408 Possible Causes for Corneal Infiltrate

  • Keratitis

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

  • 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.[]

  • 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.[]

  • Scedosporium Infection

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

  • 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[]

  • Bee Sting

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

  • Hypopyon Ulcer

    The diagnosis of a sterile corneal ulcer and infiltrate was established.[] Corneal infiltration after recurrent corneal epithelial erosion. Br J Ophthalmol 1997; 81 (7): 537–540. 3. Luchs JI, D'Aversa G, Udell IJ.[] 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?[]

  • 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[] RESULTS: In this outbreak of 72 patients, 28 (38.9%) developed corneal infiltrates.[] 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[]

  • Phlyctenular Keratoconjunctivitis

    Examination revealed the presence of catarrhal corneal infiltrates and neovascularization associated with corneal thinning.[] 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[] After 3 weeks of treatment, both patients showed complete resolution of corneal infiltrates and neovascularization.[]

  • Acanthamoeba Keratitis

    It typically presents as a unilateral central or paracentral corneal infiltrate, often with a ring-shaped peripheral infiltrate.[] The progressive nature of the corneal infiltrate, the epithelial defect, and the lack of response to treatment was highly suggestive for Acanthamoeba keratitis.[] The infection is associated with minimal corneal trauma and soft contact lens wear.[]
