Herpetic keratitis and keratouveitis after mitomycin-C use in glaucoma filtering surgery: a short case series.
Eur J Ophthalmol. 2009 Nov-Dec; 19(6):1088-90.EJ

Abstract

PURPOSE

We report 4 eyes of 3 patients with presumed herpetic keratitis/keratouveitis after glaucoma surgery wherein intraoperative mitomycin-C was used.

METHODS

Three patients, aged 18-75 years, were found to have unilateral or bilateral herpetic keratitis and/or keratouveitis, 15 days to 2 years after trabeculectomy with mitomycin-C.

RESULTS

All 3 cases healed without any sequelae after 4 to 6 weeks with topical and/or systemic acyclovir. Topical steroids were used in cases with stromal involvement.

CONCLUSIONS

Mitomycin-C may predispose/facilitate development of herpetic keratitis/keratouveitis up to 2 years after glaucoma surgery.
