Epithelial hyperproliferation and transglutaminase 1 gene expression in Stevens-Johnson syndrome conjunctiva. (1/208)

In Stevens-Johnson syndrome, pathological keratinization of the ordinarily nonkeratinized corneal and conjunctival mucosal epithelia results in severe visual loss. We examined conjunctiva covering cornea in five eyes in the chronic cicatricial phase of Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Normal conjunctiva from five age-matched individuals was studied also. The number of epithelial cells in Stevens-Johnson syndrome conjunctiva that were immunoreactive with a monoclonal antibody, Ki-67, to a nuclear antigen found only in proliferating cells was greater than normal (93.8+/-19.8 cells above 100 basal cells versus 12.8+/-0.5 cells above 100 basal cells; P = 0.009). In addition, although clinical inflammation was mild, massive lymphocytic infiltration was seen in the substantia propria of conjunctiva covering cornea. In situ hybridization documented transglutaminase 1 (keratinocyte transglutaminase) mRNA in suprabasal cells of the abnormally thickened conjunctival epithelium in all Stevens-Johnson syndrome patients. In contrast, no message was detected in normal conjunctival or corneal epithelia. Transglutaminase 1 is expressed during the terminal differentiation of keratinocytes where it helps synthesize cornified cell envelopes. We speculate that in Stevens-Johnson syndrome, epithelial hyperproliferation, and transglutaminase 1 gene expression lead to the pathological keratinization of ocular surface mucosal epithelia.  (+info)

Ocular ochronosis in alkaptonuria patients carrying mutations in the homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase gene. (2/208)

AIMS: To assess the involvement of the recently identified human homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase gene (HGO) in alkaptonuria (AKU) in two unrelated patients with ochronosis of the conjunctiva, sclera, and cornea. METHODS: A mutation screen of the entire coding region of the HGO gene was performed using single stranded conformational analysis after polymerase chain reaction with oligonucleotide primers flanking all 14 exons of the HGO gene. Fragments showing aberrant mobility were directly sequenced. RESULTS: Two homozygous missense mutations, L25P and M368V, were identified, each of which leads to the replacement of a highly conserved amino acid in the HGO protein. CONCLUSIONS: The authors describe a novel mutation, L25P, in the German population and bring to 18 the total number of known HGO mutations.  (+info)

Combined effect of Interceed and 5-fluorouracil on delayed adjustable strabismus surgery. (3/208)

AIMS/BACKGROUND: To discover a more reliable method of performing delayed suture adjustment as a basis to investigate whether delayed adjustment actually provides more stable results. In order to prevent the formation of postoperative adhesions and delay the time of adjustment, an animal study was performed to determine the combined effect of physical barriers, Viscoat and Interceed, and a pharmacological agent, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). METHODS: 38 rabbit eyes were divided into three groups. After recession of the superior rectus muscle (SRM), 5-FU was applied beneath and over the SRM in group 5-FU. Group I-f had Interceed and 5-FU and group I-fv, Interceed, 5-FU, and Viscoat. Delayed adjustment was performed once on each SRM at 1, 2, and 3 weeks postoperatively. The possible length and the necessary force to adjust as well as the degree of adhesions were recorded. RESULTS: 5-FU delayed the adjustment for up to 1 week after surgery in three out of four eyes. Combined use of Interceed and 5-FU could delay the adjustment for up to 1 week after surgery in three out of five eyes. Addition of Viscoat could delay the adjustment for up to 1 week after surgery in four out of five eyes. Adjustment was possible on only one of four eyes thereafter. CONCLUSIONS: Combined use of Interceed, 5-FU, and Viscoat could delay the adjustment in rabbits until 1 week postoperatively.  (+info)

Transforming growth factor-beta1, -beta2, and -beta3 in vivo: effects on normal and mitomycin C-modulated conjunctival scarring. (4/208)

PURPOSE: To compare the effects of the three human isoforms of transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta in vivo using a mouse model of conjunctival scarring, both in normal eyes and after treatment with MMC, with a view to delineating the role of this growth factor in glaucoma filtration surgery. METHODS: Application of recombinant human TGF-beta was assessed in a prospective, randomized study of mouse conjunctival scarring, in which subconjunctival TGF-beta1, -beta2, and -beta3 (all 10(-9) M) were compared with control (phosphate-buffered saline [PBS] carrier) and mitomycin C (MMC; 0.4 mg/ml) treatment at 6 hours, and 1, 3, and 7 days after surgery (six eyes/treatment/time point). Effects of TGF-beta2 on eyes previously treated with MMC were also assessed. Histologic studies of enucleated eyes were performed to analyze development of the scarring response, extracellular matrix deposition, and the inflammatory cell profile. RESULTS: All three isoforms of TGF-beta behaved in a similar manner in vivo, being associated with a rapid-onset and exaggerated scarring response compared with control and MMC treatment. TGF-beta-treated eyes showed evidence of an earlier peak in inflammatory cell activity (P < 0.05) and increased collagen type III deposition (P < 0.05). TGF-beta2 treatment significantly stimulated scarring after MMC application (P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: TGF-beta1, -beta2, and -beta3 appear to have similar actions in vivo and stimulate the conjunctival scarring response. Application of TGF-beta2 modified the effects of MMC. All TGF-beta isoforms may be potent modulators of the conjunctival scarring response. These studies indicate that TGF-beta2 may naturally modify the antiscarring effects of antimetabolites such as MMC in glaucoma filtration surgery.  (+info)

Human anti-transforming growth factor-beta2 antibody: a new glaucoma anti-scarring agent. (5/208)

PURPOSE: Currently available anti-scarring regimens for glaucoma filtration surgery have potentially blinding complications and thus the need for alternative and safer agents. The effects of a new antibody to transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta2 on in vitro and in vivo conjunctival scarring and after glaucoma filtration surgery were investigated. METHODS: The activity of a novel recombinant monoclonal neutralizing antibody (mAb) to human TGF-2 (rhAnti-TGF-beta2 mAb) was studied in conjunctival fibroblast-mediated proliferation, migration, and collagen contraction. Its safety in subconjunctival administration was assessed in vivo, and, in a rabbit model of glaucoma filtration surgery, its effects on conjunctival scarring and filtration surgery outcome were investigated. RESULTS: The rhAnti-TGF-beta2 mAb effectively inhibited TGF-beta2-mediated conjunctival scarring activity in vitro, at 50% inhibitory concentrations (IC50) of less than 1 nM. It significantly improved glaucoma filtration surgery outcome in an animal model of aggressive conjunctival scarring compared with control (P = 0.0291) and was clinically safe, nontoxic, and well tolerated after subconjunctival administration. CONCLUSIONS: Subconjunctival rhAnti-TGF-beta2 mAb treatment significantly affects surgical outcome and effectively reduces conjunctival scarring both in vitro and in vivo. It appears safe for subconjunctival administration and when compared with mitomycin-C treatment histologically, much less destructive to local tissue. rhAnti-TGF-beta2 mAb may have potential as a new anti-scarring agent for use in glaucoma filtration surgery.  (+info)

Tear fluid gelatinase B activity correlates with IL-1alpha concentration and fluorescein clearance in ocular rosacea. (6/208)

PURPOSE: To correlate tear fluorescein clearance with interleukin-1alpha (IL-1alpha) concentration and gelatinase B (matrix metalloproteinase [MMP]-9) activity in the tear fluid of patients with ocular rosacea and normal control subjects. METHODS: Gelatinase activity was evaluated by gelatin zymography in tear fluid obtained from 13 patients with ocular rosacea (including 1 patient with recurrent epithelial erosion, 2 with recurrent peripheral corneal infiltrates and vascularization, and 2 patients with epithelial basement membrane dystrophy) and 13 normal subjects with normal aqueous tear production and no irritation symptoms. Tear fluorescein clearance was evaluated by measuring fluorescence in tear fluid collected from the inferior meniscus 15 minutes after instillation of 5 microl of 2% Na-fluorescein with a CytoFluor II fluorometer. Pro-MMP-9 and IL-1alpha concentrations in the tear fluid were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). RESULTS: Compared with normal control subjects, patients with ocular rosacea had a greater delay of tear fluorescein clearance (P < 0.001), a higher tear IL-1alpha concentration (P < 0.001), and a greater pro-gelatinase B (92 kDa) activity (P < 0.001) in their tear fluid. The 84-kDa active form of gelatinase B was observed in 46% of the rosacea tear samples and none of the controls. The zymographic results were confirmed by ELISA that showed a significantly greater concentration of pro-MMP-9 (92 kDa) in the tear fluid of rosacea patients than controls. Delayed tear clearance was correlated with elevated tear IL-1alpha concentration (p=0.67, P < 0.001) and increased tear gelatinase B activity (p=0.84, P < 0.001). Tear IL-1alpha concentration was correlated with tear gelatinase B activity (p=0.58, P < 0.002). CONCLUSIONS: Gelatinase B (MMP-9) activity is greater in patients with ocular rosacea than in normal eyes. The majority of this activity is due to 92-kDa proform of this enzyme. This activity is correlated with delayed tear clearance and tear fluid concentration of interleukin-1alpha, a proinflammatory cytokine that has been reported to stimulate gelatinase B production. Elevated gelatinase B activity in ocular rosacea may be involved in the pathogenesis of the irritation symptoms, recurrent epithelial erosions, vascularization, and epithelial basement membrane dystrophy that develops in the corneas of patients with this condition.  (+info)

Overexpression of MMP-1 and MMP-3 by cultured conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts. (7/208)

PURPOSE: To determine whether conjunctivochalasis, denoting redundant, loose, nonedematous inferior bulbar conjunctiva, is associated with increased expression and activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPS) over their tissue inhibitors (TIMPs). METHODS: Expression of transcripts and proteins of MMPs, TIMPs, and urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) by cultured normal human conjunctival and conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts was determined by Northern hybridization, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and Western blot analysis, respectively. Gelatin and casein zymography and quantitative collagenase activity assay were performed in the serum-free conditioned media. RESULTS: Compared with normal conjunctival fibroblasts from six subjects, conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts from eight patients showed markedly increased transcript expression of MMP-1 (5- to 32-fold) and MMP-3 (4 to 30-fold), whereas that of MMP-2, TIMP-1, TIMP-2, and uPA was similar between the two groups. Protein levels were increased in the serum-free conditioned media of conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts for MMP-1 (3.5- to 7.6-fold) and MMP-3 (2.3- to 13-fold), determined by ELISA and Western blot analysis. There was increased caseinolytic activity of MMP-3 and collagenolytic activity of MMP-1 (2.2-fold) by conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts, whereas no difference was noted between these two types of fibroblasts in the protein and gelatinolytic activity of MMP-2 or expression of TIMP-1 and TIMP-2 proteins, although that of TIMP-1 transcript was slightly higher in some conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts. No expression of MMP-9 was detected. CONCLUSIONS: Overexpression of MMP-1 and MMP-3 mRNA by conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts is correlated with their increased protein levels and proteolytic activities. Collectively, these data help explain how conjunctivochalasis manifests excessive degradation of the conjunctival matrix and Tenon's capsule.  (+info)

Key factors in the subjective and objective assessment of conjunctival erythema. (8/208)

PURPOSE: To establish objectively measurable characteristics of the conjunctival vasculature that correspond with the judgment of erythema by human observers. METHODS: Color images of bulbar conjunctiva from 21 subjects were digitally analyzed to extract the following variables characteristic of the scene: vessel width (W), number of vessels (V), proportion of area occupied by vessels (PA), relative redness both in vessels (RRV) and in the whole image (RRI), red-green difference both in vessels (RGV) and in the whole image (RGI), red-blue difference both in vessels (RBV) and in the whole image (RBI), and red hue value (RHV). These data were compared with subjective judgments by a panel of seven trained observers who independently rated erythema in the same images, using a 0 to 4 scale with decimal interpolation between grades. RESULTS: Correlation analysis indicated significant associations (P<0.05) between the mean response of the human observers and all the objective variables except RHV. Associations with the morphometric variables PA (R2 = 0.93) and V(R2 = 0.90) were markedly stronger than for the best colorimetric variable RBV (R2 = 0.62). CONCLUSIONS: Judgments of erythema made by human observers do not rely primarily on color but can be closely approximated by a univariate, linear model involving only the proportion of the scene occupied by vessels. Under the conditions of this study, grading of erythema by trained observers can be considered to constitute measurement to at least an interval level.  (+info)

All 18 patients treated for conjunctivochalasis had watery eyes. Of the 18 patients, nine (50.0%) had plerolacrima14 (tears filling the eyes but not running down the face), while seven (38.9%) had epiphora (tears running down the face), and two patients (11.1%) had both symptoms. In combination with conjunctivochalasis excision, nine patients (50.0%) underwent lid surgery, five (27.8%) underwent dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery, one (5.6%) underwent both lid surgery and DCR, and four (22.4%) underwent only conjunctivochalasis surgery.. Following DCR surgery, five of six patients had a positive Valsalva bubble test (VBT).15 Of the eight patients who underwent preoperative Schirmers testing, only one suggested the presence of ocular surface drying.. Following surgery, 12 patients (66.7%) were happy with their surgical result. Three patients (16.7%) were substantially improved (70% better). One patient (5.6%) was not significantly improved and, despite being offered further surgery, did not ...
Conjunctival chalasis, or conjunctivochalasis (Cch), is a commonly observed condition in our everyday patient care experiences. Because it is so common, and because a majority of patients are asymptomatic, optometrists seldom feel the need treat.
Abstract: : Purpose: Pharmacologic approaches using anti-angiogenesis agents may be helpful for the treatment of choroidal neovascularization. The delivery of drugs into the choroid and subretinal space may be safer and more effective using sustained-release implants placed in the subconjunctival space versus surgical implantation directly into the vitreous cavity. We investigated the ocular distribution of a lipophilic fluorescent compound, 5-hexadecanoylaminofluorescein (H-110, MW= 586), from a sustained-release device placed in the subconjunctival space to determine the feasibility of using this approach for drug delivery into the vitreou Methods: We used the lipophilic fluorescent compound to construct sustained-release matrix implants to produce slow rates of drug release for a prolonged period time. Three types of matrices were formed by combining the compound with either polyvinyl alcohol, hydropropyl cellulose (HPC), or silicone. The in vitro release rates of the three different implant ...

Subconjunctival hemorrhage, also known as subconjunctival haemorrhage and hyposphagma, is bleeding underneath the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva contains many small, fragile blood vessels that are easily ruptured or broken. When this happens, blood leaks into the space between the conjunctiva and sclera. Such a hemorrhage may be caused by a sudden or severe sneeze or cough, or due to high blood pressure or as a side effect of blood thinners such as aspirin or warfarin. It may also be caused by heavy lifting, vomiting, or even rubbing ones eyes too roughly. In other cases, it may result from being choked or from straining due to constipation. Also, it can result as a minor post-operative complication in eye surgeries such as LASIK. Whereas a bruise typically appears black or blue underneath the skin, a subconjunctival hemorrhage initially appears bright-red underneath the transparent conjunctiva. Later, the hemorrhage may spread and become green or yellow, like a bruise. Usually this disappears ...

It is likely that many of these patients may have had mild trauma eg eye rubbing, which has contributed to the bleed.. ...
What is that red spot on my eye? Many patients will report visualizing a bright red spot on the white part of their eye when they look in the mirror. Some patients state that family or friends noticed this problem and they were unaware of it. This is typically known as a subconjunctival hemorrhage.

A small sample of tissue (biopsy) is taken from the eyes and usually also the mouth. These biopsies are evaluated under a fluorescence microscope and tested for antibodies associated with MMP. Whilst biopsies from skin and mouth MMP lesions are less than 10% likely to give false negative results, unfortunately biopsies from the eye can give a false negative result in 30-50% of cases. So a positive result from the eye confirms the diagnosis, but a negative result from the eye does not necessarily mean that the diagnosis is not MMP. In a proportion of patients with negative biopsy results, treatment with immunosuppressive therapy (which suppresses an overactive immune system) in a similar manner to patients with positive biopsy results, may be necessary.. A blood test may also be used to detect the antibodies in the circulation, but they are detectable in less than 30% of ocular MMP patients.. If it is likely that you will require immunosuppressive medication (which suppresses an overactive immune ...
Three children with an unusual but clearly defined combination of clinical findings that appear to have been inherited in an autosomal recessive manner are described. All had developed laryngeal abnormalities, chronic skin ulceration, nail dystrophy, and conjunctival disease in infancy. In every case, dental enamel was hypoplastic and both skin and mucosal surfaces demonstrated increased susceptibility to trauma. Progression of disease occurred, to life threatening respiratory obstruction in two cases and to effective blindness and fatal respiratory obstruction in the third child. All of these children came from the Pakistani ethnic group. No medical treatment has halted progression of this disease but laser therapy has been partially successful in alleviating laryngeal manifestations. Ultrastructural and immunohistological examination of unaffected skin was undertaken in each child. No abnormality was found in the child with the mildest clinical disease. Both of the other children showed ...

Miosis is often accompanied by complaints of pain, dim vision, blurred vision, conjunctival injection, nausea, and occasionally vomiting. The pain may be sharp or dull in or around the eyeball, but more often is a dull ache in the frontal part of the head. Dim vision is due in part to the small pupil, and cholinergic mechanisms in the visual pathways also contribute. The complaint of blurred vision is less easily explained, as objective testing usually indicates an improvement in visual acuity because of the pin-hole effect. Conjunctival injection may be mild or severe, and occasionally subconjunctival hemorrhage is present. Nausea (and sometimes vomiting) are part of a generalized complaint of not feeling well. Miosis, pain, dim vision, and nausea can be relieved by topical homatropine or atropine in the eye ...

Ocular rosacea may be more common than widely believed, according to Dr. Guy Webster, professor of dermatology at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, who spoke at the recent American Academy of Dermatology annual meeting in San Francisco. Dr. Webster, whose practice is located near an eye hospital, said about half of his rosacea patients have eye symptoms. The ocular symptoms are often subtle, however, and many patients do not even know they have a problem. Its only after being treated that they realize rosacea had affected their eyes, he said.
Cough is one of the most common complaints encountered in every setting, however, complications associated with coughing have received relatively little attention. An exhaustive systematic review of the English literature revealed an exceedingly large and varied spectrum of cough-induced complications affecting many systems including upper airways, chest wall and thorax, abdominal wall, heart and aorta, central nervous system, eye, gastrointestinal tract, urogenital system, and emotional and psychological harm. Prospective studies and prevalence data are conspicuously missing. Reported cough-induced pathology ranges from rare (the majority) to common and from trivial (e.g. lightheadedness, subconjunctival hemorrhage) to severe and life-threatening (e.g. cervical artery dissection, rupture of a normal spleen). Other seemingly benign entities may mask a serious underlying pathology (e.g. cough headache, cough syncope). A substantial proportion of patients experience anxiety, insomnia and their ...

Chemosis is the swelling (or edema) of the conjunctiva. It is due to the oozing of exudate from abnormally permeable capillaries. In general, chemosis is a nonspecific sign of eye irritation. The outer surface covering appears to have fluid in it. The conjunctiva becomes swollen and gelatinous in appearance. Often, the eye area swells so much that the eyes become difficult or impossible to close fully.[1] Sometimes, it may also appear as if the eyeball has moved slightly backwards from the white part of the eye due to the fluid filled in the conjunctiva all over the eyes except the iris. The iris is not covered by this fluid and so it appears to be moved slightly inwards.. ...

The exact cause of pterygia is not well understood. They occur more often in people who spend a lot of time outdoors, especially in sunny climates. Long-term exposure to sunlight, especially to ultraviolet (UV) rays, and chronic eye irritation from dry, dusty conditions seem to play an important role. Dry eye also may contribute to pterygium.. When a pterygium becomes red and irritated, eyedrops or ointments can be used to help reduce the inflammation. If the pterygium grows rapidly or is large enough to threaten sight, it can be removed surgically.. Despite proper surgical removal, a pterygium may return, particularly in young people. Protecting the eyes from excessive ultraviolet light with proper sunglasses, avoiding dry, dusty conditions, and using artificial tears can also help.. A pinguecula is a yellowish patch or bump on the white of the eye, most often on the side closest to the nose. It is not a tumor but is an alteration of normal tissue resulting in a deposit of protein and fat. ...
Interferon therapy has been known to produce various responses, such as creating an antiviral effect, inhibiting cell proliferation, and modulating immunity. It has been used to treat various systemic disorders, including neoplastic disease and chronic hepatitis. The agent is also known to inhibit vascular endothelial cells and angiogenesis. Various adverse effects of interferon therapy have been reported. Interferon is also known to cause ocular toxicity such as retinopathy and subconjunctival hemorrhages.

Background: The Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are life-threatening adverse drug reactions characterized by massive epidermal necrosis. In the early stage, clinical presentations of SJS/TEN are very similar to those of ordinary drug-induced skin reactions (ODSRs); therefore, SJS/TEN is difficult to diagnose and the start of treatment is often delayed, resulting in high mortality rates. Other investigators (1) reported that granulysin is highly expressed in blisters of SJS/TEN and causes disseminated keratinocyte death. Because SJS/TEN progresses and spreads rapidly, the granulysin level should be increased in the serum of patients with active SJS/TEN if it is a key mediator of these diseases ...

Khaliah Shaw went to the doctor in 2014 seeking help for her depression. She was prescribed lamotrigine, an extended release medication most frequently used for patients with epilepsy and bipolar disorder. For the first two weeks, she had positive results. But then blisters began to appear all over her body. Her sweat glands began to melt, effectively liquefying from the inside out, and drastically changing her physical appearance. Since then, she has permanently lost her fingernails and is slowly losing her vision.. Shaw developed Stevens-Johnsons syndrome because the dosage of lamotrigine she was prescribed was too high. SJS is a rare and potentially life-threatening skin disorder with complications that can develop and progress quickly while causing permanent damage in patients. It is frequently caused by a reaction to medication or an incorrect dosage that goes unchecked by doctors and pharmacists.. Lamotrigine is not the only drug that has been recently linked to Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. ...

As in case of bloodshot eye signs, treatment for this condition is likewise based on the underlying cause. Allergies can be one of the factors and if you are detected with the very same, medications like antihistamines will be prescribed. If the reason is dry eyes, it can be countered with artificial tears. In case of subconjunctival hemorrhage, no treatment is recommended, provided, there is no infection or significant injury. So, the treatment for bloodshot eyes in the early morning is based upon the cause. If you have this eye issue, due to any reason, avoid rubbing the eyes with hands. You may also utilize some ice bag or rinse the eyes with cool water. These measures might relieve the eyes and alleviate the pain and swelling ...

A thirty-eight year old single mother of two presented with an unsightly grayish-pink, verrucous seborrheic keratosis covering her right cheek. She was extremely self-conscious of the lesion and kept her long hair over the seborrheic keratosis to conceal it. The lesion was of several years duration.... The dermatologists she consulted recommended either surgical or laser removal but could not guarantee scar-free results. The seborrheic keratosis was treated with a 35 percent plus hydrogen peroxide seborrheic keratosis composition of the present invention and allowed to react completely. Four days post treatment, the subject awoke to find the seborrheic keratosis lying on her pillow. She placed the seborrheic keratosis in a ZIP-LOCK plastic bag and delivered it to the PCA Skin Center where it was sent off for histologic examination. The subject was overjoyed with the result of her treatment that left no sign of the seborrheic keratosis. The subject is still keratosis free three years post ...
According to Larry Jaeger, seborrheic keratosis is a very common harmless, usually pigmented, noncancerous growth on the skin. It usually appears as a pale, black or brown growth on the back, shoulders chest or face, but can appear anywhere on the skin.. Seborrheic keratoses are also known as basal cell papillomas or seborrheic warts.. The American Academy of Dermatology says that although seborrheic keratosis may look worrisome, it is benign - not a cancer.. They tend to appear from middle-age on wards. Some individuals may have just one, however, most people who have them have several.. Seborrheic keratosis is not contagious.. ...
Seborrheic keratosis. Close-up of a seborrheic keratosis (seborrheic or senile wart) on the skin of an 82-year-old male patient. This skin growth is caused by over-production of keratin, the tough fibrous protein found in hair and the outer layer of skin. Keratoses range from flat, dark brown rough patches to small, wart-like protrusions covered with a greasy, removable crust. Seborrheic keratoses are mainly found on the trunk and usually occur in elderly patients. They are harmless, but as they are unsightly can be removed by cryosurgery (destruction of tissue using extreme cold) or surgical excision. - Stock Image C028/6668

There are other drugs that have been linked to Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, and these include some other NSAIDS (non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs), Allopurinol, Phenytoin, Carbamazepine, barbiturates, anticonvulsants, and sulfa antibiotics. The condition can sometimes - although not very often - be attributed to a bacterial infection, and in some cases there is no known cause for the onset of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome or Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis. However, the most common cause is through drug related reaction.Stevens-Johnson Syndrome can affect any age group. However, it occurs most commonly in older people, and this could be because older people tend to use more of the drugs associated with the disease and are therefore collectively more at risk from the disease. People that have AIDS are also at an increased risk of contracting Stevens-Johnson Syndrome or Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis. Those in the higher risk groups are urged to remain vigilant for any signs of these skin diseases, and are also ...
PURPOSE. To evaluate the use of autologous serum (AS) from patients with severe ocular surface disease (OSD) in the development of transplantable corneal and oral epithelial tissue equivalents and to compare it with the use of conventional culture methods by using fetal bovine serum (FBS). METHODS. AS was obtained from patients with severe OSD secondary to Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Corneal and oral epithelial cells were cultivated in medium supplemented with either AS or FBS. Corneal and oral epithelial equivalents were constructed on denuded amniotic membranes. The bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) ELISA cell proliferation assay and colony-forming efficiency (CFE) of cells cultivated in AS- or FBS-supplemented media were compared. The morphologic characteristics and the basement membrane assembly of cultivated epithelial equivalents were analyzed by light and electron microscopy, as well as by immunohistochemistry. RESULTS. BrdU proliferation assay and CFE analysis showed that human corneal and oral ...

Seborrheic keratosis is a kind of benign skin growth that is very common among people over 40 years of age. The growths resemble flattened or raised warts, but have no viral origins and may exhibit a variety of colors, from pink or yellow through brown and black. Seborrheic keratoses are non-cancerous growths of the outer layer of skin. They vary in size from a fraction of an inch in diameter to larger than a half-dollar. A main feature of seborrheic keratoses is their waxy, "pasted-on" or "stuck-on" look. They sometimes look like a dab of warm brown candle wax that has dropped onto the skin. ...
Seborrheic Keratosis: "barnacles of old age". Seborrheic keratoses are brown, often black, benign growths of the skin. They are characterised by their plastic/ waxy appearance (Seborrheic means greasy and keratosis means thickening of the skin). Quite often they are confused with warts.. Seborrheic keratoses are caused by hereditary factors, not the Sun - it is currently thought that they do not turn into melanoma, as moles do. When a seborrheic keratosis turns black it may be difficult to distinguish from a skin cancer without a biopsy.. Seborrheic keratoses are not contagious. The occurrence of one does not atomically mean that more will develop, although they are known to occur in clusters.. Also known as "barnacles of old age", almost everyone will develop a seborrheic keratosic formation at some time in their life. Their cause is not yet fully understood, and unless they develop suddenly, seborrheic keratosis does not indicate a serious health problem.. NOTE: If you have a pigmented spots ...

Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery also known as manual phaco or MSICS or SICS. This is the most cost effective cataract cataract extraction method with consistent very good visual outcome.We are demonstrating a real small incision 5.5 mm in this video. (You have seen a lot of SICS video at youtube but there incision size more than 8 mm). All types of cataracts (hard cataract,posterior polar cataract, mature cataract, hypermature cataract) can be operated by this method.
