477 Possible Causes for Ischemic Stroke, Progressive Loss of Vision, Retinopathy

  • Hypertension

    High blood pressure increases the risk of both development of diabetic retinopathy and its progression.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In loco, we genotyped 140 hypertensive control individuals and 28 hypertensive patients with ischemic stroke.[dx.doi.org] vision loss Peripheral arterial disease causing leg pain with walking (claudication) Outpouchings of the aorta, called aneurysms About 1% of people with high blood pressure[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Any degree of retinopathy beyond background retinopathy is not allowed.[ukdmc.org] […] heart disease, ischemic stroke).[doi.org] It is caused by small blood vessel damage to the back layer of the eye, the retina, leading to progressive loss of vision, even blindness.[who.int]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    She developed proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) during the course of disease. She was promptly managed with pan retinal photocoagulation (PRP).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Single-gene disorders related to ischemic stroke seem to be an important cause of stroke in young patients without known risk factors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 35-year-old man presented with history of painless, progressive loss of vision in the left eye for the past 7 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • MELAS Syndrome

    The main clinical ophthalmologic features were bilateral ptosis, chronic external ophthalmoplegia, diffuse choroidal atrophy, atypical pigmentary retinopathy with macular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present the case of a 63-year-old female in whom the symptoms of MELAS were initially misdiagnosed as episodes of recurrent ischemic strokes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Repeated stroke-like episodes can progressively damage the brain, leading to vision loss, problems with movement, and a loss of intellectual function (dementia).[sites.google.com]

  • Acute Hypertensive Retinopathy

    Hypertensive Retinopathy[slideshare.net] , 10% of patients as having ischemic stroke, 2.4% having intracerebral bleed.2 Renal Involvement On ultrasonography, 10 patients (20%) had medical renal parenchymal disease[japi.org] Case History A 59 year-old man presented with a two-month history of painless, progressive loss of vision in both eyes, affecting his right eye more than his left.[westcoastretina.com]

  • Central Retinal Artery Occlusion

    Severe vaso-occlusive retinopathy may be an earlier manifestation of SLE without elevated level of APAs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subanalysis for only ischemic stroke showed similar, magnified IRRs in the risk periods compared with all events.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The unusual aspect to this case is the mechanism of vision loss, as the authors hypothesize that there was vascular infiltration of the infection resulting in the central[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Eales Disease

    PURPOSE: Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (PDR) and Eales' Disease (ED) have different aetiologies although they share certain common clinical symptoms including pre-retinal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report the case of a patient with Eales' disease and ischemic stroke, and we review the neurologic manifestations of this primarily ophthalmologic vasculopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In rare cases, the retina may get detached leading to loss of vision. There can also be damage to the most sensitive part of the retina (optic disk).[modasta.com]

  • Peripheral Vasoproliferative Retinopathy

  • Hypertensive Retinopathy

    Hypertensive retinopathy[en.wikipedia.org] The spots are indication of small localized ischemic stroke of retinal blood vessels due to elevated blood pressure.[symptoma.com] Those symptoms may include: Double vision Headaches Partial or total loss of vision Diagnosis of Hypertensive Retinopathy After a thorough medical examination of the eyes,[njvision.net]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Case report: We reported a 36-year-old female with severe vaso-occlusive retinopathy that manifested in the absence of antiphospholipid syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ischemic stroke should be differentiated from brain hemorrhage, brain abscess, and other structural lesions.[emedicine.medscape.com] Optic neuropathy is a rare ophthalmological complication of SLE that can progress to total bilateral vision loss if not identified and treated rapidly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
