Role of Scheimpflug imaging in the diagnosis and management of keratitis caused by caterpillar seta.

Timucin OB, Baykara M - Oman J Ophthalmol (2010)

Bottom Line: Corneal infiltration was imaged as a hyper-reflective area.Lesion dimensions were measured with calipers.Scheimpflug imaging is a potential tool for localization of corneal lesions, monitoring the progress of the injury and evaluating the treatment response objectively.

ABSTRACT
A 16-year-old boy presented with a history of an accidental hit to the left eye by a butterfly (Lepidoptera). One seta fragment was found to be embedded into the cornea and inflammation secondary to penetration of caterpillar seta was seen around the seta fragment. Scheimpflug imaging was performed in the area showing caterpillar seta. Corneal infiltration was imaged as a hyper-reflective area. Lesion dimensions were measured with calipers. Scheimpflug imaging is a potential tool for localization of corneal lesions, monitoring the progress of the injury and evaluating the treatment response objectively.

Mentions: Caterpillars are the larval form of a member of the insect order Lepidoptera, which includes butterflies and moths [Figure 1]. Ophthalmia nodosa is the term used to describe ocular lesions caused by caterpillar seta,[1] the most common type of insect eye injury. Diagnosis, treatment and follow up of corneal involvement, as assessed with the slit-lamp and less commonly with the aid of serial anterior segment photography, which involves the assessment of the depth and the extent of pathologic features, is subjective and depends significantly on the experience of the examiner and is usually based on the clinical features of the corneal epithelial defect and stromal infiltration.
