Ravi Sharma, Sandeep Randhawa
A 12-year-old Indian boy presented with acute and severe vision loss in his right eye. He was being treated for scalp alopecia areata and rashes behind the ears and above the brow. The eye examination revealed unilateral hemorrhagic retinal vasculitis. The lab work was normal except for a positive HLA-B27 result. The patient was treated with intravitreal bevacizumab (Avastin; Genentech, South San Francisco, CA) and systemic immunosuppression. The retinal vasculitis improved with treatment, but visual acuity only mildly improved...

Background: Chronic retinal necrosis (CRN) is a rare chronic granular necrotizing retinitis that was first described in 2013. CRN is characterized by intraocular inflammation accompanied by occlusive vasculitis, granular retinitis, and slowly progressing necrosis around the retina in a host with partial immune dysfunction. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is reported to be a causative agent. There are several ocular complications such as retinal detachment and neovascular glaucoma; however, there has been no description of a clinical manifestation of neovascular glaucoma in CRN...

BACKGROUND: Idiopathic retinal vasculitis, aneurysms, and neuroretinitis syndrome is a very rare primary retinal vasculitis. It seems to evolve in stages, where there is initially a florid vasculitis associated with aneurysm formation. Neuroretinitis and macula edema are common features. Subsequently, retinal ischemia ensues, leading to neovascularization. If untreated, further sight-threatening complications occur, including traction retinal detachment and secondary glaucoma. METHODS AND RESULTS: Here, we describe a patient with early idiopathic retinal vasculitis, aneurysms, and neuroretinitis syndrome, who was treated with a combination of systemic immunosuppression and localized photocoagulation...

Rosanna Dammacco
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multisystem autoimmune disease of undefined etiology and with remarkably heterogeneous clinical features. Virtually any organ system can be affected, including the eye. SLE-related eye involvement can be diagnosed in approximately one-third of the patients and is usually indicative of disease activity. An early diagnosis and the adoption of suitable therapeutic measures are necessary to prevent sight-threatening consequences, especially in patients with juvenile SLE. Periocular lesions, such as eyelid involvement and orbital inflammation, are relatively rare and, in case of orbital masses, may require a biopsy control...

Various protocols are being followed for endophthalmitis prophylaxis in cataract surgery, and this subject continues to be a matter of debate. We summarize the most recent evidence-based studies on this topic with additional stress on intracameral (IC) antibiotic prophylaxis. Here, we discuss several large, international clinical studies which discuss the efficacy, adoption, safety, cost, and newer trends in antibiotic prophylaxis. Majority of these studies report a significant reduction in endophthalmitis rates with IC antibiotic prophylaxis...

INTRODUCTION: Diagnostic work-up of uveitis involves many uncertainties. Search for an etiology should take into account the epidemiology of uveitis and focus on the most severe diseases or those, which can be treated. This work was undertaken to establish recommendations for the diagnosis work-up of uveitis. METHODS: Recommendations were developed by a multidisciplinary panel of 15 experts, including internists, ophthalmologists and a rheumatologist and are based on a review of the literature with regard to effectiveness of investigations and the results of the ULISSE study, which is the first prospective study assessing the efficiency of a standardized strategy for the etiological diagnosis of uveitis...

Idiopathic retinal vasculitis, aneurysms, and neuroretinitis (IRVAN) is a rare syndrome affecting the retinal and optic disc vasculature. Diffuse retinal ischemia, macular edema, and neovascularization may lead to bilateral vision loss. The authors report a case of a 36-year-old woman presenting with branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO) in her right eye who was subsequently diagnosed with IRVAN syndrome. She was treated with panretinal photocoagulation for peripheral retinal ischemia and pars plana vitrectomy for vitreous hemorrhage...

REVIEW
Aravind Haripriya, David F Chang
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: There is continuing debate regarding the safety, efficacy, and necessity of intracameral antibiotics to prevent postoperative endophthalmitis. We summarize the most recent evidence-based publications that either support or caution against this practice. RECENT FINDINGS: Several additional large, international retrospective clinical studies found a significant reduction in endophthalmitis rates with intracameral antibiotic prophylaxis. Many surgeons are looking for alternatives to vancomycin for intracameral prophylaxis because of its association with the rare but sight-threatening complication of hemorrhagic occlusive retinal vasculitis...

Importance: Eradication of systemic tuberculosis (TB) has been limited by neglected populations and the HIV pandemic. Whereas ocular TB often presents as uveitis without any prior evidence of systemic TB, the existing uncertainty in the diagnosis of TB uveitis may perpetuate missed opportunities to address systemic TB. Objective: To examine the clinical features of TB uveitis and the associations with response to antitubercular therapy (ATT). Design, Setting, and Participants: This retrospective multinational cohort study included patients from 25 ophthalmology referral centers diagnosed with TB uveitis and treated with ATT from January 1, 2004, through December 31, 2014, with a minimum follow-up of 1 year...

Syphilitic chorioretinitis should be included in differential diagnosis of any form of ocular inflammation. A significantly higher proportion of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients with ocular syphilis as compared to HIV-negative cases have been reported in published studies. However, the clinical signs and symptoms are more insidious in HIV-negative patients who are easily misdiagnosed. We report a series of cases of ocular syphilis and describe the clinical manifestations and treatment outcomes of syphilitic chorioretinitis in HIV-negative patients in China...

Idiopathic retinal vasculitis, aneurysms, and neuroretinitis (IRVAN) syndrome typically affects young, healthy individuals. Despite the dramatic fundus appearance seen in this syndrome, these patients are usually asymptomatic. The syndrome includes peculiar vascular abnormalities in the form of multiple aneurysmal dilatations seen along retinal arterioles and optic nerve-head arterioles, which are best appreciated on fluorescein angiography. Neuroretinitis and retinal vasculitis are seen in all patients, and manifested by staining of the optic nerve head and diffuse leakage from vessels, mainly arterioles, on fluorescein angiography...
