Remission Of Non-Infectious Anterior Scleritis: Incidence And Predictive Factors.

Am J Ophthalmol 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Department of Ophthalmology, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD; Department of Epidemiology, The Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, MD.

Purpose: To assess how often non-infectious anterior scleritis remits and identify predictive factors.

Methods: Our retrospective cohort study at four ocular inflammation subspecialty centers collected data for each affected eye/patient at every visit from center inception (1978, 1978, 1984, 2005) until 2010. Remission was defined as inactivity of disease off all suppressive medications at all visits spanning at least three consecutive months or at all visits up to the last visit (to avoid censoring patients stopping follow-up after remission).

Identification of susceptibility SNPs in CTLA-4 and PTPN22 for scleritis in Han Chinese.

Clin Exp Immunol 2019 Mar 28. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Department of Ophthalmology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University, Henan Province Eye Hospital, Henan International Joint Research Laboratory for Ocular Immunology and Retinal Injury Repair, Zhengzhou, China.

The aim of this study was to determine the association between 13 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated antigen-4 (CTLA4) and protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor type 22 (PTPN22) genes with scleritis in a Chinese Han population. We recruited 432 scleritis patients and 710 healthy controls. Four tag SNPs of CTLA4 and nine tag SNPs of PTPN22 were selected using Haploview. Read More

Treatment of chronic non-infectious uveitis and scleritis.

Swiss Med Wkly 2019 02 10;149:w20025. Epub 2019 Mar 10.

Jules-Gonin Eye Hospital, Fondation Asile des Aveugles, Ophthalmology Department, University of Lausanne, Switzerland.

Ocular inflammations such as uveitis and scleritis can lead to significant visual impairment if not treated properly. To limit potentially sight-threatening complications, good control of the inflammation in the acute phase is necessary. Corticosteroids have been the mainstay of ocular therapies for many years, but high doses of corticosteroids, which are required to maintain quiescence in severe uveitis, can be associated with many systemic and ocular complications.

Corneal and scleral involvement in inflammatory rheumatic disease: Rheumatologists and ophthalmologists exchanging views.

Joint Bone Spine 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Inserm UMR 1125, 1, rue de Chablis, 93017 Bobigny, France; Service de rhumatologie, assistance publique-Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP), groupe hospitalier Avicenne Jean-Verdier-René-Muret, 125, rue de Stalingrad, 93017 Bobigny, France.

Corneal and scleral disorders related to inflammatory rheumatic diseases vary both in frequency and in severity. Sicca syndrome and its complications are the most common ocular manifestations and, together with episcleritis, can usually be managed by topical treatments. In contrast, the various forms of scleritis and peripheral ulcerative keratitis generally require systemic glucocorticoid therapy and the initiation or intensification of immunosuppressive treatment.

Sjögren's Syndrome: More Than Just Dry Eye.

Cornea 2019 May;38(5):658-661

Department of Health Services, Policy, and Practice, Center for Evidence Synthesis in Health, Brown University School of Public Health, Providence, RI.

Purpose: Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a common autoimmune disease affecting about four million Americans. Although approximately 1 in 10 patients with clinically-significant aqueous deficient dry eye has underlying SS, widespread underappreciation of SS leads to significant underdiagnosis, delays in diagnosis, and consequent morbidity and mortality. The purpose of this article is to illustrate that in addition to dry eye, SS can cause serious, vision-threatening extraglandular ocular manifestations. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL) is a rare and aggressive T-cell malignancy with a high mortality rate, resulting in a lack of information among ophthalmologists. Here, we investigated the state of ophthalmic medical care for ATL and ATL-related ocular manifestations by conducting the first large-scale nationwide survey in Japan. A total of 115 facilities were surveyed, including all university hospitals in Japan that were members of the Japanese Ophthalmological Society and regional core facilities that were members of the Japanese Ocular Inflammation Society.

Drug-induced uveitis.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2018 Nov;29(6):588-603

The Department of Ophthalmology, California Pacific Medical Center, San Francisco.

Purpose Of Review: Nearly one-half of all uveitis cases seen at tertiary referral centers have no identifiable cause. Many systemic, paraocular, intraocular, topical medications, and even vaccines can induce intraocular inflammation, scleritis, and rarely orbititis and are often overlooked as causes of uveitis. This review was undertaken to elucidate the strength of association of these medications with uveitis and to make clinicians aware of these associations, especially among newer medications.
