Additional Report on the Occurrence of Cataracts with Atopic Dermatitis

Additional Report on the Occurrence of Cataracts with Atopic Dermatitis Abstract In a previous paper1 a report was made of a study of the occurrence of cataracts among 1158 patients who had atopic dermatitis. Study of the eyes was done by means of the slit-lamp microscope in order to determine the presence of early changes in the crystalline lens which did not cause appreciable disturbance of vision. Of these 1158 patients, 136 were found to have structural changes in the lens consistent with the type of change shown to be associated with atopic dermatitis. Of this group of 136 patients with such changes in the lens, 79 had grossly obvious cataracts that impaired the vision, while 57 had cataractous changes detected only by means of the slit-lamp microscope. This report is concerned with the subsequent course of the ocular and dermal conditions of the 57 patients who had cataractous changes originally detected only by examination with the slit-lamp microscope.

Of this group of 136 patients with such changes in the lens, 79 had grossly obvious cataracts that impaired the vision, while 57 had cataractous changes detected only by means of the slit-lamp microscope. This report is concerned with the subsequent course of the ocular and dermal conditions of the 57 patients who had cataractous changes originally detected only by examination with the slit-lamp microscope.
