The world's medical literature on tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis (TINU) syndrome was reviewed, and data on 133 patients with TINU syndrome were identified. The median age of onset was 15 years (range 9-74 years) with a 3:1 female-to-male predominance. Common laboratory abnormalities included elevated Westergren erythrocyte sedimentation rates and(More)
We wished to analyse the frequency of Crohn's disease-linked CARD15 polymorphisms (P268S, R702W, G908R and 1007fs) in a group of Spanish patients with idiopathic uveitis. To this aim, DNA samples were obtained from 111 unrelated patients. P268S, R702W and G908R polymorphisms were detected using TaqMan Genotyping kits (Applied Biosystems), and the 1007fs(More)
OBJECTIVE Endogenous uveitis is a major cause of visual loss mediated by the immune system. The protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor type 22 (PTPN22) gene encodes a lymphoid-specific phosphatase that plays a key role in T-cell receptor (TCR) signaling. Two independent functional missense single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) located within the PTPN22(More)
Uveitis is a clinical feature of the Blau syndrome, a disease linked to CARD15 (also referred to as NOD2) mutations. Three main mutations in this gene (R334W, R334Q and L469F) have been reported as Blau syndrome risk factors, a disease that manifests uveitis as one of its clinical features. However, little is known on the involvement of this gene in(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS A pathogenic role of Th17 cells in uveitis has become clear in recent years. Therefore, in the present study, we aimed to evaluate the possible influence of the IL17A locus on susceptibility to non-anterior uveitis and its main clinical subgroups. METHODS Five IL17A polymorphisms (rs4711998, rs8193036, rs3819024, rs2275913 and rs7747909),(More)
OBJECTIVE STAT4 and IL23R loci represent common susceptibility genetic factors in autoimmunity. We decided to investigate for the first time the possible role of different STAT4/IL23R autoimmune disease-associated polymorphisms on the susceptibility to develop non-anterior uveitis and its main clinical phenotypes. METHODS Four functional polymorphisms(More)
Several ocular manifestations have been found in Crohn's disease patients, most often affecting the anterior segment. This paper presents the case of a young woman with pars plana exudates in whom Crohn's disease was later diagnosed. To the authors' knowledge, this is only the second report of Crohn's disease and concomitant pars plana exudates.
PURPOSE To describe a case of meningococcemia with anterior uveitis. METHODS Observational case report. RESULTS A 38-year-old woman developed meningococcal septicemia caused by Neisseria meningitidis type B. During her admission, she had pain in her left eye, inflammatory cells, and a fibrinous exudate in the anterior chamber and multiple posterior(More)
