There was total limitation of adduction in her left eye with complaints of diplopia in all gazes with maximum separation of images in dextroversion on diplopia[…][]

  • Sarcoidosis

    Sarcoidosis (Besnier-Boeck disease, Besnier-Boeck-Schaumann disease) is a multisystem inflammatory disease of unknown etiology, characterized by non-necrotizing granulomatous inflammation, predominantly in the lungs and intrathoracic lymph nodes. The presentation of the disease is highly dependent on the extent of[…][]

  • Fungal Keratitis

    A fungal keratitis is an 'inflammation of the eye's cornea' (called keratitis) that results from infection by a fungal organism. Keratomycosis is the Greek terminology equivalent of fungal keratitis - it is the fungal infection of the cornea, the anterior part of the eye which covers the pupil. Those experiencing[…][]

  • Acanthamoeba Keratitis

    Acanthamoeba keratitis is a rare disease in which amoebae invade the cornea of the eye, and affects roughly 1.2 to 3 million people each year. Acanthamoeba are protozoa found nearly ubiquitously in soil and water, and can cause infections of the skin, eyes, and central nervous system. Infection of the cornea by[…][]

  • Chlamydial Conjunctivitis

    Abstract A molecular biological method of detecting and serotyping Chlamydia trachomatis (C. trachomatis) directly from conjunctival specimens by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was developed and applied to the diagnosis of inclusion conjunctivitis. We amplified 1.2 kbp DNA fragments of ompA gene from 15 reference[…][]

  • Trachoma

    Trachoma is a particular type of infection provoked by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis causing a characteristic roughening of the eyelid's inner surface. There are two phases during the development of trachoma, the active phase and a scarring (or cicatricial) phase, which do not necessarily follow a linear[…][]

  • Limbal Stem Cell Deficiency

    Written By: Gargi Khare Vora, MD, and Melissa B. Daluvoy, MD Edited by Sharon Fekrat, MD, and Ingrid U. Scott, MD, MPH Download PDF The corneal epithelium is a continuously regenerating surface that is replenished by a stem cell supply located in the basal epithelial layer of the limbus. The importance of these stem[…][]
