Cerulean Cataract

Blue-Dot Cataract


Presentation

  • This mutation was present in all patients with cerulean cataract but was not present in any of the 13 unaffected family members nor in 96 control individuals.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It not only presents diverse pictures and images from clinical practice, it also includes the latest findings in the field.[books.google.de]
  • Presents a more streamlined format to the printed text to help you focus on the clinically actionable information you need everyday.[books.google.ro]
  • They may be present at birth or develop in very early childhood, but may not be diagnosed until adulthood. They are usually bilateral and progressive.[malacards.org]
Asymptomatic
  • Infants can be asymptomatic, but may also be visually impaired from birth and develop nystagmus and amblyopia. In adulthood, the cataracts may progress, making lens removal necessary.[malacards.org]
  • Endorsed by iPod Podcasting Cataracta Cerulea (Blue Dot Cataract) Diagnosis: Cataracta Cerulea (Blue Dot Cataract) Comment to photo: Blue dot cataract is a common type of congenital cataract; often found during routine clinical examination, usually asymptomatic[atlasophthalmology.net]
  • Often leaves patient with asymptomatic vision, but not always (if vision is affected, lens removal and IOL implantation is indicated). May have many different presentations, such as cerulean cataracts, anterior polar cataracts, or many others.[optometrystudents.com]

Treatment

  • Treatment Treatment Options: Visually significant cataracts may need to be removed.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]
  • More Types of Cerulean cataract » Treatments: Cerulean cataract Treatment : No treatment is known to prevent cerulean cataracts, and there is currently no cure for the condition.[familydiagnosis.com]
  • Throughout the book, the pathology, examination, anesthesia, surgical treatment and nursing care of pediatric lens disorders are discussed in detail.[books.google.de]
  • No treatment is known to prevent cerulean cataracts, but frequent evaluations and cataract surgery are typically required to prevent amblyopia as the opacities progress.[diseaseinfosearch.org]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis - Cerulean cataract The \'prognosis\' of Cerulean cataract usually refers to the likely outcome of Cerulean cataract.[checkorphan.org]
  • The prognosis for successful surgery is less favorable for unilateral cataracts than for bilateral cataracts.[alpfmedical.info]

Etiology

  • They are organised into groups, and further divided into clinical, etiological or histopathological sub-types.[orpha.net]
  • So this repeated question on etiologyEtiology and causes of pediatric cataracts in general — that is a question. See, most of the pediatric cataracts which we see are idiopathic.[cybersight.org]

  • Etiology: Extracapsular cataract extraction removes only the anterior central portion of the capsule and leaves epithelial cells of the lens intact along with remnants of the capsule.[alpfmedical.info]

Epidemiology

  • Commonly, a patient with small congenital cataracts that do not affect vision will eventually be affected later in life; generally this will take decades to occur. [3] Epidemiology [ edit ] Congenital cataract are responsible for nearly 10% of all vision[en.wikipedia.org]

  • At 0.1 - 0.2%, the incidence of retinal detachment after extracapsular cataract extraction is about ten times less than after intracapsular cataract extraction, which has an incidence of 2 - 3 %. 7.4.8.3 Secondary Cataract Epidemiology: Approximately[alpfmedical.info]

Pathophysiology

  • Pande et al. [ 25 ] has demonstrated that both the R36S and R58S CRYGD mutant proteins are much less soluble and more prone to crystallization than the wild type human gamma-B-crystallin protein, but the pathophysiological cause of the phenotypic variability[molvis.org]

Prevention

  • No treatment is known to prevent cerulean cataracts, but frequent evaluations and cataract surgery are typically required to prevent amblyopia as the opacities progress.[malacards.org]
  • Frequent eye evaluations and eventual cataract surgery are typically required to prevent amblyopia ( vision loss ) as the opacities progress. [2] The symptoms ... 4 ...[familydiagnosis.com]
  • Treatment Treatment Options: No treatment is known to prevent the opacities but serial evaluations and cataract surgery are required to prevent amblyopia as the opacities progress. References[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]
