A study published in the American Journal of Physiology found that astronauts with higher weight, waist and chest circumference measurements were more likely to develop disc oedema or choroidal folds
Posterior segment examination of the right eye revealed optic disc edema and widespread choroidal folds
Amongst the problems discovered are a flattening of the globe, swelling of the optic nerve and choroidal folds
. "Swelling of the optic nerve is a serious problem; if it's chronic, that could cause some permanent damage to the eyes," states Dr Robert Gibson, who conducted the survey.
Clinicopathologic corre-lation of choroidal folds
: secondary to massive cranioorbital hemangiopericytoma.
While the patient was under the care of the hospital in 2011, choroidal folds
were noted (see Figure 5, page 84).
The dilated fundus examination revealed choroidal folds
at the posterior pole in the right eye and an exudative retinal detachment in the peripheral area in both eyes (Figure 1).
2 -A) disclosed yellow, elevated lesion in the peripapillary region suggestive of choroidal metastasis, inferior exudative retinal detachment, disc edema with choroidal folds
. F.F.A (Fig.
Fundus findings may show venous engorgement, tortuosity, choroidal folds
and occasionally central retinal vein occlusion.
