Ocular findings in Whipple's disease.

Abstract

A 53-year-old man with treated, biopsy-proven Whipple's disease is described during the exacerbation of the disease, and several new findings not previously reported in association with this disease are presented. The unique combination of ocular signs included uveitis, glaucoma, epiphora, superficial punctate keratitis, and an unusual fibrovascular pannus involving the anterior chamber angles and corneal periphery of both eyes. These ocular abnormalities emphasize the need for thorough ophthalmologic evaluation of all patients with Whipple's disease.
