    ABSTRACT: A 16-year-old white boy with acute systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who presented with chorea and florid retinopathy died in renal failure three months after diagnosis. Pathological studies revealed two types of lesion in both the cerebral and ocular vessels. Some meningeal and choroidal vessels showed a typical vasculitis with fibrinoid necrosis, whereas other meningeal and retinal vessels were occluded by amorphous hyaline material in the absence of vasculitis.

    ABSTRACT: Three cases of ipsilateral deafness occurred in association with herpes zoster ophthalmicus. Although our review of the literature did not disclose any identical cases, we believe that this complication may not be rare. If vertigo, tinnitus, abnormal auditory sensations, or ear pain occur with herpes zoster of any cranial nerve, an audiogram is indicated immediately to detect possible hearing loss. There is no known satisfactory treatment for sudden deafness due to herpes zoster infection.

    ABSTRACT: We report a case of a peripheral corneal ulcer that occurred to a 33 years old female with a Behçet's disease. This patient had a previous history of viral keratoconjunctivitis with subepithelial nodules one year ago. The type, aspect and localization of the ulcer suggested an immunologic origin. The evolution was favourable after systemic and local steroid therapy. The other aetiologies of such ulcer are discussed by the authors.
