100 Possible Causes for Keratitis, Transillumination of the Iris, Varicella

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

    To describe the characteristics and course of late varicella-zoster virus (VZV) dendriform keratitis in patients with histories of herpes zoster ophthalmicus (HZO); to describe[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was no associated iris atrophy, no anterior chamber activity, intraocular pressure was 26 mmHg, and fundal examination of the left eye showed a cupped disc (CD 0.9)[nature.com] Acute keratitis is one of the most common of these ocular complications associated with HZO.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Uveitis

    BACKGROUND: Genetic variations have been identified in the genome of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) strains using vesicle fluid, varicella scabs and throat swab samples.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tugal–Tutkun, Onal S, Garip A et al., Bilateral acute iris transillumination, Arch Ophthalmol,2011;129(10):1312–9.[touchophthalmology.com] INTRODUCTION: Corticosteroid treatment for uveitis can lead to delayed-onset pressure-induced interlamellar stromal keratitis (PISK), even years after laser in situ keratomileusis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anterior Uveitis

    Abstract Varicella zoster virus (VZV)-induced anterior uveitis (AU) may complicate the course of primary varicella infection typically seen in children.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (BADI) and bilateral acute transillumination of the iris (BAIT), the finding of corneal endothelial pigment precipitates is a useful clue to the differential diagnosis.18,19[touchophthalmology.com] […] uveitis with fewer keratic precipitates that are brown in color and located inferiorly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Iris Atrophy

    Specifically, production of local antibodies against herpes simplex virus (HSV) and varicella zoster virus (VZV) was determined and the polymerase chain reaction was performed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Infrared transillumination stereophotography of normal iris. Can J Ophthalmol 1977 ; 12: 308 – 11. Google Scholar Medline ISI 19.[journals.sagepub.com] MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Development of cataract during management of Acanthamoeba keratitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Granulomatous Iritis

    Viral infections including herpes simplex virus (HSV), varicella zoster virus, and cytomegalovirus can lead to corneal decompensation. [5] Mutton-fat keratic precipitates[emedicine.medscape.com] (BADI) and bilateral acute transillumination of the iris (BAIT), the finding of corneal endothelial pigment precipitates is a useful clue to the differential diagnosis. 18,19[touchophthalmology.com] More than 100 herpes viruses have been characterized, but only 8 infect humans: Herpes simplex virus (HSV) 1 and 2, varicella zoster virus (VZV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), Epstein–Barr[healio.com]

  • Idiopathic anterior Uveitis

    Infection Uveitis can also be caused by an infection, such as: toxoplasmosis – an infection caused by a parasite herpes simplex virus – the virus responsible for cold sores varicella-zoster[nhs.uk] Tugal–Tutkun, Onal S, Garip A et al., Bilateral acute iris transillumination, Arch Ophthalmol,2011;129(10):1312–9.[touchophthalmology.com] Slit-lamp evaluation typically demonstrates fine, “stellate” keratic precipitates (KP).[medtextfree.wordpress.com]

  • Foreign Body in the Eye

    Retina 22(1) 33-36 2002 [Refereed] Epstein-Barr virus DNAとvaricella zoster virus DNAが検出された急性網膜壊死の1例 帯刀 真也, 木許 賢一, 八塚 秀人, 中塚 和夫 臨床眼科 55(13) 2009-2013 Dec 2001 57歳女.主訴は右眼の霧視[researchmap.jp] Examine closely for iris tears and transillumination defects, lens opacities, AC shallowing, and asymmetrically low IOP in the involved eye.[lifeinthefastlane.com] […] eye is broken, including broken bones Severe pain Chemical exposure to the eye Sensitivity to light without cause Glaucoma Recent history of corneal ulceration or herpetic keratitis[walgreens.com]

  • Fuchs' Heterochromic Iridocyclitis

    The aqueous tap was negative in all cases for varicella zoster virus (VZV), rubella virus, Toxoplasma, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis.[joii-journal.springeropen.com] Markers of severe disease and a more guarded post-operative prognosis included severe iris atrophy with transillumination defects, glaucoma, and iris vasculature abnormalities[eyewiki.aao.org] She had a tripod dendritic pattern of keratic precipitates by confocal microscopy in the left eye with a stippled pattern of keratic precipitates in both eyes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Scleromalacia

    Recurrent nodular scleritis associated with varicella zoster virus. Am J Ophthalmol 1998; 126 (4): 594–597. 9 Portnoy S, Franklin R. Scleritis. In: Ryan SJ (ed).[nature.com] There was no associated iris atrophy, no anterior chamber activity, intraocular pressure was 26 mmHg, and fundal examination of the left eye showed a cupped disc (CD 0.9)[nature.com] The disease was complicated by keratitis and resulted in an eye with light perception only. Scleral tissue from the defect was examined histologically.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Syphilitic Chorioretinitis

    Varicella zoster virus is a cause of the acute retinal necrosis syndrome. Ophthalmology. 1986;93(5):559-569.[retinalphysician.com] Early congenital syphilis, latent A50.2 Early congenital syphilis, unspecified A50.3 Late congenital syphilitic oculopathy A50.31 Late congenital syphilitic interstitial keratitis[icd10data.com] There were bilateral fine keratic precipitates and 2 and 3 cells in the right and left anterior chambers, respectively.[nature.com]
