to the SKIN (enterocutaneous fistula). Internal intestinal fistula can be connected to a number of organs, such as STOMACH (gastrocolic fistula), the BILIARY TRACT (cholecystoduodenal fistula), or the URINARY BLADDER of the URINARY TRACT (colovesical fistula). Risk factors include inflammatory processes, cancer, radiation treatment, and surgical misadventures (MEDICAL ERRORS).
An abnormal passage between two or more BLOOD VESSELS, between ARTERIES; VEINS; or between an artery and a vein.

Tumors or cancer of the URINARY BLADDER.
A pathological process consisting of the formation of new blood vessels in the CHOROID.
Disorders of the choroid including hereditary choroidal diseases, neoplasms, and other abnormalities of the vascular layer of the uvea.

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)

Our patients had well-delineated whitish plaquelike lesions involving the macula and sparing the peripapillary areas of both eyes. In contrast to serpiginous choroiditis, VA remained good ...
PURPOSE: Choroidal neovascularization (CNV) associated with punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) is a rare clinical entity, yet still a challenge for medical treatment. A case of a young myopic woman developing CNV secondary to unilateral PIC is presented. Clinical morphology, diagnostic procedure and follow-up are reported. CASE REPORT: A 29-year-old woman presented with multiple yellowish dots at the posterior pole. No other signs of inflammation could be seen. Angiography with fluorescein yielded hyperfluorescent signals in the affected areas with a diffuse leak, and SD-OCT showed a slightly elevated retinal pigment epithelial layer, consistent with the diagnosis of PIC ...
Human papilloma virus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the USA with 6.2 million new cases diagnosed annually.1 The majority of infections are asymptomatic, but high-risk HPV types act as a carcinogen in the development of cervical and anogenital cancers.2 In June 2006, the Food and Drug Administration licensed a quadrivalent HPV vaccine (GARDASIL, Merck, Whitehouse Station, New Jersey) for females aged 9 to 26 years. To our knowledge there are no reports of HPV-related intraocular inflammation and no reports of quadrivalent HPV vaccine-related ocular inflammation. We report a case of ampiginous choroiditis following the administration of the quadrivalent HPV vaccine. ...
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.

Background: Multifocal choroiditis with panuveitis is a rare disease. The educational merit of this case presentation results from the good documentation and the impressive ocular fundus pictures. Case presentation: We illustrate the 3-year course of disease in a 22-year-old myopic white woman with multifocal choroiditis with panuveitis and secondary choroidal neovascularization. The activity of the disease was evaluated clinically by optical coherence tomography and fluorescein angiography. Choroidal neovascularization was treated by intravitreal bevacizumab (2.5 mg/0.1 ml). Our patient lacked systemic therapy for the first 11 months because of noncompliance. Conclusions: The case is remarkable as the delayed onset of peripheral lesions and the additional existence of high myopia made diagnosis difficult. In addition, it demonstrates that full outbreak of disease with multiple central and peripheral fundus lesions and secondary choroidal neovascularization can develop without systemic treatment ...

Results Thirty-two eyes of 20 patients were affected. Eight (20%) eyes revealed typical punctate lesions, while 24 (60%) eyes had confirmed CNV on SD-OCT and FA in addition to punctate lesions. Of these 24 eyes with CNV, a reoccurrence of active CNV was detected in 5 (21%) eyes, a residual fluid in 3 (13%) eyes, while 16 (67%) eyes were defined as being stable. On OCTA, CNV was classified as having lacy wheel, pruned large-trunk and dead tree aspect vessel shapes with or without areas of non-perfusion. The disease activity was dependent on several predictors in the regression analysis such as intraretinal fluid (p=0.0014), CNV type (p=0.0199), leakage (p,0.0001) and hypoperfusion/non-perfusion (p,0.0001) on OCTA. ...
Uveitis (iritis, cyclitis, choroiditis, iridocyclitis, chorioretinitis, panuveitis) refers to inflammation of the uvea, the collection of vascular structures including iris, ciliary body and choroid that form the middle, pigmented layer of the eye. Because uveal tissues contain many blood vessels, they are susceptible to inflammation from a variety of eye disorders. The definition of uveitis has been broadened to include inflammation of any internal eye structure, including the retina. If the inflammation involves only one or two structures of the eye, a more specific name is given (iritis, cyclitis, choroiditis, iridocyclitis, chorioretinitis). Inflammation of the entire eye is called panuveitis.. Uveitis is not a single disease. Inflammation in the eye may result from many different disease processes including infections, viruses, fungi, parasites, bacteria and other infectious agents. Uveitis may be a manifestation of various systemic disorders, including sarcoidosis, some arthritis syndromes ...
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 ...
Vitrectomy. Surgery to remove some of the vitreous in your eye (vitrectomy) may be necessary to manage the condition.. Surgery that implants a device into the eye to provide a slow and sustained release of a medication. For people with difficult-to-treat posterior uveitis, a device thats implanted in the eye may be an option. This device slowly releases corticosteroid medication into the eye for two to three years. Possible side effects of this treatment include cataracts and glaucoma.. The speed of your recovery depends in part on the type of uveitis you have and the severity of your symptoms. Uveitis that affects the back of your eye (choroiditis) tends to heal more slowly than uveitis in the front of the eye (iritis). Severe inflammation takes longer to clear up than mild inflammation does.. Uveitis can return.

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 ...
Exposure to toxins or injury can also cause uveitis. In many cases, the cause is unknown.. Often the inflammation is limited to only part of the uvea. The most common form of uveitis involves inflammation of the iris, in the front part of the eye. In this case, the condition is called iritis. In most cases, it occurs 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 eye. It involves primarily the choroid. This is the layer of blood vessels and connective tissue in the middle layer of the eye. This type of uveitis is called choroiditis. If the retina is also involved, it is called chorioretinitis.. Another form of uveitis is pars planitis. Inflammation occurs in the area called the pars plana, which is located between the iris and the choroid. Pars planitis most often occurs in young men. It is generally not associated with any other disease. However, it may be linked to Crohn disease and ...
Alternative names: Iritis; Pars planitis; Choroiditis; Chorioretinitis; Anterior uveitis; Posterior uveitis; IridocyclitisDefinition: Uveitis is swelling and irritation of the uvea. The uvea is the middle layer of the eye. The uvea provides most of the blood supply to the retina.
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 →. ...
Bilateral macular hemorrhage is a rare ocular finding and to the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of such hemorrhages as a presentation of drug-induced anemia. We describe the case of a 14-year-old Caucasian boy who presented with a toxoplasmic retinochoroiditis and was treated with sulfadiazine and pyrimethamine. Three months later, he presented with a bilateral macular hemorrhage as a complication of a toxic induced anemia. Our patient presented with toxic anemia secondary to the treatment of a very common disease, ocular toxoplasmosis. Prophylactic use of folinic acid could prevent such complications but in many cases, it is not prescribed owing to its cost or is mistakenly substituted with folic acid, which does not present as a valid substitute.
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). Conclusions : ...

Panuveitis 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 ...
