To describe a case of presumed tuberculous sclerokeratitis which presented with anterior uveitis and hypopyon Methods: A retrospective chart review Results: A 23-year-old female presented with nodular scleritis, peripheral corneal opacities, and severe anterior chamber reaction with hypopyon. Her Mantoux test and interferon gamma release assay were positive and high-resolution computerized tomography of chest revealed right hilar lymphadenopathy. Aqueous aspirate from anterior chamber paracentesis of her right eye was negative for Mycobacterium tuberculosis genome. She responded to antitubercular treatment and oral corticosteroid Conclusions: Tuberculous sclerokeratitis can rarely present with hypopyon and pose a challenge in diagnosis for the clinicians.

To describe tuberculous uveitis (TU) presenting as a bullous retinal detachment (RD) and to perform a comprehensive literature review on TU with similar features.
Drug-resistant tuberculous meningitis has been reported worldwide. Isoniazid mono-resistance is the most frequent cause of drug-resistant tuberculous meningitis, a life-threatening disease. Extensive ...
To report unique retinal fundus lesions and treatment outcomes of intraocular tuberculosis in patients under anti-tumor necrosis factor treatment.
Tuberculous meningitis is a highly morbid, often fatal disease.
Today there are no tests that allow to make a precise differential diagnosis between uveitis from presumed tuberculous origin and uveitis by sarcoidosis. Therefore, with this study, we aim...
The optimal time to initiate antiretroviral therapy (ART) in HIV-associated tuberculous meningitis (TBM) unknown. There are concerns that immediate ART may worsen rather than improve outco...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the change in visual activity of ranibizumab to Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)in patients with choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to presumed...
Use of oral clarithromycin for treatment of chronic lung disease due to Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare and other non-tuberculous Mycobacteria
Non tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infections in the lung are almost impossible to eradicate with conventional antibiotics. These patients have few options to treat their lung infection. I...
A heterogeneous group of immunocompetent cells that mediate the cellular immune response by processing and presenting antigens to the T-cells. Traditional antigen-presenting cells include MACROPHAGES; DENDRITIC CELLS; LANGERHANS CELLS; and B-LYMPHOCYTES. FOLLICULAR DENDRITIC CELLS are not traditional antigen-presenting cells, but because they hold antigen on their cell surface in the form of IMMUNE COMPLEXES for B-cell recognition they are considered so by some authors.
A type of panniculitis characterized histologically by the presence of granulomas, vasculitis, and necrosis. It is traditionally considered to be the tuberculous counterpart of nodular vasculitis, but is now known to occur without tuberculous precedent. It is seen most commonly in adolescent and menopausal women, is initiated or exacerbated by cold weather, and typically presents as one or more recurrent erythrocyanotic nodules or plaques on the calves. The nodules may progress to form indurations, ulcerations, and scars.
Rare chronic inflammatory disease involving the small blood vessels. It is of unknown etiology and characterized by mucocutaneous ulceration in the mouth and genital region and uveitis with hypopyon. The neuro-ocular form may cause blindness and death. SYNOVITIS; THROMBOPHLEBITIS; gastrointestinal ulcerations; RETINAL VASCULITIS; and OPTIC ATROPHY may occur as well.
A tumor-like mass resulting from the enlargement of a tuberculous lesion.
A circumscribed stable malformation of the skin and occasionally of the oral mucosa, which is not due to external causes and therefore presumed to be of hereditary origin.
An assay is an analytic procedure for qualitatively assessing or quantitatively measuring the presence or amount or the functional activity of a target entity. This can be a drug or biochemical substance or a cell in an organism or organic sample. ...
