Bilateral Herpes Simplex Keratitis With Unilateral Secondary

To describe a case of bilateral herpes simplex keratitis accompanying chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Typically, herpes simplex keratitis is unilateral, and the incidence of bilateral keratitis is reported to range from 1 to 10 (Ostler 1976). Bilateral herpes simplex keratitis with unilateral secondary bacterial keratitis and corneal perforation in a patient with pityriasis rubra pilaris. Most cases ( 90) are unilateral, but bilateral cases may occur, especially in atopic or immunocompromised patients.

Herpetic epithelial keratitis may occur unilaterally or bilaterally (most often in patients with atopic disease) and may be accompanied by a blepharoconjunctivitis, involving lesions of the lid and a follicular response of the conjunctiva. Herpes Simplex Eye Infections- There are two types of herpes simplex virus (HSV). Epithelial keratitis is the most common ocular manifestation, occurring in up to 80 of cases. To report a case of bilateral herpes simplex keratitis with unilateral secondary bacterial keratitis resulting in corneal perforation in a patient with pityriasis rubra pilaris.

Herpes Simplex Virus Keratitis

We report a case of bilateral herpetic keratitis developing after rapid oral corticosteroid tapering in a patient with pemphigus foliaceus, which was followed by unilateral neurotrophic keratitis that was treated with amniotic membrane transplantation. Pemphigus is a group of autoimmune skin diseases with recurrent formation of acantholysis and chronic bullae within the epidermis. To describe a case of bilateral herpes simplex keratitis accompanying chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Bilateral herpes simplex keratitis with unilateral secondary bacterial keratitis and corneal perforation in a patient with pityriasis rubra pilaris. HSV-1 keratitis and uveitis represent two prevalent ocular diseases.

Herpes zoster ophthalmicus represents up to one fourth of all cases of herpes zoster. The virus damages the eye and surrounding structures by secondary perineural and intraneural inflammation of sensory nerves. O. Bilateral retrobulbar neuritis following unilateral herpes zoster ophthalmicus. Bilateral herpetic keratitis presenting with unilateral neurotrophic keratitis in pemphigus. Herpes simplex virus bullous keratitis misdiagnosed as a case of pseudophakic bullous keratopathy with secondary glaucoma: an unusual presentation. Active herpes simplex keratitis is an inflammation of the corneal epithelium due to viral replication and infection causing characteristic dendritic corneal ulcers. Complicated retinal detachment secondary to multiple, posterior retinal holes and PVR associated with ARN syndrome. Bilateral ARN after unilateral herpes zoster ophthalmicus has been reported as a presenting sign of AIDS.

Evaluation And Management Of Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) can cause painful and often recurrent corneal ulcerations with a characteristic branching or dendritic pattern on slit lamp exam. Spontaneous fungal keratitis secondary to Candida parapsilosis and Candida albicans has been observed in persons with advanced HIV disease and a history of antecedent trauma. Ocular involvement may be unilateral or bilateral and is associated with evidence of central nervous system (CNS) infection in up to 85 of patients. Most often, HSV-1 causes gingivostomatitis, herpes labialis, and herpes keratitis. Recurrent herpetic eruptions are precipitated by overexposure to sunlight, febrile illnesses, physical or emotional stress, immunosuppression, or unknown stimuli.
