  • Clinical features of childhood uveitis at a tertiary referral center in Southern Turkey. [Journal Article]
    Int Ophthalmol. 2021 Feb 24 [Online ahead of print]Esen E, Sizmaz S, … Demircan N
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pediatric uveitis is a challenging disease that requires meticulous management. Anterior uveitis is the most frequent form. Despite a changing trend for an increase in diagnostic variety, idiopathic cases still constitute the majority. A significant number of patients receive systemic therapy, develop complications, and require surgical intervention. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment might improve visual outcomes and reduce the risk of visual loss.
  • Clinical Course and Treatment Paradigms for JIA-related Uveitis and Pars Planitis Uveitis Using Precise Ocular Investigational Methods. [Journal Article]
    Klin Monbl Augenheilkd. 2021 Feb 19 [Online ahead of print]Papasavvas I, Gehrig B, Herbort CP
  • CONCLUSIONS: Nowadays, new investigational techniques have made precise follow-up of uveitis possible. We determined the precise inflammatory pattern of JIA uveitis and PP, which is crucial information to determine the therapeutic intervention. As these two entities are common in young and paediatric patients, such precise monitoring is essential to determine adequate treatment paradigms and avoid unnecessary systemic treatment, especially corticosteroids. When the ophthalmic status requires it, multidisciplinary collaboration between the ophthalmologist, the paediatrician and the rheumatologist may be needed to offer optimal management to the patient. In cases of purely ocular involvement, it is the ophthalmologist who should determine the management.
  • Retinoblastoma in an older Hispanic child masquerading as pars planitis: A case report. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Ophthalmol. 2021 Feb 10 [Online ahead of print]Domínguez-Varela IA, Aguilera-Partida JA, … Ancona-Lezama D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Given the rare incidence of retinoblastoma in children older than 5 years old, it can be easily mistaken for other differential diagnoses and treated with filtration surgeries that could put the patient's life at risk. In this report, late-onset Rb diagnosis is highlighted as a differential diagnosis in children and adults with atypical uveitis, which required a multidisciplinary approach.
  • StatPearls: Chorioretinitis [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Geetha Ragi R Tripathy Koushik K BOOK
  • Chorioretinitis is a type of uveitis involving the posterior segment of the eye, which includes inflammation of the choroid and the retina of the eye. Though the term uveitis means inflammation of the uveal tract (iris, ciliary body, and choroid), it can involve the adjacent structures like the retina, retinal vessels, vitreous, optic nerve head, and sclera. The Standardization of Uveitis Nomencl…
  • Child With Red Eye and Blurry Vision. [Case Reports]
    Pediatr Emerg Care. 2017 Oct; 33(10):703-705.Song JL, Elkhunovich M, Rankin JH
  • Point-of-care ocular ultrasound can provide the clinician with more information about potential intraorbital and extraocular pathology, especially in cases when direct visualization of the eye is limited. This case report describes the findings in a pediatric patient who presented with a 1-month history of eye injection and worsening blurry vision. After point-of-care ultrasound demonstrated abno…
  • StatPearls: Pars Planitis [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Chauhan Krati K Southern Illinois University Tripathy Koushik K BOOK
  • Pars planitis is chronic intermediate uveitis for which no systemic disease or associated infection could be found. The term intermediate uveitis describes an intraocular inflammatory process with vitreous as the primary site of inflammation. Inflammation may be present in the anterior vitreous, the vitreous base overlying the peripheral retina-pars plana region. It is characterized by vitreal in…
  • Managing multiple caterpillar hair in the eye. [Case Reports]
    Indian J Ophthalmol. 2017 Mar; 65(3):248-250.Agarwal M, Acharya MC, … Paul L
  • Ophthalmia nodosa with vitreoretinal involvement is rare and may cause permanent loss of eye due to persistent inflammation of the eye. A young female patient having multiple caterpillar hair in the eye including cornea, anterior chamber, sclera, and pars plana presented with recurrent vitritis and pars planitis. Ultrasound biomicroscopy played a vital role and helped in localizing the hair embed…
  • Unilateral uveitis associated with IgA nephropathy. [Case Reports]
    Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol. 2017 Dec; 92(12):598-601.Rueda-Rueda T, Sánchez-Vicente JL, … López-Herrero F
  • CONCLUSIONS: Uveitis and glomerulonephritis may have common immunological pathogenesis. IgA nephropathy should be a differential diagnosis in patients with uveitis and nephropathy.
