KERATITIS PUNCTATA SUPERFICIALIS PDF

Others: molluscum contagiosum, trauma. Treatment Multiple therapeutic strategies have been tried over the years for the management of TSPK, but none of them have resulted to be entirely successful. Antibiotics have not been effective so far. While mild improvements have been reported with trifluridine therapy, [14] idoxuridine has been shown to cause persistent subepithelial ghost opacities and scarring, and is therefore contraindicated for TSPK.

Others: molluscum contagiosum, trauma. Treatment Multiple therapeutic strategies have been tried over the years for the management of TSPK, but none of them have resulted to be entirely successful. Antibiotics have not been effective so far. While mild improvements have been reported with trifluridine therapy, [14] idoxuridine has been shown to cause persistent subepithelial ghost opacities and scarring, and is therefore contraindicated for TSPK. The goal of corticosteroid therapy is to administer the minimum dosage and strength possible to control the symptoms of TSPK.

The benign course of the disease requires the use of lubricant eyedrops and topical surface steroids, at low and infrequent dose for prolonged periods of time with close monitoring of intraocular pressure and cataract formation.

Superficial Punctate Keratitis

A viral aetiology has been suggested by the absence of bacterial infection and clinical resemblance to other viral keratopathies. We report the results of polymerase chain reaction analysis for the detection of herpes simplex virus HSV 1 and 2, herpes zoster virus, varicella zoster virus VZV and adenovirus from corneal epithelial samples from patients with active signs and symptoms of TSPK. Methods Schirmer strip impressions were taken from the epithelium of eight patients with a known history of TSPK and symptoms and signs of active disease. Three patients were recruited as positive controls two with herpes simplex keratitis and one with herpes zoster ophthalmicus. Samples from a further three patients acted as negative controls. The three negative control samples showed no evidence of viral DNA.
