The incidence of symptomatic corneal infiltrates is around five per 100 wearers, although study results vary hugely.
Signs are conjunctival redness and limbal injection and there may be multiple sub-epithelial infiltrates with no epithelial staining.
Infected infiltrates are caused by microbial keratitis (MK), (Figure 4), a sight-threatening condition which is, unfortunately, associated with contact lens wear.
Corneal infiltrates may also occur with adenoviral conjunctivitis (Figure 6).
A B-cell PTLD was diagnosed by endobronchial biopsies, while a perivascular lymphoid infiltrate was found by TBB.
Most of the perivascular infiltrate in the superficial dermis was composed of mononuclear cells, primarily lymphocytes and macrophages.
Pronounced chronic infiltrate and plasma cells were also more common in the deep dermis than in the superficial dermis at every stage of lymphedema.
All cellular infiltrate in fibrous septa surrounding subcutaneous adipose tissue was mononuclear, and its prevalence increased with lymphedema stage, particularly between nonlymphedematous controls and stage 1 lymphedema (4% to 25%).
In the superficial dermis, substantial decreases were observed between the first (Figure 1B) and second (Figure 1E) biopsies, both in the prevalence of chronic perivascular infiltrate (100% to 59%, p = 0.
The final pathology results of a third biopsy revealed a dense, diffuse infiltrate of atypical lymphocytes that extended from the mid-dermis through the underlying subcutaneous tissue and onto the adjacent cartilage (figure 3).
These lesions resemble a mild inflammatory dermatosis, and they feature a perivascular lymphocytic infiltrate in the papillary dermis and a mildly hyperplastic nonspongiotic epidermis that can exhibit focal hyperkeratosis or parakeratosis.
The plaque stage is characterized by a band-like infiltrate of polymorphous atypical lymphocytes within the papillary and superficial reticular dermis (figure 3).
