27 Possible Causes for Chorioretinitis, Hyperglobulinemia, Progressive Loss of Vision

  • Toxoplasmosis

    We report the first SS-OCT images of an acute case of toxoplasmosis chorioretinitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If the central structures of the retina are involved there will be a progressive loss of vision that can lead to blindness.[web.archive.org] Eye pain Sensitivity to light (photophobia) Tearing of the eyes Blurred vision The eye disease can reactivate months or years later, each time causing more damage to the retina[cdc.gov]

  • Syphilis

    For emergency physicians it is important to be aware of iritis, uveitis, or chorioretinitis as ocular manifestations of neurosyphilis especially in this high-risk population[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We present a case of ocular syphilis after a renal transplantation involving progressive vision loss without clinically identifiable ocular disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] secondary syphilis convert 091.4 to ICD-10-CM 091.5 Uveitis due to secondary syphilis 091.50 Syphilitic uveitis, unspecified convert 091.50 to ICD-10-CM 091.51 Syphilitic chorioretinitis[icd9data.com]

  • Histoplasmosis

    Abstract PURPOSE: To analyze sequential chorioretinal changes in presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (POHS) using volumetric spectral-domain optical coherence tomography[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] loss.[eyeassociates.com] The organisms enter the bloodstream from a primary focus and become disseminated throughout the body; they may localize in bone marrow or the eyes, where they produce chorioretinitis[msdvetmanual.com]

  • Behçet Disease

    […] inflamed resulting in blurred vision, abnormal sensitivity to light (photophobia), and/or, inflammation of the thin membranous layer of blood vessels behind the retina (chorioretinitis[web.archive.org] In contrast to idiopathic cases, OPN in BD is more likely to demonstrate initial rapid progression of visual loss and more severe loss at presentation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ocular symptoms include posterior uveitis, iridocyclitis, a transient hypopyon (pus in the anterior chamber of the eye), iritis, and chorioretinitis (inflammation of the choroid[healthcentral.com]

  • Central Retinal Vein Occlusion

    Not only MALT lymphoma, but also SjS can cause secondary hyperglobulinemia. Indeed, immunoelectrophoresis-serum test showed a polyclonal pattern of hyperglobulinemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ophthalmic examinations revealed panuveitis, ischaemic central retinal vein occlusion, multiple chorioretinitis and retinal vasculitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] worsening, painless, monocular vision loss. 1,4 Evaluation and Treatment: Obtain visual acuity (vision often significantly reduced in the affected eye ( 20/200)). 2,3 Perform[emdocs.net]
