To estimate the nationwide, longitudinal prevalence and incidence rates and assess treatment patterns of non-infectious uveitis (NIU) in Japan. A retrospective study. Health insurance claims’ data of patients with NIU were extracted from the Japan Medical Data Center (JMDC) database and analyzed descriptively (data extraction period, January 2011 to May 2017). Behcet’s disease (BD), Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease, and sarcoidosis were selected as the primary diseases of NIU. From 2011 to 201...

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) antigenemia assays have been widely used as adjunct tests to diagnose tissue invasive CMV diseases, including cytomegalovirus retinitis (CMVR). In this study, we examined CMVR cases to assess the presence of CMV in sera and aqueous humor and antiviral therapy received prior to the onset of CMVR. A total of 37 eyes from 26 different cases of CMVR in patients who visited Hokkaido University Hospital between 2007 and 2015 were enrolled. The diagnosis of CMVR was established ba...

Abstract Purpose To determine distinguishing features of the clinical characteristics of anterior uveitis (AU) caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV), varicella-zoster virus (VZV) and cytomegalovirus (CMV). Design Retrospective, multicenter, case series. Methods Consecutive patients with herpetic AU examined at 11 tertiary centers in Japan between January 2012 and December 2017 and who were followed for 3 months or longer were evaluated. Diagnosis was made by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for HS...

Objectives Behcet's disease (BD) is characterised by repeated acute inflammatory attacks with aphthous ulcers of the oral mucosa, uveitis of the eyes, skin symptoms, and genital ulcers. Although its aetiology is still unknown, there is evidence of the involvement of oral bacteria in systemic diseases. Various types of oral bacteria may be involved in the development and progression of BD. The present study investigated alterations in the oral flora of patients with BD in Mongolia. We collected s...
