Bacterial conjunctivitis in Muc1 null mice. (1/94)

PURPOSE: In contrast to wild-type mice, genetically engineered Mucin1 (Muc1) null animals display a marked propensity for development of blepharitis and conjunctivitis. Molecular approaches confirmed the presence of Muc1 mRNA and protein in the conjunctival tissue of wild-type mice and identified the bacterial species in Muc1 null symptomatic mice. METHODS: Muc1 null animals housed in a conventional facility were examined for visually apparent inflammation of the eye and surrounding tissue. Blood taken from overtly affected animals was assayed for antibodies to common murine viral agents. Swabs of infected eyes and whole eye preparations were used to detect and speciate bacterial pathogens. Frozen sections of whole eye, lid margin, and Harderian gland were immunostained with antibodies to Muc1 and cytokeratin 14, both epithelial cell markers. Northern blot analysis and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) were performed on RNA isolated from conjunctiva and Harderian gland of wild-type mice to compare relative levels of transcript. RESULTS: Student's unpaired t-test performed on the eye inflammation frequency of Muc1 null mice confirmed a statistical significance (P < 0.01) when compared to wild-type background animals housed in the same room. Analysis of blood samples from affected Muc1 null animals detected no common murine viral pathogens. Bacterial analysis of conjunctival swabs and whole eye preparations demonstrated the presence of coagulase-negative Staphylococcus, Streptococcus type alpha, and Corynebacterium group G2. Muc1 antibody staining of wild-type sections revealed the presence of Muc1 on conjunctival goblet and non-goblet cells and on the epithelium of the Harderian gland. Serial sections stained with cytokeratin 14 antibody confirmed the epithelial nature of cells expressing the Muc1 protein. RNA from conjunctiva and Harderian gland subjected to RT-PCR and northern blot analysis showed an abundance of Muc1 transcript in these tissues. CONCLUSIONS: Muc1 mRNA and protein are present in murine conjunctival and Harderian gland epithelia. Animals lacking Muc1 mRNA and protein are predisposed to developing eye inflammation when compared to wild-type animals with an intact Muc1 gene. Muc1 appears to play a critical protective role at the ocular surface, presumably by acting as a barrier to infection by certain bacterial strains.  (+info)

Identification and antibiotic susceptibility of coagulase negative staphylococci isolated in corneal/external infections. (2/94)

AIMS: To identify and determine antibiotic susceptibility of coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS) isolated from patients with chronic blepharitis, purulent conjunctivitis, and suppurative keratitis. METHODS: A retrospective review of all culture positive cases of chronic blepharitis, purulent conjunctivitis, and suppurative keratitis between July 1995 and December 1996 was performed. Cases in which CoNS were the sole isolates were analysed. Species identification was performed by using a commercially available standardised biochemical test system. Antibiotic susceptibility to penicillin, gentamicin, tetracycline, erythromycin, ciprofloxacin, and teicoplanin was determined by agar disc diffusion (Kirby-Bauer method). Teicoplanin resistance was confirmed by agar dilution. RESULTS: 42 Staphylococcus epidermidis, four S warneri, three S capitis, two S hominis, one each of S xylosus, S simulans, S equorum, and S lugdunensis were identified. 37 CoNS were penicillin resistant, 12 gentamicin resistant, 28 tetracycline resistant, 18 erythromycin resistant, four ciprofloxacin resistant, and one teicoplanin resistant (MIC, 32 microg/ml). In total, 16 strains were resistant to three or more antibiotics. CONCLUSION: Species of CoNS apart from S epidermidis may be isolated from patients with corneal and external infection. Antibiotic susceptibility of CoNS is unpredictable and multiresistant strains are common. As a result, antibiotic susceptibility testing should be performed in all cases of clinically significant ocular infections caused by CoNS.  (+info)

Bartonella henselae associated with Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome. (3/94)

Bartonella henselae was recovered from the conjunctival scraping of a 38-year-old woman who presented with a 2-week history of tender preauricular lymphadenopathy and a 1-day history of a red left eye. Dry adherent colonies were observed on agar plates at 21 days of incubation, and the isolate was identified through conventional and molecular tests. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of a specific region of the 16S rRNA gene and confirmation by a separate PCR reaction with hybridization of the product with a B. henselae-specific probe confirmed the isolate as B. henselae. This is the first reported isolation of the causative agent of cat scratch disease from ocular tissue in a patient with Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome.  (+info)

Genetic relatedness among nontypeable pneumococci implicated in sporadic cases of conjunctivitis. (4/94)

Nontypeable Streptococcus pneumoniae is a common cause of epidemic conjunctivitis. A previous molecular fingerprinting study identified a clone of nontypeable pneumococcus that was responsible for a recent outbreak of conjunctivitis. In the present study, we examined the extent to which pneumococci that cause sporadic cases of conjunctivitis are related to this epidemic strain. Using arbitrarily primed BOX-PCR, we have determined that, of 10 nontypeable pneumococci causing sporadic conjunctivitis, 5 were clonal and closely related to a previous outbreak strain, whereas 5 others were genetically diverse.  (+info)

Increasing bacterial resistance in pediatric acute conjunctivitis (1997-1998). (5/94)

We sought to determine the current level of resistance in Haemophilus influenzae and Streptococcus pneumoniae, the primary pathogens of pediatric conjunctivitis. Between January 1997 and March 1998, we prospectively cultured acute conjunctivitis in 250 ambulatory pediatric patients from rural Kentucky whose average age was 24.3 months. In those 250 cases, 106 H. influenzae (42% of the total) and 75 S. pneumoniae (30% of the total) pathogens were isolated, with no growth or no pathogen resulting in 79 cases (32% of the total). Beta-lactamase was detected in 60 (69%) of 87 tested strains of H. influenzae. Among 65 isolates of S. pneumoniae tested for penicillin susceptibility, 44 (68%) were susceptible, 17 (26%) were resistant, and 4 (6%) were intermediate. Conjunctivitis with acute otitis media was observed in 97 patients (39%), and H. influenzae was recovered in 57% of these 97 cases. As for in vitro activity, ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, and tetracycline were the most active; and gentamicin, tobramycin, polymyxin B-trimethoprim, and polymyxin B-neomycin were intermediately active. Sulfamethoxazole possessed no activity against either pathogen. Beta-lactamase production was detected in 69% of H. influenzae strains, which still remains the primary causative pathogen of both conjunctivitis and conjunctivitis-otitis syndrome. Penicillin-nonsusceptible S. pneumoniae was observed in 32% of 65 patients with S. pneumoniae conjunctivitis, with most strains being penicillin resistant.  (+info)

Characterization of Neisseria gonorrhoeae strains isolated from patients with conjunctivitis. (6/94)

The conjunctivitis produced by Neisseria gonorrhoeae is the less frequently reported clinical form of gonococcal infection. We aim to phenotypically characterize N. gonorrhoeae isolated from conjunctivae sites. A total of six cases of this disease were notified in the Camaguey province, Cuba. All the strains isolated were penicillin-producing, showed the serogroup WI and exhibited the same antimicrobial susceptibility pattern and plasmid profile (2.6-3. 2-24.5). The results contribute to the characterization of N. gonorrhoeae strains circulating in our environment.  (+info)

Corynebacterium macginleyi: a conjunctiva specific pathogen. (7/94)

BACKGROUND: Although non-diphtherial corynebacteria are ubiquitous in nature and commonly colonise the skin and mucous membranes of humans, they rarely account for clinical infection. METHODS AND RESULTS: 10 patients with unilateral conjunctivitis are described in which Corynebacterium macginleyi was isolated. This species has only recently been reported to be exclusively isolated form ocular surfaces. C macginleyi was uniformly susceptible to topical antibiotics commonly used in ophthalmology. CONCLUSION: Despite the fact that the pathogenicity of C macginleyi is not yet assured, this micro-organism should be recognised as a potential cause of bacterial superinfections. Appropriate antibiotic therapy leads to its elimination and resolution of the conjunctivitis.  (+info)

16S rDNA-based identification of bacteria from conjunctival swabs by PCR and DGGE fingerprinting. (8/94)

PURPOSE: Establishment of a new molecular biology technique for the identification of multiple bacteria from the ocular environment, which can be applied supplementarily to cultivation in cases of severe bacterial infections. METHODS: From 60 human conjunctivae (29 with purulent and 31 with nonpurulent conjunctivitis), swabs were taken and DNA was extracted. Fragments of 200 bp, spanning the V3 region of the eubacterial 16S rDNA, were amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and separated by denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE). For phylogenetic identification, DGGE bands were excised and directly sequenced, or 16S rDNA clone libraries were constructed and clones were screened by DGGE. Sequences were compared with sequences of known bacteria listed in the EMBL database. Furthermore, the results were compared with results obtained from conventional cultivation. RESULTS: 16S rDNA could be amplified from 25 of 29 investigated swabs taken from purulent conjunctivitis eyes and from 2 of 31 investigated swabs taken from nonpurulent conjunctivitis eyes. Sixteen samples showed monomicrobial and 11 samples showed polymicrobial infections. The following genera (n is number of samples) were detected: Staphylococcus (n = 8), Corynebacterium (n = 7), Propionibacterium (n = 7), Streptococcus (n = 6), Bacillus (n = 2), Acinetobacter (n = 3), Pseudomonas (n = 3), Proteus (n = 1), and Brevundimonas (n = 1). Four sequences could not be identified to the genus level. They had highest sequence similarities both to sequences of Pantoea and Enterobacter (n = 1), Kingella and Neisseria (n = 1), Serratia and Aranicola (n = 1), and Leuconostoc and Weissella (n = 2), respectively. Culture was only positive for coagulase-negative staphylococci (n = 9), Corynebacteria (n = 3), Staphylococcus aureus (n = 1), Streptococcus sp. (n = 1), Proteus sp. (n = 1), Klebsiella oxytoca (n = 1), and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (n = 1). In total, 45% of the 60 analyzed conjunctival swabs were PCR positive, whereas only 22% were culture positive. No sample positive by culture gave negative results by PCR. CONCLUSIONS: 16S rDNA sequence analyses and DGGE fingerprinting are appropriate methods for the detection and identification of monomicrobial as well as polymicrobial ocular infections of bacteria that might not be detected by conventional cultivation.  (+info)

For further examination please consult your ophthalmologist, who can diagnose infectious conjunctivitis by its symptoms and appearance. When examining the eye with a slit lamp, the doctor may find conjunctival redness (the white part of the eye is bloodshot, more in the edges than in the middle) and that pus-like, white or yellow discharge is present. By the way: a slit lamp is an instrument that allows inspecting the eye under high magnification. If the disease lasts for a long time, samples of infected secretions may also be analyzed to identify the infecting organism. Blood is not routinely used in diagnosing eye inflammations.. ...
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 ...

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 conjunctiva is a very thin, transparent membrane that covers the outer surface of your eye as well as the inner surface of your eyelid. Conjunctivitis is the inflammation of this layer caused by a bacterial or viral infection or an allergic reaction to an irritant. It is commonly referred to as "pinkeye" because the white of your eye (sclera), appears pink and blood shot as a result of the dilation of the arteries in response to the inflammation. If the cause is due to a viral or bacterial infection then one should be very careful not to touch the infected eye and then touch the eye that is not infected as the bacteria/viruses are spread by contact. Allergic conjunctivitis is usually much itchier than infectious conjunctivitis and it commonly occurs with swelling of the eyelid. Applying a cold patch over the eye usually helps reduce swelling and itching. In both form of conjunctivitis there is usually increased tear production. The watering in infectious conjunctivitis is often accompanied ...
Conjunctivitis is the most common eye disease in the western hemisphere. Its an inflammation of the conjunctiva which makes the sclera appear reddened due to an increase in blood supply..

Conjunctivitis, commonly known as pink eye, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the membrane that lines the inner surface of the eyelid and part of the surface of the eye. Conjunctivitis is characterized by redness, clear or coloured discharge, and sometimes itching. It is more common in children, but can also affect adults.
Often the pathology worsens the childs well-being, the body temperature rises.. Treatment of conjunctivitis in a child should be carried out immediately after the appearance of the first symptoms strictly according to the doctors prescription. The doctor, first of all, should determine the cause of the inflammation - a viral or bacterial infection. If the disease has a pronounced allergic nature, you may be referred to an allergist for further examination.. Treatment of conjunctivitis is carried out strictly under the supervision of a doctor. Uncontrolled use of medicines or the use of folk methods can lead to the development of the inflammatory process of the cornea of the organ of vision.. Usually, local agents, in particular, eye drops and ointments, are used to treating the disease. With bacterial conjunctivitis, antibacterial agents are prescribed, and in the case of a viral infection, antiviral drugs are prescribed. Simultaneously with taking medication, the eyes should be treated with ...

Conjunctivitis, commonly known as pinkeye, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the clear membrane that covers the white part of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelids.

If you have an acute problem that is causing excessive mucus, you need to try and get the underlying problems treated and under control.

METHODS: We retrospectively studied the records of 65 patients with chlamydial conjunctivitis who were referred to the Outpatient Department of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) of the University Hospital Rotterdam by ophthalmologists of the Eye Hospital Rotterdam. The patients have recently been asked by letter if they were left- or right-handed. RESULTS: Twenty of the 37 men (54%) had a positive chlamydial urethral culture. Seventy per cent of these men had no genital symptoms. Eight of the 37 men (22%) had a non-specific urethritis (NSU). Twenty of the 27 women examined (74%) had a positive chlamydial cervical culture. Sixty per cent of these women had no genital symptoms. Eight women with a genital chlamydial infection also had another genital infection. Five women without a genital chlamydial ...
The analysts forecast global viral conjunctivitis drugs market to grow at a CAGR of 2.41% during the period 2016-2020.. Viral conjunctivitis, or pink eye, is a type of infectious conjunctivitis that is commonly caused by an adenovirus. Herpes simplex virus (HSV), picornavirus (enterovirus 70, Coxsackie A24), varicella-zoster virus, poxvirus (molluscum contagiosum and vaccinia), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are some of the other viruses that are responsible for the infection. Discomfort through watery discharge is the main symptom of this highly contagious condition. It is often associated with keratoconjunctivitis, which results in slightly blurred vision. No specific treatment option is available for the infection, which heals by itself in 2-3 weeks. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs are used only if the condition persists. In certain instances, when the infection is serious or persists for weeks, topical antiviral drugs are used. Corneal lesions persist for months even after ...
The differential diagnosis for pseudomembranes or membranes most commonly includes severe viral or bacterial conjunctivitis, Stevens Johnson syndrome, and chemical burns. Less common are ligneous conjunctivitis, ocular cicatricial pemphigoid, and superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis. Ligneous conjunctivitis can be distinguished from other causes of pseudomembranes because of its thicker, more homogenous appearance, and by patient history as it is more common in infants than are other causes of membranes such as ocular cicatricial pemphigoid. Pseudomembranes can be differentiated from membranes on peeling: the presence of blood after peeling favors the diagnosis of a true membrane ...

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 ...
KNOWING WHATS CAUSING THE PROBLEM, CAN HELP YOU DECIDE ON TREATMENT Having itchy uncomfortable eyes is never fun. Irritated red eyes are an annoying condition to go about your day, but could it be a sign of something more serious? Its hard to tell the difference between eye allergies and eye infections because of their similar symptoms. Here is some information you can use to differentiate between the two and help you get proper treatment.. DO YOU WEAR CONTACT LENSES?. Contact lens wearers need to be more proactive with irritations since wearing lenses places you at a higher risk. If you wear contact lenses and are experiencing eye irritation, you may have conjunctivitis caused by over-wearing your lenses. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), contact lens overwears, badly fitted lenses and improper cleaning of lenses can lead to contact lens-induced conjunctivitis. Allergy sufferers that wear contact lenses may benefit from daily replacement of contact lenses with fresh, ...

Abstract 1.1 Purpose The purpose of this study is to prescribe follicular-like conjunctivitis associated with Siliconhydrogels (FoCoSi) in silicone hydrogel contact lens wearers as a novel subtype of the well prescribed contact lens induced papillary conjunctivitis (CLPC). 1.2 Methods 1211 patients who wore silicon hydrogels were included in this prospective, nonrandomised, single center study. Subjective symptoms and clinical signs were evaluated for daily wear (DW) and continuous wear (CW) populations for several (Lotrafilcon A, Lotrafilcon B, Senofilcon A, Galyfilcon A) silicon hydrogel lens types. CCLRU and other specifically developed grading scale were utilized for evaluation. Grading of 2 and above was rated as clinically significant. Statistical evaluation was performed for eyes rather than subjects. 1.3 Results The clinical presentation of FoCoSi could be confirmed and showed an incidence of 3.8%. Lotrafilcon A followed by Senofilcon A on a CW modality presented, with a risk
