Acute panuveitis with hypopyon
in Crohn's disease secondary to medical therapy: a case report
A case report to highlight the
association between rifabutin and hypopyon
A 56 year old male presented with
a one day history of blurred vision in his right eye. He had an established
diagnosis of Crohn's disease which was in remission following treatment with
rifabutin and clarithromycin. A brisk anterior uveitis with hypopyon and a mild
vitritis was detected in the right eye. The acute inflammatory episode resolved
following treatment with topical corticosteroids and withdrawal of rifabutin.
The presence of hypopyon is
atypical in uveitis associated with inflammatory bowel disease. The association
between rifabutin treatment and hypopyon uveitis is well recognised in Mycobacterium
avium paratuberculosis. However, use of rifabutin in the management of Crohn's
disease is controversial and not widely known to an ophthalmic readership.
This report highlights the
importance of keeping abreast of novel therapeutic developments in systemic
conditions likely to be encountered in ophthalmology.
