Causes Of Internal Ophthalmoplegia Syndrome
Eye movement disorde: I think you mean internuclear ophthalmoplegia (ino). This is a disorder of eye movement in which one eye cannot move completely to the midline. This usually results in double vision and jerky eye movements with far horizontal gaze. Ino is caused by a lesion in the brain area known as the medial logituinal fasciculus (mlf). ...Read more
What exactly causes dandy walker syndrome? My cousin has this syndrome and i'd like to know more about it.
Dandy : Dandy walker syndrome is a complex anatomical birth defect that affects about 1 in every 30000 live births. It is named after the doctors who first described it. Symptoms may include delayed motor development (for example, a child that doesn't crawl at the right age or walk at the right age), bulging of the fontanelles, enlargement of the head, abnormal eye movements, and abnormal breathing patterns. The anatomical defect has several features. The first is the impaired development of part of the cerebellum (a part of the brain that seems to coordinate movements, among other things). The second is enlargement of the fourth ventricle (a fluid filled space in the lower, back part of the brain). The third is the enlargement of the posterior fossa (a part of the skull). Dandy walker syndrome is often accompanied by hydrocephalus (enlargement of the fluid-filled cavities in the brain that increases pressure inside the head), and other birth defects involving the brain, heart, and other body parts. The dandy walker birth defect probably starts very early in development, possibly as early as 7 weeks into the pregnancy. Recent scientific research suggests that genetic mutations may contribute. However, it is probably safe to say that no one knows exactly why people get dandy walker malformation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What exactly happens when you get toxic shock syndrome? I know the symptoms but what is happening in your body? How do tampons cause it?
Vascular collapse: Bacteria grow in the vagina around the tampon that has been left in place for a period of time. The "toxic" byproducts of that growth get into the bloodstream through the vagina and release pyrogens(fever agents) in turn those toxins act on the capillaries and arterial endotheliums(cell walls) to turn them into "sieves" causing extravasation of the blood contained in the vessels and "shock". ...Read more

I understand XXX syndrome can cause tallness in girls. Is that symptom noticed early on or can that come about later in life (years past puberty)?
By adolescence: Hi. The tallness is noticed by adolescence. The height increase only occurs in females with 47, XXX until the growth plates in the long bones fuse (which occurs relatively later in 47, XXX females than in 46, XX). Once the growth plates are fused, there is no increase in linear height. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
