Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a protozoan disease which is endemic in Iran. It is transmitted by the Phlebotomus sand fly. The eyelid is rarely involved possibly because the movement of the lids impedes the sand fly from biting the skin in this region. Here, we report 6 rare cases of eyelid CL. The patients were diagnosed by skin scraping, culture, and PCR from the lesions. Skin scraping examination showed Leishmania spp. amastigotes in the cytoplasm of macrophages. Culture examination was positive for Leishmania spp...

BACKGROUND: A hordeolum is a common, painful inflammation of the eyelid margin that is usually caused by a bacterial infection. The infection affects oil glands of the eyelid and can be either internal or external. In many cases, the lesion drains spontaneously and resolves without treatment; however, the inflammation can spread to other ocular glands or tissues, and recurrences are common. If unresolved, an acute internal hordeolum can become chronic, or can develop into a chalazion...

BACKGROUND: Conjunctival pyogenic granulomas are commonly seen after ocular surgeries or at an ocular wound site. The aim of this study is to describe a novel histological classification for medically uncontrolled conjunctival pyogenic granulomas (MUCPG), and to explore whether the diversity in clinical features correlates to different histological subtypes of MUCPG. METHODS: This is an observational cross-section case series. We reviewed 46 consecutive patients with conjunctival pyogenic granulomas who did not respond to topical corticosteroids and underwent surgical excision from January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2015...

Purpose. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between MGL and ocular symptoms, several systemic conditions, and key markers of ocular surface health. Methods. We included into the study 91 healthy volunteers between the ages of 20 and 77 years. We analyzed meibomian gland morphology, function, and lid margin alterations. We correlated our findings with self-reported ocular symptoms, systemic medical history, lifestyle factors, and tear film abnormalities. Results. We observed that a high ocular surface disease index, a history of either chalazion or hordeolum, experience of puffy eyelids upon waking, and foreign body sensation all appeared to be predictors of an abnormal meiboscore after adjusting for age and sex (p = 0...

PURPOSE: We report a case of atypical, extratarsal chalazion referred with a history of a chronic inflammatory mass found on the edge of the lower eyelid. METHODS: A 3-year-old female developed a small mass on the medial side of the right lower lid in 4-month duration. She was seen by her ophthalmologist and the diagnosis of a chalazion was made. Over the ensuing one month with warm compression, the lesion subsided and the new lesion appeared away from the edge on the lateral eyelid 3 months ago...

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...
