Panuveitis

Total Uveitis


Presentation

  • At the last visit, both patients presented a quiet uveitis and stable BCVA: case 1 had 0.8 and 1.0 in the RE and the LE, respectively, while case 2 presented 1.0 in both eyes. No side effects were recorded during this time.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The purpose of this manuscript is to present a biopsy-confirmed case of cPACNS in a 9-year-old girl who presented uniquely with panuveitis and anisocoria, and emphasize the MRI features that should prompt the radiologist to suggest this rare diagnosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present the case of a 49-year-old patient who was treated with Aripriprazole in context of Paranoid Schizophrenia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This case emphasizes that clinical presentation can be atypical and that a negative viral serology does not exclude an acute or a past herpetic infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • To describe clinical presentation and results of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in seven children from an epidemic of panuveitis in the Brazilian Amazonia, as well as environmental analysis and etiological aspects involved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Recurrent Oral Ulceration
  • He gave a history of recurrent oral ulcers. The panuveitis responded to oral and topical steroids but recurred after the steroids were stopped. His ocular condition again stabilised on restarting oral steroids and azathioprine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • Short course of oral prednisone was initiated once the infectious workup returned negative. Within 4-weeks, he had complete resolution of eye symptoms, with improvement of vision and ophthalmologic examination.[aspergillus.org.uk]
  • Diagnosis, Workup, Treatment This panuveitis involved a broad differential diagnosis and collection of autoimmune and infectious serologies (Box, page 17).[retina-specialist.com]

  • Her past medical history was notable for a hospital admission due to headache, vertigo, and bilateral ocular pain; further workup revealed a lymphocytic meningitis and bilateral panuveitis, necessitating oral steroid therapy.[karger.com]

Treatment

  • The mainstay of the treatment of uveitis is corticosteroids. Immunosuppressive agents are administered if the inflammation is not adequately controlled with corticosteroids.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • METHODS: Systematic review of data provided in clinical trial registries describing clinical trials dealing with medical treatment of intermediate, posterior, or panuveitis through 01 October 2013.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The visual acuity can improve with early medical treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • With a presumptive diagnosis of suppurative endophthalmitis and a history of effective treatment with intravenous antibiotics plus ofloxacin and steroid drops, intravenous ceftazidime and vancomycin were administered.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, treatment helped to save the vision in one eye or both only if cases presented early enough (within 7 days) for treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • The long-term outcomes and prognosis of this condition are not well known.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It must be distinguished from other disorders to initiate prompt treatment and improve the patient's prognosis. The presentation of cPACNS is highly variable, making a clinical diagnosis challenging.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • An immediate medical attention is sought to achieve better outcomes The prognosis for Panuveitis Uveitis depends on each individual's signs and symptoms and may be assessed on a case-by-case basis; however, the prognosis is guarded due to the entire eye[dovemed.com]
  • Disease course and prognosis Unfortunately, recurrence is very high in MCP, and the visual prognosis remains poor. Peripapillary atrophy with progressive subretinal fibrosis results in enlargement of a blind spot in approximately 43% of patients.[imoe.it]
  • Prevention and Prognosis of Panuveitis While it can be hard to prevent panuveitis uveitis, you can lower your risk by avoiding contact with people who have infections.[belmarrahealth.com]

Etiology

  • To describe clinical presentation and results of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in seven children from an epidemic of panuveitis in the Brazilian Amazonia, as well as environmental analysis and etiological aspects involved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • More patients with bilateral disease had a non-infectious etiology ( n 82, 50.9%) ( p 0.012).[tandfonline.com]
  • The etiology of this disease is unknown so far, but it may be possible that infections with B. burgdorferi are of etiological significance. Fortschr Ophthalmol. 1989;86(6):659-62. Case Reports; English Abstract ADVERTISEMENT[prohealth.com]
  • Our suspicion of a herpetic etiology based on the lab results was growing.[retina-specialist.com]
