366 Possible Causes for Unilateral Ptosis

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    INTRODUCTION: The propositus - a two-week-old boy - was transferred to our university hospital for investigation of increased head circumference and full fontanel. On ultrasound, thrombosis of the right internal cerebral vein and intraventricular haemorrhage was diagnosed, confirmed by MRI. Family history revealed[…][]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Spinal neurodegeneration is an important determinant of disability progression in patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis. Advanced imaging techniques, such as single-voxel (1)H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy and q-space imaging, have increased pathological specificity for neurodegeneration, but are[…][]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    To identify risk factors for intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), we examined data from the Hemorrhagic Stroke Project (HSP), a case-control study of hemorrhagic stroke among men and women aged 18 to 49 years. Case subjects for the HSP were recruited from 44 hospitals in the United States. Eligibility criteria[…][]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Pulmonary granular cell tumors (GCTs) are uncommon and predominantly benign. The coexistence of GCTs with bronchogenic carcinoma is rare. We report three cases of GCT occurring simultaneously with a primary bronchogenic carcinoma. In one case mucoepidermoid carcinoma was seen colliding with a bronchial submucosal[…][]

  • Graves Disease

    Previous studies indicate pre-existing subclinical Graves' disease in many patients with the scintigraphic diagnosis of toxic multinodular goitre type A, equivalent to the in Germany so-called disseminated thyroid autonomy. Furthermore, after radioiodine treatment an increase or the induction of TSH-receptor antibodies[…][]

  • Subdural Hematoma

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    BACKGROUND: Persistent carotid-basilar connections have a prevalence of 0.14%. Recognizing such persistent fetal anastomoses between the carotid and the vertebrobasilar circulation is of great importance because they are reportedly associated with an increased prevalence of intracranial aneurysms. METHODS: We[…][]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    The examination found no signs of pupillary defects, eyelid ptosis, or nystagmus. Bilateral hyporeflexia was detected throughout the patient's body.[] Examination findings by neurology clinic staff included slight exophoria of the right eye upon leftward gaze during cover-uncover (ie, unilateral) testing, as well as subtle[]

  • Congenital Ptosis

    […] were found in patients with mild or moderate unilateral ptosis.[] (1) compared with the normal population, an overall higher frequency of myopia in human congenital ptosis; (2) in unilateral ptosis, a higher frequency of myopia in the ptotic[] In 3.9% of the cases (5/128; 2 eyes with unilateral and 3 eyes with bilateral ptosis) we assumed SDA.[]

  • Ethmoid Sinusitis

    Abstract In a prospective study, patients with the diagnosis of chronic ethmoid sinusitis were evaluated microbiologically by using biopsy specimens of the ethmoid sinus mucosa. Microbiology cultures were performed on 94 specimens from 59 patients. Staphylococcus aureus and members of the family Enterobacteriaceae[…][]
