           --> but not rely solely on clinical findings

# inflammation by silver nitrate

    ; occurs within 6-12hr

           --> clearing by 24-48hr

# gonococcal conjunctivitis

    ; incubation periods

           - 2-5days

    ; serosanguineous discharge

           --> thick & purulent within 24hr discharge

    ; spread to deeper layer of conjunctivae, cornea

    ; Complication

           - corneal ulcertion & perforation, iridocyclitis, ant. synechiae, panophthalmitis

# inclusion blennorrhea

    ; incubation periods

           - 5-14days

    ; copious purulent discharge

    ; involved mainly tarsal conjunctivae


# gonococcal conjunctivitis

    ; *ceftriaxone 25-50mg/kg/day for 7days

Chapter 581. Disorders Of The Retinal And Vitreous

Retinopathy Of Prematurity


# Injury to process(retinal angiogenesis from optic disk to periphery)

# 1st observation in acute phase

    ; *cessation of vasculogenesis(abrupt termination of the vessels)

           --> grow into ridge composed of mesenchymal & endothelial cells

           --> vascularization of retina

           --> *abnormal proliferation of vessels out of plaine of retina

           --> cicatrization & traction on retina

           --> detachment

# *Major factors

    ; *prematurity & retinal immaturity at birth

    ; hyperoxia

# other problems

    ; respiratory distress, apnea, brdycardia, heart disese, infection, hypoxia, hypercarbia, cidosis, nemia, need for transfusion


# Zone I ; twice disk-macular distance

# Zone II ; ora serrata nasally, anatomic equtor temporally

# Zone III

    ; residual crescent

    ; vasculized last

    ; *frequently involved with ROP

# Staging

    I ; demarcation line

    II ; ridge

           - grown demarcation line with height, width, volume

    III ; development of extraretinal fibrovascular tissue

    IV(1) ; subtotal retinal detachment not involving macula

    IV(2) ; subtotal retinal detachment involving macula

    V ; total retinal detachment

Clinical Course And Prognosis

; 90% - spontaneous arrest & regression

; left with demarcation line, undervascularization, abnormal branching, tortuosity or strightening of retinal vessels

; *Dragged Disk
