SUDDEN DECREASE IN VISION IN ONE EYE AFTER SHARP PAINS IN THE BACK AND LOWER ABDOMEN
Purpose: Thepurposeof thisarticleistoidentifytherelationshipbetween diseases of the retina and the genitourinary tract.
Methods: A case study.
Results: The present study provides new histopathologic information regarding the formation and progression of idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM).
Conclusion: The appearance of the epiretinal membrane may be of an inflammatory nature. Inflammation is possible due to an imbalance between the microbiota of the genitourinary tract and the antibodies surrounding them.
This theory has not yet been proven, but numerous examples of the relationship between these diseases of the genitourinary tract and eye diseases allow us to make such an assumption.
