Oculomotor Apraxia Cogan Type malady
Rare diseases, Eye diseases categories
NINDS:44 A coma, sometimes also called persistent vegetative state, is a profound or deep state of unconsciousness. Persistent vegetative state is not brain-death. An individual in a state of coma is alive but unable to move or respond to his or her environment. Coma may occur as a complication of an underlying illness, or as a result of injuries, such as head trauma. . Individuals in such a state have lost their thinking abilities and awareness of their surroundings, but retain non-cognitive function and normal sleep patterns. Even though those in a persistent vegetative state lose their higher brain functions, other key functions such as breathing and circulation remain relatively intact. Spontaneous movements may occur, and the eyes may open in response to external stimuli. Individuals may even occasionally grimace, cry, or laugh. Although individuals in a persistent vegetative state may appear somewhat normal, they do not speak and they are unable to respond to commands.
MalaCards based summary: Oculomotor Apraxia Cogan Type, also known as coma, is related to hepatitis and hepatic coma. Affiliated tissues include eye and brain.
NIH Rare Diseases:43 Oculomotor apraxia cogan type is a very rare inherited eye condition characterized by a defect in side-to-side (horizontal) eye movements. when affected infants rotate their heads to the side to look at an object, their eyes will lag and then move in the opposite direction. to compensate for this, these infants will sharply jerk their heads past the desired object in effort to bring the eyes to a position where they can view the object. this condition can also be associated with mild developmental delay and speech difficulties. symptoms usually improve throughout the first and second decades of life. the specific cause and inheritance pattern is unknown. around 50 cases have been described in the medical literature. last updated: 4/22/2011
MedlinePlus:34 A coma is a deep state of unconsciousness. an individual in a coma is alive but unable to move or respond to his or her environment. coma may occur as a complication of an underlying illness, or as a result of injuries, such as brain injury. a coma rarely lasts more than 2 to 4 weeks. the outcome for coma depends on the cause, severity, and site of the damage. people may come out of a coma with physical, intellectual, and psychological problems. some people may remain in a coma for years or even decades. for those people, the most common cause of death is infection, such as pneumonia. nih: national institute of neurological disorders and stroke
