422 Possible Causes for Corneal Infiltrate, Free-Living Ameba Infection

  • Acanthamoeba Keratitis

    Epidemiology of free-living ameba infections. J Protozool 1990;37(4):25S-33S. van Flink F et al.[] It typically presents as a unilateral central or paracentral corneal infiltrate, often with a ring-shaped peripheral infiltrate.[] This infection is caused by a microscopic, free-living ameba (single-celled living organism) called Acanthamoeba.[]

  • Keratitis

    Source : AAO Acanthamoeba keratitis Causes This infection is caused by a microscopic, free-living ameba (single-celled living organism) called Acanthamoeba.[] 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.[]

  • 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.[]

  • Bee Sting

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

Luchs JI , D'Aversa G , Udell IJ .[] Definition Term If an epithelium defect is present, will it be bigger or smaller than the infiltrate?
