206 Possible Causes for Transillumination of the Iris, Uveitis

  • Iris Atrophy

    Infrared transillumination stereophotography of normal iris. Can J Ophthalmol 1977 ; 12: 308 – 11 . Google Scholar Medline ISI 19.[journals.sagepub.com] […] of herpetic uveitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinically the iris would show hypopigmentation without transillumination defects. B. Iris pigment epithelial atrophy in diabetes mellitus.[entokey.com]

  • Uveitis

    Tugal–Tutkun, Onal S, Garip A et al., Bilateral acute iris transillumination, Arch Ophthalmol,2011;129(10):1312–9.[touchophthalmology.com] Depending upon the regions involved, may be classified into 3 types; namely anterior uveitis, intermediate uveitis and posterior uveitis.[symptoma.com] , ciliary body, iridocorneal angle), leading to a spectrum of iris transillumination defects, microhyphaemas and pigmentary dispersion, concomitant with elevated intraocular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ectopia Lentis

    Those patients with simple lens ectopia as well as those with ectopic lenses and pupils had striking transillumination of the iris periphery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This can cause glaucoma, uveitis, or damage to the cornea.[en.wikipedia.org] The association between ectopia lentis et pupillae and transillumination of the iris is well documented in the literature, but it has never been reported with skin hypopigmentation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anterior Uveitis

    (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] Of note, other forms of uveitis are intermediate uveitis (pars planitis and cyclitis), posterior uveitis (choroiditis), and panuveitis (inflammation of all parts of the uvea[symptoma.com] Abstract Anterior Uveitis is the most common form of uveitis. There are several known and many possible etiologies for anterior uveitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic anterior Uveitis

    Tugal–Tutkun, Onal S, Garip A et al., Bilateral acute iris transillumination, Arch Ophthalmol,2011;129(10):1312–9.[touchophthalmology.com] Anterior Uveitis – Classification Uveitis by location: Anterior Uveitis Iritis Iridocyclitis Cyclitis Intermediate Uveitis Pars planitis Posterior Uveitis Choroiditis Chorioretinities[slideshare.net] Aetiology Uveitis (anterior) Anterior uveitis (the most common form of uveitis: 75% of all cases of uveitis).[college-optometrists.org]

  • Secondary Glaucoma

    This was evidenced by characteristic transillumination defects in the iris. 3 In 1992, researchers suggested that posterior bowing of the peripheral iris was caused by reverse[reviewofoptometry.com] […] type 1 uveitis in 16.2%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] .  Gonioscopy – pigment accumulation along the Schwalbe’s line especially inferiorly (Sampaolesi’s line)  Iris transillumination – radial slit – like transillumination defects[slideshare.net]

  • Posterior Uveitis

    Corneal sensation with careful inspection of the iris for subtle transillumination defects may help identify underlying herpetic disease.[retinalphysician.com] HD can occur in the eye and can mimic posterior uveitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Corneal sensation is a useful test along with careful inspection of the iris for subtle transillumination defects, which may suggest underlying herpetic disease.[ophthalmologymanagement.com]

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

    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 PPVs for individual uveitis codes ranged from 0% to 100%, and 11 uveitis codes had a PPV exceeding 80%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Later findings may include iris transillumination defects and poor pupil reactivity.[eyeworld.org]

  • Hyphema

    Pathological studies and indirect clinical evidence, including iris transillumination defects and iris tucking, have implicated haptic-iris contact.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Uveitis sometimes causes hyphema, but severe hyphema as a complication following herpes zoster uveitis has rarely been reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Iris transillumination defects and apposition of the optic and iris were found. The patient was diagnosed with Uveitis-Glaucoma-Hyphema (UGH) Syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Granulomatous Iritis

    (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] In one community-based study, anterior uveitis accounted for more than 90% of all cases of uveitis seen.[emedicine.medscape.com] Corneal sensation is a useful test along with careful inspection of the iris for subtle transillumination defects, which may suggest underlying herpetic disease.[ophthalmologymanagement.com]
