  • Cytomegalovirus-related uncontrolled glaucoma in an immunocompetent patient: a case report and systematic review. [Case Reports]
  • BOBMC Ophthalmol 2018 Sep 29; 18(1):259

  • CONCLUSIONS: CMV infection is not rare. Patients have unilateral mild anterior inflammation with relapsed attacks of elevated intraocular pressure should be considered for CMV infection. We found that concurrent use of systemic and topical ganciclovir in a short period could reduce ocular CMV significantly, while ocular hypertension recurred. The antiviral treatment should be individualized. Glaucoma surgery could be offered to protect CEC loss and glaucomatous damage.
  • Herpetic eye disease study: lessons learned. [Review]
  • COCurr Opin Ophthalmol 2018; 29(4):340-346

  • CONCLUSIONS: HEDS established the standard of HSV ocular therapy and is still valid today. However, newer antivirals may provide easier compliance with improved bioavailability, efficacy, dosage, and tolerability. Further research is needed to prevent latency of HSV, decrease recurrences, and more effectively treat necrotizing keratitis associated with HSV.
  • Herpes zoster ophthalmicus: acute keratitis. [Review]
  • COCurr Opin Ophthalmol 2018; 29(4):328-333
  • Li JY
  • CONCLUSIONS: Acute zoster keratitis can lead to permanent vision loss. Early diagnosis and management may help reduce these potentially devastating complications. Oral and topical antiviral medications can play a role in managing the acute disease, and herpes zoster vaccinations are important for prevention of disease. Further research must be done to establish standards for treatment of anterior segment complications from herpes zoster.
  • Adenoviral keratitis: a review of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and management. [Review]
  • COCurr Opin Ophthalmol 2018; 29(4):365-372
  • Omari AA, Mian SI
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although significant effort has been made to develop new methods for diagnosis and management, adenoviral keratitis is predominantly diagnosed clinically with prevention being the mainstay of management. The use of newer DNA analysis techniques and topical anti-inflammatory agents for treatment of corneal infiltrates show promising results, but a better understanding of the pathogenesis and clinical features can lead to more targeted methods of diagnosis and therapy.
  • Surgical management of herpetic keratitis. [Review]
  • COCurr Opin Ophthalmol 2018; 29(4):347-354
  • Tuli S, Gray M, Shah A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Several options are available for surgically managing the complications of herpes keratitis. Ophthalmologists should select the optimal procedure based on the individual patient's situation. VIDEO ABSTRACT:
