Causes and outcomes of spontaneous vitreous hemorrhage in children
Causes and outcomes of spontaneous vitreous hemorrhage in children (August 9, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From India - A new report published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology examines the clinical profile, causes and outcomes of spontaneous vitreous hemorrhage in children. Researchers studied 124 eyes in 76 children who had presented with nontraumatic, nonsurgical vitreous haemorrhage. Results showed that 96% of the children presented with diminished vision and behavioural changes. The two most common causes of the condition were vasculitis and hematologic disorders. Participants were treated with either medical therapy, laser photocoagulation or survey. The mean visual acuity following treatment was much better than at baseline.
