Corneal Complications Of Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

Of 94 patients with acute herpes zoster ophthalmicus who were seen during a six-year period, 61 had corneal involvement. The corneal complications in the order of chronological clinical occurrence were punctate epithelial keratitis in 51, early pseudodendrites in 51, anterior stromal infiltrates in 41, sclerokeratitis in 1, kerato-uveitisendothelitis in 34, serpiginous ulceration in 7, delayed corneal mucous plaques in 13, disciform keratitis in 10, neurotrophic keratitis in 25, and exposure keratitis in 11. Corneal complications of herpes zoster ophthalmicus include pseudodendritic keratitis, late mucous adherent keratopathy, varied forms of stromal keratitis, and exposureneurotrophic keratopathy. Herpes zoster ophthalmicus represents up to one fourth of all cases of herpes zoster. Corneal complications occur in approximately 65 percent of cases of herpes zoster ophthalmicus.

Herpes zoster ophthalmicus is reactivation of a varicella-zoster virus infection (shinglessee also Herpes Zoster) involving the eye. Symptoms and signs, which may be intense, include dermatomal forehead rash and painful inflammation of all the tissues of the anterior and, rarely, posterior structures of the eye. Zoster skin manifestations in the eyelids can affect the deep dermis. Scleritis can cause scleral, limbal and corneal atrophy.

This article will review the ocular complications associated with varicella zoster virus (VZV) in both children and adults, as well as discuss potential treatment options for shingles and postherpetic neuralgia. Most significantly, the cornea can be scarred by vesicular eruption. 5 Similar to the dendritic appearance caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis, active varicella can invade the cornea and cause punctate or dendritic keratitis (see How to Differentiate Herpes Simplex from Varicella Zoster, above). Herpes zoster ophthalmicus (HZO) is defined as a reactivation of VZV that originates from the trigeminal ganglion and includes ocular involvement. Liesegang TJ Corneal complications from herpes zoster ophthalmicus. Of 94 patients with acute herpes zoster ophthalmicus who were seen during a six-year period, 61 had corneal involvement. The corneal complications in the order of chronological clinical occurrence were punctate epithelial keratitis in 51, early pseudodendrites in 51, anterior stromal infiltrates in 41, sclerokeratitis in 1, kerato-uveitisendotheliitis in 34, serpiginous ulceration in 7, delayed corneal mucous plaques in 13, disciform keratitis in 10, neurotrophic keratitis in 25, and exposure keratitis in 11.

In most cases, herpes zoster ophthalmicus is mild, and usually results in short-term inflammation, such as a temporary keratitis, which usually resolves without topical antiviral treatment. People who are immunocompromised, such as those with HIV or those undergoing treatment with chemotherapy, are especially at risk for serious complications of zoster ophthalmicus. Conventional surgery for cataract, glaucoma and corneal scarring gave good results which were probably no different from experience with routine cases, although there was a tendency for prolonged post-operative inflammation. 4 Liesegang TJ: Corneal Complications from Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus. ABSTRACT Corneal complications of herpes zoster ophthalmicus include pseudodendritic keratitis, late mucous adherent keratopathy, varied forms of stromal keratitis, and exposureneurotrophic keratopathy. The infection frequently leads to corneal ulceration or other ocular complications. Hemorrhagic complications may occur, especially in patients who have underlying hematopoietic diseases (e. Herpes zoster corneal disease is insidious in onset, protean in manifestation, and potentially visually devastating, even if promptly and appropriately managed. Herpes zoster ophthalmicus (think of this in the elderly patient).

Herpes zoster ophthalmicus occurs worldwide, usually in healthy adults, but, increasingly in patients who are immunocompromised. Corneal complications of herpes zoster ophthalmicus sometimes require surgical intervention. Up to half of cases manifest corneal complications. Herpes zoster ophthalmicus occurs when a latent varicella zoster virus in the trigeminal ganglia involving the ophthalmic division of the nerve is reactivated. Corneal complications occur in approximately 65 of cases with herpes zoster ophthalmicus. I pazienti con herpes zoster che interessa la prima divisione del nervo trigemino (cio il ramo naso-ciliare) presentano un processo patologico chiamato herpes zoster oftalmico (HZO).
