ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DISEASES OF THE GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT AND THE OCCURRENCE OF DEMENTIA IN HUMANS (TESSELATED FUNDUS)
Purpose: The purpose of this article is to reveal the relationship between eye diseases and common systemic diseases.
Methods: This article is an observational study of clinical cases of eye diseases and their association with common diseases. Four patients took part. These patients all had a similar picture of the posterior segment of the eye, a tessellated fundus. Additionally, all four patients had certain diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.
Results: We found that patients with a parquet type (tessellated fundus) fundus, before the appearance of this symptom, often had diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. In turn, the parquet type of fundus is an important predictor of degenerative brain diseases and cerebrovascular accidents.
Conclusion: There is a link between eye diseases and the gastrointestinal tract. In turn, disorders of the gastrointestinal tract are associated with a disturbance of the microbiota located on the mucous membranes of this tract. Recently, scientific articles have appeared that establish this connection. We consider it important to conduct further research in this direction.
Moreover, the careful observation of clinical cases of eye diseases and their connection with common diseases can answer many questions in the medical field.
