Interstitial Keratitis

(Parenchymatous keratitis)

The interstitial keratitis is a chronic inflammation of the middle nichtulzerierende stroma (the middle layers of the cornea) and sometimes associated with uveitis. The cause is usually an infection. Symptoms include photophobia, pain, epiphora and blurred vision. The diagnosis is made with the slit lamp and the cause is determined by serological tests. treating the cause (causal therapy). These local corticosteroids may be required.

The interstitial keratitis, a manifestation of certain corneal infections, is rare in the United States. Most cases occur as a late complication of congenital syphilis in children or adolescents on (congenital syphilis). In the end, both eyes can be affected. A similar, but less dramatic bilateral keratitis is observed in Cogan syndrome (Cogan’s syndrome), of the Lyme disease (Lyme disease, Lyme disease), and Epstein-Barr virus infections. In rare cases, an acquired syphilis, herpes simplex, Herpes Zoster cause tuberculosis or a unilateral form in adults.

Symptoms and complaints photophobia, pain, epiphora and blurred vision are common. The lesion begins as infiltrates in the central river that lead to clouding. Typically, the entire cornea appears frosted glass-like syphilis and occasionally for other reasons, so that the iris is difficult to see. From the limbus, new blood vessels grow on (neovascularization) and cause orange red areas (salmon spots). Anterior uveitis and choroiditis are common in syphilitic interstitial keratitis. After 1-2 months inflammation and neovascularization have to in general. A certain corneal opacity remains mostly back and causes a low to moderate visual loss.
