Endoscopic vitrectomy can uniquely circumvent anterior segment opacities and is applied to a wide spectrum of retina diseases with media opacities. However, endoscopic internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling has not been described. The authors present one case of a retinal detachment caused by a macular hole in a pathological myopic eye combined with severe keratoleukoma. The 1-year outcome after 23-gauge endoscopic ILM peeling was good. This case report demonstrates that ILM peeling with a 23-gauge endoscope, which requires subtle and difficult macular manipulation, is feasible and effectively treats macular holes complicated with anterior segment opacities.

Cytokine monotherapy with Superlymph used in combination with the keratoprotector Applicoll in the treatment of superficial corneal layer defect resulted in rapidly alleviated inflammatory reactions, accelerated reparative processes, more qualitative epithelial defect recovery, by forming a finer scar, without opacity whereas the traditional treatment led to long-term healing and keratoleukoma in an experiment. The use of cytokine therapy with Superlymph in the complex treatment of corneal injuries and inflammation in children promoted a prompt and stable arrest of a local inflammatory process, accelerated epithelization, reduced opacity intensity, higher visual acuity, and shorter treatment.
- Reactive keratoma of the central corneal epithelium. [Case Reports]
- EJEur J Ophthalmol 2009 May-Jun; 19(3):484-6
- CONCLUSIONS: The authors present a benign keratoma of the central corneal epithelium. High frequency ultrasound and scrape biopsy histopathologic techniques were used to diagnose and treat this keratoleukoma caused by a reactive keratoma as well as improve his vision.

The paper gives the results of a follow-up of the clinical course and visual outcomes of penetrating keratoplasty (PK) in combination of corneal epithelial stem cell grafting (limbic transplantation (LT)) in 10 patients (10 eyes) in end-stage burn disease. For LT, autologous limbic grafts were used in 5 cases and allogenic ones were applied in 5 more cases. Visual outcomes were assessed in the periods of 2 months to 4 years and 3 months. A rather high visual acuity was obtained in the patients who had undergone PK in combination with autologous LT. The majority of patients with allogenic LT were observed to have a recurrence of keratoleukoma and less significant functional outcomes. Possible tissue incompatibility, followed by lysis of allogenic limbic grafts, and inadequate ocular surface moistening are considered to be main causes of recurrent corneal conjunctivalization. PK in combination with LT substantially increases the possibility of visual rehabilitation in patients with postburn total corneal leukomas. The use of autologous limbic grafts for these purposes is more effective as compared with that of allogenic ones.

- ZXZhongguo Xiu Fu Chong Jian Wai Ke Za Zhi 2003; 17(4):318-20
- CONCLUSIONS: Amnitic membrane transplantation can relieve the inflammatory reaction, reduce the growth of blood vessel and restrain the proliferation of fibrous tissue. It is an effect surgical method for ocular burn in reconstruction of ocular surface and salvage of eyeball.

Female rats of the Wistar strain with a mean weight of 222 g were exposed to 96 dB sound according to L.V. Krushinsky. Their eyes were irradiated with a high UV dose in order to reveal potential disorders in high nervous activity. After 3, 7 and 35 days of exposure to UV irradiation at a dose of 10 kJ/m2 with a maximum wavelength of 302 nm the following changes were observed: the amount of "inhibited" rats grew, the latency time of I degree attacks and the duration of inhibition states increased, and the duration of seizure fits decreased. It is postulated that inhibition effects may enhance and stimulation effects may attenuate as a result of reduction of afferent pulses entering the central nervous system from the visual organ due to keratoleukoma.

Strains of poliomyelitis, ECHO-11 and Coxsackie A7 viruses have first been shown to produce uveitis and keratouveitis in Javan macaca and green monkeys inoculated intraocularly. The most marked clinical picture of the eye affection in monkeys (keratoleukoma and opacity of the anterior chamber humor, edema and hyperemia of the iris, significant changes in the iris colour, development of posterior synechias, marked dilation of the pupil to 5-7 mm, no pupil reaction to light) was observed after inoculation with virulent strains of poliomyelitis virus types I, II, and III, and strains of ECHO-11 virus isolated from children with acute infectious uveitis. Uveitis symptoms in monkeys appeared within 20 hours after virus inoculation and persisted for 3 months of observation. No affection of the eyes developed after administration of flaviviruses or control material. In favour of freshly isolated strains of ECHO-11 virus being the cause of uveitis in the children examined are the following facts: ECHO-11 virus was isolated from 5 out of 10 children with uveitis, neutralizing antibody to ECHO-11 virus was found in 8 out of 9 children with uveitis, seven of them showing a rise in antibody titres to ECHO-11 virus to 1:256-1:1024, the clinical picture of uveitis reproduced in monkeys is very similar to that of uveitis in children. The potential role of poliomyelitis viruses and other enteroviruses in the etiology of human uveitis is discussed.
