Hüseyin DUNDAR [1] , Can KOCASARAC [2]


Abstract

Purpose: This study aimed to describe the prevalence and factors associated with pinguecula in the western part of Turkey.

 

Methods: The study included 1443 participants over the age of 20 between January 2018 and October 2019. The presence of pinguecula on slit lamp examination was recorded. A structured questionnaire which includes basic demographic data, occupational activity, educational level, alcohol consumption and smoking, dry eye questionnaire and systemic disorders such as diabetes or hypertension was applied.

 

Results: The prevalence of pinguecula was 52.5%.Pinguecula prevalence was higher in males (58.4%) than females (46.8%).The prevalence of pinguecula significantly increased with age (p<0.001). Outdoor working, more than 2 hours of sun exposure and decreased tear break-up time (TBUT) values increase the prevalence rate of pinguecula. The pinguecula prevalence decreases as the level of education increases.

 

Conclusion: The prevalence of pinguecula varies highly around the world according to the previous studies. This is the first study which investigates the prevalence of pinguecula in Turkey.Our prevalence rate falls in the mid range. Age, gender, duration of sun exposure, TBUT values and education level are found to be related to the pinguecula prevalence.

Özet

Amaç: Bu çalışmada Ege bölgesindeki pingeukula prevalansı ve ilişkili risk faktörleri tanımlamak amaçlandı.

Yöntemler: Çalışmaya Ocak 2018 ile Ekim 2019 tarihleri arasında 20 yaş üstü 1443 katılımcı dahil edildi. Biomikroskopik muayene ile pinguekula varlığı kaydedildi. Temel demografik verileri, mesleki aktivite, eğitim düzeyi, alkol tüketimi ve sigara kullanımı, kuru göz anketi ve diyabet veya hipertansiyon gibi sistemik bozuklukları sorgulayan bir anket uygulandı.

Bulgular: Pinguekula prevalansı % 52.5 olarak tespit edildi. Pinguekula prevalansı erkeklerde (% 58.4) kadınlardan (% 46.8) daha yüksekti. Pinguekula prevalansında yaşla birlikte anlamlı derecede artış saptandı (p <0.001). Dış mekanda çalışma, 2 saatten fazla güneşe maruz kalma ve azalmış gözyaşı parçalanma süresi (TBUT) değerleri ile pinguekula prevalansının arttığı tespit edildi. Pinguekula prevalansının eğitim seviyesi arttıkça azaldığı belirlendi.

Sonuç: Pinguekula prevalansı, önceki çalışmalara göre dünya çapında büyük farklılıklar göstermektedir. Bu, Türkiye'de pinguekula prevalansını araştıran ilk çalışmadır. Bizim prevalans oranımız önceki calışmalarin ortalamalarına yakın bulunmuştur . Yaş, cinsiyet, güneşe maruz kalma süresi, TBUT değerleri ve eğitim düzeyi pinguekula prevalansı ile ilişkili bulunmuştur.
