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.[] In loco, we genotyped 140 hypertensive control individuals and 28 hypertensive patients with ischemic stroke.[] 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[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Any degree of retinopathy beyond background retinopathy is not allowed.[] […] heart disease, ischemic stroke).[] 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.[]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

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

  • MELAS Syndrome

    The main clinical ophthalmologic features were bilateral ptosis, chronic external ophthalmoplegia, diffuse choroidal atrophy, atypical pigmentary retinopathy with macular[] 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.[] Repeated stroke-like episodes can progressively damage the brain, leading to vision loss, problems with movement, and a loss of intellectual function (dementia).[]

  • Acute Hypertensive Retinopathy

    Hypertensive Retinopathy[] , 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[] 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.[]

  • Central Retinal Artery Occlusion

    Severe vaso-occlusive retinopathy may be an earlier manifestation of SLE without elevated level of APAs.[] Subanalysis for only ischemic stroke showed similar, magnified IRRs in the risk periods compared with all events.[] 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[]

  • Eales Disease

    PURPOSE: Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (PDR) and Eales' Disease (ED) have different aetiologies although they share certain common clinical symptoms including pre-retinal[] We report the case of a patient with Eales' disease and ischemic stroke, and we review the neurologic manifestations of this primarily ophthalmologic vasculopathy.[] 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).[]

  • Peripheral Vasoproliferative Retinopathy

    Flynn, William Tasman Springer Science & Business Media, ٠٦‏/١٢‏/٢٠١٢ - 162 من الصفحات 0 مراجعات Retinopathy of Prematurity presents a review of the current knowledge of this[] Epidemiology of ischemic stroke in patients with diabetes: the greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Stroke Study. Diabetes Care 2005;28:355–359.[] vision loss. 5 Exudative vasculopathy manifesting as Coats-like disease, VPT, or CNVM complicates approximately 5% of RP cases. 5,6 The pathophysiology of the different manifestations[]

  • Hypertensive Retinopathy

    Hypertensive retinopathy[] The spots are indication of small localized ischemic stroke of retinal blood vessels due to elevated blood pressure.[] 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,[]

  • 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.[] Ischemic stroke should be differentiated from brain hemorrhage, brain abscess, and other structural lesions.[] Optic neuropathy is a rare ophthalmological complication of SLE that can progress to total bilateral vision loss if not identified and treated rapidly.[]
