Tuberous Sclerosis : Case Report

DiscussionTuberous sclerosis is an autosomal dominant neurocutaneous syndrome characterized by various abnormalities, including multisystemic hamartomas. Also known as Bourneville disease, named after D ésiré-Magloire Bourneville, the French physician who discovered the potato like appearance of cortical lesions in the brains of patients with this condition.Tuberous sclerosis is the second most common phakomatosis behind neurofibromatosis type 1. It has a prevalence estimated to be 1 in 6000. App roximately one third of cases of tuberous sclerosis are familial the other two thirds of cases are sporadic and due to spontaneous mutations.Classic triad first described by Heinrich Vogt in 1908 consists of facial angiofibromas, seizures, and mental retardation is present in only 30 –40% of patients. Facial angiofibromas are present 75% of the time, seizures as much as 90% of the time, and mental retardation in approximately 50% of all patients. Tuberous sclerosis is usually diagnosed in infancy or early childhood because child presents with seizures, developmental delay or h ypomelanotic macules. The diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis can be made earlier or later on the basis of other features that manifest themselves at other ages. Cortical tubers and cardiac rhabdomyomas can be detected prenatally and in infancy, whereas renal, pulmonary, and osseous lesions are identified more commonly in adulthood.Genetic diagnostic criteria- The identification of either a...

Conclusion: Rutheni um-106 plaque therapy in combination with intravitreal chemotherapy is an effective local therapy with good tumour control rates even in advanced eyes. Overall, the analysed therapeutic approach shows an acceptable side effect profile, especially when considering that EBRT and systemic polychemother apy, or at least the number of cycles needed, with their increased incidence of adverse events can thus be avoided.

BRUSSELS (AP) — New findings about the coronavirus’s omicron variant made it clear Tuesday that the emerging threat slipped into countries well before their defenses were up, as two distant nations announced their first cases and a third reported its presence before South African officials sounded the alarm. The Netherlands’ RIVM health institute found omicron in samples dating from Nov. 19 and 23. The World Health Organization said South Africa first reported the variant to the U.N. health agency on Nov. 24. Meanwhile, Japan and France reported their first cases of the new variant that has forced the wor...

CONCLUSION: PERG abnormalities can predict rim area loss in preperimetric glaucoma after controlling for disc area. We recommend controlling for disc area to increase diagnostic accuracy in early glaucoma.PMID:34845426 | PMC:PMC8627351 | DOI:10.1155/2021/8025337

This study included 51 eyes with a mean follow-up period of 18.94 months: 33 eyes with tractional LMH and 18 eyes with degenerative LMH. MID was not significantly different between both subtypes but MOD was significantly greater in tractional LMH than degenerative types (tractional, 1131.6 μm; degenerative, 708.9 μm; p
