65 Possible Causes for Headache, Optic Disc Pallor, Visual Field Test Abnormal

  • Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy

    A history of worsening headaches, trauma, nutritional deficits (alcohol abuse), previous demyelinating disease, cancer, infiltrative orbital or lung disease, sexually transmitted[eyewiki.aao.org] Fundoscopic examination showed hyperemic papilla on the right eye and optic disc pallor on the left eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Vision loss is, typically painless but may be associated with headache, Uhthoff's symptom (transient worsening with warmth or exercise), eye discomfort, photopsias, limb parasthesias[ifond.org]

  • Papilledema

    Abstract Headaches associated with papilledema may be both life-threatening as well as vision-threatening.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Visual fields can be tested more formally by an ophthalmologist using vision grids.[drugs.com] Atropic Papilledema  Onset of optic disc pallor (secondary optic atrophy) .  Decrease in disc haemorrhage.  Narrowing of blood vessels and their ensheating.  Optic disc[slideshare.net]

  • Glaucoma

    Other symptoms include headache, redness of the eye and swelling, sighting of multicoloured halos and uveitis.[symptoma.com] (The visual field is the area of space a person can see at a given instant without moving the eyes.) These abnormalities may be an early sign of disease.[nei.nih.gov] disc pallor in humans. 1 - 5 Current pathophysiologic concepts of early glaucoma are based primarily on experimentally induced elevations of ocular pressure in laboratory[doi.org]

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    All patients suffered from severe headache and nausea. The primary lesion was histologically diagnosed as lung adenocarcinoma in each case.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of optic disc and optical coherence tomography showed an atrophy of temporal retinal nerve fiber layer Click here to view Discussion LC, also referred to as carcinomatous[e-tjo.org] A patient with uvular cancer presented with lower limb weakness and paresthesiae, headache, neck stiffness and multiple cranial palsies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension

    Common causes of headache in the puerperium are migraine headache and tension headache; other causes include pre-eclampsia/eclampsia, post-dural puncture headache, cortical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Visual field tests were normal in four eyes.[nature.com] pallor in the presence of continuing swelling 24, 25 (Fig. 3 ).[doi.org]

  • Occipital Lobe Tumor

    When the headache returns, the concern is if the tumor is back or if it is precipitating migraine headaches.[medhelp.org] With maturity, more rigorous computerized visual field tests are possible.[childhoodbraintumor.org] For the past few days my neck has become stiff and the headache as radiated to a cluster headache in my frontal lobe.[healthboards.com]

  • Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma

    Acute headache is a common presenting symptom in the acute medical unit. We present a case of Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma (AACG) presenting with acute severe headache.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of optic disc Perimetry: visual field testing to detect blind spots in the visual field Therapy Indication: IOP 25 mm Hg Conservative ( first-line ) : topical prostaglandins[amboss.com] […] demonstrated by at least two of the following: headache has developed in temporal relation to the onset of the glaucoma headache has significantly worsened in parallel with[ichd-3.org]

  • Foster-Kennedy Syndrome

    A 44-year-old man was examined for headache and diplopia. Left eye showed limitation of abduction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The original description of the Foster Kennedy syndrome included the clinical triad of optic disc pallor in one eye, optic disc edema in the other eye, and reduced olfaction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 49-year-old woman with a 6-year history of headaches was found to have a pale right optic disc with narrowed retinal arterioles and a congested left optic disc.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuromyelitis Optica

    TACs are a rare group of headache disorders characterized by severe unilateral headache in the V1 distribution of the trigeminal nerve and autonomic symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Two patients who presented with clinical optic neuritis also had abnormal VEPs and optic disc pallor.[doi.org] Our cases support the recognition of NMOSD as a cause of secondary headache.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chiasmal Syndrome

    The characteristic presentation consisted of progressive impairment of vision without headache or abnormal plain skull x-ray films in patients with weight loss or diabetes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This can be tested easily at bedside. Visual fields The hallmark abnormality associated with chiasmal compression is a bitemporal superior quadrantanopsia.[emedicine.medscape.com] Figure 1: Humphrey automated static perimetry shows complete bitemporal hemianopia Click here to view Figure 2: (a) Fundus photography showing optic disc pallor in the left[ijo.in]
