PURPOSE: To report two cases of herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). METHODS: Interventional small case series. LASIK in Patients With Herpes Simplex Virus. Herpetic keratitis, if left untreated, can lead to significant corneal scarring and vision loss, and is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide 1. Two small case studies found no reactivation of HSV after perioperative administration of antiviral therapy in patients with a documented history of ocular HSV infection. Laser in situ keratomileusis in eyes with inactive herpetic keratitis. CASE REPORT A 36-year-old man had bilateral LASIK with a superior hinge in June 2000. 2 ed visual acuity was 20/80 in the right eye and pinhole (PH) 20/40. Infectious keratitis after laser in situ keratomileusis: results of an ASCRS survey.
Cases reported Keratitis, Herpetic; Herpes Simplex Keratitis; Herpes Simplex, Ocular. PURPOSE: To report a case of herpes simplex virus reactivation after starting bimatoprost treatment for glaucoma. Two patients who were diagnosed and treated early retained a visual acuity of 0. By Ruth Lapid-Gortzak in Myopia and Cornea. To report two cases of herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Interventional small case series. Reports of keratitis after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), as well as after laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK) or photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), have become increasingly common in recent years, although they are still rare. Post-LASIK herpes simplex virus (HSV)-associated keratitis has been reported with or without previous history of herpetic disease. A peri- and post-operative regimen consisting of systemic aciclovir or valaciclovir 500mg twice daily for one week pre-operatively and two weeks postoperatively and topical aciclovir ointment at bedtime for at least two weeks post operatively in addition to the topical standard post-operative antibiotic treatment is recommended.
Purpose: To report the first multicenter survey in Japan on infectious keratitis after excimer laser surgery. Methods: The laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) Safety Network (LSN) Committee sent questionnaires to 28 LSN member hospitals to assess the total number of laser corneal surgeries, the number of infection cases (including suspicious cases), and the postoperative follow-up rate during a 3-year period. Laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a rapidly evolving ophthalmic surgical procedure. The incidence of thin flaps after LASIK has been reported to vary between 0. Two reports described dislocation of a LASIK flap during vitrectomy surgery. A known history of herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a contraindication for LASIK50 especially in the presence of corneal findings because of the risk of virus reactivation. Culture-proven Herpetic Keratitis After Penetrating Keratoplasty in Patients with No Previous History of Herpes Disease. To report three cases of herpetic infection in recipients of organ-cultured donor corneas among 586 consecutive corneal transplantation procedures. To assess the clinical relevance of tear anti-herpes simplex virus (HSV) antibody measurement for the diagnosis of herpes simplex keratitis.
Cases Reported Keratitis, Herpetic; Herpes Simplex Keratitis; Herpes Simplex, Ocular
Purpose.: To determine corneal sensitivity to selective mechanical, chemical, and thermal (heat and cold) stimulation in patients with a history of herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis. Corneal infection by herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a common condition that usually develops as an acute or chronic corneal inflammation. 8 In addition, some patients with active HSV keratitis report sensations of spontaneous pain, discomfort, and dryness. 2. Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking with Riboflavin and UVA. A patient with no history of herpetic keratitis developed herpes simplex keratitis geographical ulcer and iritis five days after treatment 18. In cases of corneal infection after CXL, contact with the infectious agent likely occurred during the early postoperative period rather than during surgery because CXL not only damages keratocytes, but it also kills bacteria and fungi. Delayed post-LASIK microbial keratitis was diagnosed. Immunofluorescence stain was positive for the herpes simplex virus antigen. After excimer laser ablation, the epithelial sheet is repositioned over the treatment zone. Purpose: To report a keratoconic eye that developed severe sterile keratitis and corneal scar after collagen crosslinking necessitating corneal transplantation. Case Report: A 26-year-old man with progressive keratoconus underwent collagen crosslinking and presented with severe keratitis 72 hours after the procedure. One mechanism is infectious etiologies such as herpes simplex virus, 10 Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus epidermidis, and Staphylococcus salivarius. Diffuse lamellar keratitis after corneal crosslinking in a patient with post-laser in situ keratomileusis corneal ectasia. Corneal herpes simplex virus type 1 superinfection in patients with recrudescent herpetic keratitisLies RemeijerRotterdam Eye Hospital, Rotterdam, The NetherlandsInvest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 43:358-63. PURPOSE: To identify localization and kinetics of infiltrated cells and cytokines in murine herpetic keratitis. Experimental laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis induces the reactivation of latent herpes simplex virusD K DhaliwalDepartment of Ophthalmology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15213, USAAm J Ophthalmol 131:506-7. To report two cases of herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK).

Laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) has become an History of complications in fellow eye increasingly performed procedure throughout the world. PURPOSE: To report two cases of herpes simplex virus (HSV) segments was normal. Recurrences of the herpetic keratitis were seen after tapering of the topical One day postoperatively, UCVA was 6/15 in the steroids; four and three recurrences were observed, respectively. Purpose: To report a case of a dendritic epithelial defect with interface inflammation associated with Alternaria sp. Fungal keratitis is a rare but serious complication of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery. We describe a case of dendritic epithelial defect with interface inflammation associated with Alternaria sp. after LASIK surgery. PURPOSE: To report two cases of herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). METHODS: Interventional small case series.
