267 Possible Causes for Hypopyon, Uveitis

  • Tuberculosis

    The infiltrates along with the ulcer and anterior uveitis responded dramatically to the revised treatment and resolved completely within 7 days of therapy.[] Uveitis caused by TB is the local inflammatory manifestation of a previously acquired primary systemic tubercular infection.[] Slit lamp examination revealed multiple disc-shaped corneal stromal infiltrates with an overlying epithelial defect and hypopyon in both the eyes.[]

  • Behçet Disease

    It is of unknown etiology and characterized by mucocutaneous ulceration in the mouth and genital region and uveitis with hypopyon.[] , with particular success in Behçet disease-associated uveitis.[] Ocular symptoms include posterior uveitis , iridocyclitis, a transient hypopyon (pus in the anterior chamber of the eye), iritis, and chorioretinitis (inflammation of the[]

  • Uveitis

    Depending upon the regions involved, may be classified into 3 types; namely anterior uveitis, intermediate uveitis and posterior uveitis.[] […] history of recurrent anterior uveitis in the right eye, who underwent panretinal laser photocoagulation (PRP) for the retinopathy in both eyes, following which he developed hypopyon[] We report a case of an elderly woman with congenital rubella who presented with epithelial downgrowth (EDG) masquerading as hypopyon uveitis.[]

  • Reiter's Syndrome

    We describe the case of an acute anterior uveitis (AAU) and reactive arthritis following a gastrointestinal infection of Salmonella typhimurium in a 9-year-old girl.[] 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[] During follow-up, the ocular complications included conjunctivitis (96%), anterior uveitis (92%), posterior uveitis (64%), keratitis (64%), cataract (56%), intermediate uveitis[]

  • Autoimmune Disease

    […] lacrimal glands, optic neuropathy Wegener's granulomatosis Proptosis/exophthalmos, orbital cellulitis, uveitis, corneal ulcers, optic neuropathy Behçet's syndrome Uveitis, hypopyon[] Even more uveitis treatments are on the horizon.[] Its symptoms are: Redness of the eye; Blurred vision; Photophobia or sensitivity to light; Irregular pupil; Eye pain Related Journals of Autoimmune Uveitis Innate Immunity[]

  • Scleritis and Episcleritis

    External Inspection / Eyelids 12 Abnormal Eyelid Position Or Function 4 Entropion Ectropion Ptosis Lagophthalmos Chalazion Trichiasis Conjunctivitis Pterygium Corneal Arcus Hypopyon[] The PPVs for individual uveitis codes ranged from 0% to 100%, and 11 uveitis codes had a PPV exceeding 80%.[] […] degenerative myopia ( H44.2 ) H15.9 Disorder of sclera, unspecified H16 Keratitis H16.0 Corneal ulcer Ulcer: · corneal: · NOS · central · marginal · perforated · ring · with hypopyon[]

  • Muckle Wells Syndrome

    Figure 1 Left eye demonstrating hypopyon. References 1. . (accessed in September 2006). 2.[] One of those patient was a 17 year old girl who had recurrent uveitis with hypopyon which necessiated the use of intravitreal dexamethasone implant.[] Additionally, eye pathology such as conjunctivitis, uveitis, and episcleritis are observed in these patients.[]

  • CINCA Syndrome

    Examination of her right eye by slit lamp biomicroscopy showed diffuse conjunctival injection, corneal infiltrates, a corneal ulcer, and hypopyon.[] Posterior uveitis accounts for about half of all cases of childhood uveitis and the etiology may be determined in about two thirds of cases.[] Sensorineural involvement includes inflammatory ocular manifestations (uveitis, papillary involvement and optical neuritis, which can lead to blindness) and often progressive[]

  • Chorioretinitis

    When the condition is progressing, the involvement of the anterior segment can lead to various pathological alterations, such as miosis, corneal edema, cataract, and hypopyon[] This case suggests uveitis in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis can be associated with chorioretinitis.[] Toxoplasma chorioretinitis is a leading cause of infectious posterior uveitis worldwide.[]

  • 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[] 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.[]
