357 Possible Causes for Episcleritis, Sinusitis

  • 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]

  • Microscopic Polyangiitis

    ., sinusitis) frequently seen in people affected by GPA.[en.wikipedia.org] MPA can have conjunctival, episcleral, scleral, and corneal manifestations.[omicsonline.org] In general, AAV affects the sinuses, kidneys, lungs, and skin, but the ways the diseases show themselves vary.[rituxanforgpampa.com]

  • Sweet Syndrome

    Her course of disease was complicated by arthralgias, episcleritis, headaches, and erythema nodosum-like subcutaneous involvement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 24 h, computed tomography (CT) was arranged of the orbits, paranasal sinuses, and brain in order to exclude orbital cellulitis, subperiosteal abscess, cavernous sinus[nature.com] We report two additional cases of ocular involvement, one with conjunctivitis and a second with iritis, peripheral ulcerative keratitis, and episcleritis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    Thrombosis of the cerebral veins and sinuses affects mainly young adults and children.[nejm.org] Congestion of orbital venous drainage results in elevated episcleral venous and intraocular pressure, which can compromise vision.[eyewiki.aao.org] (dark blue), and sigmoid sinuses (yellow).[slideshare.net]

  • Orbital Cellulitis

    We report a case of invasive fungal sinusitis caused by Scopulariopsis in 57 year-old man who had recurrence of orbital cellulitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Systemic autoimmune diseases are associated with ocular inflammatory conditions such as episcleritis, scleritis, keratitis, and uveitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ocular manifestations occur secondary to an adjacent granulomatous sinusitis or as a result of focal vasculitis  The nasolacrimal duct may be obstructed and there may be episcleritis[slideshare.net]

  • Felty's Syndrome

    Eye symptoms (including dry eyes and irritation due to Sjögren's syndrome and red and painful eyes due to episcleritis).[patient.info] Necrotizing sinusitis and saddle nose deformity were distinctive clinical features.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A computed tomography of the middle ears, paranasal sinuses, and chest was normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    […] rheumatoid nodules are usually seen in pressure areas: elbows, occiput, lumbosacral 3 occurs in RF-positive patients 9 ocular involvement keratoconjunctivitis sicca uveitis episcleritis[radiopaedia.org] Screws are usually not placed above the inion to avoid the intracranial venous sinuses.[emedicine.medscape.com] RA is a systemic disease and there are other manifestations of the disease: Eyes: secondary Sjögren's syndrome, scleritis and episcleritis.[patient.info]

  • Carotid Cavernous Sinus Fistula

    We assumed that local maxillary sinusitis caused by dental implant might spread hematogenously into the sphenoid and cavernous sinuses and formed a carotid cavernous sinus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] approach to assess episcleral vasculature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Compartmentalization of the cavernous sinus precluded access to the fistula via the cerebral venous sinuses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Crohn's Disease

    Immune-mediated diseases that are frequently associated with Crohn's disease include arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, sacroiliitis, episcleritis, uveitis, and skin lesions[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Complications include extra-intestinal involvement, intestinal obstruction, abscess formation, sinuses, and fistulae.[bestpractice.bmj.com] Episcleritis and uveitis are the principal eye presentations.[symptoma.com]

  • Churg-Strauss Syndrome

    Ophthalmologic findings showed episcleritis. Radiography of the chest and paranasal sinuses revealed no abnormalities.[jamanetwork.com] Further tests verified pulmonary infiltrates, paranasal sinusitis, extravascular eosinophils on histopathologic sample of skin tissue, and polyneuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Children commonly have a history of asthma and sinusitis whilst clinical presentation typically involves pulmonary tract and less frequently skin, heart, gastrointestinal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
