Autosomal Dominant Congenital Nystagmus Type 4


Presentation

  • The third section, New Therapies for Congenital Nystagmus, presents basic genetic studies and clinical trials of drug and surgical treatment of those patients with infantile forms of nystagmus.[books.google.com]
  • If a child’s presentation does not precisely fulfill the criteria for congenital motor nystagmus, neuroradiologic testing is necessary. Spasmus nutans. Spasmus nutans is acquired, typically presenting between the ages of 3 and 15 months.[aao.org]
  • Latent Nystagmus Horizontal jerk nystagmus presents when the light stimulus is reduced to either eye (eg by occluding). In latent, no observable movement is present on uncovering and full BSV is restored.[slideshare.net]
  • However, pendular and triangular waveforms may also be present. The nystagmus may rarely be vertical.[malacards.org]
  • After the visit, the resident physician said that he had seen the eye movements but had forgotten to mention them during his presentation to the attending.[pediatriceducation.org]
Developmental Disabilities
  • Common neurological symptoms include diminished muscle tone (hypotonia), seizures, deficits in attaining developmental milestones (developmental disability), varying degrees of cognitive impairment, and underdevelopment of the cerebellum (cerebellar hypoplasia[rarediseases.org]
Severe Pain
  • In decreasing order: necrotizing scleritis without inflammation ie. scleromalacia perforans (over 90%), nodular and necrotizing scleritis (50%), diffuse scleritis (30%) and posterior scleritis (10%) severe pain is common serous retinal detachment is a[mrcophth.com]
Vascular Disease
  • In this instance it may reflect an underlying mechanism of migraine or cerebro-vascular disease (this is the authors opinion). Leigh RJ, Zee DS. (1991) The neurology of eye movement (2nd Edn), FA Davis (Philadelpha). Yee, R. D. (1989).[tchain.com]
Corneal Deposit

Blister
  • A rash with blisters and lesions on the skin and mucus membranes develops, which damages the eyes and causes the top layer of the skin to separate and die.[tsbvi.edu]
Hyperpigmentation
  • Fanconi, in 1927 he described hereditary panmyelopathy with short stature and hyperpigmentation, better known as Fanconi anemia.[wikivisually.com]
Upbeat Nystagmus
  • Neurology, 60,2003, 344 Central nystagmus (downbeat, upbeat nystagmus, horizontal, torsional) Upbeat nystagmus (UBN).[tchain.com]
  • Upbeat Nystagmus Commonly caused by drug intoxication (eg phenytoin - used a san anticonvulsant) May be associated with a brain lesion at the posterior fossa 14.[slideshare.net]
  • nystagmus 0011477 Showing of 7 Last updated: 7/1/2019 If you need medical advice, you can look for doctors or other healthcare professionals who have experience with this disease.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

Workup

  • Recommended lab workup includes TORCH titers, VDRL, serum calcium and phosphorus levels and urine for reducing substance. Additional systemic workup should be done in coordination with the pediatrician.[eyewiki.aao.org]
  • It is accepted as neurologically benign, however, in cases with associated systemic and neurological problems and in cases that is diagnosed after 6 months neuroradiological evaluation and systemic workup are required.[omicsonline.org]
Trichinella Spiralis
  • spiralis causes trichinosis which is an infestation of striated muscle by the larva.[mrcophth.com]
HLA-B27
  • […] drainage can results in: - corneal oedema - cataract formation - uveal effusion - macular oedema - disc oedema - choroidal folds - choroidal detachment 3. a.T b.T c.F d.F e.T Ankylosing spondylitis: inflammatory disorders of spinal joints 90% have the HLA-B27[mrcophth.com]

Treatment

  • The third section, New Therapies for Congenital Nystagmus, presents basic genetic studies and clinical trials of drug and surgical treatment of those patients with infantile forms of nystagmus.[books.google.com]
  • Treatment Treatment Options: No treatment has been reported. References Li L, Xiao X, Yi C, Jiao X, Guo X, Hejtmancik JF, Zhang Q. Confirmation and refinement of an autosomal dominant congenital motor nystagmus locus in chromosome 1q31.3-q32.1.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]
  • This approach will enable the practitioner to make the most accurate diagnosis and choose the most effective treatment option.[books.google.ro]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis The course and prognosis of pediatric cataracts is highly variable. The likelihood and rate of progression is very difficult to predict.[eyewiki.aao.org]
  • Affected individuals should talk to their physician and medical team about their specific case, associated symptoms and overall prognosis.[rarediseases.org]
  • Prognosis Congenital nystagmus is usually a benign condition. It is not curable, but its symptoms can be diminished with spectacles or contact lenses.[healthofchildren.com]
  • Prognosis is excellent since spasmus nutans usually resolves by the age of 3 to 4 years. See-saw nystagmus. This form is clinically unique, with both vertical and torsional components.[aao.org]

Etiology

  • Nystagmus can be physiologic or pathologic according to etiology.[omicsonline.org]
  • Abstract Background: Most patients with pure nonprogressive congenital cerebellar ataxia have a sporadic form of unknown heredity and etiology.[neurology.org]
  • Etiology The causes of infantile cataracts have been the source of much speculation and research. Making a distinction between unilateral and bilateral cataracts may be useful when considering etiology.[eyewiki.aao.org]
  • Discussion The heterogeneity of congenital nystagmus has been well established on the basis of etiology, hereditary pattern, and waveforms.[healio.com]

Epidemiology

  • The Global Epidemiology of Hereditary Ataxiaand Spastic Paraplegia: A systematic review of prevalence studies. Neuroepidemiology 2014; 24:174-183. Ashizawa T, Figueroa KP, Perlman SL, et al.[rarediseases.org]
  • Epidemiology The exact incidence and prevalence of nystagmus is not known but it is thought to occur in about 1 in 1,000 people.[patient.info]
  • Fanconi analyzed its epidemiology and found that the virus was not transmitted by droplet infection, as previously assumed and his understanding of pathophysiologic connections culminated in his prediction that Down syndrome was due to a chromosomal abnormality[wikivisually.com]

Pathophysiology

  • The pathophysiology remains unclear although several mechanisms have been suggested.[healio.com]
  • Pathophysiology [ 1 ] The ocular motor system consists of the vestibular ocular nystagmus saccade system, the pursuit system, the fixation and gaze-holding system and the vergence system.[patient.info]

Prevention

  • An IOL can prevent the formation of a Sommering’s ring, but it is also easier for the lens epithelial cells to migrate to the center of the pupil.[eyewiki.aao.org]
  • Prevention In general nystagmus cannot be prevented.[healthofchildren.com]
  • Prevention Because some cases of Noonan syndrome occur spontaneously, there's no known way to prevent it. However, if you have a family history of this syndrome, talk to your doctor about the benefits of genetic counseling before you have children.[mayoclinic.org]
  • Prevention- There is no known way to prevent nystagmus. 27.[slideshare.net]
