PURPOSE: V-pattern strabismus observed with syndromic craniosynostosis has been attributed to disparate causes. We compared severity of V pattern with degree of excyclorotation of rectus muscles to appraise significance of this proposed aetiology. METHODS: 43 patients with Apert, Crouzon or Pfeiffer syndrome referred to Boston Children's Hospital Department of Ophthalmology were identified. 28 met inclusion criteria for retrospective cohort study, specifically: (1) sensorimotor measurements in minimum of seven cardinal gazes, (2) quantified fundus torsion and (3) orbital CT imaging sufficient to measure rectus muscle cyclorotation in coronal and quasicoronal planes, posteriorly (near orbital apex) and anteriorly (near pulleys)...

Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a chronic and progressive multisystem autoimmune disease typically managed by rheumatologists. Diagnostic delays are common, due in large part to the non-specific and variable nature of SS symptoms and the slow progression of disease. The hallmark characteristics of SS are dry eye and dry mouth, but there are a broad range of other possible symptoms such as joint and muscle pain, skin rashes, chronic dry cough, vaginal dryness, extremity numbness or tingling, and disabling fatigue...

Morphology of the extraocular muscles plays an important role in many ophthalmological surgeries and diagnostic imaging studies. Detailed understanding of length, width, point of insertion and the relationships between these muscles could be of significance for successful surgical outcomes. Forty- six orbital contents were extracted from formaldehyde-embalmed cadavers. Dissection was performed to reveal the extraocular muscles from their origins to insertions on the sclera. Muscle length, muscle width, distance from point of insertion to the sclerocorneal limbus, relationship between the superior oblique and superior rectus and between the inferior oblique and lateral rectus were measured...

BACKGROUND: Localized scleroderma is a rare inflammatory skin disorder that affects the skin and sometimes underlying subcutaneous tissue, muscles or bones. The disease has two modes of onset: juvenile- (JLS) and adult-onset (aLoS). Clinical features have impact on diagnostic and treatment recommendations but no consensus on the disease management depending on the age at diagnosis was given. OBJECTIVE: To identify these features which differentiate aLoS from JLS...

We describe a rare case of a 31-year old woman with bilateral ptosis due to localized amyloidosis. She referred a nine-year history of ptosis and surgical treatment with frontalis suspension three years previously. Following complete ophthalmological examination and evaluation of the ptosis we carried out tarsal and fornix biopsy, which revealed accumulation of a weakly eosinophilic amyloid positive substance. We performed surgical correction using the levator aponeurosis-Müller's muscle complex re-adaptation technique and amyloid substance debulking in all the palpebral layers in the left eye...

REVIEW
Emel Başar, Ceyhun Arıcı
Botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) is the first biological toxin used in the treatment of ophthalmic diseases and to decrease skin wrinkles as an aesthetic agent. When used appropriately, it weakens the force of muscular contraction and/or inhibits glandular secretion. The most common areas for botulinum toxin treatment are the upper face, including the glabella, forehead, brows, and lateral canthal lines, or crow's feet. By relaxing the muscles causing wrinkles, non-permanent results may be achieved with its use...

Primary orthostatic tremor is a rare neurological disease characterized mainly by a high frequency tremor of the legs while standing. The aim of this study was to identify the common core structures of the oscillatory circuit in orthostatic tremor and how it is modulated by changes of body position. Ten patients with orthostatic tremor and 10 healthy age-matched control subjects underwent a standardized neurological and neuro-ophthalmological examination including electromyographic and posturographic recordings...

Margo S Clarke, Alexandre Plouznikoff, Jean Deschenes
In ophthalmology, inflammatory diseases target different highly specific regions within the small confine of the orbit. Some entities even prefer a particular location or depth within the same tissue (ex. anterior, intermediate or posterior uveitides, chorioretinitides with unique topographic presentations). Though the location of a lesion strongly influences and helps us in our differential diagnosis, we still don't understand why specific anatomic sites are susceptible to a disease while other areas are spared...

Jinyong Cho, Jaeyoung Ryu
Blow-in fracture of the zygomaticomaxillary complex that was displaced into the orbital cavity could be associated with ophthalmologic injuries, ranging from visual acuity to ocular motility limitation. Appropriate reduction and realignment of the fractured bone is necessary as early as possible for recovery of function and esthetics. However, limitation of accessibility and visibility makes it difficult for delicate surgery and increases the risk of damage of adjacent anatomic structures, such as optic nerve and extraocular muscles...

The aim of this study was to determine the predictive value of a specific computed tomography (CT)-based assessment for the final functional ophthalmological outcome in pure orbital floor blowout fractures. Data of 34 consecutive patients with pure blowout fractures who had undergone a period of at least 6 months of medical and ophthalmological follow-up were analyzed. The following 3 CT scan-based parameters were included: area ratio of the fractured orbital floor (RF), maximum height of periorbital tissue herniation (MH), and a 4-grade muscular subscore (MSS) describing the inferior rectus muscle displacement relative to the orbital floor level...

Yair Ivanir, Jonathan D Trobe
BACKGROUND: Isolated fourth nerve palsies are commonly caused by decompensation of a congenitally dysfunctional superior oblique muscle ("decompensated congenital palsies"). Distinguishing such palsies at initial presentation from palsies caused by presumed microvascular ischemia ("ischemic palsies") has value for patient reassurance and in forestalling ancillary testing. Abnormally large vertical fusional amplitudes traditionally have been used to identify decompensated congenital palsies, but that may not be a reliable distinguishing feature...
