Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Seropositivity In African Patients Presenting To The Eye Clinic - A Preliminary To Prevention Of Occupational Exposure
CO Adeoti, AO Ashaye, MA Isawumi
African Journal of Clinical and Experimental Microbiology , 2008,
Abstract: A seroprevalence study of Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in new patients attending the eye clinic of LAUTECH Teaching Hospital in Osogbo, Osun State, Nigeria showed that twenty-nine patients 2.7%) were positive to HIV1. No patient was positive to HIV 2. There were 21 males (72.4%) and 8 females (27.6%). The clinical diagnosis in the HIV positive patients was as shown in Table 1. Cataract was found in nine cases (31.03%), herpes zoster 4 (13.79%), glaucoma, optic atrophy (nonglaucomatous) and corneal abscess were responsible for 3 (10.35%) of cases each; presbyopia, bacterial conjunctivtis 2 (6.89%) while maculopathy, orbital cellulitis and adherent leucoma were found in 1 (3.45%) patient each. These findings suggest that, patients with ocular disorders and who are otherwise healthy looking may infact be HIV seropositive and as such it may be necessary to observe all rules relating to HIV transmission so as to prevent occupational exposure and cross infection in our clinics and operating theatres. Necessary measures to reduce occupational HIV infection and post exposure treatment if exposure occurs are discussed.

Materials and methods: The anterior segments of the eyes of 181 patients with diabetes mellitus were examined. The commonest finding in the lids was warts, followed by poliosis and chalazia, and, in the conjunctiva, tortuous conjunctival vessels inferiorly (36.50%), pterygium (14.92%), and pingueculum (14.37%). Corneal sensitivity was reduced in 25 (13.80%) patients. Iris atrophy was the commonest finding in the iris. Dilatation of the pupil was delayed in 34 (18.79%) patients. Cataract was found in 119 (65.75%) patients. Forty-one (22.65%) patients had intraocular pressure greater than 21 mmHg. Seven (3.87%) patients, four (2.21%) patients, and one (0.55%) patient had seventh, third, and fourth palsy, respectively. No patient had sixth nerve palsy. Conclusion: Primary care physicians and other allied health care professionals who are first in contact with patients are enjoined to familiarize themselves with the anterior segment features of diabetes mellitus and take necessary action when they are detected.

Development of River Basin Organizations in Nigeria
O. Adeoti
Research Journal of Soil and Water Management , 2013, DOI: 10.3923/rjswm.2010.91.100
Abstract: The present poor drinking water services and sanitation problems have triggered the need to look for a better management strategy under the current water reform in Nigeria. In order to suggest a feasible option, the study examines the present water management structure in Nigeria. Findings indicate that there exist no water management structures at a lower (or sub-basin) level; there exists no water management platform that incorporates the non-government water stakeholders in the present river basin-based water management structure in Nigeria and there is no involvement of present basin management authority in sanitation and drinking water service provisions. To alleviate these problems, the study suggests; one, the rationalization of the present 12 river basin management framework into four along the four natural hydrographical areas in Nigeria, two, the creation of sub-basin management structures within the four natural hydrographical areas, three, the inclusion of key non-government water stakeholders in river basin and sub-basin management platforms and four, the devolution of drinking water and sanitation service provisions to the basin management organizations. The study closes with a set of policy recommendations that could encourage the operation of this alternative water management structure in Nigeria.

Prevalence and causes of blindness in a tropical African population
Caroline O Adeoti
West African Journal of Medicine , 2004,
Abstract: A population based survey of Egbedore Local Government area (LGA), a tropical African population in Osun State, Nigeria was conducted to determine the prevalence and causes of blindness in the community, Osun State, one of the new states created on 27th August, 1991 is situated in the southwest region of Nigeria. It has a population of about 2, 654, 244 using the population growth rate of 3.0 percent per year. Egbedore LGA has a population of 49,555 being the projected estimate of the local census done in 1991. Study design: The study was in accordance with World Health Organisation recommendations. 3204 rural dwellers were examined. The survey team was divided into: 1. Registration team 2. Retrieval team 3. Visual acuity team 4.Ocular examination team. The survey candidates, once registered were asked to go to a nearby school or health center where visual acuity and ocular examination teams completed the assignment. The retrieval team consisted of an ophthalmic nurse and a local escort who persuaded and brought to examination site registered individuals who failed to appear voluntarily. Ocular examination team performed the eye examination. Analysis of data was done using personal computer AT model and systat package for analysis. Result:- It is found that 1.18% of the population was blind by WHO standard. Cataract alone accounted for 47.4% of the blind, uncorrected aphakia 18.4%, glaucoma 15.8%, phthisis bulbi 5.3%, uveitis, optic atrophy, macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and refractive error all accounted for 2.6% each. Conclusion:- More than half of the burden of blindness is potentially curable. About a third is preventable through health education, early diagnosis and prompt treatment. A cataract outreach programme with provision of low cost aphakic glasses will go a long way in reducing blindness in this community and Osun State in general. Key Words: Prevalence, Causes, Blindness, Osun state. Résumé Introduction:- Une étude basée sur la population du government Local du milieu d'Egbedore (LGA), une population africaine tropicale dans l'Etat d'Osun, au Nigeria a été effectuée afin de décider la fréquence et les causes de la cécité dans la communuaté. L'état d'Osun, un des nouveaux états crée le 27 a ut 1991 est situé dans la région du sud ouest du Nigeria compte environ 2,654,244 habitants tout en utilisant le taux de croissance de 3, 0 pourcent par an. Egbedore LGA compte 49,555 habitants d'après le recensement de la population locale fait en 1991. Plan d'étude:- L'étude était comforme aux recommendations de l'Organisation Mondiale de la Sante. 3204 habitants rural ont été étudiés. Le groupe d'étude s'était reparti ainsi: (1) Groupe d'inscription (2) Groupe de récupération (3) Groupe d'acuité visuelle (4) Groupe d'examen oculaire. Aussi t t qu'on inscrit les sujets, ils vont directement a une école où au centre de soins, tout près, où les groupes d'acuité visuelle et examen oculaire achevent le travail.

Beliefs and attitude towards Spectacles
C.O Adeoti
Nigerian Journal of Clinical Practice , 2009,
Abstract: The study was conducted in order to discover the beliefs and attitude of the people towardswearing glasses in order to improve acceptance of glasses when prescribed thus reducing blindness and visual impairment due to uncorrected refractive errors. Across sectional study of 198 participants using a pretested structured questionnaire was conducted during the parent-teacher association (PTA)meeting of three public secondary schools chosen at random from a list of schools in Osogbo. Information obtained included the age, sex, history of using glasses, experience if using glasses,whether or not theywill allowtheirwards to use glasses if prescribed and if no,why theywill not. The data obtained was analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS 11.0 version) Computer Software. Association between variables was examined using chi-square and T-test accordingly. Level of significancewas drawn at P<0.05. Themale to female ratio was 1: 1.5. Their ages ranged between 15 and 80 years with amean of 36.20 years (SD ± 13.44). Majority, 141(71.21%) were between 21 and 50 years.All but 4(3.70%) of those that use glasses had good experiences. A significant percentage (38.38%) of the participants will not use glasses if prescribed.One hundred and two (51.52%) participantswill not allowtheir children to use prescribed glasses. Acceptance of glasses for the correction of refractive errors is not encouraging. This is particularly serious when children are concerned. A health education to enlighten the populace about the benefits ofwearing prescribed glasses and the dangers of not using themwhen needed is necessary.
