Chronic dacryocystitis caused by sarcoidosis.

Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2018 Dec 14. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

Servicio de Anatomía Patológica, Fundació Althaia, Xarxa Assistencial Universitària de Manresa, Manresa, Barcelona, España.

Sarcoidosis of lacrimal sac is a very uncommon disease. When the patient has symptoms of lacrimal sac diseases, it is necessary to take into account the histological evaluation, to demonstrate the involvement of the lacrimal sac by this pathology. In patients with sarcoidosis history, the treatment is surgical and it is suggested to do an external dacryocystorhinostomy, in order to take a biopsy, to get a diagnosis and to establish the incidence of this pathology.

A Rare Cause for Recurrent Implant-Related Inflammation of Orbit: Dacryocystitis.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Dec 13. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery Department of Mersin University Medical Faculty, Mersin, Turkey.

Ultra-thin porous polyethylene has been widely preferred in orbital blow out fracture repair for many years as a safe and stable material. Delayed complications related to the implant in orbital blow out fracture repair are very rare and usually begin as a periorbital inflammation. Infections and tissue reaction to the foreign body are regarded as main causes for implant-related inflammation of which symptoms may vary among the patients and may involve subacute and chronic eyelid swelling, skin redness, pain, conjunctival injection, proptosis, and acute orbital inflammation.

[Intraoperative prevention of dacryocystitis relapse].

Vestn Oftalmol 2018 ;134(5. Vyp. 2):270-275

Research Institute of Eye Diseases, 11A Rossolimo St., Moscow, Russian Federation, 119021; I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University, Chair of Ophthalmology, 8-2 Malaya Trubetskaya St., Moscow, Russian Federation, 119991.

The article reviews the literature devoted to modern intraoperative methods of preventing cicatricial process at the site of dacryostoma after endonasal endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy. Despite the constant improvement of the surgery technique, complications in the postoperative period still occur. They include the formation of granulation tissue at the sites of dacryostoma, synechiae in the nasal cavity, or narrowing of the dacryostoma, which ultimately leads to a relapse of the disease.

Endoscopic and Radiologic Findings in Failed Dacryocystorhinostomy: Teaching Pearls for Success.

Am J Rhinol Allergy 2018 Nov 28:1945892418815044. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

4 Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, Albaha University, Al Bahah, Saudi Arabia.

Background: Although several studies have commented on causes of dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) failure, detailed description of anatomical findings in such cases remains insufficient.

Objective: Our objective was primarily to analyze radiologic, endoscopic, and intraoperative findings in patients presenting with failed DCR and secondarily to assess the outcome of revision endoscopic DCR (endo-DCR) carried out at our institution.

Methods: Twenty-four failed DCRs presenting to our tertiary care center were retrospectively analyzed. Read More

Type I Interferon Signaling Is Required for Dacryoadenitis in the Nonobese Diabetic Mouse Model of Sjögren Syndrome.

Int J Mol Sci 2018 Oct 20;19(10). Epub 2018 Oct 20.

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 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

A case of neglected silicone tube in lacrimal duct for 20 years.

Am J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2018 Sep 22;11:41-44. Epub 2018 May 22.

Department of Ophthalmology, Osaka Medical College, Takatsuki City, Osaka, Japan.

Purpose: To report a case of prolonged placement of a lacrimal silicone tube for 20 years, with evaluation of the lacrimal duct using lacrimal micro-endoscopy and inspection of deformation of the lacrimal tube.

Observations: This study involved a case of dacryocystitis in which a silicone tube had been placed in the patient 20-years previous and that was treated conservatively. Although granulation tissue formation due to dacryocystitis in the lacrimal duct was observed under lacrimal micro-endoscopy, subjective and objective resolution of symptoms, including granulated tissue formation, was achieved after removal of the silicone tube and conservative medical treatment.

IgG4-related disease: review of the histopathologic features, differential diagnosis, and therapeutic approach.

APMIS 2018 Jun;126(6):459-476

The James Homer Wright Pathology Laboratories of the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA, USA.

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an uncommon disorder that demonstrates characteristic clinicopathologic features including sclerosing lesions with storiform fibrosis, increased IgG4+ plasma cells with an increased IgG4+/IgG+ plasma cell ratio, obliterative phlebitis, and often an increased serum IgG4 level. This review summarizes the characteristic histopathologic and clinical features of IgG4-RD with detailed discussion of the histopathologic characteristics of the most commonly involved anatomic sites. We also present recent advances in our understanding of the pathophysiologic mechanisms of IgG4-RD and discuss updates on the treatment, prognosis, and outcomes of this rare disease, including discussion of the possible association between IgG4-RD and malignancy.

The microbiologic profile of dacryocystitis.

Orbit 2018 May 11:1-7. Epub 2018 May 11.

a Institute of Ophthalmology and Visual Science , Rutgers New Jersey Medical School , Newark , NJ , USA.

Purpose: Recent studies suggest an increasing incidence of gram-negative bacteria and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in dacryocystitis. Since patients are often treated empirically without culture data, a changing microbiologic profile will markedly affect the success of oral treatment. To provide current guidelines for the treatment of this common condition, we investigated the microbiology and antibiogram of dacryocystitis seen at our institution. Read More

Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus With Orbital Findings Preceding Skin Rash.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2018 Jul/Aug;34(4):e113-e115

Department of Ophthalmology, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U.S.A.

The authors describe 2 patients who presented with orbital findings and later developed vesicular lesions that were positive for varicella zoster virus and consistent with Herpes Zoster ophthalmicus. One case is the first to involve dacryoadenitis and orbital myositis preceding disseminated Herpes Zoster. In the other case, a patient developed zoster orbital syndrome leading to elevated intraocular pressure, loss of vision, and afferent pupillary defect. Read More

The Imbalance of Lymphocyte Subsets and Cytokines: Potential Immunologic Insights Into the Pathogenesis of Chronic Dacryocystitis.

Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2018 04;59(5):1802-1809

Department of Ophthalmology, Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China.

Purpose: To explore the quantitative distributions of different lymphocyte subsets in the lacrimal sac mucosa and identify changes of Th1- and Th2-associated cytokines in the tears of patients with chronic dacryocystitis.

Methods: Lacrimal sac mucosal specimens from patients with chronic dacryocystitis were analyzed.
