BACKGROUND: Paranasal sinus lymphoma is a rare clinical entity. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective case series of 68 patients with biopsy-confirmed paranasal sinus lymphoma with attention on systemic disease association. RESULTS: Of 63 patients with paranasal sinus lymphoma, 35 (56%) had systemic involvement. Four patient groups were identified: (1) primary paranasal sinus lymphoma (44%); (2) systemic disease occurring concurrently with paranasal sinus lymphoma (25%); (3) paranasal sinus lymphoma with relapse of preexisting systemic lymphoma (22%); and (4) progression to systemic disease after primary paranasal sinus lymphoma (8%)...

Cutaneous horns uncommonly involve the periocular region. Involvement of the ocular surface is particularly rare. The authors present a patient who underwent a perinatal buccal mucosal graft for corneal perforation due to congenital corneal ectasia, most likely resulting from Peters anomaly. She developed a giant ocular horn 10 years later.

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) has been utilized for cutaneous melanoma and other malignancies arising from the eye and ocular adnexa. Currently, SLNB requires blue dyes and/or radiopharmaceuticals; both of which have significant shortcomings. This study sought to evaluate the feasibility of SLNB with the use of real-time, contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) as an alternative technique for tumors arising in the conjunctiva. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective feasibility study in a porcine model...

Thyroid-associated orbitopathy (TAO) is a diverse spectrum of signs and symptoms that appears to have immunologic and pathologic causative factors as diverse as its clinical presentations. Lymphocytes, hormones, and cytokines affect orbital fibroblasts and other similar cells, which exert their effects on orbital tissues, including the extraocular muscles, orbital fat, and optic nerve. This complicated inflammatory cascade and the myriad of clinical findings that result contributes to the active phase of TAO...

PURPOSE: To determine whether higher order wavefront aberrations or a combination of topography and wavefront variables distinguishes between early and suspected keratoconus. METHODS: This prospective comparative study evaluated 70 eyes using videokeratography (Tomey TMS-1) and aberrometry (Alcon LADARWave). Videokeratography and clinical evaluation were used to divide the eyes into three groups: 50 normal eyes, 10 eyes with early keratoconus, and 10 eyes with suspected keratoconus...

Autosomal recessive Weissenbacher-Zweymuller syndrome (WZS) is a skeletal dysplasia characterized by rhizomelic dwarfism and severe hearing loss. Mutations in the COL11A2 gene have been implicated in causing the autosomal dominant form of this syndrome as well as non-ocular Stickler syndrome and the autosomal recessive syndrome otospondylomegaepiphyseal dysplasia (OSMED). In a consanguineous Bedouin tribe living in Southern Israel, five individuals affected by autosomal recessive WZS were available for genetic analysis...

The systemic mucopolysaccharidoses are complex syndromes, which may include corneal clouding as a mechanism leading to decreased vision and hence decreased quality of life. This study presents three young adult patients with mucopolysaccharidoses in order to compare their visual status through retrospective chart review, including patient and guardian interview, history, and examination, including a modified form of the VF-14 questionnaire (visual function with 14 questions). When the visual acuity and VF-14 results of the three patients were compared, the results of the VF-14 correlated with the patients" visual acuity status...

PURPOSE: Weissenbacher-Zweymuller syndrome (WZS) is an autosomal recessive disorder of delayed skeletal maturation. Its characteristic features include rhizomelic dwarfism with metaphyseal and vertebral changes. It has been challenged whether WZS is a part of the spectrum of Stickler syndrome. We report ocular findings in the largest ever-presented series of patients with WZS. METHODS: Patients underwent a paediatric examination, including assessment of growth and development, genetic work-up and X-ray of vertebra and long bones...

To demonstrate a granulomatous reaction to silicone buckel thirteen years after retinal detachment surgery. We report on a 71-year-old man who developed a 360 degrees of epibulbar granulation tissue due to silicone circle buckel. The granulation tissue was demonstrated by a computer tomography and histologically. A granulomatous reaction to silicone circle buckel can be found many years from the first operation. Biopsy is always necessary to establish a definitive diagnosis. Treatment of 360 degrees of epibulbar granulation tissue causing ocular dysfunction is by surgical excision...
