Abstract

OBJECTIVES/SPECIFIC AIMS: To demonstrate the prevalence of ocular complications in patients suffering with Mycoplasma Induced Rash and Mucositis (MIRM). METHODS/STUDY POPULATION: In this retrospective observational study, we identified all patients in our hospital database who were diagnosed with MIRM. Diagnosis was confirmed by clinical information and positive Mycoplasma pneumoniae serology. Only patients with available records with formal ophthalmology consults were included. Clinical and laboratory data were collected from our electronic medical record system to capture key components of their clinical course. RESULTS/ANTICIPATED RESULTS: A total of 12 patients satisfied all inclusion and exclusion criteria and were included in our study. The average age of our included patients was 21.2 ± 14.7 years, and the majority were male vs. female (66.7% vs. 33.3%). In all 24 eyes, the only acute ocular findings included conjunctival hyperemia (n=20, 83.3%), meibomitis (n=4, 16.7%), and conjunctival epithelial defects (n=1, 4.2%). None of the patients required or were recommended to receive an amniotic membrane transplantation in the acute phase. Only 2 patients were followed in the chronic phase, one of whom showed evidence of meibomitis in both eyes. Otherwise, no other chronic complications were seen in either patient with chronic follow-up. DISCUSSION/SIGNIFICANCE OF IMPACT: Ocular complications from MIRM may be much milder in comparison to ocular complications found in other bullous and inflammatory conditions such as Stevens-Johnson Syndrome or Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis. Understanding MIRM’s specific sequelae is important in understanding disease manifestation and prognosis in order to better inform acute and chronic management.
