PURPOSE: To report the diagnoses of lesions initially misdiagnosed as ocular melanoma. METHODS: This retrospective study included all new patients who were referred with a presumptive diagnosis of choroidal melanoma to the ocular oncology clinic at Farabi Eye Hospital from January 2009 to December 2012. Each patient underwent a full ocular examination and B-scan ultrasonography by an ocular oncologist. The final diagnosis was made based on a combination of clinical features, fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, optical coherence tomography, neuroimaging and biopsy when necessary...

AIM: To report the clinical outcomes of utilizing a three-layer flap and graft in reconstruction of the lower lid in one session. METHODS: Seventeen patients with total or near total lower eyelid defect were included. The defects were reconstructed in three layers. Posterior lamella was reconstructed by using tarsoconjunctival free graft from the ipsilateral upper lid and periosteal flap from lateral orbital rim. Mobilization of residual orbicularis muscle provided a rich blood supply; and the anterior lamella was reconstructed by skin flap prepared from upper lid blepharoplasty as a one-pedicular or bipedicular bucket handle flap...

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a hereditary disease, characterized by chronic pulmonary disease, pancreatic insufficiency and abnormal electrolytes in the sweat. In order to evaluate the clinical manifestations and laboratory findings of Iranian children with CF during a 10-year period, 243 CF patients, with a median age of 5 months, were investigated in this study. The most common manifestations were gastrointestinal disorders and respiratory manifestations. Cough was the most common symptom, followed by malnutrition, diarrhea, respiratory distress, and vomiting...

Congenital choledochal cyst is malformation of the biliary ductal system, which rarely occur. We describe here a 4-month old boy, who was referred to our center with respiratory distress and low level consciousness. In physical examination, a mass was detected in right upper quadrant of abdomen. Sonographic examination indicated a cystic structure representing the choledochal cyst. Further evaluation confirmed the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis in this patient. Although choledochal cyst is considered as a rare disease, it is the most frequent malformation of the extrahepatic biliary ducts, which easily could be misdiagnosed...
