1 Neurology Department, Hospital Egas Moniz - Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Ocidental, Lisbon, Portugal.

Introduction Tolosa-Hunt syndrome (THS) is one of the most common 'benign' causes of painful ophthalmoplegia. Diagnosis is based on clinical and imaging findings and the exclusion of other causes because there is no specific biomarker for the syndrome. Eales disease, an idiopathic inflammatory venous disease that primarily affects the eye, can also affect the central (as stroke or myelitis) and peripheral nervous system. Read More

Background: Eales' disease is an idiopathic retinal vasculitis characterized by retinal inflammation, ischemia, and neo-vascularisation. It frequently causes massive vitreous haemorrhage and retinal detachment leading to blindness. Although the exact etiology is unknown, this condition is considered to be a consequence of hypersensitivity reaction to tubercular protein due to previous Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. Read More

Angiogenic potential of vitreous from Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy and Eales' Disease patients.

PLoS One 2014 13;9(10):e107551. Epub 2014 Oct 13.

Department of Immunology and Cell Biology, Aravind Medical Research Foundation, Dr.G.Venkataswamy Eye Research Institute, Madurai, India.

Purpose: Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (PDR) and Eales' Disease (ED) have different aetiologies although they share certain common clinical symptoms including pre-retinal neovascularization. Since there is a need to understand if the shared end-stage angiogenic pathology of PDR and ED is driven by common stimulating factors, we have studied the cytokines contained in vitreous from both patient groups and analyzed the angiogenic potential of these samples in vitro.

Material And Methods: Vitreous samples from patients with PDR (n = 13) and ED (n = 5) were quantified for various cytokines using a cytokine biochip array and sandwich ELISA. Read More

Tubercular retinal vasculitis.

BMJ Case Rep 2013 Jun 3;2013. Epub 2013 Jun 3.

Department of Ophthalmology, Hospital de Egas Moniz, Lisbon, Portugal.

Intraocular tuberculosis (TB) infection can have different clinical manifestations including retinal vasculitis. It more frequently involves the veins and is associated with retina haemorrhages and neovascularisation. The diagnosis may be difficult and presumptive being based on clinical findings and evidence of systemic TB infection. Read More

Eales' disease - current concepts in diagnosis and management.

J Ophthalmic Inflamm Infect 2013 Jan 14;3(1):11. Epub 2013 Jan 14.

Department of Uveitis and Ocular Pathology, Vision Research Foundation, Sankara Nethralaya, No, 41, College Road, Nungambakkam, Chennai, 600006, India.

Eales' disease, first described by the British ophthalmologist Henry Eales in 1880, is characterized by three overlapping stages of venous inflammation (vasculitis), occlusion, and retinal neovascularization. Diagnosis is mostly clinical and requires exclusion of other systemic or ocular conditions that could present with similar retinal features. In recent years, immunological, molecular biological, and biochemical studies have indicated the role of human leukocyte antigen, retinal autoimmunity, Mycobacterium tuberculosis genome, and free radical-mediated damage in the etiopathogenesis of this disease.

Profiling of human leukocyte antigens in Eales disease and tuberculosis.

Int Ophthalmol 2013 Oct 6;33(5):475-9. Epub 2013 Feb 6.

Department of Ophthalmology, The Affiliated Hospital of Zunyi Medical College, Zunyi, 563003, China,

To analyze the association between Eales disease, histocompatibility leukocyte antigen alleles (HLA-A/B, HLA-DRB/DQB) and tuberculosis infection, and to explore susceptible genes and protective genes associated with Eales disease and tuberculosis infection in a population of Han nationals from Zunyi City in Guizhou Province, China. The subjects were analyzed by a case-control study consisting of three groups--Eales disease group (47 cases), pulmonary tuberculosis group (36 cases) and normal control group (100 cases). The Eales disease group was divided into four parts. Read More

Vitreopapillary and vitreomacular traction in proliferative Eales' disease.

BMJ Case Rep 2012 Oct 29;2012. Epub 2012 Oct 29.

Department of Ophthalmology, CSM Medical University (Erstwhile King George's Medical University), Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Vitreoretinal interface alterations leading to vitreopapillary and vitreomacular traction in a 29-year case of proliferative Eales' disease is described for the first time. On fundus examination, an ellipsoid area of vitreomacular traction was noted temporal to the optic disc. A triangular-shaped infolding of the retina was observed superior to the fovea. Read More

Quantitative polymerase chain reaction for Mycobacterium tuberculosis in so-called Eales' disease.

Ocul Immunol Inflamm 2012 Jun 9;20(3):153-7. Epub 2012 Apr 9.

Advanced Eye Centre, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Purpose: To report mycobacterial load in the vitreous of patients labeled as having Eales' disease.

Methods: Eighty-eight patients were prospectively enrolled into 3 groups: 28 patients with so-called Eales' disease (group A); 30 positive controls with specific uveitis syndromes (group B), and 30 negative controls (group C). The undiluted vitreous humor samples were collected and subjected to real-time PCR assay for MPB64 gene of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) and load quantified. Read More
