Can Save Your Eyes
Leukocoria or whitish pupil shine is one of the most serious symptoms of intraocular pathology. Leukocoria means only symptom, not diagnosis.
THE MOST COMMON CAUSES OF THE LEUKOCORIA
It is clouding the lens that can be one-sided or double-sided. The most common cause of leukocoria is either hereditary without other anomalies, or is part of syndromes (most commonly Down's syndrome) and metabolic defects (most commonly galactosemia), or as a result of intrauterine infection. Treatment should be started as soon as possible for the proper development of visual functions. In this case, the treatment is surgery. In fact, there is a loss of visual perception in the eye that is affected and, consequently, amblyopia and a disturbance of the binocular functions can occur.
It is a malignant tumor of the retina, one of the most frequently occurring tumors of the eye in childhood. Leukocoria is its most common primary symptom. It may also be manifested by squinting, intraocular inflammation with glaucoma, may lead to loss of vision. The treatment is complex in cooperation with oncologists and its possibilities are chemotherapy, local therapy, radiotherapy or enucleation. Due to early diagnosis, retinoblastoma is now the most successfully treatable malignant tumor in childhood. If the tumor is captured safely in the intraocular stage, its vital prognosis is excellent.
It is caused by the parasites Toxocara cati (Feline Roundworm) and Toxocara canis (Dog Roundworm) in our conditions, its lifetime cycle in the digestive tract of dogs and cats. From a clinical standpoint, the visceral, ocular or mixed form of toxocarosis is distinguished. Infecting a child can be contaminated with food or eggs from animal excrement in soil or sand. The treatment is surgical and is supplemented by systemic treatment, which consists of a combination of corticosteroids with anthelmintic, which reduces larvae mobility.
It is the most common form of posterior uveitis. It is an infectious disease caused by the parasitic protozoan Toxoplasma gondii. Transmission to humans is possible if hygiene principles are not observed. The risk is the primary infection of the mother in pregnancy, when she can transfer the infection to the fetus and thus may cause premature birth or abortion. It depends on the period of pregnancy in which the mother became ill (the sooner she became ill, the greater the damage to the fetus). The patient's subjective complaints include a marked decrease in visual sharpness (macular bearing) and fogging of the image.
