Queratoconjuntivitis vernal

Multiple studies on the efficacy of topical CsA for treating

vernal keratoconjunctivitis have consistently shown a
beneficial effect of the drug. The improvement took an
average of 2 weeks using 1% or 2% CsA in oil solvents, four
times daily. The duration of treatment depends on the
activity of the inflammation. A rebound phenomenon
occurred soon after discontinuation of the treatment,
indicating the need for a slow taper. Br. J. Ophthalmol., Oct
2005; 89: 1363 - 1367.

The most effective drugs, steroids, should however be

carefully administered, and only for brief periods, to avoid
secondary development of glaucoma. A 2% solution of
cyclosporine in olive oil or in castor oil should be considered
as an alternative. Eye. 2004 Apr;18(4):345-51

Queratoconjuntivitis atpica

Two prospective, randomised, double masked, placebo controlled

trials, topical CsA was found to be an effective and safe treatment in
both steroid dependent and steroid resistant cases of atopic
keratoconjunctivitis Br. J. Ophthalmol., Oct 2005; 89: 1363 - 1367.

21 patients used either topical 2% CsA or the vehicle alone four times daily
for 3 months, in addition to their usual therapy with topical corticosteroids
and/or mast cell stabilisers. The great majority of the treated patients were
able to discontinue their topical steroid treatment.
20 patients with topical steroid resistant, severe atopic
keratoconjunctivitis; they had moderately active disease despite topical
steroid therapy with or without mast cell stabilisers (nedocromil,
lodoxamide). Treatment (CsA or placebo) lasted for 28 days with a dosing
schedule of six times daily during the first 2 weeks and four times daily
during the last 2 weeks. Significant improvement was observed in the CsA
group, and none of these patients had a worsening of the disorder, in
contrast with the placebo group

Topical CsA seems to be an effective steroid sparing agent in patients

with severe atopic keratoconjunctivitis. However, its efficacy as a first
line agent during long term treatment warrants additional studies.

Topical cyclosporine in the management of

shield ulcers.
Cornea. 2004 Mar;23(2):194-200.

2%-0.05% (decreasing concentration) QID topical

cyclosporine in the treatment of 4 cases of severe,
corticosteroid-resistant, vernal keratoconjunctivitis
with shield ulcers.
Healing of ulcers occurred in 10 days with the 2%
concentration in all cases. No side effects except
for a burning sensation during administration.
Recurrences occurred when the concentration was
decreased to 0.05% in 3 cases. The recurrences
were effectively treated with 1% concentration in
all cases, and patients were stable with this
concentration for at least 6 months.

Topical cyclosporine A in severe steroid-dependent

childhood phlyctenular keratoconjunctivitis.
Am J Ophthalmol. 2006 Jan;141(1):62-66.

Children (13 eyes, mean age 9 years) with phlyctenular

keratoconjunctivitis associated with severe steroid-dependent
corneal inflammation and not responding to oral antibiotics
(cyclines or erythromycin)
Topical CsA 2% four times daily, initially combined with topical
dexamethasone for the first week. Cyclosporinemia was
determined every 3 months
Inflammation was controlled in all the eyes within 14 days .
Inflammation did not recur during CsA monotherapy, during a
mean follow-up of 12 +/- 8 months
CsA therapy was stopped in eight patients (10 eyes) after a mean
treatment duration of 13 +/- 9 months (range, 6 to 31 months),
and no recurrences occurred during 10 +/- 3 months of follow-up
Local tolerance of CsA was good. None of the patients had
detectable CsA blood levels. CsA was withdrawn in one case after
6 months, because of generalized skin rash

Queratitis central o paracentral

no infecciosa

Immune mediated, sterile central or paracentral corneal

ulceration may develop in patients with connective tissue
disease, most commonly in rheumatoid arthritis or
Sjgrens disease. These conditions need to be
distinguished from peripheral ulcerative keratitis (PUK),
because PUK is essentially a vasculitis of limbal blood
vessels and is considered to be associated with
(re)activation of systemic illness. Unlike PUK, the
central/paracentral ulcerations may not respond well to
systemic immunosuppressive therapy.
Several small, uncontrolled case series have reported the
beneficial effect of topical CsA in treating paracentral
corneal ulcers associated with connective tissue disease.
(2% or 0.5% CsA, four to six times daily) Br. J. Ophthalmol., Oct
2005; 89: 1363 - 1367.

Queratitis punctata superficial de Thygeson : safe

alternative, particularly for patients who will require
long term topical steroid treatment.
Conjuntivitis leosa: small, uncontrolled case
indicated improvement in refractory LC.
Liquen plano conjuntival:Because of its ability to
accelerate apoptosis in fibrotic tissues, topical CsA
alone was used in a few patients having conjunctival
involvement from lichen planus, and proved
effective in controlling inflammation and scarring
Conjuntivitis limbica superior: topical CsA may be
used for both increasing tear production and
controlling inflammation.

Prevention and treatment of corneal graft rejection: current practice

patterns (2004- The Cornea Society) Cornea. 2006 Apr;25(3):286-90.

All respondents used topical corticosteroids for routine postoperative

management and treatment of endothelial graft rejection.
Prednisolone, in brand or generic form, was used by 37 to 90% for
routine management in various clinical scenarios and 81 to 91% for
various manifestations of graft rejection at all time points; however,
after 6 months, 12 to 26% used loteprednol etabonate for routine
management. For routine management of high-risk grafts, 48% used
topical cyclosporine in addition to prednisolone. Compared with
previous surveys, the use of oral steroids significantly decreased for
the routine management of high-risk corneal transplants, and the use
of subconjunctival steroids decreased for the management of graft
Topical prednisolone remains the mainstay for the prevention and
treatment of corneal graft rejection; however, the role of newer
agents, loteprednol etabonate and topical cyclosporine, is expanding.

Treatment of HSV-1 stromal keratitis with

topical cyclosporin A: a pilot study.
Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol. 1999 May;237(5):435-8.

18 Eyes topical CsA + acyclovir ointment. The drugs were

tapered off gradually.
Keratitis resolved with CsA treatment in 10 of 14 patients
with non-necrotizing keratitis and in 2 of 4 with necrotizing
keratitis. Under CsA therapy, persistent or progressive
inflammation was noted in 6 of the 18 patients. These 6
patients with keratitis improved only with combined
CsA/corticosteroids. Corneal ulcers healed in 4 patients with
topical CsA, and corneal neovascularization improved in a
further 8. Except for toxic epitheliopathy, no further CsA
complications were noted.
HSV stromal keratitis can be treated successfully with CsA
eyedrops, especially in non-necrotizing disease. CsA may be
particularly helpful in the presence of steroid glaucoma,
herpetic corneal ulcers, and to taper off topical
