Zusammenfassung

Die Hepatitis-B oder Serumhepatitis ist eine im Bereich der Ophthalmologie wenig beachtete Erkrankung. An enukleierten Spenderaugen mit nachgewiesener Hepatitis B-Viraemie wurde das Vorkommen von HBSAG in Gewebseluaten verschiedener Kompartimente des Auges mit Hilfe der Elisa-Technik bestimmt. Hepatitis-B-Virus konnte nicht nur in den gefäßführenden Strukturen, sondern auch im Hornhautepithel und im Kammerwasser nachgewiesen werden.

Abstract

In ophthalmology not too much attention is given to infectious disease due to hepatitis B virus. On enucleated donors' eyes with known hepatitis B viraemia we determined the distribution of HBSAG (hepatitis B surface antigen). Virus-associated antigen could not only be demonstrated in vascularized structures, but also in corneal epithelium and anterior chamber fluid.
