Abstract Details



Purpose:

The occlusion of central retinal vein is relatively rare in young adults.The investigation was carried out in aseries of patients with central retinal vein non ischaimic type. .The outcome of correlated well with the final diagnosis and therapy.

Setting:

The study was carried out in 18 patients age 25-44 with central retinal vein occlusion.

Methods:

In the whole group of patients a complete ocular,systemic,clinical and laboratory investigation was carried out in order to achiev a diagnosis of possible underlying disease.The fluorescence angiography findings were highly evaluated.The visual acuity and the clinical of the fundus were the main parameters for the evaluation of the therapy.

Results:

The results in a group of 18 patients were related to unilateral central retinal vein occlusion of non ischaimic type and mainly presented with gradual regression of the clinical. In 5 cases (28%) an infectious factor was isolated.6 cases(33%)presented with blood or circulatory disturbances.A39% percentage of all cases were healthy adults. We observed improvement of the clinical picture as well as of the visual acuity after the appropriate therapy (visual acuity before therapy o,4 and after therapy 0,8).

Conclusions:

The unilateral non ischaimic type central retinal vein occlusion in young adults is a clinical entity with a usually benign course. Systemic infectious, idiopathic inflammatory as well as blood and/or circulatory disturbances are involved. The diagnostic investigation is necessary for the differential diagnosis and the application of the appropriate therapy. The final outcome is highly satisfactory. FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
