Seawood kid treated for Carunculitis at AEHI

Based on recommendation from friendly neighbours, Sunita Kampani* from Seawood presented her kid at Advanced Eye Hospital Institute (AEHI) located at Sanpada, Navi Mumbai with the eye complaint of swelling with pus discharge in left eye.



9-year-old Bunty underwent a detailed eye check-up at AEHI. it was seen that the lacrimal caruncle (inner red part of the eye) had a swelling with pus discharge in his left eye. The eye pressure was well within the normal range. Retina and other structures were within the normal limits.

Bunty was referred to Dr. Vinayak Damagude, a Cornea & Cataract specialist at AEHI, who then observed his left eye through the slit lamp. There was also papillary reaction on the lower lid of his left eye. He diagnosed him with Carunculitis.



Caruncule is the tiny, red, round nodule at the corner of the eye (the medial canthus). It is made of skin, sebaceous, sweat glands, hair follicles and accessory lacrimal tissues.

Carunculitis is the inflammation of this nasal structure. Most common cause in children is infection due to fingering of the eyes.

Bunty was recommended to do Hot Fomentation for a week and was prescribed with anti-bacterial ointment along with antibiotic eye drops. Some pus was also drained from the swelling.

Bunty was asked to follow up after a week.

On the follow up day, Bunty left eye showed immense improvement and hence, Dr. Damgude asked his mother to let the prescribed medication and eye care instructions be followed for another 15 days.

After a month, Bunty visited AEHI with enthusiasm and thanked Dr. Damgude.
