Chapter 21 – Diplopia. Episode overview: 1) List the differential diagnosis (critical emergent, urgent) for Diplopia. ▫ Including at least 7 causes of binocular. Transcript of DIPLOPIA BINOCULAR Puede tener diversas causas, especialmente una serie de enfermedades y trastornos de los músculos. Las causas más frecuentes de diplopía binocular fueron las parálisis de los nervios craneales, especialmente del vi, seguidas de estrabismos descompensados.

Examination of the eyelids may demonstrate ptosis or orbicularis weakness, although cases without eyelid involvement occur.
Evaluation and Management
Divergence Insufficiency and Paralysis Divergence insufficiency is an ocular motor anomaly characterized by horizontal diplopia in the distance. In this sense double vision is neither dangerous nor harmful, and may even be enjoyable. The ability to suppress is to be found particularly in childhood when the brain is still developing.

Diplopia – Wikipedia
Efforts must first be made to identify and treat the underlying cause of the problem. Doctors may use blood tests, physical exams, computed tomography CT or magnetic resonance imaging MRI to find the underlying cause.
There is upbeat nystagmus in upgaze. From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper. Base-in reading glasses are not helpful in children and adolescents but may be effective in older patients. Recent modifications to the Baerveldt end plate have reduced postoperative diplopia.
Neuroanatomy through Clinical Cases. Maculopathies such as epiretinal membranes can anatomically pull one fovea out of correspondence with the fellow fovea.
The right eye demonstrates abducting nystagmus. Myasthenia gravis can produce a motility disorder identical to an INO or a one-and- a-half syndrome. This is usually vertical diplopia due to small fusional amplitudes and may be correctable with a slab- off prism from the more-minus or less-plus lens. Other technical problems include scarring, under- or overcorrected refractive error, or an ablation siplopia smaller than the scotopic pupil.
Internuclear Ophthalmoplegia The medial longitudinal fasciculus MLF connects the sixth nerve nucleus on one side of the pons to the contralateral medial rectus subnucleus in the midbrain.
One should consider a posterior communicating artery aneurysm in an adult with a new-onset third nerve palsy and pupillary involvement including relative pupil involvement. The pupil is described separately as spared or involved.
Long-standing, stable misalignment may warrant surgery in patients intolerant of prisms. If the patient can see singly dipkopia centrallythen this is a positive test indicating dragged-fovea diplopia syndrome.
A skew deviation or upbeat nystagmus in upgaze may be present, as the MLF also carries vertical eye movement information and input from the cerebellum to the midbrain. Demyelination often causes INO in younger adults and microvascular infarction typically causes INO in elderly patients.

In other cases, aniseikonia from anisometropia leads to disparate-sized images from each eye and the perception of diplopia. A complete third nerve palsy indicates total dysfunction of the EOMs and levator. Cigarette smoking may worsen TED, and this should be discussed with the patient. Some adults are also able to suppress their diplopia, but their suppression is rarely as causaas or as effective and takes much longer to establish, and thus they are not at risk of permanently compromising their vision.
Second, patients with a history of amblyopia or congenital strabismus may have a suppression scotoma in their nondominant, misaligned eye.
Characteristics of cauzas lesions in the 8 cases. In an attempt to avoid double vision, the brain can sometimes ignore the image from one eye; a process known as suppression. Also, while looking at one bioncular behind another object, the foremost object’s image is doubled for example, placing one’s finger in front of one’s face while reading text on a computer monitor.
The hypertropia is generally present in primary gaze and may be comitant or incomitant. Si continua navegando, consideramos que acepta su uso.
