817 Possible Causes for Tooth Loss, Visual Impairment

  • Familial Paget's Disease of Bone

    Mutations in Sequestosome 1 (SQSTM1) have been shown to segregate with familial Paget's disease of bone (PDB). We examined the coding sequence of SQSTM1 in five PDB pedigrees and found three novel mutations clustered around the C-terminal ubiquitin associated domain. Disruptions of the C-terminal domain of SQSTM1[…][]

  • Primary Hyperoxaluria

    Primary hyperoxaluria is a rare condition (autosomal recessive), resulting in increased excretion of oxalate (up to 600mg a day from normal 50mg a day), with oxalate stones being common. The buildup of oxalate in the body causes increased renal excretion of oxalate (hyperoxaluria), which in turn results in renal[…][]

  • Gingivitis

    Tooth decay (dental caries) also may result. If not treated, gingivitis can advance to periodontitis and eventual tooth loss.[] In total, 42 visually impaired students were recruited in the study at baseline during the first stage.[] When this happens, teeth are no longer anchored in place, they become looser, and tooth loss occurs. Gum disease, in fact, is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.[]

  • Periodontitis

    AIM: This retrospective longitudinal study assessed the risk of and prognostic factors for tooth loss in patients with generalized aggressive periodontitis (GAgP) after periodontal[] impairment, audiological dysfunction, weight gain toward adulthood, and thyroid disorders. 10 The immunologic problem is believed to be the major constituent in the high[] Six hundred patients in a private periodontal practice were reexamined an average of 22 years after their active treatment and the patterns of tooth loss were observed. 2.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    Affected children may also have an abnormally large head (macrocephaly), a short neck and broad chest, delayed tooth eruption, progressive hearing loss, and enlargement of[] These complications may result in visual impairment and even blindness.[] Patients may suffer from glaucoma, severe visual impairment with retinal degeneration, optic nerve compression and atrophy, and the loss of peripheral vision.[]

  • Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis

    […] isolated neurosensory hearing loss type DFNA Autosomal dominant isolated sensorineural deafness type DFNA Autosomal dominant isolated sensorineural hearing loss type DFNA[] Rapidly progressing visual loss resulting in severe visual impairment within one to two years is often the first clinical sign.[] […] dominant intermediate Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type D Autosomal dominant intermediate Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type E Autosomal dominant intermediate Charcot-Marie-Tooth[]

  • Mandibulofacial Dysostosis

    Conductive hearing loss is common with hypoplastic ossicular chains while the pinnae are low-set, crumpled and abnormally cupped.[] An instrument (ophthalmoscope) is used to visualize the interior of the eye to detect any possibility of visual impairment.[] Tooth eruption is often delayed and there may be agenesis of many permanent teeth. The maxillary sinuses may be absent. Cleft palate is often present.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 4A

    Affected children may also have an abnormally large head (macrocephaly), a short neck and broad chest, delayed tooth eruption, progressive hearing loss, and enlargement of[] In general, MPS-IVA patients show normal intelligence, but visual impairment and hearing loss are regularly reported.[] Involvement of other organ systems can lead to respiratory complications, valvular heart disease, hearing impairment, visual impairment from corneal clouding, dental abnormalities[]

  • Mucormycosis

    The condition was diagnosed as advanced periodontal disease with severe bone loss and periodontal abscess involving the left maxillary canine.[] impairment/loss, eyelid edema, chemosis, proptosis, opthalmoplegia, multiple cranial nerve palsies, and focal neurological deficits.[] The patient had undergone localized oral prophylaxis followed by extraction of the involved tooth under local anesthesia and oral prophylaxis was later completed.[]

  • Septo-Optic Dysplasia

    A homeodomain point mutation of the Drosophila proboscipedia protein provokes eye loss independently of homeotic function. Mech.[] The degree of visual impairment is variable, and ranges from normal vision to complete blindness.[] Children may benefit from developmental programs for the visually impaired, as well as from physical, and occupational therapies.[]
