Dancing eye syndrome in infants

Dancing eye syndrome is the movement of the eye very quickly in many directions for reasons not available. This is caused by the route virus. The course of the course of the course of the course of the course is corrected by itself. It is mostly seen in children. It is transmitted by food and air droplets, as well as by parents not washing their hands after changing the sick baby. Dr. Elibol said, “It causes problems such as nausea, vomiting, watery diarrhea, fever, excessive loss of water and lack of tears. Generally, the disease begins to improve by balancing the loss of fluid, but rarely, serious conditions such as meningitis may occur. With the involvement of brain tissue, the child may develop 'dancing eyes syndrome'. In this syndrome, the eyes are involuntarily very fast, both horizontally and vertically, and rapid movements in succession create a chaotic image. ”
Swelling and edema of the visual nerves may occurThese rapid movements are called opsoclonus. Dr. Orhan Elibol said: “Another naming is 'manic looks' (sakkadomania). Opsoclonus may be seen in episodes or intermittently. Eyelids may be open or closed, these movements may stop asleep. In any eye stimulation, the chaotic image may increase. Patients feel that they are swaying, but there is no complaint of double vision. Another rare complication of route virus is swelling, edema, strabismus and balance disorders of the visual nerves. When dancing eyes syndrome is seen due to other causes, cortisone and chemotherapy drugs are required for treatment, while course virus disease may improve spontaneously. ”
