Esotropia is a type of strabismus or eye misalignment. The term is derived from 2 Greek words: ésò, meaning inward, and trépò, meaning turn. In esotropia, the eyes are crossed; that is, while one.. Etiology. The etiology of infantile esotropia is unknown. Many theories have been postulated regarding the pathogenesis of the disease. Worth theory suggests that there is an irreparable congenital defect in the infant's visual system and that surgery can be carried out at leisure mostly for cosmetic purposes The cause of an esotropia depends on when it first occurs. In adults, a sudden onset of esotropia can be a sign of a very serious condition. 2 In infants and toddlers, esotropia is usually a sign of an abnormal development of the binocular system that develops in the brain. However, there are other causes Esotropia is a type of eye misalignment (known as strabismus) that occurs when one or both of the eyes turn inward. The crossing can be constant or only happen sometimes. Many people have a tendency for their eyes to drift in when they are looking at an object. If the eyes are easily able to refocus, this is called esophoria Acute acquired concomitant esotropia (AACE), or acute late-onset concomitant esotropia, are generally agreed to be characterized by a sudden onset of concomitant esotropia with diplopia after infancy or in older children and adults. 1-4,6 Some reports describe AACE as being an acute-onset condition confined to children ≥ 5 years of age, which might be one of the primary features that differentiates it from acquired nonaccommodative esotropia. 2,14 However, in several other studies it was.

Esotropia: abnormal convergence of visual axes (inward deviation) [Figure caption and citation for the preceding image starts]: Esotropia: left eye fixating (note decentered light reflection on right cornea) From the collection of Dr Daniel J. Salchow [Citation ends] Acute acquired concomitant esotropia (AACE) is a rare, distinct subtype of esotropia. The purpose of this retrospective study was to describe the clinical characteristics and discuss the classification and etiology of AACE.Charts from 47 patients with AACE referred to our institute between October 2010 and November 2014 were reviewed

Other Types of ophthalmic conditions. a-pattern. Accommodative esotropia, a common variety of acquired esotropia, develops between 2 years and 4 years of age and is associated with hyperopia. Sensory esotropia occurs when severe visual loss (due to conditions such as cataracts, optic nerve anomalies, or tumors) interferes with the brain's effort to maintain ocular alignment CONGENITAL (INFANTILE) ESOTROPIA Epidemiology and Etiology. The cause of congenital esotropia is unknown. Theories include both a primary defect in sensory development of the brain that leads to the abnormal alignment as well as a primary motor theory in which the ocular misalignment is the primary abnormality, which then leads to a secondary disruption of binocular vision
Esotropia is greater for near than that for distance (minimal or no deviation for distance). It is fully corrected by adding +3 DS for near vision. iii. Mixed accommodative esotropia: It is caused by combination of hypermetropia and high AC/A ratio. Esotropia for distance is corrected by correction of hypermetropia; and the residua This disease may progress over several years, from a small degree of esotropia with free ocular movement to the end stage of large angle fixed esotropia. Etiology. The underlying etiology of strabismus fixus still remains unclear Etiology. Accommodative esotropia is caused by accommodative convergence associated with hyperopia. As infants, the eyes are straight, but as they learn to accommodate to see clearly, the fusional divergence is not adequate and the child develops esotropia.

It is associated with maldevelopment of stereopsis, motion processing, and eye movements. Amblyopia is a frequent consequence of infantile esotropia. Its exact cause has yet to be identified, and an effective treatment strategy is yet to be.
Esotropia describes an inward turning of the eye and is the most common type of strabismus in infants. Young children with esotropia do not use their eyes together. In most cases, special glasses, bifocals, or early surgery to align the eyes is needed to allow for binocular vision development and to prevent permanent vision loss Essential infantile esotropia was initially called congenital esotropia. But former term preferable as term essential explains the unknown etiology and 'infantile' the period of occurrence. The esodeviation is rarely present at birth to term it congenital. Esodeviation persisting at >4months of age is considered to be abnormal 3,4 Although the etiology of acute acquired concomitant esotropia is still debated, it has been associated with sustained nearpoint demands due to the excessive use of computers, tablets, and smart-phones.7 In particular, Lee et al7 documented a series of 12 teenagers with acute acquired concomitant esotropia who used smartphones more than 4 hours.
Childhood Exotropia : Symptoms, Causes and Management. Childhood exotropia (outward deviation) is a horizontal exodeviation characterised by visual axis forming a divergent angle. It usually begins as exophoria. Exophoria is a condition in which eyes are straight without deviation when both eyes are open. However, eye under cover deviates on. . Congenital esotropia (CE) is characterized by a large angel constant esotropia of 40 PD or more ( Figure 1 ) and later developing motor dysfunctions, including inferior oblique overaction (IOOA) (60%), dissociated vertical deviation (DVD) (40%), and latent. The three forms are described under which an acutely arising comitant esotropia may be observed. It is concluded that the etiology of the acute esotropia following artificial interruption of. Introduction . Esotropia is a form of strabismus that can give the aected individual a cross-eyed appearance. Acute onset of esotropia is an uncommon form; in the vast majority of cases, no underlying neurological etiology is found. Case Presentation .A - year-old female with a long history of opiate abuse presented with acute onset of diplopia
Esotropia is a type of strabismus or eye misalignment. Additional laboratory and clinical research often is required to determine the etiology of the acquired strabismus. Scientists agree that some strabismus cases arise from a primary motor anomaly, while others arise from a primary sensory anomaly.. Comitant esotropia typically presents during infancy or early childhood and is usually benign and unrelated to an underlying neurological disorder. 1 Acute acquired comitant esotropia is an infrequent type of strabismus that develops in children usually older than five years, adolescents and young adults with prior normal binocular vision. 1-4. Acute acquired concomitant esotropia (AACE) is a rare presentation of esotropia which occurs in children, adults, and even the elderlies .Three main types have been defined by Burian and Miller in 1958: (1) swan type: concomitant esotropia due to the disruption of fusion precipitated by monocular occlusion or loss of vision in one eye in infants or children ; (2) Burian-Franceschetti type. Acute acquired comitant esotropia (AACE) is a relatively rare presentation of esotropia characterized by a sudden onset of comitant esotropia with diplopia, which often occurs in older children and adults [1,2,3].There were a number of reports about the etiologies, clinical characteristics and treatment of AACE, but case series in most of the reports were limited and few studies focused on.
Etiology Accommodative esotropia is caused by accommodative convergence associated with hyperopia. [eyewiki.aao.org] When patients report diplopia, particularly if recent in onset, you must first rule out potentially life-threatening etiologies The etiology of the so called A and V syndromes. Am J Ophthal 1951; 46:245-267 Patients with accommodative eSotropia may have Pseudo- V pattern This is particularly apparent if the patient is examined without hypermetropic correction as with Uncorrectedhyperopia there is a tendency to accommodate in the primary gaze and downgaze, thus. There is a near esophoria of 4 to 6 D. The esotropia resolves about 30 minutes after discontinuing physical exercise. All laboratory studies and neuroradiologic tests have remained normal in this patient. The etiology remains unknown, and the problem of acute divergence paralysis has persisted for 18 years Comitant esotropia is a common condition affecting all age groups. It is extremely important to evaluate the cause of the deviation, because the management would vary depending on the etiology. Further, unlike in most cases of exodeviation the propensity to develop amblyopia is much higher if esodeviations are not treated in time
INTRODUCTION. Strabismus is the term used to describe an anomaly of ocular alignment (see Evaluation and management of strabismus in children, section on 'Terminology').The eye misalignment can involve either eye and can occur in any direction; it can be congenital or acquired, latent or manifest, constant or intermittent, and fixed or variable, depending upon the position of gaze and other. ETIOLOGY: • stress • anxiety MANAGEMENT: • neuro-imaging (MRI with contrast focusing on the brainstem to rule out secondary convergence spasm etiologies) • reading glasses with BI prism (if due to accommodative lead) • hyperopia spectacles or bifocals (if uncorrected hyperopia) • cycloplegic drops, atropine • binasal occlusio Legmann Simon A, Borchert M.

TABLE 1 Exotropia is a type of strabismus, which is a misalignment of the eyes. Exotropia is a condition in which one or both eyes turn outward away from the nose. It's the opposite of crossed eyes. Loss of the tertiary abducting action causes a V-pattern esotropia (esotropia greater in downgaze) in half of patients (2).

Etiology Clinical features Extorsion of the eye : inability to depress and adduct the eyeball simultaneously (the. In a small cohort of patients who developed acute acquired esotropia, the authors determined through clinical examination and MRI of the extraocular muscles and the brain the etiology of decompensated esophoria. The clinical characteristics as well as response to strabismus surgery are described . Symptoms typically last 4 to 72 hours and may be severe. Pain is often unilateral, throbbing, worse with exertion, and accompanied by symptoms such as nausea and sensitivity to light, sound, or odors. Auras occur in about 25% of patients, usually just before but sometimes after the headache
A memo service based on brain science that will stay in your memorie The etiology of most infantile and pediatric forms of strabismus is poorly understood. Comitant (concomitant) strabismus seems to be a complex genetic trait, with the involvement of more than one gene. Twin studies have revealed a concordance rate of 73% to 82% among monozygotic twins and 35% to 47% among dizygotic twins
Sensory esotropia may be the first presenting feature of retinoblastoma, a life-threatening malignancy of the retina. Full eye exam including dilated fundus exam is required for children presenting with esotropia. Cyclic esotropia. This is a rare type of esotropia that appears and disappears in a periodic fashion, usually in a 48- to 72- hour. Exotropia—or an outward turning of the eyes—is a common type of strabismus accounting for up to 25 percent of all ocular misalignment in early childhood. Transient intermittent exotropia is sometimes seen in the first 4 - 6 weeks of life and, if mild, can resolve spontaneously by 6 - 8 weeks of age. Constant exotropia is only rarely present. What is the etiology of infantile esotropia? - innervational disturbance (imbalance between tonic convergence and tonic divergence - excessive tonic convergence) - deficient fusion (delayed development in the vergence system so that their cortical motor fusion is unable to stabilize ocular alignment
The etiology of this esotropia may be based on either the Chavasse or the Worth theory. The Chavasse theory has led to progressively earlier surgical intervention for infantile esotropia, as this is thought to result in better sensory outcomes [ 8 - 15 ], especially with surgery prior to 6 months of age or within the duration of the.

The condition can be constant or intermittent and cause an individual to appear cross-eyed. There are four different forms of esotropia: Congenital (infantile) esotropia. Esotropia with amblyopia. Accommodative esotropia Accommodative esotropia, or refractive esotropia, is one of the most common forms of esotropia (crossed eye), which is a type of strabismus, or eye misalignment. It refers to eye crossing that is caused by the focusing efforts of the eyes as they try to see clearly. Patients with refractive esotropia are typically farsighted (hyperopic)

The inability of an eye to turn outward, results in a convergent strabismus or esotropia of which the primary symptom is diplopia (commonly known as double.
It is hoped that a discussion of common features of the condition will guide further exploration of the etiology. AB - The authors present three patients with idiopathic exercise-induced esotropia. The history, physical findings, and testing that led to the diagnosis are discussed esotropia. A vertical deviation may be either a hypotropia or a hypertropia, depending on whether the eye moves up or down respectively. The examiner should determine whether the tropia is comitant or non-comitant by seeing if the magnitude of the deviation varies with the position of the eye, by which the variation is not seen in the former bu esotropia in the population is about 1%, while the prevalence of infantile esotropia reported at birth is 27 per 10.000 live births . Its etiology is a source of controversy and remains unknown [1,4]. Esotropia is most prevalent in Europeans and their descendants, if compared to divergent strabismus. In Asia, exotropias are more prevalent 
Strabismus refers to a misalignment of the eyes. If strabismus develops in adults, it can cause diplopia (double vision) and visual confusion (seeing different objects in the same location), and it is an important cause of amblyopia in children.

Accommodative esotropia: This often occurs in cases of uncorrected farsightedness and a genetic predisposition (family history) for the eyes to turn in. Because the ability to focus is linked to where the eyes are pointing, the extra focusing effort needed to keep distant objects in clear focus may cause the eyes to turn inward Etiology: Specific facial morphological features, including the orbit size or shape, globe size or shape, characteristics of the retrobulbar tissue, and eyelid margin anatomy are associated with this condition. 3,4 Pseudoesotropia is most commonly seen in patients with prominent epicanthal folds, such as infants (i.e. prior to development of.

Types of Squint . Paralytic . 3rd Nerve Palsy. 4th Nerve palsy. Non Paralytic. 6th Nerve palsy . Esotropia. Exotropi Convergent strabismus is a common diagnosis in early childhood, when it is mostly considered benign. If it develops later in life, strabismus can, however, be a sign of neurological disease. In these cases the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms are largely unknown. In this retrospective case-control study we analyzed the neuro-ophthalmological examination reports of 400 adult patients. Esotropia noted within the first 6 months of life is termed infantile (or congenital) and in most instances is present in an otherwise normal child. Although the etiology is unclear, Worth's concept postulates a deficiency in cortical in the brain,.
relatively steady since then. No etiology was found. Ophthalmological examination reveals isolated right VI-th nerve paresis, with limited abduction (- 3) and esotropia (Figure 5); no history of vascular diseases or diabetes. Cerebral MRI with contrast was again recommended, which revealed a small tumor (probably meningioma The prevalence of esotropia in the population is about 1%, while the prevalence of infantile esotropia reported at birth is 27 per 10.000 live births . Its etiology is a source of controversy and remains unknown [1,4]. Esotropia is most prevalent in Europeans and their descendants, if compared to divergent strabismus For this patient, 25 PD of the esotropia is accommodative in etiology and caused by the hyperopia, and 20 PD of the esotropia is nonaccommodative. The nonaccommodative component has been attributed to either increased convergence tonus or mechanical factors such as contracture or hypertrophy of the medial rectus muscles,. Abstract. Cyclic esotropia, a rare condition of obscure etiology characterized by regularly alternating periods of esotropia and orthophoria. We present a case of a 7-year-old boy who underwent surgical correction for intermittent exotropia elsewhere and developed esotropia with cyclic pattern post-operatively
Background. Intermittent exotropia (IXT) is the most common form of childhood exotropia 1, 2 with an incidence of 32.1 per 100,000 in children under 19 years of age. 1 The strabismus is characterized by an exodeviation of one eye that is interspersed with periods of ocular alignment. 3 Reliable measurement of the deviation is often hindered by the variable nature of the strabismus, 3 and. The authors report two cases of suddenly deteriorated accommodative esotropia with amblyopia during part-time occlusion therapy. A 7-year-old girl with right accommodative esotropia, which was well controlled, showed marked increase in esodeviation after part-time occlusion and regained orthophoria without occlusion Duane retraction syndrome: causes, effects and management strategies Ramesh Kekunnaya, Mithila Negalur Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Services, Child Sight Institute, Jasti V Ramannama Children's Eye Care Center, KAR Campus, Hyderabad, India Abstract: Duane retraction syndrome (DRS) is a congenital eye movement anomaly characterized by variable horizontal duction deficits, with. Etiology. Of the known causes Comitant esotropia is not likely due to acute VI nerve palsies, but chronic VI nerve palsies may be associated with spread of comitance and lose the typical gaze-dependent nature of the abduction deficit. Nevertheless, comitant esotropia is more likely to represent childhood strabismus, and may be associated.
Fourth cranial nerve palsies can affect patients of any age or gender. They can present with vertical diplopia, torsional diplopia, head tilt, and ipsilateral hypertropia. Determining the onset, severity, and chronicity of symptoms can be vital in delineating between the various etiologies of a CN 4 palsy. Furthermore, careful history including. Symptoms may come and go or they may be constant. The condition causes poor depth perception, uncoordinated eye movements, double vision and vision loss. Strabismus develops when the brain and the eye muscles fail to connect. It may accompany certain conditions, including stroke, diabetes, thyroid disorders, Grave's disease or cerebral palsy
Design: Retrospective noncomparative case series. Participants: Seven children with esotropia that decreased with their compensatory abnormal head tilt. Six of the patients had trisomy 21. The patients had no other identifiable etiology for their head tilt, including no oblique muscle dysfunction, nystagmus that changed with head tilt, or. Ophthalmology 1999;106:1727-1730 Acute, acquired concomitant esotropia is a rare but well- an acute esotropia with a large angle, absence of signs of recognized condition of unknown etiology characterized by paralysis, and good potential for binocular cooperation High myopia esotropia is a kind of special strabismus whose pathology is still uncertain. In this paper, the finite element analysis method is applied to examine some physiological hypotheses by modeling the movement of the eyeball and morbid extraocular muscles. The model stems from clinical data Discussion Esotropia is the inward deviation of one or both eyes toward the nose. Only 1-2% of estotropia in infants is congenital, termed infantile esotropia. Most conditions of esotropia in infants are due to a 6th cranial nerve palsy. The most common cause of 6th cranial nerve palsy in children is due to trauma The etiology, pathogenesis, and treatment for this condition are reviewed. CASE REPORT: A 37-year-old man with high unilateral myopia and anisometropic amblyopia in his left eye developed cyclic esotropia 2 months after a scleral buckle procedure for a retinal detachment
