BACKGROUND: Spasmus Nutans (SN) is a rare pediatric ophthalmologic syndrome of nystagmus, head bobbing and abnormal head positioning. Historically, SN has been associated with underlying optic pathway gliomas (OPG); however, evidence of this is association is based primarily on a small number of isolated case reports. Prior retrospective analyses have found the rate of OPG to be less than 2%, but only intermittently utilized neuroimaging with CT, which has limited sensitivity for detection of small lesions in the optic pathway...

BACKGROUND: Growth impairment remains common in children with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Available literature indicates low level of recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) utilization in short children with CKD. Despite efforts at consensus guidelines, lack of high-level evidence continues to complicate rhGH therapy decision-making and the level of practice variability in rhGH treatment by pediatric nephrologists is unknown. METHODS: Cross-sectional online survey electronically distributed to pediatric nephrologists through the Midwest Pediatric Nephrology Consortium and American Society of Pediatric Nephrology...

INTRODUCTION: Because management of hearing loss (HL) often requires multiple specialists, a multidisciplinary clinic, Pediatric Hearing Management Clinic, (PHMC) was established to coordinate care for children with newly diagnosed HL. METHODS: Retrospective review of patients seen in PHMC from February 2009 to April 2010. RESULTS: Clinic information was available for 40/41 of the patients and was included in the study. 37/41 had confirmed HL...

PURPOSE: To analyze trends in US pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus (PO&S) Match over the last 16 years. METHODS: We reviewed the PO&S Match outcomes from 2000 to 2015, evaluating the number of participating programs, positions offered, and match rate, comparing it with other subspecialties, and analyzing results of US graduates versus international medical graduates (IMGs). A survey of PO&S program directors explored exposure to PO&S, policies on acceptance of IMGs, fellowship gross salary, job opportunities, and fellow placement after training...

Intraocular teratomas are rare neoplasms with only three previously reported cases. We present the fourth case of intraocular teratoma and the second associated with sacrococcygeal teratoma. While the nature of the association between intraocular teratomas and sacrococcygeal teratomas is unclear, it suggests a need for careful ophthalmologic follow-up of infants with congenital sacrococcygeal teratomas.

PURPOSE: To assess the differences in work needed for pediatric and adult ophthalmologic examinations. METHODS: Seven ophthalmology residents conducted slit-lamp and refraction examinations on children 3-7 years of age and adults 20-69 years of age. The examiners reported the magnitude estimate (ME) of their work in relation to two references (cross-reference ME): average adult examination and average pediatric examination. The examination time was also measured...

PURPOSE: To investigate the onset and rate of progression of high anisometropia in myopic children younger than 13 years. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed on children with anisometropia younger than 13 years with myopia of more than 4.00 diopters (D) in the more ametropic eye and a difference in spherical equivalent refraction of 4.00 D between both eyes. All children had a complete ophthalmologic examination, including measurement of visual acuity and cycloplegic refraction every 3 to 6 months for at least 5 years...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effectiveness of the Shin-Nippon NVision-K 5001 autorefractometer (Rexxam Co. Ltd., Osaka, Japan) (also branded as the Grand Seiko WR-5100K; Grand Seiko Co. Ltd., Hiroshima, Japan) based on the open-field refractometry principle in refractive measurements of preschool children and to determine its ability to eliminate accommodation adequately. METHODS: The refractive results of 114 preschool children who presented to the ophthalmology outpatient department for screening were evaluated...

Lan Yao, Hong Zhao, Bailin Jiang, Yi Feng
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Pediatric ophthalmologic surgery is traditionally accomplished by general anesthesia with opioids, but respiratory depression remains a major concern. Our study compared the efficacy of retrobulbar block with systemic fentanyl on pain, hemodynamic, and stress response in pediatric vitreoretinal surgery. METHODS: A prospective double-blind, randomized controlled study was performed comparing retrobulbar block with intravenously administered fentanyl in 28 children aged 1 to 6 years undergoing vitreoretinal surgery...

Cystinosis is a rare autosomal recessive disease with an incidence of approximately 1 case per 100,000-200,000 live births. Over the years, gaining in-depth knowledge of the disease has led to vast improvement in patient life expectancy. However, debilitating, extra-renal manifestations such as eye disease, in particular corneal crystal deposition and its associated photophobia, still occur frequently, regardless of patient age and notwithstanding the increased implementation of systemic therapy. Ophthalmological assessment has not yet been standardized...

BACKGROUND: Orbital exenteration is a destructive procedure performed by removing all or part of the orbital contents along with entire eyeball. It is a procedure reserved for life threatening malignancies and some nonmalignant disorders which are not controlled by conservative management. METHODS: This is a retrospective study done on patients who underwent orbital exenteration at Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology from1 January 2006- 30 in December 2014. RESULTS: The mean age of patients was 30 years (range 1-78), with male preponderance of 15(55...

The study aimed to describe the specialized health services and to identify areas of greater difficulty of access to specialized consultations offered by SUS in small cities in the 18th Regional Health Area of Paraná State, Brazil, using case study methodology. The data were collected between January and April 2015. Managers, management teams and the board of directors of the CIS (Consórcio Intermunicipal de Saúde) were interviewed. The 21 studied specialist areas were rated like Sufficient Quota, Insufficient Quota, Inexistent Supply, and Assistance Gap...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Aasef G Shaikh, Fatema F Ghasia
PURPOSE: Fixational eye movements are of particular interest for three reasons. They are critical for preventing visual fading and enhancing visual perception; their disconjugacy allows scanning in three dimensions, and their neural correlates span through the cortico-striatal, striato-collicular and brainstem networks. Fixational eye movements are altered in various pediatric ophthalmologic and neurologic disorders. The goal of this study was to compare the dynamics of fixational eye movements in normal children and adults...

REVIEW
Michael C Brodsky
Clinical diagnosis has been supplemented by neuroimaging advances, genetic discoveries, and molecular research to generate new neurobiological discoveries pertaining to early maldevelopment of ocular motor control systems. In this focused review, I examine recent paradigm shifts that have transformed our understanding of pediatric ocular motor disease at the prenuclear and infranuclear levels. The pathogenesis of complex ocular motor disorders, such as paradoxical pupillary constriction to darkness, benign tonic upgaze of infancy, congenital fibrosis syndrome, and the constellation of unique eye movements that accompany Joubert syndrome, are elucidated...

JUSTIFICATION: Learning Disability (LD) in children is a well-recognized developmental disorder, which has profound academic and psychosocial consequences. Due to the complex nature of LD and multiple disadvantages posed to the child due to LD, a multidisciplinary approach towards intervention is warranted. Given the paucity of evidence-based standardized treatment approaches, consensus guidelines for management of LD are needed. PROCESS: The meeting on formulation of national consensus guidelines on neurodevelopmental disorders was organized by Indian Academy of Pediatrics in Mumbai, on 18th and 19th December, 2015...

We determine whether age is a prognostic factor for surgical outcomes of external dacryocystorhinostomy (Ex-DCR). This retrospective cohort study conducted at Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology (Kathmandu, Nepal) compared pediatric Ex-DCR procedures (age ≤ 15 years) to adult Ex-DCR procedures (age > 15 years) and was performed between January 2013 and December 2013, with a minimum follow-up period of 6 months. Primary outcome measure was rate of success, defined as complete resolution of subjective symptom(s) of epiphora (subjective success), combined with patent lacrimal passage on syringing (anatomical success) at last follow-up visit...
