The condition may occur in neonates before the onset of labor, during the actual delivery, or after delivery. Extensive brain damage in neonates may cause abnormal levels of consciousness, muscular tone, reflexes, feeding and respiration; as well as convulsions.

However, this condition displays a tendency for relapse and there is no long-term cure.

Leber’s optic atrophy is a hereditary condition usually transmitted through the mother, in which gradual loss of central vision occurs due to degeneration of nerve cells in the retina. This condition is usually observed in adult young males. The vision loss can be either acute or sub-acute, and is usually observed in one eye, followed a few weeks to a few months later by the other eye. There is no specific treatment for this condition in the modern system of medicine. Conservative management of Leber’s optic atrophy includes regular supervision and monitoring, and avoiding the use of substances which are known to aggravate this condition. These include the use of tobacco, alcohol, and medications like ethambutol and some anti-hypertensive medicines.
