A 14-year-old girl developed a large, asymptomatic lump on the right lower eyelid a few weeks after chalazion excision. MRI showed a very large, elliptical, postseptal lesion 1.8 × 14.1 × 21.2 mm which intensified homogeneously with gadolinium. The patient underwent orbital biopsy of the lesion using a swinging eyelid approach. A dense, solid, nondraining encapsulated lesion was palpated and separated from the surrounding tissue. Histopathologic diagnosis was a granulomatous chalazion.

PURPOSE: To present a rare case of a conjunctival hypertrophic scar presenting as eyelid mass after surgical treatment of a chalazion. CASE PRESENTATION: A 74-year-old man visited our clinic with severe ocular discomfort and excessive lacrimation since several months in his left eye accompanied by itching of the upper eyelid. Examination of the anterior segment revealed a 6 mm (horizontal) × 8 mm (vertical) round, immobile, hard, mushroom-shaped protruding mass on the tarsal conjunctiva of his left eye...

PURPOSE: To describe clinical presentation and histopathological features of a nodulo-ulcerative variant of ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN). METHODS: Retrospective study. RESULTS: Six patients were identified with a nodulo-ulcerative variant of OSSN. Mean age at presentation was 56 years. One patient was immunosuppressed because of human immunodeficiency virus infection. The initial misdiagnosis was necrotizing scleritis/sclerokeratitis (n = 4), intraepithelial neoplasia (n = 1), and chalazion (n = 1)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of chronic suppurative lacrimal canaliculitis treatment using chalazion forceps. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective study was performed on consecutive patients who accepted the aid of chalazion forceps to treat chronic suppurative lacrimal canaliculitis. Two different treatment methods using chalazion forceps were performed according to the degree of lacrimal canaliculitis. Postoperatively, the patients received 0...

Merkel cell carcinoma of the eyelid is an aggressive, highly malignant tumor of the skin. Totaling approximately 0.5 % of all tumors of the eyelid, it constitutes a relatively small group of lid tumors. Nevertheless Merkel cell carcinoma is of significance to the ophthalmologist. Because of its clinical presentation it can be easily confused as a chalazion, a hordeolum or the lesser aggressive basal cell carcinoma. This often leads to delayed treatment. In this article we describe clinical aspects, which aim to help the ophthalmologist suspect Merkel cell carcinoma earlier...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the meibomian gland function, morphology and the related medical history of patients with blepharokeratoconjunctivitis (BKC) in comparison with healthy population and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD)-induced evaporative dry eye (EDE) patients. METHODS: Twenty-two eyes of 22 Asian adult patients with BKC were enrolled as the BKC group. Healthy volunteers and MGD-induced EDE patients were recruited in a 1:1 ratio and were matched in age, and the gender compositions of the three groups were also comparable...

Malignant tumours of the face are usually seen in the periocular region, mainly on eyelids most commonly in the inferior eyelid, medial canthus and superior eyelid, respectively. The prime treatment for eyelid malignant tumours is the total excision of the lesion with frozen section control or by Mohs Micrographic surgery. The postoperative defects should be reconstructed judicially taking care that the near normal anatomical and functional recovery is achieved. The Cutler-Beard flap procedure, a good alternative in the reconstruction of superior near-total eyelid defects resulted in good restoration of anatomy and function in our patient...

PURPOSE: To present the clinical features of the eyelid nodules observed in a newly determined dermatologic disorder, idiopathic facial aseptic granuloma (IFAG), and to compare them with children having acute hordeolum and chalazion. METHODS: Duration of the lesion, localization, presence of coexisting facial nodules, management strategies, and response time to topical/oral antibiotics were retrospectively reviewed in 50 children with IFAG, acute hordeolum, or chalazion...

We report an asystolic event in an 8-year-old girl under general anesthesia that occurred after bupivicaine was injected into the eyelid during routine chalazion incision and drainage surgery. Because the bupivacaine was injected directly into the subcuticular space and not intravascularly, we concluded that the patient's asystolic event was induced by an oculocardiac reflex.

We report the case of a 15-month-old boy who presented with a mass lesion of the right upper eyelid that had been present since birth and had slowly enlarged over the last 3 months. The lesion had minimal surrounding erythema simulating the appearance of a chalazion. Intraoperatively the lesion was noted to be firmly adherent to the underlying tarsus. The lesion was excised completely through an eyelid crease approach leaving the tarsus intact. The histopathology was consistent with dermoid cyst. To our knowledge, this is the third case of a tarsal dermoid cyst reported in the literature...

Primary cutaneous adenoid cystic carcinoma (PCACC) is a rare malignant epithelial tumor most commonly observed in the scalp and skin of the chest and originating from the palpebral portion of the lacrimal gland in the orbit. Here we describe the diagnosis and treatment of a rare case of PCACC in an eye of a 52-year-old male. The patient presented with a mass lesion of the right lower eyelid. During incisional biopsy, lack of encapsulation and a secretion pattern different to that of chalazion was observed, which differentiated the lesion from chalazion...

The aim of the study was to investigate the presence of Demodex in the hair follicles of eyelashes and their potential participation in the aetiology of chalazion in patients in Poland. The study of the correlation between the presence of Demodex spp. and chalazion has never been performed in patients in Europe. There is, therefore, a justified necessity to check whether Demodex mites can be a potential risk factor in the development of chalazion in the European population. The samples were examined by light microscope, using standard parasitological methods...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the distribution of meibomian gland dropout and analyze the correlation between dropout and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). METHODS: A total of 161 eyes of 85 patients with MGD were recruited as the MGD group; 88 eyes of 46 health volunteers were enrolled as the control group (2:1 matched for age and sex). Examinations included the Schirmer I test, breakup time, symptom questionnaire, corneal fluorescein staining, meibum quality, meibomian gland expressibility, and meibomian gland dropout...

The swollen red eyelid is a common presentation in primary care. An understanding of the anatomy of the orbital region can guide care. Factors that guide diagnosis and urgency of care include acute vs. subacute onset of symptoms, presence or absence of pain, identifiable mass within the eyelid vs. diffuse lid swelling, and identification of vision change or ophthalmoplegia. Superficial skin processes presenting with swollen red eyelid include vesicles of herpes zoster ophthalmicus; erythematous irritation of contact dermatitis; raised, dry plaques of atopic dermatitis; and skin changes of malignancies, such as basal or squamous cell carcinoma...
