Pleomorphic dermal sarcoma (PDS) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm sharing histopathological features with atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX), but has additional features of deep invasion of the superficial subcutis, tumor necrosis and vascular/perineural invasion. It is not well documented in the literature because of its rarity, and its clinical course has been debated due to the lack of homogenous criteria. We describe here the case of a 91-year-old female with a 6-month history of a solitary, asymptomatic, well-defined, 3...

Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs) are benign, spindle-cell tumors of mesenchymal origin that are usually seen in the superior orbital area in adults. We report a rare case of SFT in the lacrimal gland fossa that developed in a young female. A 25-year-old woman had a 6-month history of a progressive painless mass in the left upper eyelid accompanied by proptosis. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed an ovoid, demarcated mass with distinct margins in the lacrimal gland region without bone invasion...

OBJECTIVE: : to compare the accuracy of preoperative 2-mm punch biopsy at one site and at two sites in the diagnosis of aggressive subtypes of eyelid basal cell carcinoma (BCC). METHODS: : we randomly assigned patients to Group 1 (biopsy at one site) and Group 2 (biopsy at two sites). We compared the biopsy results to the gold standard (pathology of the surgical specimen). We calculated the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, accuracy and Kappa coefficient to determine the level of agreement in both groups...

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is fast emerging as an additional non-interventional modality for skin tumor detection and diagnosis. A master/slave flying spot OCT configuration was assembled to detect periocular basal cell carcinomas (BCC). A swept source at 1300 nm and sweeping speed of 50 kHz were used. A three-step process was involved. First, 384 channeled spectra using a mirror were stored for 384 optical path differences at the master stage. Then, the stored channeled spectra (masks) were correlated with the channeled spectrum from the BCC tissue to produce 384 en face OCT images (200×200 pixels) for the optical path difference values used to acquire the masks...

AIM: In the contemporary medicine, strong emphasis is put on early closing of body surface defects, which contributes to good and early healing, but, of course, closes the entrance gate for possible infection as well. The easiest closing of the defect is the direct suture of the emerged wound. But some defects are of such an extent, so their closure is necessary to handle other way than simple suture, e.g. by rotating flap plastic surgery. In the paper are evaluated results of flap surgery technique in 56 patients...

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...

An 18-months-old male infant presented with a rapidly growing tumor on the right upper eyelid. Orbital computed tomography (CT) revealed a large, well-circumscribed mass with low density signal in the right upper eyelid. Magnetic resonance images (MRI) showed a lesion of mixed T1-signal intensity and high signal intensity in T2-weighted images. The tumor was treated by simple anterior orbitotomy with excisional biopsy, and the diagnosis of fibrolipoma was made by histopathologic examination. There was no evidence of tumor at the four-year follow-up...

INTRODUCTION: Myasthenia gravis (MG) has been reported to correlate with earlier-stage thymoma, and theoretically does not accompany thymic carcinoma. However, we encountered two cases of thymic carcinoma with MG. PRESENTATION OF CASES: Case 1 involved a 54-year-old man who had been diagnosed with MG based on symptoms and detection of anti-acetylcholine receptor antibody (ARAB). Computed tomography (CT) revealed an anterior mediastinal tumor 30mm in diameter. Prednisolone (PSL) and tacrolimus were administered without surgery at that time...

PURPOSE: Mastocytosis is characterized by clonal mast cell proliferation with accumulation within various organs and uncontrolled activation with excessive mast cell mediator release. Ocular manifestations have rarely been published. We describe a 63-year-old man with bilateral exophthalmos that led to the diagnosis of systemic mastocytosis. CASE REPORT: A patient presented with bilateral eyelid edema with exophthalmos associated with binocular diplopia. Ophthalmologic examination showed bilateral axial, symmetrical, and painless exophthalmos with eyelid edema, and limitation in elevation of the right eye...

Ectopic lacrimal gland, being one of the choristomas, is comprised of lacrimal gland tissue outside the lacrimal gland fossa in the fronto-lateral part of the orbital roof. Ectopic lacrimal gland is a rare condition where the gland may be found in the orbit, eyelids, ocular adnexa or within the globe. Neoplastic transformation of such tissue may occur. A sixty-two-year old male patient presented with right eye proptosis and slight nasal displacement of the globe. Computerized tomography scan revealed a well-defined hypodense lesion of size 19 x 18 x 20 mm supero-lateral to lateral rectus muscle, with mild proptosis and thinning of the right lateral orbital wall...

Exposure keratopathy may result in ocular surface dryness, pain, corneal ulceration and loss of vision. Upper eyelid loading is an effective surgical treatment for paralytic lagophthalmos but has been criticised for complications of implant exposure and poor cosmesis. We therefore reviewed the safety and efficacy of our technique of upper eyelid post-septal loading for exposure keratopathy in this context. A retrospective case notes analysis was undertaken of 38 patients who had upper eyelid loading, all with post-septal weight placement, for correction of lagophthalmos...

Large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) is an uncommon and aggressive neuroendocrine tumor, found mainly in the lung. Although LCNEC has been reported in various organs, LCNEC of the skin is extremely rare, poorly recognized and probably underestimated. Here we report a case of LCNEC of the skin, focusing on the histopathological and ultrastructural findings in detail. The patient was an 85-year-old Japanese woman presented with a mass on her right upper eyelid. Biopsy specimen showed an infiltrative mass with extension into the subcutis...
