A serologic study on 48 uveitis cases is reported. Antibodies to Chlamydiae trachomatis are significantly more prevalent in acute anterior uveitis than in healthy controls or in other uveitis. This finding does not necessarily imply a direct pathogenic role for Chlamydiae in acute anterior uveitis. A common genetic predisposition to Chlamydia infection and(More)
We report here the detection of a Cat Eye Syndrome (CES) in a woman who does not exhibit the related phenotype, due to intensive surgery. The analysis of her karyotype reveals a small supernumerary bisatellited chromosome likely to correspond to a fragment of chromosome 13, 15, 21 or 22 on banding analysis. Southern blot of genomic DNA of this patient and(More)
Haidinger brushes, an entoptic phenomenon perceived only through the most central macular retina, have been used in addition to kinetic and static perimetry with the Tubingen perimeter for determining macular sparing and splitting in hemianopic patients. Seven patients were examined: 2 with a bitemporal hemianopia resulting from traumatic damage to the(More)
In Vertebrate retinal rod outer segments, a soluble "48 K" protein binds to disk membranes upon illumination in presence of ATP or GTP (H. Kühn, Biochemistry, 17, 1978, p. 4389). Its binding to photoexcited rhodopsin implies a probable role of the "48 K" protein in the ATP dependent regulation of the photoinduced enzymatic cascade which controls the(More)
An estimation of the frequency of allergic contact reactions to eyedrops was obtained by means of a prospective study on hospitalized patients. The incidence of cases with a positive patch test was 6% during hospital care. The drugs blamed were atropine (allergic contact reaction in 3% of treated patients), phenylephrine (risk 2.6%) and neomycin (risk(More)
