121 Possible Causes for Chorioretinitis, Neck Swelling, Progressive Loss of Vision

  • Toxoplasmosis

    Here we describe a 50-year-old woman presented with a progressive, painful, submental and left neck swelling for 1 month.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Syphilis

    Glands may swell in the groin or neck, and a skin rash may develop. This second stage can last two to six weeks. The third stage is called latent or late syphilis.[discoveriesinmedicine.com] 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]

  • Cytomegalovirus Retinitis

    The patient had a prior medical history of hospitalization for fever and swelling in the neck at 3 months of age.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It shows the need for more consistent monitoring for chorioretinitis in infants with congenital CMV infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here, we report a case of CMV retinitis in a young immunocompetent male who presented with history of progressive loss of vision in both eyes despite receiving oral and intra-vitreal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rubella

    Sometimes the lymph nodes behind the ears and on the neck can swell painfully. Rubella can be dangerous for pregnant women in the first three months of pregnancy.[web.archive.org] Large choroidal excavation is a rare finding that has been described in few chorioretinal diseases, e.g., North Carolina macular dystrophy and toxoplasmosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Despite loss of the foveal light reflex and prominent pigmentary changes, neither vision nor the electroretinogram is typically affected.[aao.org]

  • Posterior Uveitis

    I had this painful acne rash along my jawline and neck, my menstrual cycle had become very irregular, my feet would swell up for no reason, the skin on my hands was all cracked[iritis.org] PURPOSE: To evaluate wide-field fundus autofluorescence (FAF) in patients with uveitis with retinal or chorioretinal involvement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This form is more difficult to treat, and is often associated with progressive loss of vision.[bausch.com]

  • Disseminated Toxoplasmosis

    Swollen lymph nodes are commonly found in the neck or under the chin, followed by the armpits and the groin.[en.wikipedia.org] See also separate Chorioretinal Inflammation article.[patient.info] If the central structures of the retina are involved there will be a progressive loss of vision that can lead to blindness.[cdc.gov]

  • Granulomatous Iritis

    The patient had previously presented with a swelling on the right side of her neck of 2-week duration.[consultant360.com] Widespread chorioretinal scarring can occur in some patients.[reviewofophthalmology.com] The posterior uveitis is often associated with progressive loss of vision.[westeyehospital.ro]

  • Histoplasmosis

    This can lead to chest pain from swelling around the heart, headaches from swelling in the brain, neck stiffness from swelling of the spinal cord, and a high fever.[batsintheattic.org] 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]

  • Secondary Glaucoma

    Over three years, the patient experienced a progressive, marked face and neck swelling, which was accompanied by dyspnoea and nocturnal coughing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Morgan CM, Webb RM, O'Connor GR (1984) Atypical syphilitic chorioretinitis and vasculitis. Retina 4: 225-231.[omicsonline.org] Initial observation for growth and judiciously timed surgical intervention prevented progression, loss of vision, and potentially the loss of the eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
