Summaries for Birdshot Chorioretinopathy

NIH Rare Diseases : 54 Birdshot chorioretinopathy is an eye condition in which painless, light-colored spots develop on the retina.  These spots are scattered in a "birdshot" pattern.  The effects of this condition on vision are quite variable; some individuals' vision is only mildly affected, whereas others experience a significant decline in vision, the appearance of floaters (small specks that appear in one's line of sight), night blindness, and other vision problems.  Symptoms typically begin around middle age; Caucasians are affected more than individuals of other ethnicities.  The cause of birdshot chorioretinopathy is currently unknown, but it is suspected to be an autoimmune disease.  Treatment may include medications that aim to regulate the body's immune response.

MalaCards based summary : Birdshot Chorioretinopathy, also known as birdshot chorioretinitis, is related to vogt-koyanagi-harada disease and panuveitis. An important gene associated with Birdshot Chorioretinopathy is HLA-A (Major Histocompatibility Complex, Class I, A), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation. The drugs Prednisone and tannic acid have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, retina and testes, and related phenotypes are visual loss and vitritis

Disease Ontology : 12 A posterior uveitis characterized by multiple small, hypopigmented, cream-colored choroidal lesions scattered symmetrically in the fundus primarily around the optic disc that presents in patients as blurred vision, floaters, photopsia, scotoma and nyctalopia.
