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..

Although conjunctivitis is sometimes referred to as pink eye, this only really refers to one type of the disease, bacterial conjunctivitis. ...
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 ...

In both cases the patients were evaluated previously and the initial approach was aimed at treating an allergic conjunctivitis in the first patient and an infectious bacterial conjunctivitis in the second patient. The toxicity caused by the continuous usage of the medication may have helped make the evaluation of symptoms and signs more difficult. The epidemiologic history, the detailed medical history and the failure of the initial treatment were fundamental for the conduction of an etiologic investigation. The Parinaud oculoglandular syndrome presents itself most of the times with a number of symptoms that are very usual in the ophthalmologic practice, which allows for this hypothesis to be investigated very infrequently in the absence of a detailed epidemiologic and social history, and it is often confused with entities of inflammatory, infectious or allergic etiology. Serology in Brazil is very costly, which makes its performance only used for scientific purposes. Other methods auxiliary for ...

Bacterial conjunctivitis is less common than viral conjunctivitis. It is caused by bacteria such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Moraxella catarrhalis and Haemophilus influenzae.. These bacteria are members of the normal colonies living on healthy eyes and usually do not cause disease. However, they can proliferate and cause conjunctivitis in certain conditions, such as dry eye, after damage to the eye, or in a weakened immune system. More commonly, though, these bacteria simply cause conjunctivitis when transmitted from an infected person to a non-infected person.. Like viral conjunctivitis, bacterial conjunctivitis is contagious. One or both eyes may be involved and they are also red, irritated and gritty. However, bacterial conjunctivitis usually produces a sticky whitish or yellowish discharge like pus, in contrast to the watery tears of viral conjunctivitis..

are more commonly seen with viruses while papillae are seen in bacterial conjunctivitis. There are exceptions to this rule, however, and often a mixed picture with both papillae and follicles can be seen. Clear, mucoid discharge is more indicative of a virus while purulent discharge is associated with bacteria. For herpetic disease, finding periocular vesicles is a key to the diagnosis.. Clear cases of viral conjunctivitis do not require a work-up, but if there is any doubt as to the diagnosis, cultures of ocular discharge are required. Viral disease is treated conservatively with artificial tears and cold compresses. It often takes one to two weeks for symptoms to resolve.

When any of these conditions occur, the eye will begin to make more mucus. Sometimes the mucous production really is excessive and there is a temptation to keep pulling it out with either your fingers or a cotton swab. Dont do it; it just leads to recurring irritation and problems.. Any mucus that gets deposited OUTSIDE the eye on the outer eyelid or on the lashes is fair game for removal. In fact, anything on the exterior of the eyelid or stuck to the eyelashes should be cleaned off. Just dont reach INSIDE the eyelids.. Every time you go in there to pull out mucus, your finger or a cotton swab further irritates the eye and causes it to make more mucus and you end up with the viscious cycle that we call mucus fishing syndrome.. If you have an acute problem that is causing excessive mucus, you need to try and get the underlying problems treated and under control. That means treating the allergy, blepharitis, infectious conjunctivitis, or Dry Eye.. In addition, you need to STOP putting your ...

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.

BACKGROUND Primary meningococcal conjunctivitis is a rare condition that can have devastating ocular and systemic complications. METHODS Review of the case records. CONCLUSIONS Appropriate Gram stain and cultures should be obtained in cases of hyperacute conjunctivitis, especially in young patients, and systemic antibiotics should be initiated promptly where Gram-negative diplococci are found and prophylaxis for close contacts considered in Neisseria meningitidis conjunctivitis.
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.

Health care providers. Given the ubiquitous use of latex products in health care settings, management of latex allergy presents significant health organizational problems. Those healthcare workers-such as physicians, nurses, aides, dentists, dental hygienists, operating room employees, occupational therapists, laboratory technicians, and hospital housekeeping personnel-who frequently use latex gloves and other latex-containing medical supplies are at risk for developing latex allergy.[25] Between about 4% to 17% of healthcare workers have a reaction, which usually presents as Irritant Contact Dermatitis. This contact dermatitis can develop further through allergic sensitivity to a status of full anaphylactic shock. Apart from the uncomfortable and in some cases life-threatening health implications, this will effectively hinder the person from working with any amount of latex and could impede their chance of maintaining their vocation.[26] In the surgical setting, the risk of a potentially ...

Antibodies are produced when the body is exposed to an antigen foreign to the make-up of the body. If a mother is exposed to a foreign antigen and produces IgG (as opposed to IgM which does not cross the placenta), the IgG will target the antigen, if present in the fetus, and may affect it in utero and persist after delivery. The three most common models in which a woman becomes sensitized toward (i.e., produces IgG antibodies against) a particular antigen are hemorrhage, blood transfusion, and ABO incompatibility.. Fetal-maternal hemorrhage, which is the movement of fetal blood cells across the placenta, can occur during abortion, ectopic pregnancy, childbirth, ruptures in the placenta during pregnancy (often caused by trauma), or medical procedures carried out during pregnancy that breach the uterine wall. In subsequent pregnancies, if there is a similar incompatibility in the fetus, these antibodies are then able to cross the placenta into the fetal bloodstream to attach to the red blood ...
