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.

[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.

Eye Clinic of Genoa, Department of Neuroscience, Rehabilitation, Ophthalmology, Genetics, Maternal and Child Health (DiNOGMI), University of Genova, 16132 Genova, Italy.

Congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) is a common condition causing excessive tearing or mucoid discharge from the eyes, due to blockage of the nasolacrimal duct system. Nasolacrimal duct obstruction affects as many as 20% children aged <1 year worldwide and is often resolved without surgery. Available treatment options are conservative therapy, including observation, lacrimal sac massage and antibiotics, and invasive therapy. Read More

Lichen Planus in Ocular Surface: Major Presentations and Treatments.

Ocul Immunol Inflamm 2018 Jul 9:1-8. Epub 2018 Jul 9.

a Eye Research Center, Farabi Eye Hospital , Tehran University of Medical Sciences , Tehran , Iran.

Ocular lichen planus (LP) is a rare disease which has been increasingly reported in the literature in the last two decades involving conjunctiva, cornea, and lacrimal drainage system. Most reported cases of ocular LP are cicatricial conjunctivitis with subepithelial fibrosis, fornix shortening, and symblepharon formation. It is not clear whether corneal involvement is a primary event or secondary to these changes. Read More
