Introducción: Los errores innatos en la síntesis de ácidos biliares son un grupo de defectos genéticos que representan del 1 al 2% de las enfermedades colestásicas crónicas en lactantes, niños y adolescentes. La deficiencia de 3b-Δ5-C27-hidroxiesteroide oxidoreductasa (3b-HSDH) es el defecto más comúnmente reportado. El cuadro clínico característico consiste en hepatitis neonatal, hepatomegalia, esplenomegalia, malabsorción, desnutrición y enfermedad hepática de aparición tardía...

PURPOSE: To evaluate conjunctival impression cytology and HLADR expression changes after wearing scleral contact lenses (ScCLs) for moderate to severe dry eye disease (DED). DESIGN: Prospective interventional case series. METHODS: Forty-one eyes from 25 patients with moderate to severe DED were evaluated for Esclera ScCL treatment. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and slit-lamp findings were assessed. Impression cytology specimens were obtained from DED patients at the baseline and after wearing ScCLs for 12 months...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this work was to define the timing and magnitude of scleral contact lens settling, the factors influencing settling, and to examine whether the amount of apical clearance has an impact on clinical performance or is associated with hypoxia-induced corneal changes. METHODS: Eleven patients (22 eyes) with keratoconus were fitted with a mini-scleral lens (Esclera, Brazil). Three different lenses with successively greater sagittal depths were applied to achieve 3 levels of initial apical clearance: 100 to 200 μm (low), 200 to 300 μm (medium), and greater than 300 μm (high)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of the Esclera scleral contact lens (SCL) treatment and its impact on clinical testing for moderate to severe dry eye disease (DED). DESIGN: Prospective interventional case series. METHODS: A total of 41 eyes from 25 patients with moderate to severe DED were evaluated for the Esclera SCL treatment. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), tear osmolarity, the Schirmer I test, tear film breakup time (TBUT), corneal and conjunctival staining, meibomian grading, and Ocular Surface Disease Index and SF-36v2 questionnaires were assessed before and after the SCL treatment...

PURPOSE: To test for associations between Pentacam(®) derived topography variables and to evaluate the predictive power of those variables in relation to scleral contact lens (SCL) fit. SETTING: Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Federal University of São Paulo, São Paulo-SP, Brazil. DESIGN: Prospective observational non-randomised, non-comparative study. METHODS: Forty-seven patients (63 eyes) were indicated for the use of Esclera(®) SCL...
