Rosacea is a chronic and inflammatory disease with prevalence rates up to 10%. It is classified as erythematotelangiectatic, papulopustular, phymatous and ocular. Although it is considered a cutaneous disease, ocular rosacea occurs in 58 to 72% of cases, leading to dry eye, blepharitis, and conjunctivitis. Eye impairment may precede skin signs in 20% of the cases. Ocular rosacea is often underdiagnosed, since eye signs and symptoms may be subtle and nonspecific, being hard for dermatologists and ophthalmologists to establish the diagnosis and not always remember about the entity.
Authors: Raimann R, Moya R, Anguita R, Kobus R, Pérez M, Gonzalez P Abstract Ligneous conjunctivitis is an uncommon and recurrent type of chronic conjunctivitis. A prevalent cause of this disease is a Plasminogen deficiency, resulting from recessive mutations in the human encoding plasminogen (PLG) gene. This deficiency affects the conjunctiva and also other mucous membranes. Only few hundred cases have been reported in the literature. Here we report a case of a 9-year-old boy with diagnosis of ligneous conjunctivitis. Histopathological examination in hematoxylin-eosin (HE) staining and sequencing of PLG gen...
Background: Cryptococcosis is considered as an important mycozoonosis of global significance mainly affecting immunodeficient patients. Cryptococcus s.p are opportunistic pathogen that commonly found in companion animals, farm animals, birds, and also wild animals which can be easily transmitted to animal and/or human through inhalation of spores, wounds contamination in immunocompromised individual and causing a lethal secondary local or systemic infection. Chlamydiae are obligate intracellular pathogens which can causes local chronic infection such as conjunctivitis, pneumonia and sexually transmitted diseases.
