Neurotrophic Keratitis Due to Congenital Corneal Anesthesia with Deafness, Hypotonia, Intellectual Disability, Face Abnormality and Metabolic Disorder: A New Syndrome?

"Congenital corneal anesthesia is a very rare disorder that necessitates careful ophthalmologists'u2019 involvement in making diagnosis and treatment decisions. " In this case report, we describe a patient with multiple systemic and neurological disorders who presented to the eye department due to corneal erosion that was unresponsive to treatment. The discrepancy between clinical signs and symptoms or treatment non-responsiveness in cases of corneal erosions should alert the ophthalmologists to suspect trigeminal dysfunction. MRI is the gold standard used to establish congenital corneal anesthesia and to distinguish from other potential neurotrophic keratitis causes. ".

Neurotrophic keratitis: current challenges and future prospects

Orsola-Malpighi Teaching Hospital, Bologna, Italy Abstract: Neurotrophic keratitis is a degenerative corneal disease characterized by impaired trigeminal corneal innervation, Marco Pellegrini, Marco Pellegrini, Marco Pellegrini, Marco Pellegrini, Stefano Sebastiani, Emilio C Campos Ophthalmology Unit, Department of Experimental, Diagnostic, and Specialty Medicine, Sant's The deficiency of corneal sensory innervation contributes to the depletion of both protective reflexes and trophic neuromodulators, which are essential for the maintenance, metabolism, and wound healing of ocular surface tissue tissues. Diagnosis of NK requires careful investigation into every ocular and systemic disease associated with the disease, complete ocular surface examination, and quantitative measurement of corneal sensitivity. NK can be anything from corneal epithelial changes to persistent epithelial abnormality and ulceration, which may progress to corneal perforation.

Bilateral herpetic keratitis presenting with unilateral neurotrophic keratitis in pemphigus foliaceus: a case report

"Abstract Introduction We present a case of bilateral herpetic keratitis developing in a patient with pemphios foliaceus, which was followed by unilateral neurotrophic keratitis treated with amniotic membrane transplantation in a patient with pemphiotic keratitis. Case example A 71-year-old Korean man developed bilateral herpetic keratitis a week after rapid tapering of systemic corticosteroid. The right eye of our patient had healed a week earlier, but his left eye had developed stromal edema with larger epithelial abnormalities. Patients with autoimmune disease or immunosuppressive therapy have a higher risk of suffering bilateral herpetic keratitis. ".

Neurotrophic keratitis in a patient with disseminated lymphangiomatosis

"Visual acuity in a patient with disseminated lymphangiomatosis that caused a mass effect in Meckel's cave, leading to compression of the trigeminal nerve. Key words: neurotrophic keratitis, corneal abrasion, drawstring tarsorrhaphy, disseminated lymphangiomatosis were all effective in treating neurotrophic keratitis.
