FP1119 : The Pretentious Uveitis: Masquarade Syndromes

Dr. Akanksha, Dr.Dipankar Das

Masquerade syndromes are disorders that can present with intraocular inflammation and are often misdiagnosed as a chronic idiopathic uveitis. The term “Masquerade Syndrome” was first used in 1967 to describe a case of conjunctival carcinoma that manifested as chronic conjunctivitis.

Uveitis is the third leading cause of worldwide blindness and currently accounts for approximately 15% of preventable vision loss worldwide. The Standardization of Uveitis Nomenclature (SUN) Working Group, in 2005, classified uveitis based on anatomic location into anterior uveitis, intermediate uveitis, posterior uveitis, and panuveitis.

Ocular Toxocariasis (OT) is a clinically well-defined manifestation of Toxocara infection caused by Toxocara canis or Toxocara cati. Dogs, wolves, and foxes are the definitive hosts for T.canis, whereas domestic cats host T. cati. It usually affects children, causing painless unilateralvision loss, strabismus, or leukocoria.

Ocular tuberculosis is an extra pulmonary dissemination of Mycobacterium tuberculosis primarily from the lungs. Although ocular presentation is relatively less common than the pulmonary disease, the ocular manifestations present clinically with or without pulmonary involvement. The diagnosis and treatment of ocular tuberculosis is challenging. This is mainly due to the overlapping clinical presentations, lack of systemic evidence of disease, and difficulty in obtaining ocular tissues samples.

FP450 : Comparing the Oxygen Saturation of Retinal Vessels in Patients with Ocular Tuberculosis and Controls

Dr. Ruchir Mehta, M13882, Dr. Padmamalini Mahendradas, Dr. Ashwin Mohan, Dr. Poornachandra B, Dr. Rohit Shetty

Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by the acid-fast bacillus (AFB) Mycobacterium tuberculosis. India accounts for nearly 1/3rd of global burden of TB. 1.4% of persons with PTB develop ocular manifestations but many patients with ocular TB have no evidence of PTB. Criteria for establishing a diagnosis of ocular TB are not well established so the epidemiology of ocular TB is less certain than for TB.
