An infantpresented with right upper eyelid ptosis and was subsequently diagnosed with acquired Horner syndrome. Further evaluation revealed a right-sided cervicothoracic lymphatic malformation. At 13 weeks of age, the child underwent percutaneous intracystic sclerotherapy with a mixture of sodium tetradecyl sulphate and ethanol. Twenty-one weeks after initial treatment, ophthalmic examination showed complete resolution of the blepharoptosis and pupillary miosis. Percutaneous sclerotherapy not only effectively treated the space-occupying lymphatic malformation but also reversed the Horner syndrome that was presumably induced by neural tension (more likely) or compression...

Touraine-Solente-Gole syndrome, also known as Pachydermoperiostosis (PDP) or Primary Hypertrophic Osteoarthropathy, is a rare hereditary disorder, which affects both bones and skin. It is characterized by a combination of dermatologic changes (pachydermia or thickening of the skin) and rheumatologic manifestations (periostosis and finger clubbing). Eyelid ptosis which is caused by thickened eyelids (blepharoptosis) is a less common symptom. We report the case of a patient with a complete form of Touraine-Solente-Gole syndrome with bilateral blepharoptosis as presenting feature...

The patient was a 54-year-old woman, who died of chronic cardiac insufficiency after a clinical course of 2 years and 4 months. She had complained of myalgia, muscle weakness, and blepharoptosis before the onset of cardiac symptoms, but there was no evidence of myasthenia gravis or collagen-vascular diseases. At autopsy, the heart (280 g) showed marked dilatation of the four chambers and thinning of the ventricular walls. Diffuse and intense lymphocytic infiltration and extensive fibrosis were noted, with the latter being accentuated in the subendocardial and subepicardial zones...
