A viral aetiology should be suspected when anterior uveitis is accompanied by ocular hypertension, diffuse stellate keratic precipitates or the presence of iris atrophy. The most common viruses associated with anterior uveitis include herpes simplex virus, varicella-zoster virus, cytomegalovirus and rubella virus. They may present as the following: Firstly, granulomatous cluster of small and medium-sized keratic precipitates in Arlt's triangle, with or without corneal scars, suggestive of herpes simplex or varicella-zoster virus infection.

Purpose Of Review: This review highlights recent studies that have increasingly implicated cytomegalovirus (CMV) as a significant cause of keratouveitis and retinitis in immunocompetent hosts.
Recent Findings: Molecular testing has identified that CMV infection is frequently present in cases of Posner-Schlossman and Fuchs, keratouveitis syndromes previously presumed to be idiopathic conditions. Ocular hypertension and endothelial cell loss are important complications of CMV keratouveitis and are likely mediated by viral invasion of the trabecular meshwork and corneal endothelium. Read More

The Posner-Schlossman syndrome (PSS) is an elusive disease that can lead to serious consequences such as glaucomatous damage. Deep sclerectomy has been proven thus far to be the most effective surgical intervention to keep intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation under control compared with other surgical techniques, because it presents the least amount of postoperative complications. The aim of this case report is to demonstrate the efficacy of deep sclerectomy with T-Flux and the long-lasting effects that persist after 7 years in an eye affected by PSS. Read More
