REVIEW
C Springer-Wanner, T Brauns
Ocular manifestation of sarcoidosis occurs in up to 60% of patients with confirmed systemic sarcoidosis and represents one of the most common forms of noninfectious uveitis. In known pulmonary sarcoidosis, ocular involvement can occur in up to 80% of cases. Sarcoidosis can also present only in the eye, without a systemic manifestation (ocular sarcoidosis). Typically, ocular sarcoidosis shows bilateral granulomatous uveitis and can involve all parts of the eye. Apart from an acute anterior uveitis, chronic intermediate or posterior uveitis can be found...

Background HLA-B27 positive acute anterior uveitis is the most common type of uveitis, and it is an autoimmune disease that can be triggered by infections. The precise mechanism of the interaction between involved microbes (mostly gram negative bacteria) and the host immune system is not clear. The disease probably results from an imbalance between pro- and anti-inflammatory components. Project description This article gives a compact overview about the current knowledge of the clinic and the etiopathogenesis of acute anterior uveitis as a basis for future research approaches...

BACKGROUND: Injections of lipopolysaccharide in animal models generate acute anterior uveitis (also known as endotoxin-induced uveitis), but the effects of lipopolysaccharide injection are unknown in humans. We describe an unusual case in which acute anterior uveitis was dramatically activated subsequent to botulinum toxin injection in a patient with Behçet's disease but the acute anterior uveitis was satisfactorily attenuated by infliximab. CASE PRESENTATION: A 53-year-old Japanese man had normal ocular findings at his regularly scheduled appointment...

BACKGROUND: Enthesitis-related arthritis (ERA) is a specific subtype of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) defined according to the International League of Associations for Rheumatology (ILAR) criteria. We aimed to characterize the clinical features and treatment regimens in an inception cohort of children with ERA. METHODS: We performed a retrospective, cross-sectional, multicenter cohort study including subjects diagnosed with ERA between 1989 and 2012. Patients all fulfilled the ILAR criteria for ERA within 3 months of initial presentation to the rheumatology clinic...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: We review our current knowledge about the clinical features of patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) who possess HLA-B*27 versus those who lack this gene. RECENT FINDINGS: ERAP1 association is present only in HLA-B*27+ patients, but other genetic associations are similar between the two groups. A genetic study supports the existence of an HLA-B27-independent common link between gut inflammation and AS. It is unusual to observe familial occurrence of primary AS among families of northern European extraction that show no segregation of HLA-B*27, psoriasis, or IBD...

Bilateral Acute Iris Transillumination (BAIT) is a new clinical entity characterized by acute onset of pigment dispersion in the anterior chamber and angle, depigmentation of the iris stroma and permanent iris transillumination, masquerading as uveitis. An association with oral moxifloxacin is reported in some articles. We describe one case of bilateral acute iris transillumination, following the use of systemic moxifloxacin.

Uveitis, an intraocular inflammatory disease, occurs mostly in young people and can result in the loss of socioeconomic capabilities. Silibinin has been shown to exert anti-inflammatory effects in human retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells. The present study investigated the anti-inflammatory effect of silibinin pretreatment on endotoxin-induced uveitis (EIU) in rats and the mechanisms by which it exerts these effects. Uveitis was induced via injection of lipopolysaccharides (LPS) into Lewis rats. Twenty-four hours after the LPS injection, histological examination showed that silibinin decreased inflammatory cell infiltration in the anterior segment of the eyes of LPS-treated rats...

Primary orbital natural killer T-cell lymphoma (NKTCL) is a rare condition with only a few published cases in the literature. Over 1 month, an 81-year-old man developed progressive left periocular inflammation unresponsive to treatment. Clinical examination and imaging studies demonstrated a left lacrimal gland enlargement. Bilateral anterior uveitis and erythematous nontender cutaneous lesions were also found. Biopsies of the skin and lacrimal gland on the back revealed histopathologic and immunohistochemical findings confirming Epstein-Barr virus-positive NKTCL...

Ocular syphilis is not a new issue but due to increasing rates of new cases is now a contemporary issue. The clinical features are unspecific and can be manifested as all forms of ocular inflammation. Unspecific anterior uveitis is the most frequent ocular involvement; however, typical distinctive patterns are superficial white preretinal precipitates within a panuveitis and acute syphilitic posterior placoid chorioretinitis. The diagnosis should be confirmed by serological tests. Treatment is based on parenteral administration of penicillin...
