Atypical corneal manifestation of sterile inflammatory infiltrates after alkali ocular burn
Author(s): Ana Luisa Prado Magalhães, Kauê Marques Ferreira, Mariana Miyazi and Alexandre Xavier da Costa
Abstract:
Sterile corneal infiltrates result from the inflammatory response to specific antigens, mobilizing leukocytes (Infiltrates) from the limbal vessels and tear films. They are often observed in contact lens wearers or are secondary to the immune response to bacterial exotoxins and endotoxins. Here, we present an atypical case of sterile infiltrates following alkali ocular burns and a differential diagnosis of infectious infiltrates.
