are usually vitamin A deficient which can lead to blindness and even death. Vitamin A deficiency in the eye has a classic set of presentations with night blindness, conjunctival and corneal xerosis, bitot’s spots, corneal ulcers, and finally corneal scarring and blindness. The typical “at risk” child is 1-3 years old, not breastfed, and has poor diet or is malnourished and will often have an infection (especially measles) or diarrhoea. These children need vitamin A supplementation as well as all those (...) A deficiency and its eye signs. However complications of measles in the eye can include keratitis, corneal ulcers, retinopathy, and optic neuritis. Measles is a leading cause of childhood blindness in developing countries where immunization programmes are less established. During my time I went to see the neonatal and paediatric wards. As is common among non ophthalmic medical staff there is a reluctance to even think about eyes, never mind look into them. However there are a series of 10 basic key
Trigeminal brainstem modulation of persistent orbicularis oculi muscle activity in a rat model of dry eye Altered cornealreflex activity is a common feature of dry eye disease (DE). Trigeminal sensory nerves supply the ocular surface and terminate at the trigeminal interpolaris/caudalis (ViVc) transition and spinomedullary (VcC1) regions. Although both regions contribute to cornealreflexes, their role under dry eye conditions is not well defined. This study assessed the influence of local (...) in DE rats. Loss of GABAergic inhibition at the ViVc transition coupled with enhanced NMDA excitatory amino acid neurotransmission at the ViVc transition and the VcC1 region likely contribute to altered cornealreflexes under dry eye conditions.Published by Elsevier Ltd.
patient's current problems. One month after diagnosis of the right-sided dorsolateral medullary syndrome, there were complaints of ocular irritation and a diminished visual acuity in the right eye. Biomicroscopy showed a sicca keratopathy with nearly complete absence of tear secretion on the Shirmer I test, but with normal eye closure and preserved cornealreflexes and sensitivity. Conclusion: A dorsolateral medullary syndrome can have a variable expression in symptomatology. Our case is special because
The Preferential Impairment of Pupil Constriction Stimulated by Blue Light in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes without Autonomic Neuropathy The main aim of the present paper is to examine whether the pupillary light reflex (PLR) mediated by intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) is impaired in type 2 diabetic patients. One hundred and three diabetic patients without diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN) and 42 age-matched controls underwent a series of detailed neurological (...) examinations. The patients were stratified into three groups: stage I, no neuropathy; stage II, asymptomatic neuropathy; stage III, symptomatic but without DAN. The PLR to 470 and 635 nm light at 20 cd/m2 was recorded. Small fiber neuropathy was assessed by corneal confocal microscopy and quantifying corneal nerve fiber (CNF) morphology. The 470 nm light induced a stronger and faster PLR than did 635 nm light in all subjects. The PLR to both lights was impaired equally across all of the diabetic subgroups
predictive of a poor outcome (CPC 3-5). On the basis of these factors, a risk score for poor outcome was constructed.We identified ten independent predictors of a poor outcome: older age, cardiac arrest occurring at home, initial rhythm other than ventricular fibrillation/tachycardia, longer duration of no flow, longer duration of low flow, administration of adrenaline, bilateral absence of corneal and pupillary reflexes, Glasgow Coma Scale motor response 1, lower pH and a partial pressure of carbon
manifestations and dental management of an 8-month-old white boy with hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy-VIII over a period of 16 years. Our patient was homozygous for a mutation of PR domain-containing protein 12 gene and was characterized by insensitivity to pain and thermal stimuli, self-mutilation behavior, reduced sweat and tear production, absence of cornealreflexes, and multiple skin and bone infections. Oral manifestations included premature loss of teeth, associated with dental traumata
Ophthalmic manifestations in Rothmundâ€“Thomson syndrome: Case report and review of literature A 24-year-old male patient presented to us with diminution of vision in both eyes with watering and photophobia for the past 8 years. General physical examination showed short stature and poikiloderma. Ocular findings include photophobia with reflex tearing, dry eye, cicatricial ectropion, symblepharon approaching pupillary area of cornea, and multiple superficial punctuate erosions on the cornea (...) . Both eyelids showed scanty meibomian glands on infrared meibography. The rest of the anterior and posterior segment was normal. The patient was treated with topical lubricants which reduced photophobia and corneal erosions. He then underwent symblepharon release with buccal mucosal grafting, which improved ectropion. Patient improved symptomatically with reduction of photophobia and improvement in vision as well.
to many physical and biochemical barriers including the pre-corneal tear film, the structure and biophysiological properties of the cornea, the limited volume that can be accommodated by the cul-de-sac, the lacrimal drainage system and reflex tearing. The tissue layers of the cornea and conjunctiva are further key factors that act to restrict drug delivery. Using carriers that enhance viscosity or bind to the ocular surface increases bioavailability. Matching the pH and polarity of drug molecules
of strabismus, absence of fungiform papillae, feeding difficulty, gastroesophageal reflux and episodes of self-mutilation. Deep tendon reflexes were depressed, the blinking rate and cornealreflex were diminished as well and corneas were opaque due to corneal erosions. Reduced lacrimal production was confirmed by the Schirmer test. Eye drops were recommended every 2-3 hours for corneal erosion and the patient was referred to the genetics department for further diagnostic confirmation.
man was being evaluated in our neuro-oncology clinic due to diplopia since 4 months ago. On physical examination he had left sided abducens paresis, hyposthesia over left half of his face and a decreased cornealreflex on left side. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study revealed a lesion at left CP angle measuring 30×25×25mm in size which was isointense in T1, hypointense on T2 with homogenous enhancement in post-contrast study. A standard retrosigmoid approach was carried out for resection
discussion 2.1. Introduction Problem statement Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain characterized by the recurrence of spontaneous, unprovoked seizures, i.e. seizures not provoked by transient systemic, metabolic or toxic disorders. In 2014, the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) furthermore proposed to define epilepsy by any of the following conditions: (i) At least two unprovoked (or reflex) seizures occurring >24 h apart, (ii) one unprovoked (or reflex) seizure and a probability of further
and mechanical ventilation during which the preconditions for clinical determination of brain death are fulfilled and the patient is unresponsive (Glasgow Coma Score 3), has no pupil reaction to light, no cough reflex and no spontaneous breathing efforts, before clinical testing to determine brain death. Previously, a minimum of four hours was recommended, with a minimum of two hours before clinical testing was repeated. However, there has been no reported instance of clinical testing determining brain death (...) system activity in order to define criteria for abandoning ongoing intensive therapy. They referred to an isoelectric electro-encephalogram and absent evoked cerebral responses, reporting that the heart rate did not change after giving atropine while it increased after dextroamphetamine.

During the evolution of the disease, postural and action tremor, limb dystonia, focal reflex myoclonus, postural instability and falls, alien hand‐like phenomenon, corticospinal signs, oculomotor and eyelid motor deficits and dysarthria develop in more than half of cases. CBD, the commonest cause of CBS, is a 4‐repeat tauopathy defined by unique neuropathological features including cortical atrophy, nigral degeneration, achromasia (swollen neurons (...) hallucinations . Genetic prion diseases Genetic prion diseases occurring in 10–15% of cases are caused by prion protein gene ( PRNP ) mutations, showing the patterns of autosomal‐dominant inheritance with incomplete penetrance. The disorders manifest as familial Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (fCJD), Gerstmann–Sträussler–Scheinker disease (GSS) or fatal familial insomnia (FFI). Accidentally transmitted (iatrogenic) CJD has been related to corneal graft transplantation, contaminated human pituitary‐derived growth
, whereas grade 4 refers to severe and constant DED with potentially disabling symptoms. Severe symptoms can impair vision, limiting vision-related daily activities such as reading and driving. The complications of DED include conjunctivitis, keratitis (infection of the cornea) and corneal scarring. The condition is estimated to affect 15–33% of people aged over 65 years, and is about 50% more common in women than men (NICE clinical knowledge summary on dry eye syndrome; Lemp et al. 2012). DED is also (...) -and- conditions#notice-of-rights). Page 5 of 32Setting and intended use Setting and intended use The T earLab osmolarity system is intended to measure the osmolarity of tears to help diagnose DED, in conjunction with other tests and with clinical evaluation. T earLab Corporation recommends that the osmolarity test is done before any other tests, such as the fluorescein dye test, because they could stimulate the production of reflex tears (which differ from basal tears) and affect the value of the reading
