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.[] It typically presents as a unilateral central or paracentral corneal infiltrate, often with a ring-shaped peripheral infiltrate.[] This infection is caused by a microscopic, free-living ameba (single-celled living organism) called Acanthamoeba.[]

  • Fungal Keratitis

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

  • Pterygium

    We report an interesting case of infectious scleritis from coinfection of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Bipolaris with no corneal infiltrate.[] 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.[] […] and vascular congestion with feeder vessels into connective tissue May cause atrophy, thickening or dysplasia of adjacent corneal epithelium Goblet cell hyperplasia Microscopic[]

  • Chlamydial Conjunctivitis

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

  • Keratitis

    Source : AAO Acanthamoeba keratitis Causes This infection is caused by a microscopic, free-living ameba (single-celled living organism) called Acanthamoeba.[] Adenoviral conjunctivitis may lead to subepithelial corneal infiltrates as a late complication.[] 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.[]

  • Sarcoidosis

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

  • Trachoma

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

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

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

  • Punctate Keratitis

    The opacities represent corneal mononuclear cell infiltrates consistent with a viral entity.[] Conjunctival biopsies showed epithelial parakeratosis, hyperplasia, basal cells hyperplasia, and tufts.[] The papillary conjunctivitis and corneal infiltrate appeared unchanged.[]
