  • Brain Abscess

    He presented with fever, worsening headache and papilledema. An urgent magnetic resonance image (MRI) showed an occipital abscess with midline shift.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He was on steroids for the past six years for uveitis. Haematology reports indicated elevated WBC and platelet count.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Classically, headache, nausea, vomiting, lethargy, seizures, personality changes, papilledema, and focal neurologic deficits develop over days to weeks; however, in some patients[msdmanuals.com]

He had used the drug for nearly 2 years, two to three times a day.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malignant Hypertension

    One child, presenting atypically with papilledema and fundal hemorrhages from malignant hypertension and benign intracranial hypertension from chronic iron-deficiency anemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A common ocular manifestation of sarcoidosis is anterior uveitis. Posterior uveitis is uncommon and optic disc edema is rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] One specific type of emergency is malignant hypertension, in which there are exudates and/or retinal hemorrhages or papilledema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Papilledema

    Chronic papilledema may lead to blindness.[symptoma.com] […] arteritis) * Orbital optic-nerve tumors * Graves’ ophthalmopathy: History of thyroid dysfunction; may be associated with lid lag, proptosis, increased intraocular pressure * Uveitis[checkorphan.org] Slit lamp examination showed mild bilateral anterior uveitis. Sarcoidosis was suspected and confirmed. The disc edema and uveitis responded to oral prednisolone.[thamburaj.com]

  • Posterior Uveitis

    This book presents the salient features of optic nerve disorders, enc- passing optic neuritis, papilledema, ischemic optic neuropathies, c- pressive and in?[books.google.com] Posterior uveitis is a major cause of ocular morbidity worldwide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] include anterior uveitis (either granulomatous or nongranulomatous), salt-pepper retinopathy, vitritis, retinitis, multifocal choroiditis, neuroretinitis, optic neuritis, papilledema[ophthalmologymanagement.com]

  • CINCA Syndrome

    Gallen (CH) A unilateral vision loss with papilledema is seldom seen during childhood.[thieme-connect.com] Posterior uveitis accounts for about half of all cases of childhood uveitis and the etiology may be determined in about two thirds of cases.[healio.com] Sensorineural involvement includes inflammatory ocular manifestations (uveitis, papillary involvement and optical neuritis, which can lead to blindness) and often progressive[orpha.net]
