  • Terrien marginal degeneration. [Review]
    Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Mar - Apr; 64(2):162-174Ding Y, Murri MS, … Moshirfar M
  • Terrien marginal degeneration, a rare disease resulting in peripheral corneal thinning, commonly occurs in middle-aged males and usually manifests clinically with decreased visual acuity from increased corneal astigmatism. Although the exact etiology is unknown, hypotheses focus on possible degenerative and inflammatory origins. Histopathologic studies often reveal characteristic findings of innu…
  • Etiology and failure analysis of anterior lamellar keratoplasty. [Journal Article]
    Int J Ophthalmol 2018; 11(5):786-790Wang Z, Tan XJ, … Xie LX
  • CONCLUSIONS: Infectious keratitis and keratoconus are the main indications for ALK, of which fungal keratitis was the major cause of corneal infections. Recurrence of primary disease is the main reason of graft failure after ALK, in which the main primary diseases associated with graft failure are Mooren's ulcer and fungal keratitis.
  • Case report: bilateral Mooren ulcer in association with hepatitis C. [Case Reports]
    BMC Ophthalmol 2017; 17(1):239Aaltonen V, Alavesa M, … Al-Juhaish M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Whether the immunomodulatory and immunosuppressive medication against hepatitis C was the key reason for the good results in the treatment of the second eye, remains elusive. The causality of hepatitis C with respect to the pathogenesis of Mooren ulcer on this patient remains open, but should be considered as one of the possible etiological factors of the disease.
  • Unusual Case of Acute Corneal Hydrops in Mooren's Ulcer Treated with Intracameral Injection of Perfluoropropane. [Case Reports]
    Middle East Afr J Ophthalmol 2017 Apr-Jun; 24(2):106-108Acharya M, Dave A, Mathur U
  • A 15-year-old boy was diagnosed with Mooren's ulcer in the right eye at our cornea clinic. On treatment, he developed acute corneal hydrops, and the vision in the right eye dropped to perception of light. The patient was treated with intracameral injection of perfluoropropane (C3F8) gas which resulted in complete resolution of corneal edema. Contact lens fitting yielded a good visual outcome with…
  • Clinical course and outcomes in patients with Mooren ulcer who had cataract surgery. [Journal Article]
    J Cataract Refract Surg 2017; 43(8):1044-1049Das S, Mohamed A, Sangwan VS
  • CONCLUSIONS: With adequate immunosuppression, cataract surgery in eyes with Mooren ulcer was safe and CDVA improved significantly with no disease reactivation immediately after surgery. No proven role of maintenance immunosuppression was observed. The type of cataract surgery had no influence on ulcer reactivation. Patients with a disease-free interval of 6 months or more before surgery and those who had scleral incisions had favorable outcomes.
  • Mooren Ulcer in a Child Wearing Orthokeratology Contact Lenses. [Case Reports]
    Eye Contact Lens 2018; 44(4):e13-e15Kim J, Kim MK, … Oh JY
  • CONCLUSIONS: Mooren ulcer can develop in pediatric patients wearing orthokeratology contact lenses. Given rapid progression of Mooren ulcer in a young population, early diagnosis and proper treatment are essential to prevent a devastating outcome.
  • Mooren's ulcer: 30 years of follow-up. [Case Reports]
    Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2016; 91(7):337-40Vilaplana F, Temprano J, … Barraquer J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Mooren's ulcer is an immunological corneal disease. This lesion must be treated initially with immunomodulators. Surgical treatment should be considered when a risk of corneal perforation is present, when the perforation appears, or under acute necrosis.
