16 Possible Causes for Background Retinopathy, Lacunar Infarction, Progressive Loss of Vision

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Any degree of retinopathy beyond background retinopathy is not allowed.[ukdmc.org] It is caused by small blood vessel damage to the back layer of the eye, the retina, leading to progressive loss of vision, even blindness.[who.int] Loss of vision and blindness in persons with diabetes can be prevented by early detection and treatment of vision-threatening retinopathy: regular eye examinations and timely[who.int]

  • Myopathy and Diabetes mellitus

    The CT and MRI studies reveal cerebral atrophy and lacunar infarcts; no consistent relation with white matter lesions (WMLs) has been observed.[jpma.org.pk] Read more on treating retinopathy Background retinopathy Background retinopathy, also known as simple retinopathy, involves tiny swellings in the walls of the blood vessels[diabetes.co.uk] Of course, the longer you have diabetes the more likely you are to have vision loss.[allaboutvision.com]

  • Arteriosclerotic Retinopathy

    Maculopathy is when the background retinopathy see above is at or around the macula.[toughaydenhenry.adafire.org] Retinal vascular calibers and the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage and cerebral infarction: the Rotterdam Study.

  • Hemorrhagic Stroke

    These clinical findings are seen in the background of severe ( malignant ) hypertension and are accompanied by retinopathy and nephropathy.[neuropathology-web.org] Small vessel disease (lacunar infarction) occurs when blood flow is blocked to a very small arterial vessel.[uhnj.org] […] of balance or coordination (ataxia), and/or loss of vision (visual field deficits).[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Susac Syndrome

    Background Susac Syndrome is an infrequent condition that is often misdiagnosed as Multiple Sclerosis.[clinmedjournals.org] Microbleeding and subcortical lacunar lesions can also be seen.[pubs.rsna.org] […] and painless blurring of vision in the left eye.[aao.org]

  • Laron Syndrome

    The other patient has background diabetic retinopathy and has developed, progressively, exudates, microaneurisms, hemorrhages and clinically significant macular edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] One patient demonstrated a lacunar infarct and another periventricular high signals on T2-weighted images. Two patients had cerebellar atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The symptoms of Cockayne Syndrome that affect the eyes (ocular) may include progressive clouding of the lens of the eyes (cataracts), loss of vision because of the wasting[rarediseases.org]

  • Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion

    BACKGROUND: Branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) is the second most common cause of retinal vascular abnormality after diabetic retinopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Second, a long‐term impairment of retinal microvasculature could lead directly to cerebral small‐vessel disease and is characterized by lacunar infarcts and white matter lesions[jaha.ahajournals.org] Treatment usually won’t cure diabetic retinopathy nor does it usually restore normal vision, but it may slow the progression of vision loss.[hawaiivisionspecialists.com]
