  • Methotrexate for the treatment of noninfectious scleritis. [Journal Article]
  • CJCan J Ophthalmol 2018; 53(4):349-353
  • Sands DS, Chan SCY, Gottlieb CC
  • CONCLUSIONS: The treatment of noninfectious scleritis with methotrexate appears to be effective at both achieving steroid-sparing success and controlling inflammation during 12 months of therapy. Immunosuppression load decreased significantly over 12 months of therapy while best corrected visual acuity was stable.
  • Dengue fever-associated necrotizing scleritis: A case report with long-term follow-up. [Journal Article]
  • MMedicine (Baltimore) 2018; 97(32):e11875
  • Kamoi K, Mochizuki M, Ohno-Matsui K
  • CONCLUSIONS: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of dengue fever-associated necrotizing scleritis with long-term follow-up. This case suggests the existence of a long-term immune-mediated mechanism during the development of the dengue fever-associated necrotizing scleritis. Dengue fever virus patients found to have red eyes need to be carefully followed and treated, as these eyes might develop thinning of the sclera that could lead to rupture of the globe, thereby resulting in blindness.
  • Characteristics of inflammatory eye disease associated with hidradenitis suppurativa. [Journal Article]
  • EJEur J Rheumatol 2018 Jun 22; :1-4
  • Saygın D, Syed AU, … Hajj-Ali RA
  • CONCLUSIONS: One-third of the patients with HS and IED did not have any autoimmune or inflammatory comorbidity that could explain the eye involvement. The potential association between HS and IED might be a manifestation of a common immune dysregulation phenomenon. Furthermore, the management of IED required an escalation of therapy to systemic immunosuppressive agents in 70% of patients with HS.
  • Necrotizing Scleritis after Cosmetic Conjunctivectomy with Mitomycin C. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Ophthalmol 2018 Jul 24
  • Ji YW, Park SY, … Seo KY
  • CONCLUSIONS: Necrotizing scleritis is a severe complication that can arise after cosmetic eye-whitening conjunctivectomy with MMC. Because of the large area of the ocular surface that is treated in eye-whitening with MMC, the necrotizing scleritis that can ensue may be more extensive and severe than the surgically induced necrotizing scleritis (SINS) following other periocular surgeries such as pterygium removal. Proper anti-inflammatory treatment and surgical intervention should be required for management of this complication.
  • Severe panuveitis with relapsing polychondritis. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2018; 11:3-5
  • Masuda N, Nishikawa R, … Ogata N
  • CONCLUSIONS: and importance: Ophthalmologist should be aware that severe panuveitis with vitreous opacities may be the initial signs of relapsing polychondritis. In addition, vitrectomy was effective for the treatment of the ocular complications.
