19 Possible Causes for Conjunctival Biopsy Abnormal, Corneal Infiltrate, Skin Infection

  • Acanthamoeba Keratitis

    It typically presents as a unilateral central or paracentral corneal infiltrate, often with a ring-shaped peripheral infiltrate.[] Disseminated infection – A widespread infection that can affect the skin, sinuses, lungs, and other organs independently or in combination.[] The progressive nature of the corneal infiltrate, the epithelial defect, and the lack of response to treatment was highly suggestive for Acanthamoeba keratitis.[]

  • Fungal Keratitis

    The corneal infiltrate findings were suggestive of fungal keratitis, and corneal smears were positive for septate fungal hyphae.[] It is necessary to search for other fungal skin infections such as onychomycosis and athelete's foot considering the fungal keratitis following skin infection.[] It is necessary to search for other fungal skin infections such as onychomycosis and athelete’s foot considering the fungal keratitis following skin infection.[]

  • Chlamydial Conjunctivitis

    corneal neovascularization and/or conjunctival scaring Conjunctival follicles or corneal infiltrates may persist for months Management: Combined topical and systemic antibiotics[] For skin infections, Dr.[] infiltrates Histopathology : basophilic intracytoplasmic epithelial inclusion bodies (on Giemsa staining) SYMPTOMS Unilateral or bilateral involvement Purulent discharge,[]

  • Pterygium

    We report an interesting case of infectious scleritis from coinfection of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Bipolaris with no corneal infiltrate.[] A chalazion is not caused by infection but can become a site for infection if left untreated.[] 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.[]

  • Sarcoidosis

    Keratic precipitates located on the lower part of corneal endothelium are also visible. Retinal vasculitis in sarcoidosis.[] Because infections can also cause granulomas that look similar to sarcoidosis, your doctor will test your lung or skin sample for infections such as tuberculosis to rule out[] Disorders Atypical Mycobacteriosis Fungal Infection Reaction to foreign bodies Rheumatoid Nodules Liver Disorders Brucellosis Schistosomiasis Primary Biliary Cirrhosis Crohn's[]

  • Trachoma

    Another common finding is a diffused corneal opacity that is the end stage of peripheral and central corneal infiltrates.[] Young children are most likely to develop trachoma, caused by an infection that spreads through skin-to-skin contact or from flies that have touched discharge from the eyes[] Onchocerciasis, or river blindness, an infection of the skin by filarial larvae that may also affect the conjunctiva of the eye.[]

  • 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.[] In the skin, LCs are modulated by neuropeptides released from epidermal nerves [ 16, 17 ].[]

  • Stevens-Johnson Syndrome

    A painful conjunctivitis may occur in the eye, frequently with a pus discharge, and can lead to corneal scarring and loss of vision.[] , and hematologic abnormalities 1 month after initiating several medications.[] However, this may be complicated by secondary skin infections that increases the morbidity rates among afflicted patients.[]

  • Conjunctivitis

    Häufige Begriffe und Wortgruppen abnormalities Acad Dermatol acute antibodies antigen Arch Dermatol Arch Ophthalmol areas arthritis associated biopsy blepharitis cause cell[] Corneal infiltrates are very rare.[] Trachoma infection of the eyes can also cause chronic conjunctivitis and can lead to chronic keratoconjunctivitis.[]

  • Onchocerciasis

    Wolbachia release after microfilaria death in the cornea causes corneal edema and opacity by inducing neutrophil and macrophage infiltration and activation in the corneal[] Skin and conjunctival biopsy specimens initially disclosed no abnormalities.[] Chronically infected people often develop skin discoloration and severe, burning itching skin and/or eye lesions.[]
