Roth Spots

Roth spots are pale or white centered retinal hemorrhagesĀ named after a famous pathologist Moritz Roth. It is seen through slit lamp examination or fundoscopy.

These generally result due to conditions like Diabetes, Anemia, Endocarditis. It may be observed in Diabetes, Leukemia, Bacterial Endocarditis, Ischemic events and sometimes observed in HIV patients as well. The patients undergo Leukepheresis (removal of white blood cells in chronic lymphocytic leukemia) and they would be treated with Hydroxyurea (anti-cancer chemotherapy drug) . This would lead to reduction in the Leukocyte content. But it is always advisable to consult a doctor, who would determine if any treatment is needed, or whether to continue or discontinue an ongoing treatment.
