Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, School of Public Health, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Tehran, 19839-63113, Iran.

The aim of this study was to compare the safety and efficacy of primary trabeculectomy with mitomycin C and Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) implantation in patients with Fuchs heterochromic iridocyclitis (FHIC)-related glaucoma, a rare complication of an uncommon form of uveitis. s In this retrospective comparative case series, 26 FHIC-associated glaucoma patients received trabeculectomy (n=12) or an AGV (n=14). Primary outcome measures were surgical success, defined as intraocular pressure (IOP) ≤21 mmHg, decreasing ≥20% from baseline, and no secondary glaucoma surgery. Read More

Rubella virus is involved in the pathogenesis of Fuchs heterochromic uveitis and almost all cases in Europe show an active antibody production in the aqueous humor against rubella virus. Herein we report a case of a fully vaccinated patient with common variable immunodeficiency who developed unilateral Fuchs heterochromic uveitis secondary to rubella virus which was proven by intraocular fluid examination. Awareness of rubella associated anterior uveitis should remain also in vaccinated patients, especially those without a fully competent immune system. Read More

Implantation of iris-claw Artisan intraocular lens for aphakia in Fuchs' heterochromic iridocyclitis.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2014 Mar;62(3):373-4

Department of Ophthalmology, Farabi Eye Hospital, Eye Research Center, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Implantation of iris-claw Artisan intraocular lens (IOL) is a surgical option for correction of aphakia; however, these IOLs have not been used in eyes with uveitis including Fuchs' heterochromic iridocyclitis (FHI) due to possible risk of severe postoperative intraocular inflammation. In the case reported here, we secondarily implanted an Artisan IOL in a 28-year-old man with FHI who had aphakia with no capsular support due to a previous complicated cataract surgery. Enclavation was easily performed and no intraoperative complication was noted. Read More

High concordance of intraocular antibody synthesis against the rubella virus and Fuchs heterochromic uveitis syndrome in Slovenia.

Mol Vis 2012 1;18:2909-14. Epub 2012 Dec 1.

Eye Hospital, University Clinical Center Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Purpose: To prospectively study the relationship between Fuchs heterochromic uveitis syndrome (FHUS) and intraocular production of specific antibodies against the rubella virus (RV) in Slovenia.

Methods: Using the Goldmann-Witmer coefficient technique, intraocular synthesis of specific antibodies against RV, herpes simplex virus, varicella-zoster virus, cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Toxoplasma gondii-specific immunoglobulin G antibodies was performed in 12 consecutive patients with clinically diagnosed FHUS and 12 patients with idiopathic recurrent unilateral anterior uveitis (AU) without clinical features of FHUS.

Results: Specific intraocular antibody synthesis against RV with a positive Goldmann-Witmer coefficient was proven in 11 of 12 (92%) FHUS patients, and in none of the non-FHUS AU patients (Fisher's exact test <0. Read More

Department of Medical Technology, Faculty of Associated Medical Sciences, Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Aims: To assess the possible role of virus infection in patients with unexplained anterior uveitis (AU).

Methods: Intraocular fluid and plasma samples of 30 HIV-negative AU patients who were unresponsive or poorly responsive to topical steroid therapy were analyzed for nucleic acid of cytomegalovirus (CMV), herpes simplex virus (HSV), and varicella zoster virus (VZV) by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and for intraocular antibodies against these viruses by Goldmann-Witmer coefficient (GWC) analysis. Of these 30 cases, 21 were tested for rubella virus by GWC analysis, 16 of which also had PCR assessment of aqueous for rubella virus. Read More
