Compound-heterozygous mutations in the plasminogen gene predispose to the development of ligneous conjunctivitis. (1/369)

Homozygous type I plasminogen deficiency has been identified as a cause of ligneous conjunctivitis. In this study, 5 additional patients with ligneous conjunctivitis are examined. Three unrelated patients (1 boy, 1 elderly woman, and 1 man) had plasminogen antigen levels of less than 0.4, less than 0.4, and 2.4 mg/dL, respectively, but had plasminogen functional residual activity of 17%, 18%, and 17%, respectively. These subjects were compound-heterozygotes for different missense mutations in the plasminogen gene: Lys19 --> Glu/Arg513 --> His, Lys19 --> Glu/Arg216 --> His, and Lys19 --> Glu/Leu128 --> Pro, respectively. The other 2 patients, a 14-year-old boy and his 19-year-old sister, who both presented with a severe course of the disease, exhibited plasminogen antigen and functional activity levels below the detection limit (<0.4 mg/dL and <5%, respectively). These subjects were compound-heterozygotes for a deletion mutation (del Lys212) and a splice site mutation in intron Q (Ex17 + 1del-g) in the plasminogen gene. These findings show that certain compound-heterozygous mutations in the plasminogen gene may be associated with ligneous conjunctivitis. Our findings also suggest that the severity of clinical symptoms of ligneous conjunctivitis and its associated complications may depend on the amount of plasminogen functional residual activity.  (+info)

Suppression of induction of experimental immune mediated blepharoconjunctivitis by tolerogenic conjugates of the antigen and monomethoxypolyethylene glycol. (2/369)

AIM: Covalent conjugates consisting of diverse antigens coupled to optimal numbers of monomethoxypolyethylene glycol (mPEG) molecules have been shown to suppress antigen specific antibody formation. In this study, the possibility was examined that the same conjugates might prevent experimental immune mediated blepharoconjunctivitis (EC, formerly EAC) which had been shown to be caused by CD4(+) T cells-that is, to cell mediated immunity. METHODS: 6-8 week old male Lewis rats were used. The test groups of rats received two intravenous injections, each of 300 microg, of a conjugate of ovalbumin mPEG (OVA(mPEG)(11)) in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), 14 and 28 days before the single immunisation with OVA in complete Freund's adjuvant. The rats were challenged 3 weeks later by eye drops containing OVA; 24 hours later they were sacrificed, and their eyes, blood, and lymph nodes were harvested for histological examination and determination of anti-OVA antibody titres and levels of cellular immunity. Two control groups received PBS or OVA in PBS before immunisation. Furthermore, the possibility that OVA(mPEG)(11) may have induced OVA specific suppressor cells was tested by establishing the effects of the co-transfer of splenocytes from OVA(mPEG)(11) treated rats with OVA primed lymph node cells on the manifestations of EC. RESULTS: Either PBS or OVA pretreated rats, which had not received OVA(mPEG)(11), developed high levels of antibodies and cell mediated immune responses to OVA, and application of eye drops led to blepharoconjunctivitis with massive cellular infiltration. In contrast, pretreatment with OVA(mPEG)(11) prevented cellular infiltration into the lids and conjunctivas, as well as the formation of detectable humoral and cellular immunity against OVA. Co-transfer of splenocytes from OVA(mPEG)(11) treated rats with OVA primed lymph node cells suppressed the cellular infiltration on application of OVA on the conjunctiva. CONCLUSIONS: These data indicate that intravenous injection of OVA(mPEG)(11) conjugates suppressed both humoral and cellular immunity by the effects of antigen specific suppressor cells, thus leading to the inhibition of development of EC.  (+info)

Expression of gelatinase B in trachomatous conjunctivitis. (3/369)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Gelatinase B is a matrix metalloproteinase involved in extracellular matrix (ECM) breakdown often associated with scarring and other pathological disorders. It was investigated whether gelatinase B is involved in the pathogenesis of ECM degradation associated with trachomatous conjunctivitis. METHODS: Conjunctival biopsy specimens obtained from six patients with active trachoma, six patients with active vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC), and seven control subjects were studied. Immunohistochemical techniques and a specific monoclonal antibody against human gelatinase B were used, and a monoclonal antibody against macrophage CD68 to identify mononuclear cells with gelatinase B immunoreactivity. In addition, quantitative zymography was used to compare the activity of gelatinase B in conjunctival biopsy specimens from seven patients with active trachoma and seven control subjects. RESULTS: Gelatinase B was detected by immunohistochemistry only in polymorphonuclear cells located in the vascular lumens in three normal conjunctival biopsy specimens. In all trachoma specimens and in five VKC specimens, gelatinase B was localised in monocyte/macrophage cells, positive for the CD68 marker, and in polymorphonuclear cells. The majority of the latter cell type was located in intravascular spaces. Compared with VKC specimens, trachoma specimens showed significantly more immunoreactive gelatinase B monocyte/macrophage cells (52.3 (21.9) v 8.2 (6.4); p <0.001) and polymorphonuclear cells (23.2 (14.2) v 6.3 (5.4); p = 0. 013). Activated macrophages with giant cell morphology clearly stained with the gelatinase B specific monoclonal antibody were observed in trachoma specimens. Zymography revealed that gelatinase B levels in trachoma specimens were significantly higher than the levels found in normal conjunctiva (1739.6 (1078.3) v 609.3 (395.9) scanning units; p = 0.0127). CONCLUSIONS: The increased activity of gelatinase B and numbers of inflammatory cells containing gelatinase B in trachoma specimens suggest that this enzyme plays a part in the pathogenesis of conjunctival scarring in trachoma.  (+info)

Expression of CD40 and CD40 ligand in the human conjunctival epithelium. (4/369)

PURPOSE: CD40 antigen is a membrane receptor that plays a role in the regulation of immune reactions. The expressions of CD40 and CD40 ligand (CD40L) were investigated ex vivo and in vitro in conjunctival epithelial cells, in correlation with HLA DR class H antigen, previously shown to be upregulated in conjunctival inflammatory conditions. METHODS: Impression cytology specimens were collected in 186 patients: 52 normal ones, 65 with keratoconjunctivitis sicca, and 69 with chronic conjunctivitis. Cells were processed for flow cytometry, by using monoclonal antibodies to CD40, CD40L, and HLA DR antigens. Chang conjunctival cells were also used and treated with human recombinant interferon (IFN)-gamma or tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha. CD40, CD40L, and HLA DR expressions were studied by flow cytometry after 24 and 48 hours of treatment. RESULTS: CD40 was found in both normal and pathologic eyes. Quantitation of levels of fluorescence showed a significantly higher expression in pathologic eyes than in normal ones (P < 0.0001). CD40L was variably and inconstantly expressed by conjunctival cells. A strong expression of HLA DR was observed in pathologic eyes, whereas normal eyes showed very low levels (P < 0.0001). Significantly positive correlations were found among CD40, CD40L, and HLA DR levels. Chang conjunctival cells expressed CD40 in basal conditions, whereas CD40L and HLA DR were negative. CD40 expression significantly increased after 24 hours of IFNgamma treatment and after 48 hours' exposure to TNFalpha. These cytokines had no effect on CD40L expression. HLA DR was upregulated after 24 hours of treatment with IFNgamma but remained negative after exposure to TNFalpha. CONCLUSIONS: Human conjunctival epithelial cells normally express CD40 antigen, and, more inconsistently, CD40L. Flow cytometry showed higher expression of these molecules in inflammatory eyes than in normal ones in correlation with class II antigen expression, as well as CD40 and HLA DR upregulation after treatment with proinflammatory cytokines in vitro.  (+info)

An investigation of the family background of acute Haemophilus infections of children. (5/369)

Nose and throat swabs, for culture of Haemophilus influenza type b, and blood samples, for measurement of antibodies specific for that serotype, were collected from members of 28 families from which children had been admitted to hospital with acute H. influenzae type b infections (mainly meningitis or epiglottitis). The patients with meningitis were younger than those with epiglottitis and had more siblings, with a marked predominance of sisters. Investigations within a few days of admission of the affected children to hospital detected carriers of H. influenzae type b (19 altogether) in 13 of the 28 families, including 9 of the 13 families with 3 or more children. Members with raised antibody titres for H. influenzae type b (suggesting the presence of the organism for at least a few weeks) were found in 17 of the 25 families from which blood samples were obtained, including all 11 families with 3 or more children. Most of the patients probably acquired their infections from within their own families, and siblings under 11 years old were of predominant importance both as carriers and as potential sources of the patients' infections. Persistence of the organism within families for up to 6 months was demonstrated. Possible reasons for the difference in age-incidence between haemophilus meningitis and epiglottitis and for the occurrence of the former in babies with older sisters are suggested, and also a possible connection between the results of this survey and the likely value of immunization against H. influenzae type b.  (+info)

Simple tests for the diagnosis of picornavirus epidemic conjunctivitis (acute haemorrhagic conjunctivitis). (6/369)

Simple tests for the study of picornavirus epidemic conjunctivitis are described. The virus was successfully isolated in wells of microtitration plates containing HeLa cell suspension and the isolates were easily identifiable by neutralization in the micrometabolic inhibition test. For the estimation of antibody titre in patients' sera, the latter procedure was found to be as reliable as neutralization in tissue culture tubes. These micromethods would enable virus laboratories not equipped for tissue culture work to study this new ocular disease, which has been endemic in a number of countries since the pandemic outbreak of 1969-72 in Africa, Asia, and Europe (London).  (+info)

Untoward effects associated with practolol: demonstration of antibody binding to epithelial tissue. (7/369)

An antibody which sticks to the intercellular region of xenogenic epidermal tissue has been shown by indirect immunofluorescence to be present in the serum of patients with practolol-induced eye damage. These antibodies and those found in patients with pemphigus were compared for their ability to bind to isolated epidermal cells. Binding was achieved only with the pemphigus antibody, which suggests that it may have a different specificity from the antibody associated with practolol-induced eye damage.  (+info)

Recent epidemiological status of feline upper respiratory infections in Japan. (8/369)

Epidemiology of upper respiratory infections of cats was studied. Nasal, ocular, and oral swabs collected from 111 cats presented at animal hospitals during the past 2.5 years were examined. Twenty-four (21.6%) and 4 (3.6%) cats were diagnosed as feline calicivirus (FCV) infection and feline viral rhinotracheitis, respectively, indicating FCV is more prevalent than feline herpesvirus-1, which revealed a considerable shift from data obtained in 1970s. Cat sera immunized by using vaccines containing either FCV F9 or 255 strains neutralized 42.9% and 66.7% of the FCV isolates, respectively. Chlamydia psittaci, examined by a PCR assay amplifying the ompA gene, was found in 26.9% of 26 diseased cats that typically showed conjunctivitis and rhinitis.  (+info)

Ligneous conjunctivitis is a rare disorder characterized by the buildup of a protein called fibrin which causes inflammation of the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis) and leads to thick, woody (ligneous), inflamed growths that are yellow, white, or red. Ligneous conjunctivitis most often occurs on the inside of the eyelids, but may also affect the sclera, cornea and pupil, leading to vision loss. A systemic form of the condition may occur, affecting the mucous membranes of the larynx, vocal chords, nose, trachea, bronchi, vagina, cervix, and gingiva. The cause of ligneous conjunctivitis is unknown. Autosomal recessive inheritance has been suggested in some cases. Ligneous conjunctivitis is sometimes associated with a condition known as congenital plasminogen deficiency.. ...

Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva is the thin transparent layer of tissue that lines the inner surface of the eyelid and covers the white part of the eye.. Often called pink eye, conjunctivitis is a common eye disease, especially in children. It may affect one or both eyes. Some forms of conjunctivitis are highly contagious and can easily spread in schools and at home. While conjunctivitis is usually a minor eye infection, sometimes it can develop into a more serious problem.. A viral or bacterial infection can cause conjunctivitis. It can also develop due to an allergic reaction to air irritants such as pollen and smoke, chlorine in swimming pools, ingredients in cosmetics, or other products that contact the eyes, such as contact lenses. Sexually transmitted diseases like chlamydia and gonorrhea are less common causes of conjunctivitis.. ...

Corneal subepithelial infiltrates are a known complication of adenoviral conjunctivitis.1 These lesions usually become apparent within 10-14 days after onset of symptoms and in some cases may persist for months or even years after the acute phase of the infection. Although the opacities gradually fade with time, those associated with reduced visual acuity may require a course of topical corticosteroids. However, return of the opacities can be seen with discontinuation of the corticosteroids.2 In cases of prolonged follicular conjunctivitis, equivocal ocular signs, or suspected superimposed infections, specimen culture is an important tool to aid diagnosis.3,4. Although small star-shaped ulcers (herpetic stellates) have been documented as a clinical manifestation seen in herpes simplex eye infections,5 these lesions have been confined to the corneal epithelium. To our knowledge, no such lesions have been documented in the tarsoconjunctiva, either in adenoviral or herpes simplex viral ...

Concretion in the palpebral conjunctiva, is called conjunctival concretion, that is a (or a cluster) small, hard, yellowish-white calcified matter, superficially buried beneath the palpebral conjunctiva. Most of concretions in the eye form in the palpebral conjunctiva, which is a clear membrane to surround the inside of the eyelid. Less can be located in the cornea and retina. Chronic conjunctivitis (e.g. trachoma) and aging factor are two causes of conjunctival concretion, which will make the conjunctiva cellular degeneration to produce an epithelial inclusion cyst, filled with epithelial cells and keratin debris. After calcification, the conjunctival cyst hardens and forms a conjunctival concretion. Congenital conjunctival concretion condition is also more common. Conjunctival concretions are generally asymptomatic. Common symptoms include eye discomfort, eye irritation, and foreign body sensation. Sometimes, the larger, harder or multiple concretions make the rubbing off of the superficial ...

It is possible that the coronavirus could ...
By examining a persons eyes, a doctor can tell whether redness and irritation are caused by conjunctivitis or by something else. If the diagnosis is conjunctivitis, and the infectious type is suspected, the physician may take a small swab sample from the inside of the eyelids. When tested in the laboratory, such samples can be used to determine the type of organism causing the infection. This will be important for treatment, especially if bacteria are found to be the cause. ...

Depending on the cause, there are several types of treatment. The most common is a topical antibiotic cream. Sometimes eye drops will cure the problem if the inflammation is due to an irritant or foreign object in the eye. You can also bathe the eye in a fresh saline solution. Sometimes cat will require a local injection to treat the infection. This treatment, however, is usually saved for very difficult and severe cases of conjunctivitis that would normally require a very large amount of topical cream or eye drops to cure. Conjunctivitis not caused by irritants or a simple bacterial infection may require oral medication. Chlamydia is treated this way, as well as Herpes-related conjunctivitis. Nutritional support is also becoming more popular. A somewhat unexplainable solution known as Willard Water can be fed to the cat as a substitute for regular water. It is available in most pet stores. Including extra antioxidants in the cats diet can also help prevent recurring infections. Feline ...

A recent epidemic of acute conjunctivitis in Singapore showed again the importance of Coxsackie virus type A24 variant as a causative agent of acute haemorrhagic conjunctivitis (AHC). Although the ocular manifestations appeared similar to those described for the 1970 and 1975 outbreaks, a markedly higher rate of respiratory involvements was noted. Not observed in previous epidemics were herpes-like vesicles in the conjunctiva and eyelids of one patient and vesicles in the buccal mucosa and lips of another from whom Coxsackie virus A24 was isolated. The most interesting finding in this study was the isolation of five wild (non-Sabin) poliovirus type 1 strains. Three strains were obtained from conjunctival and two from throat swabs of patients with mild to severe conjunctivitis. It is conceivable that the rare reports of polio-like paralysis or radiculomyelitis accompanying or following AHC in a few Asian countries could be attributed to concurrent infections with a poliovirus and either ...

Many different bacteria and viruses can cause conjunctivitis in the neonate. The two most common causes are N. gonorrheae and Chlamydia acquired from the birth canal during delivery. Ophthalmia neonatorum due to gonococci (N. gonorrhoeae) typically manifests in the first 5 days after birth and is associated with marked bilateral purulent discharge and local inflammation. In contrast, conjunctivitis secondary to infection with C. trachomatis produces conjunctivitis 3 days to 2 weeks after delivery. The discharge is usually more watery in nature (mucopurulent) and less inflamed. Babies infected with chlamydia may develop pneumonitis (chest infection) at a later stage (range 2-19 weeks after delivery). Infants with chlamydia pneumonitis should be treated with oral erythromycin for 10-14 days.[8]. Other agents causing ophthalmia neonatorum include herpes simplex virus (HSV 2), Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus haemolyticus, and Streptococcus pneumoniae. Diagnosis is performed after taking swab ...
Certain forms of conjunctivitis can develop into a more serious condition that may harm your eyes and affect your vision. An optometrist can diagnose the form of conjunctivitis and recommend appropriate treatment.. Bacterial infectious conjunctivitis is usually treated with antibiotic eye drops and/or antibiotic ointment. Viral forms of infectious conjunctivitis are fought off by your bodys immune system. Treatment for a viral infection is primarily supported with artificial tears and cool compresses; more severe cases may benefit from prescription anti-inflammatory eye drops or in-office treatment by an optometrist.. Symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis can be somewhat relieved by placing a clean facecloth soaked in ice-cold water over closed eyes, or with over-the-counter artificial teardrops. An optometrist can prescribe eye drops for allergies (steroids, antihistamines and mast cell stabilizers) to control and prevent both acute and chronic allergy symptoms.. The ideal treatment for chemical ...

The diagnosis of inclusion conjunctivitis cannot be made definitively without laboratory testing, but the signs of inclusion conjunctivitis can be seen by the eye care provider, even if a patient is not symptomatic. Follicles can seen on the inside inferior eyelids and occasionally under the superior eyelid of the patient with adult inclusion conjunctivitis, and if treatment has been delayed, scarring of the interior of the eyelids may be present as well as kerititis, an inflammation of the cornea, and neovascularization, or new blood vessel formation of the cornea. Upon questioning the individual may report a history of a genitourinary infection. The laboratory testing for inclusion conjunctivitis begins with swabbing a sample from the inside of the eyelids to test for the presence of the characteristic inclusion bodies made only by chlamydia. The Giemsa stain is used often to diagnose neonatal inclusion conjunctivitis. This technique has a high rate of false positives for the adult with ...
The conjunctiva is a clear membrane that is the tough, leathery outer coat of the eye. The white of the eye actually lies behind the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva has many small blood vessels and serves to lubricate and protect the eye while the eye moves in its socket.. When the conjunctiva becomes inflamed, this is called conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis can have many causes, such as bacteria (as in pink eye), viruses, chemicals, allergies, and more. In many cases it is difficult to determine the primary cause for the inflammation. One of the most common is bacterial conjunctivitis.. Bacterial conjunctivitis is associated with swelling of the lid and a yellowish discharge. Sometimes it causes the eye to itch and a mattering of the eyelids, particularly upon waking. The conjunctiva appears red and sometimes thickened. Often both eyes are involved.. The bacteria most commonly at fault are the Staphylococcus, the Streptococcus, and H. Influenza. This disease is very contagious, and can be easily ...
C. Stephen Foster, M.D., F.A.C.S, F.A.C.R.. We reported the results of our experience with cataract surgery in 20 patients (26 eyes) with biopsy-proven cicatricial pemphigoid. All patients were on systemic immunosuppression at the time of surgery (dapsone, azathioprine, cyclophsophamide, or combinations) and were treated with peri-operative oral corticosteroids. Patients were evaluated pre- and postoperatively for conjunctival inflammation, conjunctival cicatrization, degree of keratopathy, and disease stage. No patient progressed in disease stage. Vison improved an average of 3.5 Snellen lines (-3 to +8). Worse outcome was associated with chemotherapy intolerance or the presence of any preoperative conjunctival inflammation. Thirteen patients remained on immunosuppressives for the entire study. Corneal ulcers developed postoperatively in three patients in whom continued immunosuppression was not tolerated. Results indicate that after successful abolition of all conjunctival inflammation through ...

How old is the infant? Age may be helpful in determining the cause of eye discharge. For conjunctivitis: in the first 6-24 hours of life, conjunctivitis is often due to ocular prophylaxis (usually silver nitrate drops; it may also be from tetracycline, erythromycin, or gentamicin). After 24-48 hours, a bacterial infection is most likely; the most common neonatal organisms are Neisseria gonorrhoeae (2-7 days but can present later) and Staphylococcus aureus (5-14 days). Chlamydia trachomatis conjunctivitis is usually seen after the first week of life (5-14 days) and often presents as late as the second or third week. Herpes conjunctivitis is seen 6-14 days after birth. Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections are typically seen between 5 and 18 days. Note: Bacterial infections can occur anytime. Lacrimal duct obstruction usually manifests at 2 weeks of age, but can be seen in the first few days to the first few weeks after birth. ...
