  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    Most common ophthalmic manifestations were orbital masses, episcleritis/conjunctivitis, and scleritis (74/226, 32/226, and 12/226, respectively).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CT of the sinuses showed severe mucosal thickening.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Like episcleritis it has a tendency to recur.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    Gamma globulins are increased in one-third of patients. 37 Serum complement, which behaves as an acute phase reactant, is normal or increased.[reliasmedia.com] Using these anti-inf lammatory effects, Macs have successful treated pathologies such as diffuse panbronchiolitis and sinusitis.[kjim.org] Ocular inflammation presented as episcleritis, scleritis, or anterior uveitis, and it emerged during the tapering of low-dose prednisolone prescribed for polymyalgia rheumatica[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatoid Arteritis

    Examples of tissues used for biopsy include skin, sinuses, lung, nerve, and kidney.[medicinenet.com] A 76-year-old male with a severely deforming rheumatoid arthritis, eosinophilia, polymyositis, and episcleritis developed a transient tonic pupil.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The episcleritis, and a muscle biopsy revealing an occlusive arteritis with eosinophilia, suggest that a wide-spread rheumatoid arteritis caused a reversible ischemic insult[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Joint Tuberculosis

    Chemotherapy combining streptomycin and dihydrostreptomycin with isonicotinic acid hydrazid and para-aminosalicylic acid is of extreme value in the eradication of draining sinuses[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with TB may have hypersensitivity phenomena like erythema nodosum, episcleritis, uveitis and Poncet’s arthritis.[omicsonline.org] METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 12 patients with sacroiliac joint tuberculosis with chronic sinuses treated between January 2005 and January 2010 was conducted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
