Asia Pac J Ophthalmol (Phila) 2019 Jan 23. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Department of Ophthalmology, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, United States.

Diseases of the cerebral venous system frequently lead to neuro-ophthalmic complications. Cortical venous sinus thrombosis and dural arteriovenous fistulas may be complicated by elevation of intracranial pressure, with secondary papilledema or abducens palsies. There is increasing recognition that stenosis at the transverse sinus-sigmoid sinus junction plays a role in the pathophysiology of idiopathic intracranial hypertension and offers a new avenue of treatment in patients who fail medical therapy.

The link between idiopathic intracranial hypertension, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome: exploration of a shared pathophysiology.

J Pain Res 2018 10;11:3129-3140. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, Faculty of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences, Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation Research Unit, University of Leuven, Leuven, Belgium,

Purpose: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IICH) is a condition characterized by raised intracranial pressure (ICP), and its diagnosis is established when the opening pressure measured during a lumbar puncture is elevated >20 cm HO in nonobese patients or >25 cm HO in obese patients. Papilledema is caused by forced filling of the optic nerve sheath with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Other common but underappreciated symptoms of IICH are neck pain, back pain, and radicular pain in the arms and legs resulting from associated increased spinal pressure and forced filling of the spinal nerves with CSF.

Optic Nerve Head Drusen: An Update.

Neuroophthalmology 2018 Dec 25;42(6):367-384. Epub 2018 Apr 25.

Surgery & Anaesthesia, University of Otago Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand.

Optic nerve head drusen are benign acellular calcium concretions that usually form early in life, just anterior to the lamina cribrosa. Improving imaging using optical coherence tomography suggests they are common and may be present in many clinically normal discs. These drusen may change in appearance in early life, but are generally stable in adulthood, and may be associated with visual field defects, anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy, or rarer complications.

Cerebral Venous Thrombosis: An Uncommon Cause of Papilledema on Bedside Ocular Ultrasound.

J Emerg Med 2018 Dec 8. Epub 2018 Dec 8.

Department of Emergency Medicine, University of Florida College of Medicine - Jacksonville, Jacksonville, Florida.

Background: Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a rare, difficult-to-diagnose form of venous thromboembolic disease and is considered a type of stroke. Its presentation is highly variable and may be easily confused for more common and less debilitating or life-threatening diagnoses such as migraine, seizure, or idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

Case Report: A 25-year-old woman presented with a complaint of bifrontal throbbing headache and blurry vision. Read More

Optic nerve appearance as a predictor of visual outcome in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

Br J Ophthalmol 2018 Dec 8. Epub 2018 Dec 8.

Department of Ophthalmology, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Background/aims: It remains unclear whether the presence of optic disc haemorrhages (ODH) or cotton wool spots (CWS) at presentation in patients with papilloedema from idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) has prognostic value. The aim of this study was to determine if optic disc appearance at presentation predicts visual outcome in patients with IIH.

Methods: Retrospective study of 708 eyes of 360 consecutive patients with IIH who had baseline optic disc photographs before or within 30 days of their diagnostic lumbar puncture and initiation of medical treatment. Read More

Visual function in children with primary brain tumors.

Curr Opin Neurol 2019 Feb;32(1):75-81

Departments of Ophthalmology and Pediatrics, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Purpose Of Review: To review the recent advances in understanding how primary brain tumors affect vision in children.

Recent Findings: Children with primary brain tumors may have vision loss due to involvement of their afferent visual pathways or from papilledema. These vision deficits may go unrecognized until later in life, years after treatment of the primary lesion. Read More

Reliable manifestations of increased intracranial pressure in patients with syndromic craniosynostosis.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 12;47(1):158-164. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Purpose: Systematic examination of increased intracranial pressure (ICP) is important during the follow-up period after surgical repair of syndromic craniosynostosis. In these patients, postoperative progress can be unclear due to the involvement of multiple sutures and the high incidence of relapse due to the progressive nature of the disease and to genetic variability. In this study, we investigated the clinical manifestations of increased ICP in syndromic craniosynostosis patients before and after surgery. Read More

Optic nerve disc veins inflammation (papillophlebitis) - case report.

Folia Med Cracov 2018 ;58(2):67-76

Voivodship Ophthalmic Hospital "Na Wzgórzach", os. Na Wzgórzach 17B, 31-723 Kraków, Poland.

Papillophlebitis is an uncommon disease in clinical practice. We would like to present a case of a 29-year-old patient with atypical orbital pain and flashings, presenting relative afferent pupillary defect and already typical of the disease entity: ophthalmoscopic picture of the fundus and big blind spot in perimetry. We present a complex and interdisciplinary diagnostic process that excludes general diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, coagulation disorders and neurological causes. Read More
