Diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis: review article.

J Ophthalmic Inflamm Infect 2019 Dec 27;9(1):23. Epub 2019 Dec 27.

Research Laboratory of Infectious Diseases in Ophthalmology, National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis (DUSN) is an ocular infectious disease that can lead to severe visual impairment and blindness. It usually occurs in healthy young individuals and depending on the stage of the disease, it may present as vitritis, multifocal gray-white lesions in the outer retina, and derangement of the retinal pigment epithelium, narrowing of the retinal vessels and optic atrophy. Parasites of different sizes and species have been proposed as the etiologic agent of DUSN, including Ancylostoma caninum, Toxocara canis, and others. Read More

Department of Comparative Pathobiology, Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA.

Baylisascaris procyonis, the raccoon roundworm, infects a wide range of vertebrate animals, including humans, in which it causes a particularly severe type of larva migrans. It is an important cause of severe neurologic disease (neural larva migrans [NLM]) but also causes ocular disease (OLM; diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis [DUSN]), visceral larva migrans (VLM), and covert/asymptomatic infections. B. Read More

Baylisascaris procyonis is a roundworm of the raccoon found primarily in North America but also known to occur in other parts of the world including South America, Europe, and Japan. Migration of the larvae of this parasite is recognized as a cause of clinical neural larva migrans (NLM) in humans, primarily children. It is manifested as meningoencephalitis associated with marked eosinophilia of the cerebrospinal fluid and peripheral blood. Read More

Baylisascaris procyonis in raccoons (Procyon lotor) from eastern Colorado, an area of undefined prevalence.

Vet Parasitol 2012 Apr 7;185(2-4):330-4. Epub 2011 Nov 7.

Colorado State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, Fort Collins, CO 80523, USA.

Baylisascaris procyonis is a zoonotic parasite that has been documented in raccoons throughout much of the United States; however, no published information on its occurrence is available for the transition zone from the Great Plains to the Rocky Mountains. Because this parasite can cause neural larva migrans and diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis in humans (as well as other hosts), a more complete understanding of the distribution of this parasite seems warranted for public health reasons. The purpose of this study was to begin to fill in the gaps in our knowledge of the distribution of B. Read More

Intraretinal worm documented by optical coherence tomography in a patient with diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis: case report.

Arq Bras Oftalmol 2010 Sep-Oct;73(5):462-3

Hospital das Clínicas, Universidade de São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Our purpose is to report a case of diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis (DUSN) in which an ophthalmoscopically visible worm was found and optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans allowed the precise localization of the parasite in the intraretinal layers. Our findings suggest that the parasite moves in the inner portions of the retina possibly explaining the severe degenerative neural changes that it causes. Read More

Ocular parasitic diseases: a review on toxocariasis and diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis.

J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus 2011 Jul-Aug;48(4):204-12. Epub 2010 Jul 22.

Parasitic infections may damage various ocular tissues, thereby causing visual dysfunction. In 1950, Wilder described the first case in which larval forms of nematodal intestinal roundworms (Ascaridoidea: Ascaris, Toxocara, Ancylostoma, Necator, and Strongyloides) were implicated as a cause of intraocular disease. This review focuses on two disorders associated with parasitic infections: ocular toxocariasis and diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis. Read More

Narayana Nethralaya Super Speciality Eye Hospital, Post Graduate Institute of Ophthalmology, 121/C, Chord Road, Rajajinagar, Bangalore-560010, India.

Diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis (DUSN) can be a diagnostic dilemma. Laser photocoagulation of the subretinal worm is an effective treatment for eradication. Early laser photocoagulation has been advocated. Read More

Diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis in the United Kingdom.

Int Ophthalmol 2010 Oct 25;30(5):615-9. Epub 2010 Mar 25.

Moorfields Eye Hospital, 162 City Road, London, EC1V 2PD, UK.

We describe the first two cases of diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis (DUSN) in the UK successfully treated with albendazole. Two patients are described who presented with unilateral reduction in vision, with clusters of yellow-white retinal lesions fading and reappearing in new locations of the fundus over a period of weeks. Based on the clinical picture, the diagnosis of DUSN was made, even though no subretinal worm could be found. Read More

Hookworms of dogs and cats as agents of cutaneous larva migrans.

Trends Parasitol 2010 Apr 25;26(4):162-7. Epub 2010 Feb 25.

Department of Microbiology and Immunology, College of Veterinary Medicine, Cornell University, Campus Road, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA.

Dogs and cats are hosts to hookworms that may cause zoonotic disease, most notably, cutaneous larva migrans. Ancylostoma braziliense is most often implicated in dermatological lesions, and Ancylostoma caninum has been associated with eosinophilic enteritis and suggested as a possible cause of diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis in humans. Other manifestations include eosinophilic pneumonitis, localized myositis, folliculitis, erythema multiforme, or ophthalmological manifestations. Read More

Baylisascaris Procyonis Induced Diffuse Unilateral Subacute Neuroretinitis in New York City.

J Neuroparasitology 2010 Jan;1

Division of Ophthalmology, Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY, USA.

Diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis (DUSN) secondary to raccoon roundworm (Baylisascaris procyonis) infection has been reported in rural and suburban areas of North America and Europe with extant raccoon populations. Here, we present a case of Baylisascaris-induced DUSN from the densely populated borough of Brooklyn in New York City and alert urban ophthalmologists to consider this etiology even in areas not typically thought to be associated with endemic risk factors. Infected raccoons also occur in urban settings, and urban patients may be exposed in surrounding areas. Read More

Optic coherence tomography in a patient with diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis.

Arq Bras Oftalmol 2009 Mar-Apr;72(2):185-8

Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte, Natal, RN, Brazil.
