  • Papilledema

    However, since papilledema was absent in 41% of the children with hydrocephalus, papilledema's absence does not ensure the absence of hydrocephalus, especially in younger[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If the only underlying cause is weight gain, ultimately the treatment is to lose about 10% of the total weight.[neec.com] Presentation : Visual loss is bilateral, symmetric, painless, gradual and progressive. Dyschromatopsia, particularly red desaturation, is a common early sign.[patient.info]

  • Carcinomatosis

    CASE DESCRIPTION: The first patient in this report was a 54-year-old woman with recurrent aseptic meningitis and hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Visual loss may occur in up to 30% of these patients, usually rapid, painless, and unilateral, and often progressing to the other eye. 1 Only a few cases of meningeal carcinomatosis[nature.com] gain Loss of appetite Digestive problems like nausea and constipation Extreme tiredness Other conditions can cause these problems, too, so it’s important to see an experienced[medstargeorgetowncancer.org]

  • Progressive Loss of Visual Acuity

    Other possible causes include injury to the eye, various types of inflammation or brain tumor, meningitis, poison or drugs, and hydrocephalus.[opt.uh.edu] However, the five rounds of IV steroids I received over 18 months came with some pretty tough side effects, including massive weight gain.[everydayhealth.com] Introduction • Patients with gradual loss of vision present with chronic, slowly progressive loss of vision which is generally painless. • Visual loss is usually bilateral[slideshare.net]
