11/19. Definite multiple sclerosis and uveitis: a two cases report.

    Uveitis has infrequently been described as a manifestation of ocular inflammation in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Two patients with pre-existing definite MS and uveitis were described. The first patient had features of intermediate uveitis, and the second case had a features of retinal periphlebitis. However, each patient had neurologic signs consistent with MS and a negative laboratory tests for inflammatory and infectious diseases. The presence of neurological involvement with uveitis need a sequential diagnostic search. ( info)

12/19. somatostatin for Uveitic Cystoid macular edema (CME).

    PURPOSE: To report the favorable response of bilateral recalcitrant uveitic cystoid macular edema (CME) to treatment with a somatostatin analog. methods: Medical ophthalmic history and the results of ophthalmic examinations were recorded. fluorescein angiography (FA) studies were reviewed. RESULTS: A 52-year-old white female with intermediate uveitis developed bilateral recalcitrant CME. Treatment with subcutaneous injections of the somatostatin analog octreotide resulted in partial resolution of the CME and improvement of visual acuity. CONCLUSIONS: somatostatin may play a role in the treatment of CME secondary to uveitis. ( info)

13/19. Uveitis associated with human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I.

    Seroepidemiologic, clinical, and virologic studies were performed to determine whether human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I was closely associated with uveitis in two hospitals. One hospital was in an endemic area of the virus (Miyakonojo, Miyazaki) and the other hospital was in a less endemic area (Kurume). In the endemic area, the seroprevalence of the virus in patients with uveitis without defined causes (35.4%, 62 of 175 patients) was significantly higher than that in patients with nonuveitic ocular diseases (16.1%, 42 of 261 patients), or in patients with uveitis with defined causes (10.3%, eight of 78 patients). The seroprevalence in younger patients (20 to 49 years of age) with uveitis without defined causes in the area was 44.8% (30 of 67 patients), whereas it was only 9.3% (ten of 107 patients) in the other two groups. A similar observation was recorded even in the less endemic area (Kurume). Because the seroprevalence of the virus in the general population is known to be low in younger patients and to increase with age, these findings were interpreted to indicate that the association of human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I with uveitis was significant. Most patients, particularly those aged 20 through 49 years, had an intermediate uveitis characterized by a moderate inflammation in the vitreous body accompanied by an iritis and retinal vasculitis. The ocular symptoms in the patients differed from those of other types of uveitis common in japan (Behcet's disease, Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada's disease, and toxoplasmosis, for example).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) ( info)

14/19. Post-streptococcal uveitis.

    PURPOSE: To describe the clinical features of post-streptococcal uveitis (PSU) and examine management strategies in the treatment of this under-recognized condition. methods: patients were identified from the world literature using the pubmed search engine. We examined two new cases of post-streptococcal intermediate uveitis. The epidemiology, immune mechanisms, clinical features, investigations, treatments and visual outcomes were examined and recorded. RESULTS: We reviewed 11 patients including our own two cases. There was a statistically significant seasonal difference in antistreptolysin-O titres (ASOT), and age-related ASOT was identified. Of the 11 patients, eight (72.7%) had anterior uveitis, two (18.2%) had intermediate uveitis and one (9.1%) had panuveitis. Their ages ranged from 5 to 56 years (mean 17 years). The majority of cases had significantly elevated ASOT; most patients were treated with topical steroids and oral antibiotics and four cases underwent adenotonsillectomy. The visual prognosis was good in most cases. CONCLUSIONS: Uveitis may be the sole presenting clinical feature, or it may occur in combination with other features of post-streptococcal infection. Ophthalmologists should be aware of the clinical features of PSU and maintain a high level of suspicion, particularly in childhood uveitis. ( info)

15/19. borrelia hermsii causing relapsing fever and uveitis.

    PURPOSE: To describe a case of uveitis that is associated with borrelia hermsii relapsing fever. DESIGN: Interventional case report. methods: A 12-year-old boy with two weeks of relapsing fevers 10 days after camping in remote eastern oregon was examined. borrelia hermsii immunoglobulin m and G levels were markedly elevated. Intravenous ceftriaxone, followed by four weeks of oral cephuroxime was administered, but the patient developed unilateral floaters and blurred vision in association with anterior and intermediate uveitis. RESULTS: doxycycline was administered for presumed residual infection. Four weeks later, the visual acuity had improved. The anterior chamber was quiet, and topical corticosteroid was tapered successfully. CONCLUSION: Although rare, borrelia hermsii should be included in the list of spirochetal diseases that are associated with uveitis. ( info)

16/19. Unusual ocular lesions in AIDS.

    Presentation of 5 patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome and unusual ocular complications. The first case appears as a non-specific, intermediate uveitis, the others as complications due to various infectious agents. ( info)

17/19. Chronic granulomatous anterior uveitis associated with multiple sclerosis.

    A retrospective review is presented of the medical records of seven female patients with uveitis associated with definite multiple sclerosis. Six of the patients had severe bilateral chronic granulomatous anterior uveitis, which in four cases resulted in extensive posterior synechiae and scarring of the peripupillary iris. One patient had bilateral intermediate uveitis with unilateral posterior synechiae. Severe chronic granulomatous anterior uveitis associated with multiple sclerosis has a predilection for women, can precede neurological symptoms and can be controlled with topical steroids. ( info)

18/19. Intermediate uveitis and retinal vasculitis as manifestations of cat scratch disease.

    PURPOSE: To study the ocular manifestations of systemic Rochalimaea infection. methods: We examined a healthy 21-year old woman who had floaters in both eyes. A bilateral mild vitreitis and multiple foci of retinal vasculitis were found; during the ensuing two weeks, exudates appeared over the inferior pars plana. The patient owned five kittens but had no history of cat bites or scratches. serum levels of antibodies to Rochalimaea were elevated. RESULT: The retinal vasculitis and vitreitis resolved after three weeks of therapy with ciprofloxacin hydrochloride without concomitant anti-inflammatory therapy. CONCLUSION: Rochalimaea infection should be considered in the differential diagnosis of intermediate uveitis and retinal vasculitis. ( info)

19/19. Glaucomatocyclitic crisis in a child.

    PURPOSE: To report a case of glaucomatocyclitic crisis (Posner-Schlossman syndrome) in a child. METHOD: Case report. A 13-year-old boy presented with decreased vision, photophobia, halos, and pain in the right eye. RESULT: Findings in this child were consistent with a diagnosis of Posner-Schlossman syndrome. CONCLUSION: Glaucomatocyclitic crisis can occur in a child and must be included in the differential diagnosis of uveitis and glaucoma in pediatric patients. ( info)
