OBJECTIVE: Inflammatory ocular disease (IOD) is a rare but severe extraarticular manifestation of rheumatoid arthritis (ExRA) with high mortality. The aim of our study was to examine clinical characteristics of IOD in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and their effect on disease severity and outcomes in recent years. METHODS: A retrospective cohort of RA patients with IOD evaluated between 1996 and 2013 was assembled and compared to RA comparators without IOD and matched for age, sex, and disease duration...

Episcleritis is the inflammation of the thin, loose, highly vascular connective tissue layer that lies between the conjunctiva and sclera. Incidence is less than 1/1000. It is more common in women and those between 40 and 50 years of age. Most cases are idiopathic. It is classified into simple and nodular. Most attacks resolve within 1-3 months. The nodular type tends to be more recurrent and painful. It presents with acute onset of redness, lacrimation, and photophobia. The diagnosis of is essentially clinical, and eye pain or tenderness should raise the concern for scleritis...

BACKGROUND: Ubiquitous fungi of the Scedosporium apiospermum species complex (SASC) cause various opportunistic infections. Posterior subtenon triamcinolone acetonide (STTA) injection is a standard therapy for intraocular inflammation and macular edema. We report a case of Scedosporium apiospermum infectious scleritis after a posterior STTA injection. CASE PRESENTATION: A 75-year-old man received a posterior STTA injection to treat macular edema in his left eye...

RATIONALE: Surgically induced scleritis is a rare complication following ophthalmologic surgery such as cataract surgery, pterygium excision, strabismus surgery, and retinal detachment repair. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the connective tissue disease most commonly associated with scleritis. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 70-year-old woman visited our clinic with complaint of visual disturbance, ocular pain, and conjunctival injection in her right eye of 1 month's duration...

PURPOSE: To describe the clinical pattern of scleritis in patients ≤16 years of age at a tertiary care eye hospital in India. METHODS: The medical records of 24 eyes of 20 children with scleritis were included in this retrospective study. Collected data included age, subsets of uveitis, best corrected visual acuities (BCVA), detailed laboratory investigations and treatment. RESULTS: Mean age at presentation was 12.2 ± 2.5 years. Scleritis was unilateral in 80% patients and an equal gender distribution was observed...

PURPOSE: Recent insights into the pathogenesis of immune-mediated diseases proposed a new classification, which includes autoimmune and auto-inflammatory diseases. The prevalence of specific autoimmune and auto-inflammatory diseases in uveitis and/or scleritis is not yet known. In this study, we examine the presence of systemic immune-mediated diseases in patients with uveitis and/or scleritis and put a special emphasis on autoimmune disorders by reporting on their clinical manifestations and visual prognosis...

BACKGROUND: Eye pain is a common complaint, but no previous studies have determined the most common causes of this presenting symptom. Our objective was to determine the most common causes of eye pain in 2 ophthalmology and neurology departments at academic medical centers. METHODS: This was a retrospective cross-sectional analysis and chart review at the departments of ophthalmology and neurology at the University Hospital Zurich (USZ), University of Zürich, Switzerland, and the University of Utah (UU), USA...

A 67-year-old Japanese man was diagnosed with granulomatosis with polyangiitis based on the presence of right maxillary sinusitis, proteinase 3 antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody positivity, and right scleritis. A conjunctival biopsy specimen showed neutrophil-predominant infiltration around the vessels without granuloma. Because there was a risk of blindness, pulsed methylprednisolone and intravenous cyclophosphamide pulse therapy (IVCY) was started. However, it was ineffective, and peripheral ulcerative keratitis newly emerged...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To determine demographic and clinical features of patients with Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK) that are independent risk factors both for bad outcomes and for severe inflammatory complications (SIC). METHODS: A retrospective audit of medical records of AK cases at Moorfields Eye Hospital from July 2000 to April 2012, including 12 earlier surgical cases. Cases with a bad outcome were defined as those having one or more of the following: corneal perforation, keratoplasty, other surgery (except biopsy), duration of antiamoebic therapy (AAT) ≥10...

Superficial granulomatous pyoderma gangrenosum, a rare variant of pyoderma gangrenosum, has been considered to be the most benign form of the disease. We present the case of a 15-year-old boy with pulmonary involvement and nodular scleritis associated with this unusual type of pyoderma gangrenosum and discuss its differential diagnosis.

REVIEW
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...

The purpose of this study was to describe a case of necrobiotic xanthogranuloma scleritis in a 53-year-old male with unilateral progressive visual loss, scleritis, prolonged fever, and multiple mononeuropathy. Scleral biopsy showed necrosis with small abscess, and the pathological tissues revealed submucosal infiltration of mononucleated foamy histiocytes (xanthoma cells), hemosiderin-laden macrophages, neutrophils, lymphocytes, plasma cells, and erythrocytes without Touton giant cells or cholesterol clefts...

A 61-year-old male was referred with a week's history of a painful and swollen left eye. Examination revealed normal visual acuities, left proptosis and global restriction of ocular ductions, and subretinal fluid at the macula. CT imaging confirmed thickening of the posterior scleral coat, with an associated choroidal effusion. Serology revealed positive antinuclear antibodies with a centromere staining pattern; subsequent rheumatology review revealed extensive telangiectasia with digital ulceration in both hands, and a diagnosis of limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis was made...
