443 Possible Causes for Conjunctival Biopsy Abnormal, 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]

  • 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]

  • Pterygium

    We report an interesting case of infectious scleritis from coinfection of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Bipolaris with no corneal infiltrate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Infiltrate on corneal surface is separated by a clear zone from the limbus. Occur at 2, 4, 8, and 10 o'clock position. Does not have typical pterygium shape.[de.slideshare.net] […] and vascular congestion with feeder vessels into connective tissue May cause atrophy, thickening or dysplasia of adjacent corneal epithelium Goblet cell hyperplasia Microscopic[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Chlamydial Conjunctivitis

    corneal neovascularization and/or conjunctival scaring Conjunctival follicles or corneal infiltrates may persist for months Management: Combined topical and systemic antibiotics[dro.hs.columbia.edu] infiltrates Histopathology : basophilic intracytoplasmic epithelial inclusion bodies (on Giemsa staining) SYMPTOMS Unilateral or bilateral involvement Purulent discharge,[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] There are epithelial keratitis and subepithelial corneal infiltration, followed by gradual corneal vascularization from the upper limb os downward.[notesread.com]

  • 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]

  • Sarcoidosis

    Keratic precipitates located on the lower part of corneal endothelium are also visible. Retinal vasculitis in sarcoidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (A) Retinal vasculitis in a 22 year old white male patient with sarcoidosis visible as focal perivascular inflammatory infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Trachoma

    Another common finding is a diffused corneal opacity that is the end stage of peripheral and central corneal infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There is also keratitis with corneal infiltrates, pannus and vascularization.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] […] opacity over the pupil Microscopic (histologic) description Stage I: Conjunctival inflammatory infiltrates (lymphoid follicles and diffuse infiltrates) Followed by pannus[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

    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]

  • Punctate Keratitis

    The opacities represent corneal mononuclear cell infiltrates consistent with a viral entity.[web.archive.org] Conjunctival biopsies showed epithelial parakeratosis, hyperplasia, basal cells hyperplasia, and tufts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The papillary conjunctivitis and corneal infiltrate appeared unchanged.[siliconehydrogels.org]
