Ichthyosiform dermatosis is a term referred to a group of disorders that have as their basis a disorder of keratinization (1). These conditions which are present at birth result in a generalized dry, scaly skin without any inflammation. There are several types of ichthyosis based on their clinical presentation and mode of inheritance. The most common types are: ichthyosis vulgaris, X-linked recessive ichthyosis, epidermolytic hyperkeratosis (bullous), lamellar ichthyosis and non-bullous ichthyosiform erythroderma...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of lacrimal sac abscess of the traditional surgical approach may result in complications from cutaneous fistula formation, damage the sac, cause skin scarring and even have the potential for inducing cicatricial ectropion. We designed a new treatment scheme that is expected to achieve internal drainage with the use of lacrimal probe and crawford silicon tube. METHODS: A prospective study was performed for the management of lacrimal sac abscesses...

Two surgical procedures for ectropion correction are compared: the widespread "lateral tarsal strip" and the more recently introduced "tarsal belt" techniques. A retrospective interventional patient series of 40 patients with mono or bilateral ectropion are investigated.Distances of lower lid margin from interpupillary line before surgery and after 1, 6, 12, and 24 months in tarsal belt and lateral tarsal strip surgical procedure are compared. The postoperative distance is reduced in both the groups of patients, but as regard the tarsal belt the amount of correction is greater and more stable over time and this difference is statistically significant...

INTRODUCTION: About 20% of patients with a diagnosis of primary renal cell carcinoma (RCC) present directly with metastatic disease. The aim of the present manuscript is to describe, for the first time a RCC metastasis located to the distal female urethra and to present an update on metastatic locations to the male spermatic cord. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report two cases of rare RCC metastases. The first concerns a 92-year-old female patient who came to our attention for recurrent urethral bleeding, which was initially believed to be secondary to urethral mucosal ectropion...

AIM: In the contemporary medicine, strong emphasis is put on early closing of body surface defects, which contributes to good and early healing, but, of course, closes the entrance gate for possible infection as well. The easiest closing of the defect is the direct suture of the emerged wound. But some defects are of such an extent, so their closure is necessary to handle other way than simple suture, e.g. by rotating flap plastic surgery. In the paper are evaluated results of flap surgery technique in 56 patients...

BACKGROUND: Iridocorneal endothelial (ICE) syndrome occurs mainly in young and middle-aged women and typically presents as a unilateral disease characterized by abnormalities of the iris and corneal endothelium. While the ICE syndrome is known to be associated with glaucoma and bullous keratopathy, to our knowledge, only two cases of ICE syndrome complicated with cystoid macular edema (CME) have been reported to date. In this paper, we report a case of ICE syndrome complicated with CME treated at our institution...

Distichiasis presents as double rows of eyelashes arising from aberrant differentiation of the meibomian glands of the eyelids, and it may be sporadic or hereditary. FOXC2 gene mutations in hereditary distichiasis are rarely reported. Here, we examined two generations of a Chinese family with hereditary distichiasis but without lymphedema or other features of LD syndrome. The FOXC2 gene was amplified and sequenced in all family members. Subcellular localization and luciferase assays were performed to assess the activity of the mutant FOXC2 protein...

H Jiang, A T Liu
Postburn facial scar contracture, which can cause disfigurement and functional impairment, is a major therapeutic challenge. Except for some scars with severe functional impairments such as ectropion of lid, obstruction of nostril, microstomia, and so on, other kinds of facial scars are recommended to be reconstructed after they become sufficiently softened. The selection of specific methods depends on the characteristics of the facial scar. The methods includ direct closure after resection, full or split-thickness skin transplantation, pedicled flap, distant flap, and free flap transfer, and tissue expansion...

We compared the result of replacement using a modified face-lift technique with those of other commonly used surgical techniques for the treatment of defects of the soft tissue of the infraorbital and cheek region. We made a retrospective observational study of 86 patients who had defects of the facial soft tissue after excision of malignant tumours. Procedures used for reconstructions included non-vascularised skin grafts, local flaps, facelift technique, and microvascular free flaps, and we evaluated morbidity; duration of hospital stay; the need for, and duration of stay in, the intensive care unit (ICU); and functional and aesthetic outcomes...
