Abstract

A CASE REPORT OF GRANULOMATOUS UVEITIS WITH SECONDARY COMPLICATIONS

Dawn V. J.*, Rosmi Jose, Anchu C., Arya Jayakumar and Archana P.

ABSTRACT

Uveitis is a common condition characterized by the inflammation of uveal tissue, while granulomatous uveitis is a relatively rare condition in which the patient presents with chronic inflammation of proliferative nature in response to various etiological factors such as irritant foreign bodies, inorganic or organic material introduced from outside, intraocular hemorrhage or necrotic tissue within the eye, or one of the certain organisms of non-pyrogenic and relatively nonvirulent character. Granulomatous uveitis is also reported in sarcoidosis. In the current case, the patient presents with chronic uveitis and develops severe secondary complications viz. Angleclosure Glaucoma and Diabetes mellitus. There is a difficulty with the actual etiology of the condition. There is no familial history of similar diseases, no cases of lime disease or other autoimmune disorders, no exposure to Tuberculosis, and no other history of systemic illness nor other possible etiology of the same. The patient's ACE levels are elevated indicating the possibility of sarcoidosis but yet to be confirmed by the physician. The case represents a rare condition and its complications.

Keywords: Granulomatous uveitis, Anterior uveitis, Posterior synechiae, cataract, neovascularisation.
