PURPOSE: To present clinical findings of a 28-year-old woman with multifocal surgically induced necrotizing scleritis following uncomplicated strabismus surgery. METHOD: A 28-year-old woman underwent uncomplicated strabismus surgery of her right eye for sensory exotropia under general anesthesia (6 mm right medial rectus muscle resection and 8 mm right lateral rectus muscle recession). DESIGN: Retrospective, observational case report and literature review...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the rate of and predictive factors for successful treatment of restrictive myopathy in thyroid-associated orbitopathy (TAO) using botulinum toxin injection. METHODS: Twenty patients with restrictive myopathy of TAO were enrolled in the study. Abnormal thyroid function test results were not a prerequisite for inclusion. In each extraocular muscle 25 units of botulinum toxinA were injected. The success rate, calculated at 2 years or last follow-up before surgery, was defined as proportion of the cases with esotropia of <10(Δ), vertical deviation of <5(Δ), and no diplopia in primary position and downgaze for at least 1 year...

BACKGROUND: Two types of popular scleral tunnel sutures in the manual small incision cataract surgery (MSICS) are horizontal and X-pattern sutures. Surgically induced corneal astigmatism (SIA) is a useful indicator of the suturing effect. AIMS: To compare SIA between horizontal and X-pattern sutures in the scleral tunnel incisions for MSICS. DESIGN: Prospective, nonrandomized comparative trial. MATERIALS AND METHODS: After superior scleral tunnel incision and capsulorhexis, the nucleus was prolapsed into the anterior chamber and delivered...

PURPOSE: To develop a Persian version of the Adult Strabismus Questionnaire (AS-20) and use the new questionnaire to evaluate the effect of strabismus surgery on health-related quality of life (HRQOL). METHODS: The Persian version of the AS-20 was developed with the help of Beaton and colleagues' guidelines. The reliability of the final version was tested with the test-retest and internal consistency methods. The construct and criterion (concurrent) validity were also tested for the questionnaire...

PURPOSE: To compare the laboratory data and changes in these data between patients with MAS and patients with flare-up of the autoimmune diseases. METHODS: In a prospective study, the static laboratory data and dynamic changes in the selected data in 17 consecutive patients with MAS and 53 patients with active disease of SJIA, PJIA, Kawasaki disease, and SLE were compared. The ROC curve analysis was used to evaluate cut-off points, sensitivity, and specificity of the static and dynamic laboratory data to differentiate between MAS and active disease...

PURPOSE: The purpose was to describe the medial rectus muscle elongation (MRE) procedure to treat very large-angle esotropia (ET) with surgery on a lower number of muscles. METHODS: Twenty patients with very large-angle ET (more than 70 PD) underwent the MRE procedure. In the MRE procedure, the muscle was split longitudinally into three parts. The wider central part was sutured with 6/0 vicryl and disinserted. The distal end of the peripheral parts (still attached to the original insertion), 7-9 mm away from the insertion, was sutured to the proximal end of the central part...

PURPOSE: To assess the efficacy of botulinum toxin (Novotox) injection in patients with cerebral palsy (CP) and esotropia. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In a non-comparative, prospective interventional case series botulinum toxin injection was done in 44 patients with CP and esotropia. A single dose of botulinum toxin was injected in both medial rectus muscles of all patients and was repeated in 12 patients. Angle of deviation within 10 prism diopters (PD) of orthotropia was defined as a successful outcome...

BACKGROUND: Neonatal lupus erythematosus (NLE) is a transient autoimmune disease of developing fetus and neonate in mothers with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). In this report we introduce an infant with NLE whose mother had rheumatoid arthritis. CASE PRESENTATION: Our case was a 40 day old male infant with discoid-like and annular skin lesions over forehead and neck, irritability and low grade fever. There was a history of prematurity due to preeclampsia. There was no cytopenia or cardiac involvement but liver enzymes were more than 5-fold increased...

PURPOSE: To compare the effect of adding recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) to intravenous methylprednisolone for the treatment of unilateral acute optic neuritis of unknown or demyelinative origin on the logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution (logMAR), perimetric variables [mean deviation (MD) and pattern standard deviation (PSD)], and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS: Thirty patients (15 patients in each group) diagnosed with unilateral acute optic neuritis of unknown or demyelinative origin were included...

PURPOSE: To report the effectiveness of incorporating a central tenectomy on the recessed rectus muscles when treating large-angle horizontal deviations. METHODS: Patients undergoing recession and central tenectomy from March 2010 to January 2013 were prospectively enrolled. The procedure entails making two longitudinal incisions, each 4 mm, on the muscle adjacent to sutures made during the recession procedure. With recession complete and muscle sutured to the sclera, the central flap (with approximately one-third of the insertion width) is excised...

PURPOSE: To report 3 cases of cherubism, one of whom underwent surgery for orbital manifestations, and to provide a literature review. CASE REPORTS: Our patients were normal at birth and developed painless enlarging of the cheeks and jaws when they were 4-5 years old. Ophthalmologic examinations showed mild proptosis, superior globe displacement and inferior scleral show in all cases. Cases 2 and 3 had lower lid skin discoloration. Computed tomography (CT) scans demonstrated bilateral multicystic lesions in the maxilla and mandible with cortical thinning in all cases...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the prevalence of amblyopia risk factors in children that underwent probing for persistent congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO). METHODS: The medical records of children with CNLDO (after 1 year of age) that underwent probing were reviewed. Amblyopia risk factors, based on the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus referral criteria in 2013, were sought in the patientsʹ records before probing. The proportion of the patients with anisometropia >1...

PURPOSE: To describe clinical features of patients with unilateral isolated inferior rectus (IR) muscle paralysis along with type of surgical treatment and results after surgery. METHODS: Patients diagnosed with unilateral isolated IR muscle palsy between 2009 and 2012 that required surgical treatment were included in the study. Diagnosis of IR muscle palsy was done by hypertropia with the largest angle in depression and abduction and inferior rectus muscle underaction...
