Primary mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma of the lacrimal drainage system in two pediatric patients.

Eur J Ophthalmol 2019 Mar 12:1120672119837085. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

2 Department of Ophthalmology, Gazi University Medical School, Ankara, Turkey.

Primary non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) of lacrimal drainage system (LDS) is quite rare in children, but it is important to expedite early diagnosis in an effort to alter possible life-threatening disease since they are usually misdiagnosed as chronic dacryocystitis. In the literature, there are few examples of tumors of LDS in children. The authors herein report two pediatric cases of extranodal marginal zone lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT lymphoma) originating from lacrimal sac in an attempt to increase the knowledge about the clinical course of NHL of LDS.

Various modifications of a vascularized nasoseptal flap for repair of extensive skull base dural defects.

J Neurosurg 2019 Feb 8:1-9. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

OBJECTIVEEndonasal surgery of the skull base requires watertight reconstruction of the skull base that can seal the dural defect to prevent postoperative CSF rhinorrhea and consequent intracranial complications. Although the incidence of CSF leakage has decreased significantly since the introduction in 2006 of the vascularized nasoseptal flap (the Hadad-Bassagasteguy flap), reconstruction of extensive skull base dural defects remains challenging. The authors describe a new, modified vascularized nasoseptal flap for reconstruction of extensive skull base dural defects. Read More

Meningoencephalitis Following Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Mar/Apr;35(2):e47-e49

The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

An 81-year-old man with unilateral nasolacrimal duct obstruction underwent routine endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy and 2 days postoperatively developed a severe headache and rigors. Subsequent CT and MRI imaging demonstrated a defect in the floor of the right anterior cranial fossa, which possibly was damaged during the operation, and meningoencephalitis of the adjacent frontal lobe gyrus. Following intravenous antibiotic treatment, the patient made a full recovery with no ongoing sequelae, and his epiphora completely resolved. Read More

[Intraoperative prevention of dacryocystitis relapse].

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.

Congenital Nasolacrimal Duct Obstruction (CNLDO): A Review.

Diseases 2018 Oct 22;6(4). Epub 2018 Oct 22.

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

[Foreign body obstruction in the lacrimal duct after exploration of the duct].

Ugeskr Laeger 2018 Aug;180(35)

Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) is used for treating lacrimal duct obstruction and can be performed with an external (EXT) or an endoscopic (END) approach. In this case report a 70-year-old woman suffering from chronic epiphora had earlier been treated with exploration of the lacrimal duct with insertion of a silicone tube. Due to continuous epiphora the patient underwent END DCR revision surgery, where a 4-cm silicone tube was retrieved from the distal part of the lacrimal duct. Read More
