Beschreibung

Pannus (Persistent superficial keratitis, or PSK ) emerges as a grey, pink film that spreads across the eyes. It can lower or eliminate your pet’s vision. As the changes spread all over the cornea, vision is influenced. As the disease advances, the cornea will become opaque. Over time, this can lead to blindness. If your pet is suffering from this devastating disease, this concise book tells you all you need to know about the causes of the disease and treatment options.

Introduction

Pannus (Persistent superficial keratitis, or PSK ) emerges as a grey, pink film that spreads across the eyes. It can lower or eliminate your pet’s vision. As the changes spread all over the cornea, vision is influenced.

As the disease advances, the cornea will become opaque. Over time, the cornea thickens and the surface may become coarse and pitted. Occasionally pannus can affect the third eyelids. This is called atypical pannus or plasmoma. The corneal changes customarily begin on the lower outside surface of the eye. Both eyes are influenced, though the regions in each eye could be uneven. The reason for Pannus isn't well known, but one or two factors are concerned: The breed incidence suggests hereditary factors.

Ultraviolet radiation plays a very important part as a provoking factor. Dogs living at high altitudes and low altitudes are at a higher risk. Pannus seems to be due to problems with the immunological system. This may happen gradually over time, or it can involve the entire cornea inside a few months.

If your pet doesn't receive care, the illness advances in phases which will lead directly to corneal blindness. Your pet’s cornea can lose the transparency needed for sight due to pigment deposits. Because the disease typically happens in both eyes, at some point soon a loss of sight must be anticipated.

Causes

The reason behind pannus is thought to be immune-mediated response
