-Young male patient
- c/o redness since childhood. No c/o itching

- Redness increases during summers
- No treatment taken till date
- Has a -10 cyl in both eyes
- Upper tarsal papillae
- Gelatinous limbus (similar pattern both eyes)
- No angle involvement on Gonioscopy or UBM.
- Pentacam maps giving impression of KCN
- ASOCT epithelial maps normal

My junior assumed it to be OSSN (feeder vessel 😑). I already have a diagnosis in mind. Let’s discuss the differentials. How would you treat this?

Vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) is an allergic eye disease that especially affects young boys.

The most common symptoms are itching, photophobia, burning, and tearing. The most common signs are giant papillae, superficial keratitis, and conjunctival hyperaemia.

Patients with VKC frequently have a family or medical history of atopic diseases, such as asthma, rhinitis, and eczema. However, VKC is not associated with a positive skin test or RAST in 42–47% of patients, confirming that it is not solely an IgE-mediated disease.

Vernal Keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) with Shield Ulcer 👁

👁‍🗨 This middle aged male reported to clinic with decreased vision in the right eye. He stated that he chronically rubbed both eyes due to severe itching that occurred every Spring/Summer. On exam he presented with a central corneal epithelial defect measuring 2mmV by 1mmH with underlying subepithelial haze. No infiltrate was present. On eyelid eversion there were large cobblestone papillae on the palpebral conjunctiva OU.  

👁‍🗨 VKC is a condition that typically happens in younger males who suffer from allergies/atopy. Patients present with bilateral cobblestone papillae that may result in “shield ulcers” due to chronic friction on the corneal surface that is worsened by eye rubbing.  

👁‍🗨 This patient was given a BCL and started on Moxifloxacin QID OD along with Pataday Xtra Strength OU. Once the KED heals topical corticosteroids will be initiated to prevent recurrence and help with comfort.  

👁‍🗨 This case exemplifies why everting the eyelids is critical in cases of corneal abrasions without known etiology.  

Thank you @anterior_seg_rocks for sharing this case with the #huddlecommunity !

: SPRING CATARRH :
aka Vernal keratoconjunctivitis is a form of allergic conjunctivitis.


Mainly affects boys in between the age of 4-20 years.
Has a seasonal incidence, and usually occurs just before summers.

Hi! I’m Krystal, Dr. Worthington (on the left in the first pic)!

My intro post is a pic of my people, my family and my “why”. I first became interested in dry eye because of my family’s and my own experience.

Three generations of allergy and autoimmune related dry eye right here; can you tell I’m willing my daughter won’t be the 4th?

Between all of us we’re a good little dry eye case study including severe VKC, autoimmune related dry eye as related to rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, ankylosing spondylitis, secondary sjogrens, some Bell’s palsy, a little MGD, a keratocone, and some ocular rosacea...the list goes on!

I see everyday first hand how dry eye effects one’s life everyday...in result my patients will notice things different about my examination:

✔️ A pretty aggressive review of systems where we elucidate any and all joint or other autoimmune symptoms

✔️ I order bloodwork quickly and often to rule out any autoimmune conditions in instances of even slight suspicion

✔️ I work closely with a great network of rheumatologists and involve them immediately

✔️ I order allergy testing often and quickly

✔️ I work closely with a great network of allergists and involve them immediately

Because of my family and own experiences, the foundation of my dry eye care is focused on finding the root cause and quickly involving any other sub specialities.

If there are answers beyond traditional therapies we will find them! 💛

What are you most frustrated with in your own dry eye treatment?

Good news, for those of you following our journey with Vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) we have been told we don’t need any more appointments👏


In grade 1 Thai’s eyes were terrible he couldn’t see, they were sore, and itchy, and antihistamines, wet flannels were not helping.

He was diagnosed with Vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) by his allergist and started steroids with an eye specialist. This helped but there were still hives under his eye lids. About 3 years ago Thai started immunotherapy treatment ( a series of injections over 2.5 years) for dust and cat. His environmental allergies were 80% improved and I believe it also helped his VKC. He is also nearing puberty which often also helps this condition.

یکی از علل رایج مراجعه در دو ماه گذشته(خرداد و تیر) ورم ملتحمه بهاره یا

‏Vernal keratoconjunctivitis بوده ،بنابراین خلاصه ای از آن را که یکی از مهم ترین بیماری های آلرژیک چشم است ذکر میکنم.
علت نام بهاره به علت بروز آن در اواخر بهار و اوایل تابستان است(هوای گرم)
این بیماری اغلب در پسربچه ها دیده میشود.علایم مهم بیماری را در تصویر بالا میبینید.
درمان با قطره های ضد حساسیت و گاها قطره های استروییدی و دیگر داروها انجام میشود.پایبندی به درمان و مراجعات پیگیری لازم است.
همچنین آب و هوای سرد و تهویه مناسب هوا در منزل به کاهش این مشکل کمک میکند.
در صورت عدم درمان صحیح در موارد شدید میتواند باعث عوارض جدی در قرنیه شود که در تصویر دوم نمونه ای از آن را میبینید.

Read the caption..

Vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) is an atopic condition of the external ocular surface.VKC is a condition seen primarily in hot and dry The increased incidence in hot regions is speculated to be secondary to a higher level of pollution by pollens and various other allergens. Males are affected more than females, but this difference becomes smaller as age increases.The majority of VKC occurs in patients between the ages of 5-25 years old with an age of onset between 10-12 years old; however there are reports of patients as young as 5-months-old.

*Sympotms*
Itching, photophobia, foreign body sensation, mucous discharge (often described as “ropy”), blepharospasm, and blurring of vision.

*Signs*
• Conjunctival signs include diffuse conjunctival injection and upper tarsal giant papillae
• Limbal signs include thickening and opacification of the limbal conjunctiva
• Corneal signs vary according to the severity of the disease process. 

*Treatmeant*
Removal of any and all possible allergens as well as conservative management such as cool compresses and lid scrubs make up the first line of therapy. A topical antihistamine only may work in mild cases.
Long term immunomodulation with steroid sparing agents such as cyclosporine and tacrolimus is often needed.

This is the time of year when my vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) patients tend to come see me due to worsening seasonal symptoms.

VKC is a disease that presents in early to mid-childhood. Patients complain of itching, tearing, discharge, irritation, redness, blepharospasm, and light sensitivity. Signs can include giant palpebral conjunctival papillae, limbal follicles, Horner-Trantas dots, corneal neovascularization, and shield ulcers. Treatments include mast cell stabilizers, antihistamines, topical steroids, and immunomodulators. Although VKC resolves spontaneously with time, treatment helps to improve comfort and prevent eye rubbing, which can increase the risk of developing keratoconus

Allergic eye disease A CLINICAL CHALLENGE. Clin Exp Allergy. Dec 1998 Pub med.

Currently, six basic allergic eye diseases are recognized. In seasonal (SAC) and perennial allergic conjunctivitis (PAC), the allergic response is mediated predominantly by mast cells, whereas the more severe conditions, vernal (VKC) and atopic keratoconjunctivitis (AKC) and giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC), are associated with a preponderance of T cells. Acute allergic conjunctivitis (AAC) occurs when a large quantity of allergen inoculates the eye and is usually self-limiting. SAC, the most common ocular allergy, is the ocular component of hayfever. PAC in the UK is most commonly caused by the house-dust mite (HDM); diagnosis is confirmed by skin-prick tests, eosinophils in the conjunctival smear, and raised tear or serum total IgE. SAC and PAC can usually be managed with chromone eyedrops and antihistamines. VKC usually presents in children under 10 years of age and mainly affects boys. Sufferers frequently have a personal or family history of atopy. Corneal involvement can occur in VKC, making it potentially sight-threatening. AKC occurs in atopic adults, and like VKC it affects the cornea. VKC and AKC require steroid treatment under specialist supervision; minimization of the steroid dose can often be achieved with use of a chromone. GPC occurs due to repeated contact of the conjunctival surface with a foreign surface, such as contact lenses. Attention to lens hygiene or switching to different lenses and treatment with a chromone are frequently effective. In all allergic eye diseases contact with the precipitating allergen should be avoided as far as possible. #allergyeyes #ocularallergies #vernalkeratoconjunctivitis #antiallergen #allergymanagement #eyedisease #eyediseases

Vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) is a chronic allergic conjunctivitis that is most often seen in young, males.

Although most types of allergic conjunctivitis do not affect vision, VKC is unusual in that damage to the cornea from the condition can result in vision loss. Although it is typically seasonal, year-round symptoms can be seen, which can lead to uncertain diagnoses being made. #vernalkeratoconjunctivitis #eye #eyelid #eyelidsurgery #eyesurgery #cornealulcer #cornea #corneatransplant #eyelidinfection

VERNAL KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS (VKC) ⏩Aetiology

✅More common in some other parts of the world, e.g. Mediterranean region, parts of Africa, Indian sub-continent.
✅Complex immune reaction with raised IgE levels in the tears and serum, and mast cells and eosinophils in the conjunctival epithelium.
⏩Predisposing factors
✔️Onset usually before 10 years of age; M:F = 3-4:1
✔️Seasonal exacerbations (hence name) but condition may be active year-round if severe
✔️Patients usually atopic with a history of #eczema and #asthma
✔️Often a family history of atopic disease.
⏩Symptoms of VKC
☑️Ocular itching
☑️Watering
☑️Mucoid stringy discharge
☑️Blurred vision
☑️ #Photophobia
☑️Difficulty opening eyes on waking
NB: the symptoms are often asymmetrical in the two eyes
⏩Signs of VKC
Stringy white mucous exudate
Palpebral, limbal and corneal manifestations:
✔️Palpebral
✅hyperaemia and #chemosis of conjunctiva when active ✅giant papillary hypertrophy (papillae 1mm or greater in diameter) of upper tarsus (‘ #cobblestone’ appearance)
✔️Limbal
✅hyperaemic, oedematous, thickened limbus ✅ #hornertrantasdots (discrete white superficial accumulations of eosinophils and degenerating epithelial cells)
✔️Corneal (usually in upper third)
✅punctate epithelial #keratopathy ✅macro-erosion (coalescent epithelial loss) ✅plaque (deposited on Bowman’s layer, preventing re-epithelialisation); ‘shield ulcer’ ✅subepithelial scarring (often ring-shaped)
NB: the signs are often asymmetrical in the two eyes
These patients may also have #keratoconus and/or atopic cataract.
⏩Differential diagnosis
Atopic keratoconjunctivitis (usually in adults; around puberty.

#vernalkeratoconjunctivitis #allergy

Vernal Keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) is an allergic disorder of the eye that occurs commonly in children, usually starting before the age of 10.

Associated with raised serum and tear IgE levels and mast cells and eosinophils in the conjunctiva.
AETIOLOGY
Allergic disorder of the conjunctiva and cornea.
Atopic px and/or with atopic family Hx.

Seasonal exacerbation (spring time). SYMPTOMS: ‘Sticky eyes’- Mucous discharge, especially in the morning

Mild photophobia.

Epiphora.

Blurred vision.

Itching.

SIGNS:
Mucous discharge

Palpebral (Hyperaemia and chemosis, Giant papillary hypertrophy of upper lid). Limbal (Hyperaemia, oedema, trantas dots (white deposits of eosinophils and dead epithelial cells). Corneal ( Punctate epithelial staining- these can coalesce into macro-erosions, Plaque- deposited on bowman's layer and will prevent epithelialization, subepithelial scarring.
MANAGEMENT:
VKC is normally a benign and self-limiting condition that can resolve with age.

Cold compress to alleviate symptoms.

Mast-cell stabilisers ( Sodium Cromoglicate 2% or Lodoxamide 0.1% ) 4x a day.

Mild= M-cell stabilisers + careful monitoring for corneal involvement.

Mod= If M-cell stabilisers did not provide relief then routine referral.

Severe= Active corneal or limbal involvement then refer urgently to an ophthalmologist.
