15 Possible Causes for Cataract, Patient Appears Chronically Ill, Plasma Fibrinogen Increased

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Considering this, we reviewed the principles and guidelines of managing cataract in patients with diabetes.[] Quantitative changes in coagulation factors in patients with diabetes involve higher plasma levels of fibrinogen (the soluble precursor of solid fibrin), coagulation factor[] DIAGNOSES: The diagnoses of Diabetic cataracts, Type 1 diabetes and Diabetic retinopathy was made.[]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    […] taking prednisone for long periods of time, these effects can be significant, including weight gain (especially around the face and trunk), moodiness, sleep disturbances, cataracts[] In conclusion, the increased risk of thrombosis in patients with renal failure is related to changes in the coagulation cascade with increased levels of fibrinogen and plasma[] […] levels of plasma fibrinogen, d -dimer and plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI)-1 [ 62 ].[]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Surgically induced scleritis is a rare complication following ophthalmologic surgery such as cataract surgery, pterygium excision, strabismus surgery, and retinal detachment[] Patients with rheumatoid arthritis appear undernourished and chronically ill. Most are anemic because of the effect of the disease on blood-forming organs.[] Prothrombotic state RA is associated with increased plasma levels of fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor, and plasminogen activator inhibitor 1, producing a prothrombotic state[]

  • Behçet Disease

    After 3 months of treatment the right eye underwent cataract surgery, after which the protocol was continued.[] Cataract surgery in patients with Behçet’s disease. J Cataract Refract Surg. 2002;28:316–320. Matsuo T, et al.[] The right eye had ciliary injection, keratic precipitate, cells and flare 3 in the anterior chamber, dense posterior subcapsular cataract, 3 cells in the vitreous, normal[]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    The most frequent forms of damage were cataracts (11.9%), and avascular necrosis (unilateral and bilateral combined 10.2%).[] Posterior subcapsular cataracts and secondary open-angle glaucoma are common AE of the prolonged GC administration.[] Side effects of corticosteroids include weight gain, thinning of the bones and skin, infection, diabetes, facial puffiness, cataracts, and death (necrosis) of the tissues[]

  • Lupus Encephalitis

    Publicity to a virus through the embryonic stage is able to inflicting psychological retardation, eye cataracts, deafness, urinary, genital, coronary heart, and intestinal[] Side effects of corticosteroids include weight gain, thinning of the bones and skin, infection, diabetes, facial puffiness, cataracts, and death (necrosis) of the tissues[] Prednisolone Long term use leads to osteoporsis, a vascular necrosis, HTN, diabetes,…etc cataracts, glucoma, weight gain, myopathy and skin changes, mood changes……..[]

  • Hodgkin Lymphoma

    People who undergo radiation or who are on long-term steroid therapy have an increased risk for cataracts.[]

  • Leprosy

    Either of these leads to: Inability to close the eyelids (lagophthalmos) Keratitis due to exposure, absence of tears, and drying, leading to corneal ulcers Iridocyclitis Cataract[] (Courtesy of Tara Ramachandra) Lagophthalmos, iridocyclitis, corneal ulceration, and/or secondary cataract due to nerve damage and direct bacillary skin or eye invasion 6[] Hereditary cataract in two families. Acta Paediatr. 1955 Sep; 44 (5):460–464. [ PubMed ] [ Google Scholar ] PEEBLES BROWN DA, MELROSE AG, WALLACE J.[]

  • Cerebral Arteriosclerosis

    […] spine, plexitis of the right side of the neck, hypertension gradually moving towards stage two, residual signs of acute bronchitis, chronic cholecystitis, early stages of cataract[] Smoking, including passive smoking, increases platelet reactivity (possibly promoting platelet thrombosis) and plasma fibrinogen levels and hematocrit (increasing blood viscosity[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Effect modifiers such as cataract were not controlled. Future studies could look at the clinical/radiological spectrum of PTB cases associated with POTB.[] Hypercoagulability in tuberculosis is attributed to decreased antithrombin lll and protein C, elevated plasma fibrinogen level, increased platelet aggregation and reactive[] Ownership interest investor J James Rowsey, MD Former Director of Corneal Services, St Luke's Cataract and Laser Institute J James Rowsey, MD is a member of the following[]
