Título: The clinical features of haemoglobin SC disease in Jamaica
Fonte: Br J Haematol;24(4):491-501, Apr. 1973.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: The clinical and haematological features of 90 Jamaican patients with haemoglobin SC disease are reviewed. Mean haemoglobin levels indicated mild anaemia although individual haemoglobin levels were often within the normal range. The clinical features were qualitatively similar to those of homozygous sickle cell disease(SS disease) although they were generlly less frequent and of lesser severity. Ocular pathology was an exception, occuring more frequently in SS disease even in age-sex-matched groups. There is some evidence that the higher haemoglobin level in SC disease may be aetiologically related to retinal vascular disease. (AU)

Título: Some common eye diseases in British Guiana
Fonte: West Indian med. j;8(4):225-8, Dec. 1959.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: In this paper we attempt to give a "bird's eye view" of some common eye diseases in British Guiana, and some of their peculiarities. The greatest peculiarities are seen in senile and pre-senile cataracts which begin centrally. There is a racial predilection of glaucoma and optic atrophy due to avitaminosis of the B group and this predilection is confined to diseases in the negro or mixed negro races. (AU)

Título: Ocular findings in elderly cases of homozygous sickle-cell disease in Jamaica
Fonte: Br J Ophthalmol;60(5):361-4, May 1976.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: The ocular findings in 60 patients with homozygous sickle-cell disease over the age of 40 years have been described. Peripheral retinal vessel disease was common and appeared to increase with age. Retinitis proliferans was common among older patients in the group. Angioid streaks occurred in 13 (22 percent) patients. (Summary)

Título: Ocular findings in hemoglobin SC disease in Jamaica
Fonte: Am J Ophthalmol;74(5):921-31, Nov. 1972.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: In order to structure a series without bias, the retinal and chorioretinal lesions were recorded in a series of 70 Jamaicans with hemoglobin SC disease who were consecutive patients at a sickle cell clinic during a one-month period. By avoiding selective inclusion of cases with ocular pathology, a direct comparison with 76 SS cases studied earlier was possible. An analysis of both series, together indicated that peripheral retinal whitening was associated with mild grades of peripheral retinal vessel disease in 84.3 percent and with severe grades in 47.4 percent, giving rise to the postulation that peripheral whitening reflects an anoxic change, possibly edema, whereas a reddish brown appearance characterizes retinal atrophy associated with more severe vessel disease. Proliferative sickle retinopathy occurred in 63 percent SC paients compared with 26 percent SS patients. The incidence of retinitis proliferans in SC patients was related to hemoglobin level and occurred in 73 percent of patients with hemoglobin levels above 12.5 percent compared to 15 percent of those with hemoglobin below this level. This suggests that an increased blood viscosity may contribute to the development of retinitis proliferans. (Summary)

Título: A neurological, ophthalmological and audiological survey of a suburban Jamaican community
Fonte: West Indian med. j;16(4):233-45, Dec. 1967.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: A neurological, opthalmological and audiological survey was conducted in a suburban Jamaican community aged 35-74 years. One aim was to determine the prevalence of signs found in the Jamaican neuropathy syndrome and their association with sensorineural hearing loss and retrobulbar neuropathy. Mean hearing levels of Jamaicans were better than those reported from a comparable Scottish population. Conductive hearing losses, including otosclerosis, were uncommon. Sensorineural loss was found in 5.0 percent of men and 11.4 percent of women; presbyacusis was a possible cause in older subjects but in many the aetiology was unknown. Noise-induced hearing loss was not an important cause of impaired hearing. Refractive errors in vision were common and many needed proper correction. Pterygia were common (15.9 percent) but less prevalent among those of predominantly African origin, suggesting a racial difference in susceptibility. The prevalence of progressive cataract rose from 3.2 percent at 35-44 years to 71.7 percent at 65-74 years and was greater in diabetics than non-diabetics. Eight cases of chronic simple glaucoma were detected, a prevalence greater than that reported in a Welsh population. Tropical amblyopia (poor visual acuity, temporal pallor and field defects) was found in eight cases. Unexplained neurological signs, possibly representing manifestations of the Jamaican neuropathy syndrome, were found in 25 subjects (4.8 percent of females and 4.0 percent of males). Sensorineural hearing losses and retrobular neuropathy were common in these than in normal subjects but also occurred separately; it is unknown to what extent they are due to the same aetiology (AU)

Título: Sickle cell retinopathy in young children in Jamaica
Fonte: Br J Ophthalmol;66(3):149-54, Mar. 1982.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: Ophthalmological examinations were performed on 59 of the 74 (80 percent) children with homozygous sickle cell (SS) disease and on 37 of the 54 (69 percent) children with sickle cell-haemoglobin C(SC) disease, aged 5-7.5 years, within the cohort study of sickle cell disease. Arteriolar sheathing was the commonest retinal vessel abnormality, occurring in 30/59 (51 percent) SS children and in 11/37 (30 percent) SC children. Peripheral arteriolar closure was observed in 14 (24 percent) SS children and in 6 (16 percent) SC children. Arteriovenous anastomoses were seen in 3 children, but proliferative retinopathy was not identified. Capillary changes often occurred in patients without confluent closure, suggesting that complex remodelling of the capillary bed may precede retinal nonperfusion. Discrete retinal patches similar to schisis cavities resulting from intraretinal haemorrhages were found in 22 (37 percent) SS children and in 9 (24 percent) SC children, but haemorrhages were observed in only 2 patients (1 SS, 1SC). Vitreous opacities were common and were generally associated with retinal vessel disease. Retinal changes were consistently more common in children with SS disease, though the differences failed to reach statistical significance. The prevalence of peripheral vascular closure and retinal patches showed a significant upward trend with age. These observations contrast with the greater prevalence of proliferative retinopathy characterising SC disease in adults.(AU)
