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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Disseminated infection – A widespread infection that can affect the skin, sinuses, lungs, and other organs independently or in combination.[cdc.gov] The progressive nature of the corneal infiltrate, the epithelial defect, and the lack of response to treatment was highly suggestive for Acanthamoeba keratitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.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] It is necessary to search for other fungal skin infections such as onychomycosis and athelete's foot considering the fungal keratitis following skin infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is necessary to search for other fungal skin infections such as onychomycosis and athelete’s foot considering the fungal keratitis following skin infection.[bmcophthalmol.biomedcentral.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] For skin infections, Dr.[healio.com] infiltrates Histopathology : basophilic intracytoplasmic epithelial inclusion bodies (on Giemsa staining) SYMPTOMS Unilateral or bilateral involvement Purulent discharge,[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu]

  • Pterygium

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

  • Sarcoidosis

    Keratic precipitates located on the lower part of corneal endothelium are also visible. Retinal vasculitis in sarcoidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[foundation.chestnet.org] Disorders Atypical Mycobacteriosis Fungal Infection Reaction to foreign bodies Rheumatoid Nodules Liver Disorders Brucellosis Schistosomiasis Primary Biliary Cirrhosis Crohn's[physio-pedia.com]

  • Trachoma

    Another common finding is a diffused corneal opacity that is the end stage of peripheral and central corneal infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[independent.co.uk] Onchocerciasis, or river blindness, an infection of the skin by filarial larvae that may also affect the conjunctiva of the eye.[patient.info]

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

  • 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.[healthcentral.com] , and hematologic abnormalities 1 month after initiating several medications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, this may be complicated by secondary skin infections that increases the morbidity rates among afflicted patients.[symptoma.com]

  • Conjunctivitis

  • 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[doi.org] Skin and conjunctival biopsy specimens initially disclosed no abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chronically infected people often develop skin discoloration and severe, burning itching skin and/or eye lesions.[neglecteddiseases.gov]
