609 Possible Causes for Papilledema, Uveitis

  • Tuberculosis

    The infiltrates along with the ulcer and anterior uveitis responded dramatically to the revised treatment and resolved completely within 7 days of therapy.[] Uveitis caused by TB is the local inflammatory manifestation of a previously acquired primary systemic tubercular infection.[] Keratitis, iridocyclitis, intermediate uveitis, retinitis, scleritis, and orbital abscess are within the spectrum of ocular disease.[]

  • Cryopyrin-Associated Periodic Syndrome

    Six patients (46%) had papilledema and a further 2 (15%) had optic disc pallor. MRI brain scan was normal in all patients.[] At the age of 35, he presented posterior uveitis, several episodes of conjunctivitis, and progressive loss of visual acuity.[] Skin rash and eye diseases, such as conjunctivitis and uveitis, were positively correlated with this mutation.[]

  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension

    This article reviews the treatment of papilledema-related visual loss in pseudotumor cerebri syndrome, one of the most common causes of papilledema encountered by neurologists[] Subsequent fluoroscein angiography showed marked leakage of the dye from engorged iris vessels in both anterior chambers from uveitis.[] When papilledema is absent, the diagnosis becomes less clear.[]

  • Brain Abscess

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

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Papilledema (late) e.[] When clinicians see patients with meningitis and bilateral anterior uveitis, sterile reactive uveitis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of uveitis.[] […] sinusitis, pneumonia, endocarditis, DM, alcoholism Clinical Fever–95% at presentation, nuchal rigidity–88% at presentation, neurologic signs—confusion, lethargy, seizures, papilledema[]

  • Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis

    Four patients presented with blurring and transient obscuration of vision with papilledema, headache, tinnitus, and vomiting.[] […] by rapid deterioration of vision and fulminant retinal vasculitis that manifests as diffuse sheathing of retinal vessels, macular edema, papillitis, vitritis and anterior uveitis[] He had stage 2 papilledema and other clinical and neurological examinations were normal. He had used the drug for nearly 2 years, two to three times a day.[]

  • Malignant Hypertension

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

  • Papilledema

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

  • Posterior Uveitis

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

  • CINCA Syndrome

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