RGD DISEASE ONTOLOGY - ANNOTATIONS

RGD uses the Human Disease Ontology (DO, https://disease-ontology.org/) for disease curation across species. RGD automatically downloads each new release of the ontology on a monthly basis. Some additional terms which are required for RGD's curation purposes but are not currently covered in the official version of DO have been added. As corresponding terms are added to DO, these custom terms are retired and the DO terms substituted in existing annotations and subsequently used for curation.

Definition:Swelling of the OPTIC DISK, usually in association with increased intracranial pressure, characterized by hyperemia, blurring of the disk margins, microhemorrhages, blind spot enlargement, and engorgement of retinal veins. Chronic papilledema may cause OPTIC ATROPHY and visual loss. (Miller et al., Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology, 4th ed, p175)
Synonyms:exact_synonym: choked disk;   decreased intracranial pressure associated papilledema;   edema of the optic disc;   increased intracranial pressure associated papilledema;   optic disc swelling;   optic disk edema;   optic nerve papillitis;   optic papilla edema;   papilledema associated with decreased intraocular pressure;   papilledema associated with increased intracranial pressure;   papillitis;   papilloedema
