298 Possible Causes for Corneal Edema, Iritis

  • Corneal Abrasion

    These include: Congenital diseases like keratoconus Scars from infection or trauma Degenerative corneal diseases Corneal dystrophies Corneal Edema All of the above cause the[] uveitis (anterior ciliary injection, cells, flare) Differential diagnosis Infectious keratitis (all forms) Recurrent corneal erosion Spontaneous epithelial breakdown in EBM[] Rigid contact lenses can lead to relative corneal hypoxia, epithelial edema, and epithelial breakdown.[]

  • Anterior Uveitis

    The corneal edema and uveitis subsided following surgical extraction of the lens fragment.[] Anterior uveitis is the more common of the two.[] There was no significant difference in central corneal thickness between eyes with and without uveitis (P 0.27). No eyes had clinically apparent central corneal edema.[]

  • Foreign Body in the Eye

    Entry sites in the cornea may be seen as a disruption in the smooth surface with corneal edema surrounding the entry site.[] Steroids, even in the presence of iritis or ensuing iritis, are relatively contraindicated until re-epithialization has been noted.[] Iritis Painful eye, photophobia, constricted or irregular pupil, headache, nausea. Refer to Eye Hospital. See acute red eye . Pterygium Reassure.[]

  • Dendritic Keratitis

    Four-and-a-half months later, the patient showed total resolution of corneal edema with a central corneal thickness of 510 µp?.[] A 7-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl suffered from unilateral disciform keratitis and iritis associated with varicella.[] Herpetic keratouveitis Sometimes in addition to the corneal infection above, there is inflammation in the front chamber of the eye (a type of iritis).[]

  • Corneal Ulcer

    ; Conjunctiva - hyperaemia, cobblestone appearance of the tarsal papillae in both eyes, 2 chemosis; Cornea - corneal edema with a 8 mm 4 mm epithelial defect in the inferior[] A cycloplegic may be considered if signs of iritis.[] If there is severe iritis, layering of inflammatory cells in the lower part of the anterior chamber (hypopyon) may occur.[]

  • Glaucoma

    Following intravenous mannitol, the corneal edema resolved.[] Severe iritis occurred in two eyes and hyphema occurred in three eyes. No instances of hypotony or phthisis bulbi were reported.[] […] protein Lens-induced glaucoma Uveitis By drugs Corticosteroid-induced glaucoma Due to other means Viscoelastic agents Vitreous hemorrhage Alterations Due to edema Alkali burns Iritis[]

  • Allergic Conjunctivitis

    Just as in AKC, patients, if untreated, can develop conjunctival scarring or corneal neovascularization, scarring, or erosions/ulcers.[] […] vision Absence of focal pathology (eg stye or blepharitis ) The following "red flags" point to other more serious diagnoses, such as keratitis ( inflammation of the cornea ), iritis[] They include inflammatory conditions affecting the inside of the eye, shingles, iritis and ulceration of the eye (although all these conditions tend to cause blurring or reduction[]

  • Iritis

    Ciliary flush, a violaceous ring around the cornea, is highly indicative of intraocular inflammation. [ 1 ] Corneal edema and vitreous haze (large collection of inflammatory[] About 34% of the patients with anterior uveitis, including iritis, has idiopathic etiology.[] Even with prompt clinical care serious complications such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal edema and corneal band keratopathy may occur.[]

  • Bee Sting

    Corneal epithelial defect, corneal edema, secondary bacterial keratitis, heterochromia iridis, and internal ophthalmoplegia were identified The corneal edema markedly improved[] We present a case of corneal bee sting with retained stinger apparatus and associated iritis and discuss the pathologic mechanisms of injury, evaluation, and treatment of[] Postsurgery, visual acuity improved, and the corneal edema regressed over a 1-month follow-up.[]

  • Interstitial Keratitis

    Pathologic examination of the corneal button disclosed corneal edema, posterior stromal vascularization, much thickening of Descemet's membrane, and concentrically laminated[] Anterior uveitis Anterior uveitis is unilateral in 56% of cases. It is granulomatous, with mutton-fat keratic precipitates on the corneal endothelium, in 50% of cases.[] Five eyes of five patients with congenital syphilitic interstitial keratitis who underwent keratoplasty for corneal opacities and corneal edema were studied.[]
