518 Possible Causes for Acute Hemorrhagic Leukoencephalitis, Corneal Infiltrate, Free-Living Ameba Infection

  • Acanthamoeba Keratitis

    Epidemiology of free-living ameba infections. J Protozool 1990;37(4):25S-33S. van Flink F et al.[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] It typically presents as a unilateral central or paracentral corneal infiltrate, often with a ring-shaped peripheral infiltrate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This infection is caused by a microscopic, free-living ameba (single-celled living organism) called Acanthamoeba.[cdc.gov]

  • Keratitis

    Source : AAO Acanthamoeba keratitis Causes This infection is caused by a microscopic, free-living ameba (single-celled living organism) called Acanthamoeba.[provisu.ch] Adenoviral conjunctivitis may lead to subepithelial corneal infiltrates as a late complication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He had undergone a corneal tear repair on that eye 15 days prior to the onset of keratitis. The infiltrations were along the sutured corneal tear tracts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    These epithelial lesions can lead to anterior stromal corneal infiltrates.[cehjournal.org] Corneal neovascularization and lipid infiltrates may occur in patients with uncontrolled chronic disease.[aafp.org] Punctate and dendritic lesions can lead to anterior stromal corneal infiltrates. 11, 12 View/Print Figure FIGURE 2.[aafp.org]

  • Fungal Keratitis

    The corneal infiltrate findings were suggestive of fungal keratitis, and corneal smears were positive for septate fungal hyphae.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient responded to amphotericin B treatment and the corneal infiltration resolved, leaving a plaquelike corneal scar.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The corneal epithelium closed completely within 3 days and the infiltrate was completely eradicated without administration of antibiotics.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bee Sting

    Ocular bee stings are known to cause corneal melts, corneal infiltrates, cataracts, and secondary glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Focal corneal infiltrate and associated low-grade uveitis tend to persist if treated with topical steroids only.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The stinger was identified in the depth of the corneal infiltration. Visual acuity was 5/10. It was removed surgically.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
