224 Possible Causes for Corneal Infiltrate, Iritis, Loss of Vision

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

    Anterior uveitis develops in 40–50% of cases with HZO within 2 weeks of onset of the skin rashes.[] These epithelial lesions can lead to anterior stromal corneal infiltrates.[] The visual outcome was good, with 14/24 patients having 6/6 vision; severe vision loss ( 6/60) occurred in only 2/24.[]

  • Keratitis

    The patient presented with progressive loss of vision with best-corrected visual acuity 20/40. Immature cataract with 1.43D against the rule astigmatism was noted.[] Adenoviral conjunctivitis may lead to subepithelial corneal infiltrates as a late complication.[] PURPOSE: Despite following standard treatment, Pseudomonas keratitis can continue to progress and result in loss of vision or of the eye.[]

  • Foreign Body in the Eye

    Steroids, even in the presence of iritis or ensuing iritis, are relatively contraindicated until re-epithialization has been noted.[] There were 4 cases of corneal infiltrate, 3 of them preceded by an AC reaction.[] If you have a foreign body in your eye, prompt diagnosis and treatment will help prevent infection and potential loss of vision.[]

  • Hypopyon Ulcer

  • Iritis

    About 34% of the patients with anterior uveitis, including iritis, has idiopathic etiology.[] Look for the presence of corneal infiltrates and/or epithelial defects.[] Sir, We describe a patient with signs of partial third nerve palsy, severe iritis, and loss of vision due to essential thrombocytosis.[]

  • Anterior Uveitis

    Persistent or untreated anterior uveitis can lead to scarring, glaucoma, and/or a permanent loss of vision, thus prompt evaluation and treatment at the first sign of symptoms[] Slit lamp examination revealed multiple disc-shaped corneal stromal infiltrates with an overlying epithelial defect and hypopyon in both the eyes.[] Anterior uveitis is the more common of the two.[]

  • Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma

    An elderly man had acute angle-closure glaucoma soon after undergoing bilateral lower eyelid blepharoplasty that resulted in complete loss of vision in one eye.[] Signs of infectious infiltrate in the cornea. IOP usually normal. Gonioscopy shows an open angle. The anterior chamber depth is usually normal.[] […] pupil , endotracheal tube , Erythema infectiosum , eye pain , german measles , glaucoma , hallucination , Hypoglycemia , infant , infectious disease , intraocular pressure , iritis[]

  • Endophthalmitis

    This possible differential diagnosis should be kept in mind while treating patients with presumable sterile hypopyon and anterior uveitis having a high intraocular pressure[] Ocular bee stings are known to cause corneal melts, corneal infiltrates, cataracts, and secondary glaucoma.[] Abstract Postoperative infectious endophthalmitis is rare, yet devastating loss of vision or loss of the eye can occur due to a highly purulent microorganism or uncontrolled[]

  • Eyeball Injury

    This type of injury places a child at risk for permanent loss of vision.[] If an abrasion does become infected, you’ll see a white infiltrate at the wound. Any abrasion with an infectious infiltrate is officially called a “corneal ulcer.”[] Traumatic Iritis One complication that can occur after blunt trauma injury to the eye is traumatic iritis, which is swelling and inflammation in the front half of the eye.[]

  • Acanthamoeba Keratitis

    She presented with a burning sensation and extreme pain, along with loss of vision.[] It typically presents as a unilateral central or paracentral corneal infiltrate, often with a ring-shaped peripheral infiltrate.[] She had radial neurokeratitis, pseudodendritic keratitis, superficial stromal infiltration, and iritis on her first visit ( Figure 1H ). Her BCVA was 0.15.[]
