Kaivon Pakzad-Vaezi, Kathryn L Pepple
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis (TINU) is an important yet underrecognized ocular inflammatory syndrome. This review summarizes key historical publications that identified and defined the syndrome, and more recent literature that reveal the importance of urinary β2-microglobulin testing and kidney biopsy in the diagnostic evaluation of patients with TINU. Additionally, research studies providing new insights into disease pathogenesis are highlighted. RECENT FINDINGS: In contrast with initial reports of TINU manifesting exclusively as an anterior uveitis in pediatric patients, more recent reports have identified TINU in patients of all ages with a wide range of ocular manifestations...

PURPOSE: To explore the effects of LPS pretreatment on endotoxin-induced uveitis and PI3K/AKT pathway. METHODS: Endotoxin-induced uveitis was induced by a single subcutaneous injection of 200 μg LPS. For the endotoxin tolerance group, induction of EIU was preceded by daily subcutaneous injection of 0.1 mg/kg LPS for five days. Clinical scores were graded at 24 h after EIU under a slit lamp microscope. HE stain was performed to observe the histopathology. Aqueous humor TNF-α concentration was quantified with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay...

PurposeThe purpose of this study was to study outcomes after using perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL) as a short-term postoperative vitreous substitute in eyes with retinal detachment from giant retinal tears (GRTs).Patients and methodsA retrospective consecutive case series of patients with retinal detachment from GRT, who underwent vitrectomy using PFCL as short-term postoperative retinal tamponade. PFCL was left in the eye for a mean of 6.7 days (range 7-8 days) and then replaced with gas or silicone oil (SO)...

The ocular side-effects of bisphosphonates have the potential to escalate with their widespread use. We report a patient of osteoporosis who was treated with zoledronic acid infusion. He developed ocular pain, redness, watering, photophobia and swelling of both the eyes. He was diagnosed with acute anterior uveitis and conjunctivitis and treated with topical 1% prednisolone acetate and 1% atropine sulphate. The signs of inflammation abated by one week and the steroids were tapered over the next six weeks. There were no further recurrences...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to determine the prevalence of uveitis in the diabetic population, the clinical features of the uveitis and diabetes when coexisting and pathophysiology of a possible correlation. We also aim to review the cases of diabetes and uveitis in the literature. RECENT FINDINGS: The basis of an association between uveitis and diabetes mellitus (DM) is the common pathophysiology of inflammation. There are several reports on a DM-related uveitis, defined as idiopathic anterior uveitis in the presence of poorly controlled DM, but causation has not been established...

PURPOSE: To identify predictors of treatment success in syphilitic uveitis (SU). DESIGN: Retrospective multicentric analysis of patients treated for SU. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 95 eyes (66 patients, mean [standard deviation] aged 49 [12.5] years, 31 [47%] of whom were human immunodeficiency virus [HIV]+) were analyzed. METHODS: Activity of SU was assessed at 1 week and 1 month after treatment onset, and at last follow-up...

Importance: Exposure of the tube of an aqueous drainage device (ADD) through the conjunctiva is a serious complication of ADD surgery. Although placement of gamma-irradiated sterile cornea (GISC) as a patch graft over the tube is commonly performed, exposures still occur. Objectives: To measure GISC patch graft thickness as a function of time after surgery, estimate the rate of graft thinning, and determine risk factors for graft thinning. Design, Setting, and Participants: Cross-sectional study of graft thickness using anterior segment optic coherence tomography (AS-OCT) was conducted at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins Hospital...

Objective: To report a case of bilateral anterior uveitis secondary to oral moxifloxacin. Methods: Case report. Results: A 54-year-old female presented bilateral anterior uveitis following a 10-day course of oral moxifloxacin. She developed a bilateral anterior uveitis associated with pigment dispersion syndrome and iris transillumination. Conclusions: Drug-induced uveitis is one of the causes of anterior uveitis. Uveitis related to fluoroquinolones is a rare entity, there are few cases reported in the literature, this is the first case reported in Latin America...

PURPOSE: Endotoxin-induced uveitis (EIU) is a well-established mouse model for studying human acute inflammatory uveitis. The purpose of this study is to investigate the genome-wide retinal transcriptome profile of EIU. METHODS: The anterior segment of the mice was examined with a slit-lamp, and clinical scores were evaluated simultaneously. The histological changes in the posterior segment of the eyes were evaluated with hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) staining. A high throughput RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) strategy using the Illumina Hiseq 2500 platform was applied to characterize the retinal transcriptome profile from lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-treated and untreated mice...

Anterior uveitis is the most common group of uveitis worldwide, with a diverse spectrum ranging from autoimmune and infectious to masquerade etiologies. Elucidation of the underlying etiology may be challenging, but it remains important, especially for recurrent uveitis. Multimodal imaging has improved our understanding and management of many posterior uveitis and panuveitis. Similarly, a wide variety of anterior segment ophthalmic imaging techniques are available to allow the monitoring of the structural changes that may develop during anterior uveitis...

Our study aimed to determine the clinical, therapeutic and prognostic features of ocular involvement in patients with Behçet's disease treated in our Department of ophthalmology. We conducted a retrospective data collection from medical records of 20 patients treated at the military hospital in Laayoune. All patients underwent complete ophthalmological examination and fluorescein angiography if necessary. OCT exam was performed in two patients. Ten patients had anterior uveitis, complicated in one case by ocular hypertonia; two patients had intermediate uveitis; eight patients had posterior segment involvement complicated in one case by intravitreal hemorrhage...

Axial spondyloarthritis is an inflammatory rheumatic disease causing back pain, functional impairment and potential ankylosis in the advanced stage. In this context, TNF blockers have been a major therapeutic advance. Etanercept is a soluble recombinant TNF receptor fusion protein in this vain. Areas covered: The aim of this review is to summarize the current published data concerning the efficacy and tolerance of etanercept in axial spondyloarthrits. The authors performed a systematic review on PubMed, using 'etanercept' and 'spondyloarthritis', 'axial spondyloarthritis' or 'ankylosing spondylitis' keywords...

REVIEW
Viral V Juthani, Elizabeth Clearfield, Roy S Chuck
BACKGROUND: Cataract is a leading cause of blindness worldwide. Cataract surgery is commonly performed but can result in postoperative inflammation of the eye. Inadequately controlled inflammation increases the risk of complications. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and corticosteroids are used to prevent and reduce inflammation following cataract surgery, but these two drug classes work by different mechanisms. Corticosteroids are effective, but NSAIDs may provide an additional benefit to reduce inflammation when given in combination with corticosteroids...

OBJECTIVE: Anterior uveitis (AU) is an intraocular inflammatory condition closely linked to spondyloarthritis (SpA). Clinical disease variables may often underestimate the true effect of the disease on patient's quality of life. This study examines AU and associated undiagnosed SpA using established quality-of-life tools to inform clinicians of the effect of these diseases. METHODS: The Dublin Uveitis Evaluation Tool (DUET) algorithm was developed and validated in a cohort of consecutive patients with AU who were all screened by a rheumatologist for the presence of SpA...

PURPOSE: To evaluate choroidal changes in eyes with acute anterior uveitis associated with human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-B27. METHODS: In 44 patients with first-onset, unilateral, acute-onset (<1 week) anterior uveitis for which diagnostic work-ups revealed positivity only for HLA-B27, wide-field three-dimensional volumetric raster scan using swept-source optical coherence tomography was performed for both eyes. Choroidal thickness was measured by automated segmentation and thickness mapping and compared between eyes with uveitis and the fellow eyes at baseline...
