Here we go again!

Now I am starting to have issues with my right eye.  They need to publish a guide called Eale’s disease:  For patients.    Not Eales disease and severl words following it that you need to be a Latin major to comprehend.

Eales disease and some of its monikers

Some of the names associated with Eale’ s-

macular edema, retinal neovascularization, periphlebitis retinae, retinal periphlebitis, retinal vasculitis, vasculitis retinae, Idiopathic obliterative vasculopathy, Idiopathic recurrent vitreal hemorrhage, Peripheral neovascular retinopathy, Idiopathic obliterative vasculopathy, Idiopathic recurrent vitreal hemorrhage, idiopathic edema of the eye…

I am quite sure this list could go on for a while.  Still no real answers on what causes it, but looking for patients who have been diagnosed with Eale’s disease.

In recent years, immunological, molecular biological, and biochemical studies have indicated the role of human leukocyte antigen, retinal autoimmunity, mycobacterium tuberculosis genome, and free radical mediated damage in the etiopathogenesis of this disease. However, its etiology appears to be multifactorial.
