408 Possible Causes for Corneal Infiltrate

  • Keratitis

    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] Shortly after treatment with topical corticosteroids, a fulminant corneal infiltrate manifested along the temporal arcuate incision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • 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]

  • Scedosporium Infection

    He had a 4 x 4 mm central corneal infiltrate with satellite lesions and a 4 mm hypopyon ( Figure 1a ).[omicsonline.org] infiltrate.[ijo.in] The right eye showing corneal opacity and conjunctival congestion with right infiltration lesion around (red arrowhead).[journals.sagepub.com]

  • Lecithin Acyltransferase Deficiency

    A 20-year-old male of Indian extraction presented with visual impairment principally due to bilateral diffuse punctate corneal infiltration, with peripheral ring opacities[tandfonline.com]

  • Bee Sting

    Ocular bee stings are known to cause corneal melts, corneal infiltrates, cataracts, and secondary glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The stinger was identified in the depth of the corneal infiltration. Visual acuity was 5/10. It was removed surgically.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Focal corneal infiltrate and associated low-grade uveitis tend to persist if treated with topical steroids only.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypopyon Ulcer

    The diagnosis of a sterile corneal ulcer and infiltrate was established.[nature.com] Corneal infiltration after recurrent corneal epithelial erosion. Br J Ophthalmol 1997; 81 (7): 537–540. 3. Luchs JI, D'Aversa G, Udell IJ.[nature.com] Definition Term If an epithelium defect is present, will it be bigger or smaller than the infiltrate? Definition Term What are common SE of corneal infiltrates?[flashcardmachine.com]

  • Epidemic Keratoconjunctivitis

    PURPOSE: Aim was to measure the effect of persistent subepithelial corneal infiltrates (SEIs) after epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC) on visual performance and corneal optical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: In this outbreak of 72 patients, 28 (38.9%) developed corneal infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: The present study investigated particularly subepithelial corneal infiltrates (SEI) occurrence after EKC, which was searched for at each visit in the 2nd week, 1st[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Phlyctenular Keratoconjunctivitis

    Examination revealed the presence of catarrhal corneal infiltrates and neovascularization associated with corneal thinning.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Corneal Infiltrate Corneal infiltrates usually associated with contact lens wear This condition is not characterized by ulceration and the lesion does not migrate into the[decisionmakerplus.net] After 3 weeks of treatment, both patients showed complete resolution of corneal infiltrates and neovascularization.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acanthamoeba Keratitis

    It typically presents as a unilateral central or paracentral corneal infiltrate, often with a ring-shaped peripheral infiltrate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.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] The infection is associated with minimal corneal trauma and soft contact lens wear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
