Patients with infection or inflammation of the eyelid will often first present to their primary care physicians with symptoms such as redness, swelling, tearing, itchiness, or a foreign body sensation. There are a variety of conditions that affect the eyelid which can cause such symptoms, and the exam and history can help a provider differentiate some of the more common conditions. This article will provide a comprehensive review of the background, diagnosis and management of dry eye disease, chalazion, hordeolum (stye), and preseptal cellulitis. Read More

A Case of Recurrent Chalazia Associated with Subclinical Hypothyroidism.

Case Rep Ophthalmol 2020 May-Aug;11(2):212-216. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

Department of Physiology, Faculty of Medical Science, Anton de Kom University of Suriname, Paramaribo, Suriname.

Chalazia are chronic inflammatory disorders of the Meibomian glands of the eyelids that can present at any age. Although the exact cause is still obscure, they are often associated with retention of lipids in these sebaceous glands, infections, or disturbances in the balance of sex hormones. The complications of the disease may vary from little discomfort to reduced vision. Read More

Primary mucinous carcinoma of the skin arising from the upper eyelid: A case report and literature review.

JPRAS Open 2020 Sep 18;25:18-23. Epub 2020 May 18.

Nagaoka Red Cross Hospital, Department of Plastic Surgery, Senshu-2 297-1, Nagaoka City, Niigata, 9402085, Japan.

Primary mucinous carcinoma of the skin (PMCS) is a rare malignant neoplasm of the sweat glands that has an incidence of 1 per 150,000 population. Because of the lack of typical characteristics, it is often misdiagnosed as an epidermoid cyst, pilomatrixoma, or chalazion before resection, with subsequent enucleation performed unintentionally. We present a case of a 51-year-old patient with PMCS in the upper eyelid that was successfully treated at our hospital. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, National Taiwan University Hospital, No 7, Chung-Shan S. Rd, Taipei 100, Taiwan.

Background: Epibulbar complex choristoma, a rare congenital epibulbar tumor, has many diverse forms. Reviewing the literature, it can present clinically as either a circumferential or isolated epibulbar mass, limbal tumor, lateral canthal mass, aggregate of ectopic cilia in the upper eyelid, eyelid mass mimicking chalazion, or lacrimal caruncle mass. The management depends on the extent of involvement, the risk of amblyopia, and cosmetic concerns. Read More

Evaluation of diagnosed cases of eye rhinosporidiosis in a public hospital of Maranhão, Northeast Brazil.

BMC Ophthalmol 2019 Nov 8;19(1):218. Epub 2019 Nov 8.

Department of Pathology, Ribeirão Preto Medical School, University of São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil.

Background: Oculosporidiosis (ocular rhinosporidiosis) accounts for 15% of cases of rhinosporidiosis, which is a chronic granulomatous disease and is endemic in India and Sri Lanka. In Brazil, the climatic and hydrographic similarities to these endemic areas and the presence of riverside populations contributes to an increase in the incidence of rhinosporidiosis particularly in the State of Maranhão. This study, therefore, aimed to identify the number of diagnosed cases of oculosporidiosis and describe its the clinical epidemiology, laboratory, histopathology, and therapeutic characteristics.

Department of Dermatology, Hadassah Medical Center, The Faculty of Medicine, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Israel.

Heterozygous STAT1 gain-of-function (GOF) mutations result in a combined form of immunodeficiency which is the most common genetic cause of chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis (CMC). We present a pedigree with a GOF mutation in STAT1, manifesting with chronic demodicosis in the form of a facial papulopustular eruption, blepharitis, and chalazion. So far, demodicosis has been described in only one family with STAT1-GOF mutation. Read More

Subcutaneous tranexamic acid in upper eyelid blepharoplasty: a prospective randomized pilot study.

Can J Ophthalmol 2018 12 27;53(6):600-604. Epub 2018 Mar 27.

Mohs Unit, Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, affiliated to the Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel.

Objective: Postoperative ecchymoses or hematomas can prolong healing from surgery, and a search for locally administered agents that decrease bleeding is warranted. The objective of this study is to evaluate whether preoperative subcutaneous injection of tranexamic acid (TXA) reduces intra- and postoperative bleeding or ecchymoses in skin-only upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery.

Design: This is a prospective randomized, double-blind, controlled study. Read More

Histopathological Study on the Proposed Pathogenesis of Intratarsal Keratinous Cysts.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jul/Aug;35(4):365-368

Pathology, University of Ottawa, The Ottawa Hospital, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Purpose: Intratarsal keratinous cysts (IKCs) are a recently described entity that is frequently misdiagnosed clinically as chalazia and mislabeled in the literature as "intratarsal epidermal inclusion cysts" or "epidermoid cysts." It is important to accurately diagnose IKCs and distinguish them from chalazia because IKCs require a complete surgical excision and can exhibit multiple recurrences following curettage. The authors performed a retrospective case series to further elucidate the pathogenesis of IKCs and to determine the diagnostically optimal panel of stains for diagnosis. Read More

Case Rep Ophthalmol 2018 Sep-Dec;9(3):416-420. Epub 2018 Sep 3.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, Florida, USA.

We report a case of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) that developed 1 month after an intralesional injection of triamcinolone acetonide that was administered during removal of a chalazion. The subretinal fluid and ipsilateral visual acuity (VA) worsened with initial observation. The edema resolved with verteporfin photodynamic therapy (PDT) 1 month after diagnosis, but VA did not improve during short-term follow-up. Read More

Division of Orbital and Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery, Stein Eye Institute, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to explore mechanical and co-innervational factors involved in both voluntary and involuntary brow elevation among people affected by ptosis and dermatochalasis.

Methods: In this prospective cohort study of normal controls and eyelids with ptosis or dermatochalasis, marginal reflex distance (MRD1) and brow height were measured under the following conditions: neutral position, involuntary mechanical brow elevation, voluntary brow elevation, and maximal eyelid opening. The primary outcome measure was change in MRD1. Read More
