Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Section of Oral and Maxillofacial Oncology, Division of Maxillofacial Diagnostic and Surgical Sciences, Faculty of Dental Science, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan.

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD), recognized only recently as a single diagnostic entity, is a chronic inflammatory condition of unknown etiology. The diagnosis of IgG4-RD relies heavily on histopathological analysis and the correlation of histology findings with clinical, serological, and radiological data. CD4 T and B cells, including IgG4-expressing plasmablasts, constitute the major inflammatory cell populations in IgG4-RD and are believed to cause organ damage and tissue fibrosis. Read More

J Control Release 2018 Dec 23;292:183-195. Epub 2018 Oct 23.

Department of Pharmacology and Pharmaceutical Sciences, School of Pharmacy, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, United States; Department of Ophthalmology, Roski Eye Institute, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, United States; Department of Biomedical Engineering, Viterbi School of Engineering, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, United States. Electronic address:

As a potent macrolide immunosuppressant, cyclosporine A (CsA) is used to treat multiple autoimmune diseases, including non-autoimmune and autoimmune-mediated dry eye disease, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis. Despite its potency, CsA has poor solubility, poor bioavailability, and can cause serious adverse reactions such as nephrotoxicity and neurotoxicity. To overcome these limitations, we invented a new strategy to carry CsA by fusing its cognate human receptor, cyclophilin A (CypA), to a 73 kDa elastin-like polypeptide (ELP) termed A192 using recombinant protein expression.

Stead Family Department of Pediatrics, Carver College of Medicine, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA.

Nonobese diabetic (NOD) mice spontaneously develop lacrimal and salivary gland autoimmunity similar to human Sjögren syndrome. In both humans and NOD mice, the early immune response that drives T-cell infiltration into lacrimal and salivary glands is poorly understood. In NOD mice, lacrimal gland autoimmunity spontaneously occurs only in males with testosterone playing a role in promoting lacrimal gland inflammation, while female lacrimal glands are protected by regulatory T cells (Tregs).

Acute lacrimal gland swelling with intracranial extension and without any neurological features - A rare case report.

Saudi J Ophthalmol 2018 Jul-Sep;32(3):253-256. Epub 2017 Dec 24.

HIMSR, New Delhi, India.

We report a case of young adult female with swelling in the superolateral aspect of left orbit for two weeks which was diagnosed as tubercular dacryoadenitis with intracranial extension without any neurological features. Tubercular dacryoadenitis is very rare but still makes an important differential diagnosis of lacrimal gland swellings especially in endemic areas like India. Few cases of tubercular dacryoadenitis have been reported in the past; but not a single case with intracranial extension in young adults with short history and without neurological symptoms.

The male Non-Obese Diabetic (NOD) mouse is an established model of autoimmune dacryoadenitis characteristic of Sjögren's Syndrome (SS), but development of diabetes may complicate studies. The Non-Obese Diabetes Resistant (NOR) mouse is a MHC-II matched diabetes-resistant alternative, but development of autoimmune dacryoadenitis is not well-characterized. We compare features of SS in male NOD and NOR mice at 12 and 20 weeks. Read More

Acute dacryocystitis complicated by orbital cellulitis and loss of vision: A case report and review of the literature.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2018 9;50:130-134. Epub 2018 Aug 9.

Department of Ophthalmology, College of Medicine, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Introduction: Acute dacryocystitis usually presents as a pre-septal cellulitis since the lacrimal sac lies anterior to the orbital septum. Orbital cellulitis secondary to acute dacryocystitis is very rare due to a variety of anatomic barriers to the orbit but can occur and result in abscess formation with risk of visual compromise.

Presentation Of Case: We describe a case of otherwise healthy adult who presented with complete visual loss following orbital cellulitis and abscess formation secondary to acute dacryocystitis. Read More

Coronary Artery Aneurysms Presenting as Acute Coronary Syndrome: An Unusual Case of IgG4-Related Disease Vascular Involvement.

Can J Cardiol 2018 Aug 2;34(8):1088.e7-1088.e10. Epub 2018 May 2.

Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Sciences, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli, Rome, Italy.

We report the case of a 65-year-old man referred to our department because of a complex coronary aneurysmal disease presenting as subacute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction due to intraluminal thromboembolism. The patient's past medical history (recurrent episodes of lymphadenopathies, parotid swelling, prostatitis, and dacryoadenitis) raised the suspicion of a unifying systemic disorder with coronary involvement. An extensive infectious and autoimmune screening was performed, leading to the final diagnosis of IgG4-related disease. Read More

Newborn twins both had a blue, smooth tumour in the inner angle of the orbit; one of them had two such tumours. They were diagnosed with congenital dacryocystoceles. If decompression into the nose is not effective, patients should undergo probing early in life to reduce the incidence of dacryocystitis and orbital cellulitis. Read More

Overview of benign and malignant lacrimal gland tumors.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2018 Sep;29(5):458-468

Ocular Oncology Service, Wills Eye Hospital, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Purpose Of Review: The goal of this article is to review the key clinical and radiological features, treatment strategies, and prognosis of lacrimal gland tumors.

Recent Findings: Debulking of the orbital lobe of the lacrimal gland may offer improved control rates in dacryoadenitis without compromise of tear film function. Contrary to previous belief, careful biopsy of the lacrimal gland prior to excision does not appear to increase the risk of recurrence in cases with suspected pleomorphic adenoma. Read More
