47 Possible Causes for Scleral Thickening

  • Retinal Degeneration-Nanophthalmos-Glaucoma Syndrome

    . • A smaller than normal optic vesicle growing from the forebrain may be the cause of the reduced size of the eye, and scleral thickening could be explained by the development[entokey.com] Abnormal thickening of the scleral connective tissue is often observed (summary by Awadalla et al., 2014 ).For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of nanophthalmos, see[mendelian.co] No prophylactic sclerostomy was done; however during surgery it was noticed that the scleral coat was thickened.[ijo.in]

  • Optic Disc Drusen

    Scleral and choroidal thickening are usually present.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Thickened sclera with prominent scleral vessels was described in affected family members.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] There is diffuse scleral thickening, macular schisis of the outer retinal layers, and drusen may be present in the optic nerve.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]

  • Congenital Exophthalmos

  • Scleral Staphyloma

    The scleral shortening might cause the SRD to decrease because its procedure changed the foveal scleral thickening.[karger.com] […] thinning and melting • Cause is ischemia Posterior scleritis • Inflammation with thickening of posterior sclera • Primary or secondary extension of anterior scleritis • Not[medicalpptonline.blogspot.com] Maruko et al. [ 6 ] reported that relative scleral thickening at the fovea might cause the SRD in tilted disc syndrome.[karger.com]

  • Necrobiotic Xanthogranuloma

    Repeat ultrasonography showed complete resolution of the scleral thickening. Her skin lesions regressed and the paraproteinaemia also resolved.[nature.com]

  • Uveal Disease

    thickening.[eyewiki.aao.org] Increased scleral thickness may hamper the escape of aqueous by the uveo-scleral route.[eyewiki.aao.org] Certain scleral characteristics that may influence protein and fluid egress from the eye include scleral thickness, scleral composition, and the number of scleral emissary[eyewiki.aao.org]

  • Panuveitis

    Ultrasonography revealed diffuse scleral thickening.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Scleritis and Episcleritis

    Cross bar by gap containing fluid in sub-Tenon space – CT SCAN: Post scleral thickening 35. POSTERIOR SCLERITIS USG / CT FINDINGS Thickening of posterior sclera 36.[slideshare.net] Scleral, episcleral, and conj vessels are engorged. Scleral edema/thickening may be present. What are the signs of posterior scleritis?[studyblue.com] The elongated hyporeflective area (blue arrow) could indicate edema in the presence of a thickened sclera. In this case, it was due to a scleral plaque.[reviewofoptometry.com]

  • Phthisis Bulbi

    thickening, cyclitic membrane extends from one ciliary body behind the lens to the other ciliary body, complete detachment of retina; also ossification or bone formation[pathologyoutlines.com] Typically disorganization of intraocular contents, opaque media, corneal scars, exudate in anterior and posterior chambers, advanced cataracts, destruction of vitreous, scleral[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa 9

    There is diffuse scleral thickening, macular schisis of the outer retinal layers, and drusen may be present in the optic nerve.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]
