36 Possible Causes for Corneal Infiltrate, Plasmodium

  • 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]

  • Keratitis

    Pediculosis, Pthiriasis) Liver Flukes (Clonorchiasis, Opisthorchiasis, Fascioliasis) Loiasis ( Loa loa Infection) Lymphatic filariasis (Filariasis, Elephantiasis) Malaria ( Plasmodium[cdc.gov] 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]

  • Amebiasis

    Therefore, Entamoeba histolytica is second only to the Plasmodium parasite (responsible for malaria) as a protozoan cause of death.[news-medical.net] However, the cornea continued to worsen with 25% corneal thinning inferior to the ring infiltrate.[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] A plasmodium-encoded cytokine suppresses T-cell immunity during malaria.

  • Pseudomonas Aeruginosa

The patient was examined by in vivo confocal microscopy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Novel Plasmodium falciparum metabolic network reconstruction identifies shifts associated with clinical antimalarial resistance.[biorxiv.org]

  • Microsporidiosis

    A full scale genome mapping project is needed to allow comparison with the better characterised related parasites Toxoplasma and Plasmodium .[gut.bmj.com] The corneal infiltrates’ appearance was essentially unchanged.[healio.com] FOLLOW UP AT 1 WEEK • Symptomatic improvement • Decreased conjunctival congestion • Reduced corneal epithelial and subepithelial infiltrates 24. 10X 25. • 20 years • Female[slideshare.net]

  • Tuberculosis

    The diagnosis of a severe Plasmodium vivax patient co-infected with HIV and tuberculosis is discussed with an overview of the rapid response mounted by the Anti Malaria Campaign[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Slit lamp examination revealed multiple disc-shaped corneal stromal infiltrates with an overlying epithelial defect and hypopyon in both the eyes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Boundenga Larson, Origin of Two Most Virulent Agents of Human Malaria: Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax, Malaria [Working Title], 10.5772/intechopen.84481, (2019[oadoi.org]

  • Hepatitis B

    HBV infection was diagnosed using serological tests and confirmed by PCR; furthermore, we performed a pan-Plasmodium-specific-nucleic-acid-sequence-based-amplification (NASBA[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Slit-lamp examination revealed severe superior corneal thinning without infiltrate. Corneal ulceration worsened until 10% of the cornea remained.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: PCR-NASBA results confirmed that 62 of 195 subjects (31.8%) were positive for Plasmodium infection, whereas 41 of 195 subjects (21%) tested positive for HBV chronic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
