Tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis syndrome is a rare and probably underdiagnosed condition. Renal and ocular manifestations may not occur simultaneously, making the diagnosis more difficult. Nephritis may be asymptomatic; therefore, renal function evaluation is essential for diagnosis. Read More

Posner-Schlossman syndrome.

Surv Ophthalmol 2017 May - Jun;62(3):277-285. Epub 2016 Dec 22.

Princess Alexandra Eye Pavilion, Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

Posner-Schlossman syndrome, or glaucomatocyclitic crisis, is a unilateral ocular condition characterized by recurrent attacks of nongranulomatous anterior uveitis and raised intraocular pressure that can result in chronic secondary glaucoma. This relatively rare disease is most likely the result of recurrent cytomegalovirus infection and affects predominantly middle-aged males. Diagnosis is largely clinical, with aqueous and blood sampling aiding the identification of any underlying infectious cause. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, Miguel Servet University Hospital, Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria de Aragón IIS-A, Zaragoza, Spain.

Extraintestinal manifestations are common in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), being reported in over 25% of patients. Ocular complications of IBD occur in around 10% of cases, but may precede systemic symptoms and are usually nonspecific. Complications of therapy, such as cataracts or glaucoma from steroid use or keratoconjunctivitis sicca related to 5-aminosalicylic acid medications, may also involve the eyes. Read More

Ocul Immunol Inflamm 2013 Dec 19;21(6):478-85. Epub 2013 Aug 19.

John A. Moran Eye Center, Salt Lake City , Utah , USA .

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most common childhood rheumatic disease and the most prevalent systemic disorder in children with uveitis. The risk of developing uveitis is the greatest among patients with oligoarticular onset of disease. Clinical features of JIA-associated uveitis (JIAU) are nongranulomatous inflammation, anterior in location, insidious at onset, chronic course, and frequently asymptomatic in the absence of ocular structural complications.

J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus 2009 Oct 2. Epub 2009 Oct 2.

A 10-year-old boy with biopsy-proven systemic mastocytosis presented with bilateral nongranulomatous anterior uveitis associated with high intraocular pressure. Anterior chamber paracentesis was performed for cytological evaluation, which demonstrated monocytes and macrophages but no evidence of mast cells. His uveitis was partially controlled with frequent topical steroid drops and weekly oral methotrexate therapy. Read More

Evaluating the cost-effectiveness of anterior uveitis investigation by Canadian ophthalmologists.

Can J Ophthalmol 2008 Dec;43(6):652-7

Department of Ophthalmology and Vision Sciences, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ont.

Background: To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of anterior uveitis investigation by Canadian ophthalmologists and to assess the role of implementing national clinical guidelines for such investigation.

Methods: Based on data extracted from the Canadian National Uveitis Survey (CNUS, 2007 version), the cost of investigating a patient with anterior uveitis, according to current practice patterns of Canadian ophthalmologists, was determined and grouped across 4 clinical scenarios: (i) nongranulomatous anterior uveitis in an adult, (ii) granulomatous anterior uveitis in an adult, (iii) granulomatous anterior uveitis with suspected sarcoidosis in an adult or a child, and (iv) nongranulomatous anterior uveitis in a child. Similarly, the cost of investigating a patient with anterior uveitis as per published evidence-based guidelines was determined and compared with the current practice pattern using a cost-minimization model, sensitivity analyses, and Monte Carlo simulations.

An eye on inflammatory eye disease.

Authors:
P G Kestelyn

Acta Clin Belg 2005 Sep-Oct;60(5):270-5

Afdeling Oogheelkunde, Universitair Ziekenhuis, Gent.

The purpose of this article is to outline the interaction between ophthalmologists and internists in the management of uveitis. Two issues will be addressed: 1) which strategies should the internist follow when asked to investigate a case of uveitis; and 2) in which systemic diseases should the internist order an ocular examination to rule out intraocular inflammation. The modern approach to the diagnosis of uveitis is based on the naming-meshing system popularized by Smith and Nozik. Read More
