List the main feature(s) of these fundoscopy images a), b) and c) and name the conditions associated with them.
The images below are not from the college paper, but rather harvested from Google Images, labelled for non-commerical reuse.
- a) Retinal Haemorrhage (Coagulopathy, thrombocytopenia)
- b) Papilloedema (Raised intracranial pressure)
- c) Optic disc swelling, retinal haemorrhages and infarcts or cotton wool spots. (Malignant Hypertension)
This is a bog-standard pattern recognition question.
I need to point out that the image in a) is one of branch retinal vein occlusion - it just so happens that it also features retinal haemorrhage.
Common fundoscopy findings are discussed with (slightly) more detail in the relevant Required Reading section.
