Equine recurrent uveitis (ERU) is one of the most devastating and frequent ocular diseases in the horse. Current hypothesis is that ERU is involved in a delayed hypersensitivity reaction with persistence of immunologically sensitized cells that respond to systemic re-exposure to an antigen. 1.2.6 Light micrographs have revealed a nongranulomatous response. l .2 Essentially no research has been performed with regard to ultrastructural or immunologic events in ERU. A major component of the blood…

LEPTOSPIROSIS IN HORSES: SPECIAL REFERENCE TO EQUINE RECURRENT UVEITIS
TLDR
Several diagnostic assays are employed and microscopic agglutination test has been commonly employed in several parts of the world though isolation is the gold standard test though recent diagnostic advances like PCR, real time PCR, LAMP also aid in early diagnosis of the disease.
Recurrent uveitis in horses: vitreal examinations with ultrastructural detection of leptospires.
TLDR
Interestingly, this study found leptospires after secondary and later acute episodes of spontaneous equine recurrent uveitis, suggesting a persistentLeptospiral infection is suggested as the cause of ERU.
Characterization of amyloid in equine recurrent uveitis as AA amyloid.
ptospirosis in horses
TLDR
Prevention of equine leptospirosis must rely on good hygiene practices, minimisation of rodent contact, and vaccination of other species of production and companion animals.
A retrospective histologic study of 140 cases of clinically significant equine ocular disorders
TLDR
Information presented herein may guide clinicians and pathologists, contributing to the early diagnosis of potentially vision-impairing conditions and raising the chances of successful treatment and cure.
Equine recurrent uveitis: A review of clinical assessment and management
TLDR
Equine recurrent uveitis (ERU) is a vision-threatening ocular disease that practitioners must be able to identify and manage and patient outcomes improve with early diagnosis, appropriate therapy and client education.

A 17-year-old girl had bilateral papillary conjunctivitis. Histologically, the lesion showed mature plasmacytes, plasmacytoid cells, and large mononuclear cells that exhibited myriad intracytoplasmic
Histiolymphocytic Lymphosarcoma in the Subcutis of Two Horses
TLDR
Two aged mares with histiolymphocytic lymphosarcoma had multiple rapidly proliferating tumours in the subcutis, and prominent intramitochondrial crystalline inclusions were in histiocytic tumour cells.
IgM lambda cytoplasmic crystals in three cases of immunocytoma: a clinical, cytochemical, and ultrastructural study.
TLDR
Endoplasmic reticulum-associated crystals were seen in 1-10% of the bone-marrow lymphocytes and in the lymphocytes of the peripheral blood in three cases of immunocytoma and did not stain with the PAS reaction, suggesting that the immunoglobulin was not bound to a carbohydrate group.
OBSERVATION OF KOLMER'S CRYSTALLOID OUTSIDE THE RETINA
TLDR
It is concluded that the structures in the present cases are identical with the cytoplasmic structure of the horizontal cell, and that the membranous tubes probably constitute a special form of rough surfaced endoplasmic reticulum, eventually involved in transport and/or a specialized protein synthesis.
