643 Possible Causes for Corneal Infiltrate, Free-Living Ameba Infection, Hypopyon

  • 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.[] Four weeks later, the patient had increased stromal infiltration, an endothelial plaque, and a hypopyon. She did not complain of pain apart from mild discomfort.[]

  • 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.[] In addition he had suspected bacterial keratitis with hypopyon in the left eye as a possible secondary infection of an epithelial defect that is a feature of Reiter's keratitis[]

  • Hypopyon Ulcer

    The diagnosis of a sterile corneal ulcer and infiltrate was established.[] Look at other dictionaries: hypopyon keratitis — suppurative keratitis with purulent infiltration and hypopyon; see hypopyon ulcer … Medical dictionary Ulcer — An area of[] Corneal infiltration after recurrent corneal epithelial erosion . Br J Ophthalmol 1997; 81 (7): 537–540. 3. Luchs JI , D'Aversa G , Udell IJ .[]

  • Fungal Keratitis

    The corneal infiltrate findings were suggestive of fungal keratitis, and corneal smears were positive for septate fungal hyphae.[] PARTICIPANTS: Series of 19 eyes in 19 patients with severe fungal keratitis complicated with hypopyon that received minimal trephination PKP.[] The patient responded to amphotericin B treatment and the corneal infiltration resolved, leaving a plaquelike corneal scar.[]

  • Corneal Ulcer

    The best corrected visual acuity, location, size, and density of corneal infiltrates, the size and presence of a corneal epithelial defect, subjective eye pain (scale of 0[] In all cases corneal trauma preceded the development of extensive ulcers, subconjunctival abscesses, and hypopyon.[] The patient, a 12-year-old boy presented with large corneal ulcer with hypopyon. The direct microscopic examination of scrapings revealed hyaline, septate mycelium.[]

  • Endophthalmitis

    Ocular bee stings are known to cause corneal melts, corneal infiltrates, cataracts, and secondary glaucoma.[] Large submacular abscess with posterior hypopyon warranted urgent vitrectomy which revealed Aspergillus terreus on fungal culture.[] Vitritis, corneal infection, hypopyon, and clumps of thick material in the anterior chamber are some of the most common findings.[]

  • Acute Endophthalmitis

    Despite combination of antifungal and antibiotic therapies, the corneal infiltrate was still progressing with corneal melting.[] The case was notable for the absence of pain or hypopyon.[] In multiple linear regression analysis, female gender, presence of hypopyon, and worse baseline VA were significant independent predictors of worse visual outcome.[]

  • Chronic Endophthalmitis

    Hypopyon is an accumulation of white blood cells in the anterior chamber of the eye and corneal infiltrate associated with infectious endophthalmitis.[] We report a case of chronic low-grade endophthalmitis after cataract surgery presenting with recurrent episodes of severe anterior chamber reactions and hypopyon uveitis caused[] .  Ring corneal infiltrate & ring abscess is typical of Bacillus. also assoc.with proptosis,chemosis & severe orbital pain in 24hrs  Commoner in rural setting due to retained[]
