The viscosity of the whole blood, plasma and serum, haematocrit and plasma fibrinogen were studied in diabetic patients with (DR) and without (D) retinopathy and in non-diabetic control subjects (C). Blood viscosity was significantly higher in diabetics than in controls. No significant differences in viscosity of the whole blood were found when various(More)
A 26-year-old female showed a bilateral ophthalmoscopic picture of pigmented paravenous retino-choroidal distrophy 19 years after neuro-retinitis following measles. Pigmentary disturbances in the fundus were not reported in 1963 clinical record; however functional tests are at present practically unchanged. Some debated aspects of this condition are(More)
Hemorheological factors were studied in 34 patients affected by retinal vein occlusion (RVO) and in 25 control subjects. Whole blood viscosity, plasma viscosity, fibrinogen and hematocrit were increased in RVO patients compared with controls. Whole-blood filterability was reduced in RVO patients compared with controls. However, when evaluating the type of(More)
Papilledema due to raised intracranial pressure in absence of intracranial mass arose roughly at the same time in 2 male heterozygous twins. The diagnosis of benign intracranial hypertension (BIH) was confirmed by the finding of normal cerebrospinal fluid and high opening pressure. Neurologic examination was normal. In both cases choroidal folds were(More)
The whole blood and plasma viscosity, hematocrit and plasma fibrinogen were studied in 26 diabetic patients (11 with and 15 without retinopathy) and in 25 non-diabetic control subjects. Blood viscosity, plasma viscosity and plasma fibrinogen were significantly higher in diabetics than in controls, but no significant differences were found when diabetics(More)
