Cystinosis is a rare autosomal recessive disease with an incidence of approximately 1 case per 100,000-200,000 live births. Over the years, gaining in-depth knowledge of the disease has led to vast improvement in patient life expectancy. However, debilitating, extra-renal manifestations such as eye disease, in particular corneal crystal deposition and its associated photophobia, still occur frequently, regardless of patient age and notwithstanding the increased implementation of systemic therapy.

Ocular findings in patients with alopecia areata: role of ultra-wide-field retinal imaging.

Immunol Res 2014 Dec;60(2-3):356-60

Ophthalmology Department, Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, School of Medicine, Universitat de Barcelona, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain,

Alopecia areata is understood as an autoimmune disease T cell-mediated mainly involving hair follicles in humans. It is a multifactorial aetiologic disease characterised by non-scarring alopecia and asymptomatic areas, affecting approximately 2 % of dermatology patients. Recent studies suggest that the pathogenesis of AA plays an important role in the association of certain HLA groups, neuroendocrine parameters and immunogenic factors. Read More
