1,036 Possible Causes for Progressive Loss of Vision, Retinopathy, Stroke

  • Hypertension

    This can cause an ischemic stroke and hypertension is the most important cause of this type of stroke and also transient ischemic attacks.[world-heart-federation.org] High blood pressure increases the risk of both development of diabetic retinopathy and its progression.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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

    stroke subtypes, including 152 630 individuals and 2280 stroke events ( Figure 4 ).[doi.org] Any degree of retinopathy beyond background retinopathy is not allowed.[ukdmc.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

    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] She developed proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) during the course of disease. She was promptly managed with pan retinal photocoagulation (PRP).[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]

  • Hypertensive Retinopathy

    Incident events of any stroke, cerebral infarction, and hemorrhagic stroke were identified and validated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypertensive retinopathy[en.wikipedia.org] 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]

  • Malignant Hypertension

    Ea was calculated from stroke volume and systolic BP and adjusted by body area (EaI).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here, we report the case of a patient with SLE and malignant hypertension with hypertensive retinopathy that initially presented without clinical evidence of APS or hypertensive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, the painful progressive vision loss due to optic disc edema, along with anterior uveitis, and histological proof of non-caseating granulomas on transbronchial lung[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    Patients had lower left ventricular dimensions (z: -1.02 0.1), lower stroke volumes (z: -2.3 0.17), lower left ventricular mass (z: -1.5 0.21), but higher wall thickness ([ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At the eighteenth month of ERT, sudden vision loss developed. She spontaneously recovered her vision in a month.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include progressive dementia, aggressive behavior, hyperactivity, seizures, some deafness and loss of vision, and an inability to sleep for more than a few hours at[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Primary Hyperoxaluria

    […] we propose that circulating oxalate precipitate may be a potential mechanism for stroke in patients with primary oxalosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PURPOSE: To describe the structural and functional characteristics of oxalate retinopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Retinal toxicity leads to early and progressive vision loss. The RPE may respond with hyperpigmentation in the form of 'ringlets' in the posterior pole.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]

  • Acute Hypertensive Retinopathy

    Hypertension in the context of acute stroke/intracranial bleed Stroke/bleed may be the result of hypertension or vice versa.[medicineonlinepk.blogspot.com] Hypertensive Retinopathy[slideshare.net] 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]

  • Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

    The effect of BP targets on the risk for stroke was significant, with a relative risk for stroke of 0.65 (95% CI, 0.48-0.86) associated with intensive vs standard targets.[doi.org] OBJECTIVE: To assess factors associated with diabetic retinopathy (DR) screening uptake following a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus (type 2 diabetes) in Germany.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Loss of vision and blindness in persons with diabetes can be prevented by early detection and treatment of vision-threatening retinopathy: regular eye examinations and timely[who.int]

  • Macular Degeneration

    […] a stroke/TIA at the same time and had never been exposed to anti-VEGF.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Best-corrected visual acuity testing measured with Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study charts and spectral domain optical coherence tomography scans were performed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both cause progressive central vision loss with intact peripheral vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
