1,092 Possible Causes for Focal Atrophy of Choroid, Parathyroid Hormone Increased, Vitamin C Decreased

  • Third Trimester Pregnancy

    The concomitant phenomenon of a third trimester pregnancy with a significant degree of pelvic organ prolapse is extremely rare. We report on a patient with pelvic organ prolapse complicating third trimester pregnancy treated by concomitant cesarean hysterectomy and abdominal sacrocolpopexy. A 30-year-old woman,[…][]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The concept of "structural plasticity" has emerged as a potential mechanism in neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases such as drug abuse, depression, and dementia. Chronic alcoholism is a progressive neurodegenerative disease while the person continues to abuse alcohol, though clinical and imaging studies show[…][]

  • Hemochromatosis

    The spectral domain optical coherence tomography showed retinal pigmentary epithelial atrophy associated with irregularities and focal interruption of the ellipsoid zone.[] The proposed mechanisms include: Increased levels of a fragment of parathyroid hormone (PTH 44-68) seen in this population may lead to arthropathy.[] […] iron intake indications standard of treatment to reduce iron overload methods reduced consumption of red meat avoid raw shellfish limit supplemental vitamin C avoid excessive[]

  • Childhood Celiac Disease

    Childhood celiac disease may lead to a failure of statural growth. After institution of a gluten-free diet most patients exhibit catch-up growth. Catch-up growth is a remarkable phenomenon characterized by a supranormal height velocity. One of the hypothetical mechanisms of catch-up growth is that an increased[…][]

  • Parathyroid Adenoma

    The lesion demonstrated overlying focal choroidal atrophy (n 63, 35%) and retinal pigment epithelium atrophy (n 88, 49%).[] Laboratory tests will usually show increased calcium and parathyroid hormone levels.[] With vitamin D repletion (curve C), basal PTH as a percentage of maximal PTH decreased to a very low value, which, in turn, resulted in a normal basal PTH level.[]

  • Vitamin D Deficiency

    Cross sectional studies demonstrated that prevalence of HF is increased in patients with Vitamin D deficiency or parathyroid hormone (PTH) plasma level increase, whereas longitudinal[] D. a,b For example, sunscreen with a sun protection factor of 15 can decrease vitamin D synthesis by 98%. c Geography and its impact on yearly sunlight exposure is a well-known[] Increased parathyroid hormone (PTH) is also known to be associated with heart failure.[]

  • Vitamin Deficiency

    Vitamin D (13.7   1.8 to 19.1   1.1 ng/ml, p   0.017) and osteocalcin (15.3   1.7 to 25.4   2.7 ng/ml, p   0.025) rose significantly, whereas the parathyroid hormone remained[] RESULTS: There was a significant decrease in plasma levels of vitamins A, C and E and in serum levels of zinc in patients with SCA as compared with controls (P CONCLUSION:[] When the circulating level of vitamin D is lower, parathyroid hormone levels increase, resulting in decreased mineralization of bones.[]

  • Secondary Hyperparathyroidism

    Remarkably, the parathyroid-Dicer mice failed to increase serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) after acute hypocalcemia and in parathyroid organ cultures.[] In terms of malnutrition-inflammation status, a decrease in C-reactive protein was noted, although other microinflammation parameters, such as activated monocytes (CD14 /CD16[] Overall, the mean intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) increased from 64.2 pmol/l to 79.6 pmol/l under conventional therapy and decreased after cinacalcet initiation to 44.0 []

  • Malabsorption Syndrome

    […] decreased serum level of calcium is a safe and cost-effective treatment in such a parathyroid hormone-deficient hypoparathyroid patient with malabsorption syndrome.[] For these reasons, vitamin C supplements were discontinued for the case patient on admission.[] Altay C, Cetin M: Oral treatment in selective vitamin B 12 malabsorption. J Pediatr Hematol Oncol 1997;19:245–246.[]
