A Clinical Case from the Archives : 23/02/2008

This horse is presented because of an unusual ocular appearance, though the animal doesn’t seem particularly bothered by it. What is happening and what might your treatment be?

There is a dense grey-white opacity which is deep in the cornea – note the stromal oedema overlying it – a presumptive diagnosis of immune mediated endothelitis, with a somewhat lower iop (13mmHg compared with 18mmHg in the other eye). We used topical Pred Forte through a lavage system which worked to a degree, so moved to cyclosporine in corn oil again through the lavage, which has amleiorated the condition completely.
