Can a left choroidal fissure cyst of 12mm affect vision in left eye. Blurry and double vision on and off.

Can a left choroidal  fissure  cyst  of 12mm affect vision in left eye. Blurry and double vision on and off.

Not likely: cysts of the choroid fissure or plexus are a common finding and totally asymptomatic. If you have optic neuritis this is something a neurologist and ophthalmologist need to be following. It can be a symptom of possible multiple sclerosis. It can be from other causes. Did you have a MRI with and without contrast? If they are looking for MS they will do additional images - to find lesions ...Read more

Fissure (Definition)

Grooves or clefts in various anatomical structures such as the brain (transverse fissure between cerebrum & cerebellum), the skull (sphenoidal fissure), the liver (for the ligamentum teres), the lung (oblique fissure), the spinal cord (ventral median fissure), or other structures such as the palpebral fissure between upper & lower eyelids. Can also be a tear in a structure ...Read more

Causes??
Mastoiditis 3/14
Optic Neuritis 6/14
High Lymphocytes in CSF 8/14
12 mm choroidal fissure cyst 12/14
T12 verte hemangioma 
Fluid in mastoid

Mastoid inflammation: when you have mastoid fluid this can be acute or chronic. If it is chronic - it is often from prior mastoid infection. If it is acute you will have focal pain and possible fever. It can actually be a very serious condition. In general this should be dealt with by a physician who might determine if you need antibiotics. The other findings are not related. Optic neuritis is blurred vision. ...Read more

7 yr old girl had CT scan after a seizure cause by fever and found a 0.6/0.7/0.7cm choroidal fissure cyst in right frontal lobe should I be concerned?

7 yr old girl had CT scan after a seizure cause by fever and found a 0.6/0.7/0.7cm choroidal fissure cyst in right frontal lobe should I be concerned?

Reassurance: Most likely the cyst represents congenital variation, and had no effect upon what may have been a "febrile seizure". Nonetheless, it would be prudent to redo the imaging in about a year to make certain than cyst does not change in size. Your doctor can guide further followup arrangements. ...Read more

Clear MRI in July and now in December I have a 12mm cyst in the left choroidal fissure. What is this and can it cause symptoms?

Clear MRI in July and now in December I have a 12mm cyst in the left choroidal  fissure. What is this and can it cause symptoms?

Double check old MRI: choroidal fissure cyst is a congenital developmental lesion which almost never causes symptoms. It is near the temporal horn of the lateral ventricle and can be easily mistaken for this normal anatomical structure. Make sure the lesion was not present previously on the July MRI. If it really is new, it could be lots of things such as infection (cysticercosis), or neoplasm. ...Read more

If a cyst increases : In size to the point that it compresses brain tissue adjacent to it, it may cause symptoms, sometimes seizures, the type of which depends on its location. Congenital choroidal fissure cysts are benign, cerebro-spinal fluid-filled cysts that rarely cause smptoms or require surgical treatment. However, if these symptoms are new, see her neurologist to determine their significance. ...Read more

Should i be worried about a neuroepthial cyst located in the left choroid fissure region with numbness and tingling on left side.

My 5 year old has been having headaches, one day causing vomiting. she just had an MRI done that shows very small choroidal cyst and "few small foci of scattered white matter T2/FLAIR hyperintense signal abnormality." It says they are nonspecific and may

Choroidal cysts: Are usually incidental findings and don't cause symptoms. However, a 5 year old shouldn't be having headaches and vomiting. You should see a pediatric neurologist ASAP about the scattered white matter signal abnormalities, and whether they might be contributing to the 5 year old's symptoms. ...Read more

I have a herniated disc at l-5 s-1 with an annular fissure sacroillitis in both si joints and coccyx pain. I have had this pain for over a year have had a surgery to remove a pillion ideal cyst which wasn't there.Have had 3 injections including a coccygea

I have a herniated disc at l-5 s-1 with an annular fissure sacroillitis in both si joints and coccyx pain. I have had this pain for over a year have had a surgery to remove a pillion ideal cyst which wasn't there.Have had 3 injections including a coccygea

These : These can be difficult problems to fix and often poorly respond to treatment including surgery. Patients that have failed conservative treatment you may consider the following options:

1. L5-s1 disk with annular tissue - recommend discogram to determine if this is the cause of the pain followed by either endoscopic discectomy or fusion surgery. Please see my health guides on endoscopic disk surgery.
2. Si joint pain - consideration for si joint fusion.
3.Coccyx pain - if pain is related to prior fracture sometimes surgical removal of the coccyx may give pain relief

i would recommend seeing spine surgeon. Good luck! ...Read more

Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
