Coats' disease. Evaluation of management. Ridley ME, Shields JA, Brown GC, Tasman W. Forty-one patients representing 43 eyes with retinal telangiectasia and subretinal exudates (Coats' Disease) were managed between 1966 and 1980. Thirty-three eyes in 31 patients between 4 and 45 years of age had an average of two quadrants involved with. A developmental or congenital vascular anomaly, which may be part of the largest spectrum of Coats Disease. A presumably acquired form found in middle-age and older patients. 1 a) Congenital Parafoveal Telangiectasia. Patients with unilateral congenital parafoveal telangiectasis typically are men whose mean age and onset of the disease is 40 years

Primary retinal telangiectasia is found in Coats' disease, Leber's miliary aneurysms (a localized, less severe form of Coats' disease), idiopathic juxtafoveal telangiectasia, and other angiomatous diseases Coats' Disease is a very severe, unilateral form of retinal telangiectasia that is most often seen in boys before age 10. Patients often present with strabismus (an eye turn) or leukocoria (a white pupil)

Primary or congenital retinal telangiectasia, more commonly called Coats' disease or Coats' syndrome, is a non-hereditary, developmental, retinal vascular disorder characterised by dilatation and exudation of the retinal vasculature, and an important cause of leucocoria in children Retinal vessel telangiectasia and aneurysmal dilations are the hallmark of stage 1 Coats' disease. Coats' disease is an idiopathic retinal vascular disorder characterized by telangiectasias and exudation. 1 The clinical features were first described in 1908 by George Coats, a Scottish ophthalmologist Since its original description in 1908, Coats disease has been recognized as an idiopathic cause of severe vision loss with a remarkable diversity in clinical presentation and morphology Patients also have retinal telangiectasia and exudates (Coats disease) as well as extraneurologic manifestations, including osteopenia with poor bone healing and a high risk of gastrointestinal bleeding and portal hypertension caused by vasculature ectasias in the stomach, small intestine, and liver

Coats' disease was defined as idiopathic retinal telangiectasia with intra-retinal and/or sub-retinal exudation, which can lead to exudative retinal detachment (RD) in absence of vitreo-retinal traction. It is a rare progressive disorder that is usually unilateral, and affecting mainly young males Retinal Vascular Diseases › Coats' Disease Severe form of retinal telangiectasia; Typically presents in the first decade; average age 5; Clinical features: Signs: Telangiectatic vessels that appear as small, red light bulbs in the retinal periphery Coats disease was first described by Dr. George Coats in 1908. The definition of the disease has since been refined by Reese in 1956 and Shields in 2000. It is characterized by unilateral telangiectatic and aneurysmal retinal vessels with intraretinal fluid, subretinal fluid (SRF), and lipid exudation

Coats' Disease: Diagnosis And Managemen

Coats disease is a telangiectasia, neovascularization disease, of unidentified aetiology, that freuquently affects unilateral eyes of kids, generally young boys. Coats disease is generally identified by unilateral (90%), progressive development of unusual vessels in the retina of the affected individuals Coats' disease is a developmental, non-inherited, progressive and almost invariably unilateral retinal vascular disease. There is a variable pattern of retinal telangiectasia, with focal dilatation of retinal vessels that are incompetent and leak fluid. Exudative retinal detachment is the most significant among multiple possible complications.

Coats disease is an eye disorder characterized by abnormal development of the blood vessels in the retina (retinal telangiectasia). Most people begin showing symptoms in childhood. Early signs and symptoms vary but may include vision loss, crossed eyes (strabismus), and a white mass in the pupil behind the lens of the eye (leukocoria).Over time, Coats disease may also lead to retinal. Coats disease (CD) is an idiopathic disorder characterized by retinal telangiectasia with deposition of intraretinal or subretinal exudates, potentially leading to retinal detachment and unilateral blindness. CD is classically an isolated and unilateral condition affecting otherwise healthy young children Staging. Shields et al. have proposed a staging system to describe the severity of Coats disease based on the appearance of telangiectasias, exudation leading to retinal detachment, and secondary complications. 6 These stages help guide the clinician in choosing management options and evaluating the prognosis.

Table 1. Staging of Coats' disease Management Treatment is based on the severity of the disease. Mild cases can be observed, but if exudation, retinal or subretinal fluid is present, the mainstay of treatment is laser ablation or cryotherapy in areas of telangiectasia and nonperfusion 8,9.. Laser - Laser photocoagulation has historically been the most effective treatment Macular telangiectasia type 1 has many overlapping features with Coats' disease. Both can present with diabetic features, including microaneurysms, exudates, hemorrhages and telangiectasia. Frequently, the age of the patient can aid in the correct diagnosis. But delayed diagnosis or adult-onset Coats' disease represents greater diagnostic. Coats' disease is an idiopathic aneurysmal retinal vasculopathy typically seen unilaterally in young boys. 1 Coats' disease is characterised by retinal vascular telangiectasia, intra‐retinal and sub‐retinal exudation, capillary non‐perfusion (CNP) and exudative retinal detachment. It may progress to neovascular glaucoma and a painful blind eye. 2 A less severe form of Coats.

Moreover, capillary telangiectasia and retinal nonperfusion may develop in both RVO and Coats' disease. RVOs occasionally exhibit a Coats-like appearance. In other words, a RVO can produce a capillary response simulating the characteristic features of Coats' disease [4] Coats disease is also known as Coats' disease, retinal telangiectasis, unilateral retinal telangiectasis, idiopathic retinal telangiectasia, primary (congenital) retinal telangiectasia, OMIM 300216. It is a sporadic idiopathic disorder characterized by abnormal retinal vascular development (retinal telangiectasis) that results in vessel leakage. COATS DISEASE.

Coats Disease SALIENT FEATURES Coats disease is a predominantly unilateral, idiopathic, nonhereditary, congenital retinal vascular abnormality. A variant of type 1 macular telangiectasia; it involves telangiectasias of small- and medium-sized retinal blood vessels without vitreoretinal traction.1 Males in their first or second decade of life are typically affected, with an earlier onset.

George Coats in 1908 identified this very rare idiopathic retinal telangiectasia with intraretinal or subretinal exudation without appreciable signs of retinal or vitreal traction that typically affects one eye of male children. We wish to share our experience with the first documented case of Coats disease in Nigeria which suggests that the. by Coats. Reese (1956) merged the two diseases into a single spectrum that started as Leber disease and then pro-gressed to Coats' disease during long-term follow-up. Subsequently, Shields et al. (2001a,b) defined Coats' disease as 'idiopathic retinal telangiectasia associated with intraretinal exudation and exudative retinal detachment.

Coats' disease is an idiopathic and nonhereditary condition caused by defect of outer retinal vascular development, characterized as retinal telangiectasia, with intraretinal and/or subretinal exudation, and without appreciable retinal or vitreous traction Coats Disease is a rare, idiopathic ocular disorder which is characterized by abnormal retinal vessel development (retinal telangiectasia) with associated exudates and hemorrhage. Coats disease typically occurs in young males in the first or second decade of life, and is typically unilateral in nature (95-100%). 25 Clinical presentation has a. Aim To evaluate the effect of supplemental intravitreal bevacizumab for management of Coats' disease.

Coats disease is an eye disorder characterized by abnormal development of the blood vessels in the retina (retinal telangiectasia). Coats disease causes blood vessels in the retina to be abnormally enlarged (dilated) and twisted. The abnormal vessels leak fluid, which can eventually cause the layers of the retina to separate (retinal detachment) Coats disease is now recognized to be a form of congenital retinal telangiectasia that most often occurs unilaterally in young males5-8 and is important in the differential diagnosis of retinoblastoma.8-10 Recent textbook chapters5-8 and numerous articles have subsequently been published on various aspects of Coats disease.11-62 In.

  1. In Type 1 macular telangiectasia, the blood vessels are dilated (enlarged) and aneurysms (or bulging of blood vessels) form. This causes swelling and damage to the macula. It usually occurs in one eye only and is believed to be a variation of Coats disease. Coats disease is a rare retinal disorder that most often impacts young people
  2. Distribution of retinal involvement is varied from vascular lesions in the para-macular or juxtafoveal area to focal vascular changes in the mid-periphery and even in anterior retina. IMT type 1 is usually considered to be a form of Coats' disease
  3. In most cases the cause for macular telangiectasia is unknown, or idiopathic, thus the name idiopathic juxta foveal macular telangiectasia. Some researchers believe the cause is hereditary and may be linked to coats disease. Other research shows patients with hypertension, high blood pressure, and diabetes may be more at risk to develop macular.

Coats disease is a rare, idiopathic, predominantly unilateral condition that manifests as severe irregular dilatation, or telangiectasia, of the retinal vasculature. Although a few cases of Coats disease regress spontaneously, (1) the majority progress over a period of years to massive sub-retinal exudation control Coats disease. In the majority, the natural course progress to Glaucoma and phthisis. However, a fewer patient has been recorded with progression.12 On the other hand, the successful treatment of retinal telangiectasia and exudates pattern was 7% and more in some patients. The suggested classification of coat disease by Shields et al., C oats' disease is characterized by retinal telangiectasia, macular oedema, exudation and, consequently, exudative retinal detachment. In its advanced stages, it may be complicated by total retinal detachment and glaucoma and may lead to phthisis bulbi (Shields et al. 2001) Coats' disease was defined as unilateral or bilateral retinal vasculopathy characterized by retinal telangiectasia, capillary non-perfusion, multiple aneurysmal formation, exudation, and exudative retinal detachment. 1-9.
