Recent Advances in the Diagnosis and Management of Herpetic Keratitis
The author describes the detailed corneal characteristics, provides slit lamp photographs, optical coherence tomography scans and confocal microscopy results of different forms of the HSV keratitis: epithelial, stromal, necrotizing and endothelial.
Herpetic Keratitis and Corneal Endothelitis Following COVID-19 Vaccination: A Case Series
The necessity of evaluating HSV reactivation as a potential side effect of COVID-19 vaccination is emphasized because early diagnosis and timely management of herpetic lesions can potentially reduce the severity of infection.
Herpetic Keratitis, Patience is a Virtue: HSK in Immunocompromised Patient
The treatment options and outcome in a patient with herpes keratitis who also is HIV positive is detailed and concerns about treating immunocompromised patients are addressed.
A Case of Reactivation of Herpes Simplex Virus Corneal Endotheliitis Following Periocular Botulinum Toxin A Injection.
This is the first report of herpetic reactivation in the form of corneal endotheliitis with trabeculitis after Botulinum toxin-A injection for hemifacial spasm, according to the authors' knowledge.
Twenty years since the Herpetic Eye Disease Study: Lessons, developments and applications to clinical practice
The HEDS study is revisited 20 years on through the lens of published literature, to determine current best practise and look towards the future.
Adoption of Innovation in Herpes Simplex Virus Keratitis
A rational and tractable disease classification scheme that provides an immediate link between the anatomical localization of disease and the appropriate treatment, and the actualization of an electronic medical record system capable of providing evidence-based treatment algorithms at relevant points of care are proposed.
Herpes simplex virus keratitis: an update of the pathogenesis and current treatment with oral and topical antiviral agents
This review examines the existing evidence on the pathogenesis of different ophthalmic herpessimplex viral keratitis disease modalities and the role of oral and topically administered antiviral drugs in the treatment of herpes simplex viral Keratitis.
Controlling Inflammation Associated with Viral Ocular Infection
It is hypothesized that immune elements “mistakenly” target host cells containing residual viral antigens that either mimic or were not cleared by the first wave of host immunity, inciting tissue-specific inflammation and destruction.
Management of Herpes Simplex Virus Keratitis in the Pediatric Population
The pathogenesis and most current recommendations for the medical and surgical management of HSV keratitis in the pediatric population are presented.


A Case of Herpetic Keratitis After Intravitreal Triamcinolone Injection
An 81-year-old man with diabetes with severe nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy and diffuse macular edema in both eyes received bilateral intravitreal injections of 0.4 mg/0.1 mL of triamcinolone acetonide, and his cornea showed dendriform ulcers that exhibited positive fluorescein staining.
The current management of herpetic eye disease
This paper demonstrates clearly that it is necessary, irrespective of whether patients have had steroids in the past or not, to combine corticosteroids with Acyclovir in the management of herpetic disciform keratitis.
Risk factors for herpes simplex-induced keratitis: a case-control study.
There was no statistical association between HSK and male sex, atopy, corticosteroid use, intraocular trauma, contact lens wear, or herpes labialis infection.
Classification of herpes simplex virus keratitis and anterior uveitis.
There are multiple mechanisms of disease after ocular HSV infection, including damage from live virus, from immune and inflammatory mechanisms, and from structural damage in the aftermath of HSv infection (metaherpetic disease).
Bilateral herpes simplex virus keratitis in a patient with pemphigus vulgaris

  • Medicine
    Clinical and experimental dermatology
  • 1996
Pemphigus is a group of chronic blistering diseases in which acantholysis and blister formation occur within the epidermis, which is a flaccid, fragile blister which can occur anywhere.
Classification of herpes simplex virus keratitis.
By categorizing cases of HSV keratitis by their primary anatomic and pathophysiologic etiologic characteristics, clinicians can better understand and therefore treat all types of HSv ker atitis.
This report is an analysis of the occurrence of herpes simplex 1 as a complication of fever therapy based on the records of 321 patients who were treated at the San Francisco Hospital and at the University of California Hospital to determine whether the incidence of herpes is influenced by age, sex, disease or degree of the temperature induced during fever therapy.
A comparison of local and systemic acyclovir in the management of herpetic disciform keratitis.
Oral acyclovir treatment is an effective alternative to ophthalmic ointment in the management of herpetic disciform keratitis and no statistically significant differences were found in the incidence of recurrences over a three-year post-treatment period.
