194 Possible Causes for Astrocytic Gliosis, Loss of Vision

  • Primary Optic Atrophy

    A small degree of gliosis is usually present and primarily represents a proliferation of astrocytes.[] This patient’s optic nerve condition was classified as a significant problem where the risk of central vision loss without treatment was possible.[] Damage to an optic nerve can cause vision loss. The type of vision loss and how severe it is depends on where the damage occurs. It may affect one or both eyes.[]

  • Posterior Cerebral Artery Occlusion with Infarction

    Review Topic QID: 107142 4 Reactive gliosis and vascular proliferation 5 Cyst formed by astrocyte processes M1 Select Answer to see Preferred Response PREFERRED RESPONSE 5[] Although other types of stroke may also result in visual impairments, if the patient’s primary symptom is loss of vision they have likely suffered a PCA stroke.[] This activity is known as replacement gliosis. MYELIN Myelin is a white lipid-protein complex that provides insulation along a nerve process.[]

  • Globoid Cell Leukodystrophy

    ] a metabolic disorder of infancy or early childhood characterized by spasticity, seizures, and rapidly progressive cerebral degeneration, massive loss of myelin, severe astrocytic[] A five-year-old white male presented with a history of progressive loss of vision that was subsequently followed by progressive corticospinal dysfunction.[] loss that may lead to blindness seizures vomiting (2, 4) Symptoms of late-onset Krabbe disease Symptoms of late-onset Krabbe disease include: vision problems and loss of[]

  • Cortical Blindness

    WHO grade IV astrocytoma characterized by hemorrhagic necrosis, endothelial proliferation, crossing of the corpus callosum, ring-enhancement on imaging, and poor survival gliosis[] In most cases, the complete loss of vision is not permanent and the patient may recover some of their vision (cortical visual impairment).[] vision loss, whereas CVI implies a partial vision loss.[]

  • Occipital Lobe Tumor

    WHO grade IV astrocytoma characterized by hemorrhagic necrosis, endothelial proliferation, crossing of the corpus callosum , ring-enhancement on imaging, and poor survival gliosis[] loss of vision (after 21st second).[] They may also cause headache, double vision and loss of pituitary function.[]

  • Neuromyelitis Optica

    In active multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions astrocytes reveal changes of reactive protoplasmatic or fibrillary gliosis.[] Symptoms related to eye: Blurring of vision that could lead to complete loss of vision in one or both the eyes. Loss of color vision. Pain in eye movements.[] Optic neuritis can affect one or both eyes and the symptoms can include pain on moving the eye, blurred vision, loss of colour vision or even complete loss of vision.[]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa 30

    These have been mistaken for astrocytic hamartomas 49 and are consistent with disc drusen due to aberrant axoplasmic transport. 50, 51 In a survey of 117 RP patients, 52 10%[] […] of vision.[] Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field.[]

  • Demyelinating Disease

    As lesions evolve, there is prominent astrocytic proliferation (gliosis).[] Signs and symptoms include loss of vision, weakness and paralysis of the extremities, and loss of sensation.[] Astrocytic gliosis in plaques is usually evident in sections stained with haematoxylin and eosin, but can be observed more obviously by immunolabelling the astrocytes—for[]

  • Neonatal Adrenoleukodystrophy

    gliosis Metachromatic leukodystrophy: accumulation of PAS and Luxol fast blue / LFB macrophages that show brown metachromasia with acidified cresyl violet, toluidine blue[] Other symptoms frequently seen are loss of vision, seizures, poorly articulated speech, difficulty swallowing, deafness, problems with gait and coordination, fatigue , increased[] XALD: gliosis and inflammation XALD. Lipid macrophages, lymphocytes, and reactive astrocytes in the white matter.[]

  • Classic Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Syndrome

    Neuropathologically, all forms are characterized by neuronal loss, gliosis with astrocytic plaques and accumulation of tau-immunoreactive neurofibrillary tangles in specific[] […] blurred vision, difficulties in looking up or down, double vision, light sensitivity, burning eyes, or other eye trouble; 3) slurred speech; and 4) various mental complaints[] The disease is characterized neuropathologically by gliosis with astrocytic plaques, accumulation of tau-immunoreactive neurofibrillary tangles and neuronal loss in specific[]
