138 Possible Causes for Ocular Flutter

  • Opsoclonus-Myoclonus Syndrome

    A 67-year-old woman presented with a complex partial seizure and evolving ocular flutter, opsoclonus, myoclonus and 'cerebellar' signs, all of which improved spontaneously[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Saccadic movements are termed opsoclonus when multidirectional and ocular flutter when in horizontal plane.[n.neurology.org] It should be noted that ocular flutter and opsoclonus fall along a spectrum, and it is possible for ocular flutter to progress to opsoclonus.[aao.org]

  • Nystagmus

    […] oscillations, such as ocular flutter and opsoclonus, in frequency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] systematic investigation of the characteristics of voluntary nystagmus under a number of stimulus conditions showed that it resembles pendular nystagmus in waveform, and certain ocular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diazinon Poisoning

    On the basis of clinical observation the saccadic oscillations were presumed to be opsoclonus and ocular flutter.[jnnp.bmj.com] Fixation was interrupted by ocular flutter and occasional opsoclonus. He had a 3 Hz jaw tremor and occasional myoclonus, more prominent on the right.[jnnp.bmj.com] Ocular flutter is a saccadic oscillation similar to opsoclonus, characterised by involuntary horizontal eye movements without an intersaccadic interval.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Small-Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    However, emotional and behavioral disturbances relapsed and remitted associated with exacerbation of truncal ataxia and ocular flutter, which responded favorably to prednisolone[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Central Positional Vertigo

    In ocular flutter, the same pattern is restricted to the horizontal plane.[onlinelibrary.wiley.com] (G) A burst of saccades without an intersaccadic interval (ocular flutter), typically at a frequency of 10–15 cycles per second.[jnnp.bmj.com] Ocular flutter or hypermetric saccades can be seen as opsoclonus improves.[nature.com]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    Neuro-ophthalmic symptoms and signs are relatively common and include the following: Abnormal eye movements Opsoclonus (Ri antibodies) Ocular flutter (Ri antibodies) Cerebellar[neuro-ophthalmology.stanford.edu] […] retinopathy (CAR) antibodies – Melanoma-associated retinopathy (MAR) antibodies Optic neuropathy with disc edema and intraocular inflammation – CRMP-5 antibodies Causes of ocular[neuro-ophthalmology.stanford.edu] flutter and opsoclonus include the following: Paraneoplastic : Neuroblastoma in children: 50% of children with opsoclonus harbor a neuroblastoma; 2% of children with neuroblastoma[neuro-ophthalmology.stanford.edu]

  • Eye Muscle Disorder

    Ocular flutter consists of bursts of back-to-back saccades exclusively in the horizontal plane.[jnnp.bmj.com] Isolated ocular flutter might be seen in 8% of the population (voluntary flutter induced by convergence—incorrectly termed voluntary nystagmus), but may also be seen in multiple[jnnp.bmj.com] (A) Ocular flutter. Note back-to-back saccade without fixation between saccades. (B) Square wave jerks. Fixation of approximately 200 ms between two saccades.[jnnp.bmj.com]
