The number of Langerhans cells was greatly increased in the basal cell layer of the focal corneal epithelium and in Bowman’s layer in the four eyes affected by TSPK. All of these agents except CMV may cause acute epithelial infection, sterile trophic ulceration due to basement membrane damage, deep corneal stromal immune reaction, and iritis. Recently, there is increasing tendency to be vigilant. Manifestations can be purely infectious or immunological and treatment options must be tailored to the underlying pathophysiology. Visual acuity was 5/10 Snellen lines and he had conjunctival hyperemia, chemosis, minimal nuclear cataract and proptosis on the left eye. In developed countries the incidence of ocular herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection has been reported at 21-31 per 100 000 people per year.1, 2 In the United States alone, over 300, 000 new cases of ocular HSV are reported annually.3 Although HSV can affect virtually all ocular and orbital tissue, this module will focus on corneal involvement, or herpes simplex keratitis (HSK). The patient’s past ocular history was significant for soft contact lens use.
When immunity, viral reactivation, along sensory nerve fibers down to the skin, the proliferation of certain sensory nerves in the eye of the region, the occurrence of herpes zoster, with the first one up to see the trigeminal nerve distribution area. Valaciclovir compared with acyclovir for improved therapy for herpes zoster in immunocompetent adults. Common features of herpes zoster ophthalmicus are as follows: Classic symptoms and lesions of herpes zoster. The Herpetic Eye Disease 2 (HED-2) study showed that prophylactic oral acyclovir (ACV) reduced the probability of any form of herpetic disease recurring, although this reduction in probability ceased once treatment was withdrawn. Certain pieces of documentation should be present. Rash continue for several months, neuralgia may continue for several years. Shingles and HSV different leather can be violated, residual permanent scars heal blisters.
Conjunctivitis, blepharitis, blepharo-conjunctivitis, keratitis, keratoconjunctivitis, episcleritis, dacrocystitis, corneal ulcers, styes & infected eye sockets. Lesion was debrided, subjected to viral cell culture and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for Herpes simplex and the patient started on systemic acyclovir 400 mg five times daily, topical acyclovir eye ointment five times daily and homatropine sulphate 2% eye drops thrice daily. The point of turbidity is the turbidity irregular epithelial cells gathered together, the virus may be the result of violations may also be the result of a virus in the epithelial cell proliferation. In some cases, viral inclusions can be found in its nucleus. (2) subcutaneous infiltration and nummular keratitis: surface punctate keratitis may subside on their own within a few days, and some will soon combine with each other to form a subcutaneous infiltration, and further the formation of money punctate keratitis (nummular keratitis). Our findings suggest that immunological reactions mediated by LCs may contribute to the pathogenesis of TSPK. (3) false dendritic keratitis: dendritic accompany the eye herpes zoster keratitis occur, because of the shape and HSV dendritic keratitis are very similar.
The main differences are: its mild corneal disease, corneal surface is slightly higher starting in mild, moderate fluorescein staining, unlike HSK was ditch-like depression, dyeing obvious; the end of its dendritic lesions did not HSK spherical enlargement (terminnal bulb), so called false dendritic keratitis (pseudodendritic keratitis) and distinction. (4) sticky plaque keratitis (mucous plaque keratitis): is a special type of chronic keratitis, approximately 5% of patients with herpes zoster occur such corneal disease. Its onset vary widely, from 7 days to 3 annual rash can occur from, but most of them in 2 to 7 months there. Typical changes to the corneal surface by spot-like lesion slightly elevated mucus material composition, sometimes there may be linear or dendritic lesions clear edge, usually multiple, and can occur in any part of the surface of the cornea, the size and shape every day can be changed. Acetylcysteine can be dissolved. Fluorescein was moderately colored, bright rose bengal staining. Optic neuritis has been noted in about one in 400 cases and may precede retinal disease or follow acute herpes zoster ophthalmicus infection (Figure 6).17,19,20The rightsholder did not grant rights to reproduce this item in electronic media.

Long-term sensory disturbance about 9% of patients can cause neurotrophic keratitis occur. Severe cases can lead to corneal ulcers, secondary bacterial infections, corneal abscess or hypopyon. (6) discoid stromal keratitis: a few months after the subcutaneous infiltration of the matrix can be deep development, the formation of new blood vessels rich in stromal keratitis or discoid stromal keratitis. Slit lamp microscope examination corneal Descemet’s membrane folds, light section infiltration edema and thickening, often leaving the back wall of corneal opacity zone lipid deposits, durable does not absorb, may be abnormal metabolites corneal stromal cells (Keratocyte), and this points can be differentiated with discoid stromal keratitis and corneal HSK caused by vaccinia virus. Treatment of allergic & other steroid-responsive inflammatory conditions of the palpebral & bulbar conjunctiva, cornea & anterior segment of the eye. Appear peculiar signs of skin, eye and cornea, generally difficult to diagnose.
Signs are not typical, fewer cases of rash, often misdiagnosed as HSK. Authors believe that when there keratitis or other eye symptoms, along with the following characteristics should be suspected VZV due.
