Spheno-orbital Lesions-A Major Review of Nonmeningioma Causes.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 Mar 24. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Orbital Plastic and Lacrimal Clinic, Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital Centre for Eye Research Australia, University of Melbourne Department of Radiology, St Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Department of Surgery, Royal Melbourne Hospital, University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria, Australia.

Purpose: To review the imaging features of the broad range of nonmeningioma lesions of the greater wing of the sphenoid (GWS) bone and adjacent orbit to assist clinicians in differentiating these lesions from each other and from the most common lesion of the GWS and adjacent orbit, meningioma.

Methods: We reviewed 32 cases of spheno-orbital lesions involving the GWS from our own practice, as well as 109 published cases (total 141), with emphasis on available imaging features on computerized tomography (CT) and MRI. Features that might assist in differentiating meningioma from its mimics were analyzed for each lesion, including the presence of an osteoblastic or hyperostotic response, bone erosion or osteolysis, homogeneous hypo- or hyperintensity on T2-weighted MRI, leptomeningeal involvement, and the absence of a "dural tail" on contrast-enhanced MRI.

Masquerades of Acquired Dacryocystocele.

Clin Ophthalmol 2020 2;14:1855-1858. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

Govindram Seksaria Institute of Dacryology, L.V. Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad 500034, Telangana, India.

Introduction: Dacryocystocele can be congenital or acquired and acute or chronic, based on underlying pathology. An inferomedial anterior orbital mass lesion can masquerade an acquired dacryocystocele with similar symptomatology; however, the treatment varies. Hence, a careful examination of the swelling to differentiate these masquerades is needed to ensure rightful treatment. Read More

Subconjunctival Lipid Leakage From Deep Orbital Dermoid Cysts.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 Sep/Oct;36(5):e110-e112

Adnexal Service, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, United Kingdom.

Orbital dermoid cysts are fairly common and arise by sequestration of surface ectoderm along skeletal suture lines during embryologic development. Although anterior dermoid cysts are generally evident in infancy, deeper cysts typically present with inflammatory symptoms in adulthood. The authors report the clinical and imaging features for 6 cases of deep orbital dermoid cysts that were identified by the presence of subconjunctival lipid droplets; to the authors' knowledge, this case report represents the largest series of dermoids with such a presentation.

Surgical Treatment of Massive Teratoma of the Orbit.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 May/Jun;36(3):e68-e70

Division of Maxillofacial Surgery, Surgical Science Department, Maxillofacial Unit, University of Torino, Torino, Italy.

Orbital location of teratoma is extremely rare. The differential diagnosis can be difficult and they may be mistaken for other tumors as they may have both cystic and solid areas. The authors report a case of a 7-day-old neonate with a massive congenital orbital teratoma in which it was decided to apply a surgical technique that involves the aspiration of the cystic fluid, the subsequent infusion of fibrin glue, and the radical excision.

Paediatric orbital conjunctival epithelial cyst with positive asialotransferrin.

Orbit 2020 Dec 20;39(6):426-432. Epub 2019 Dec 20.

Department of Ophthalmology, Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital , East Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Conjunctival orbital cysts are rare; they are typically either conjunctival dermoid or conjunctival epithelial cysts - congenital or acquired (inclusion). We describe the case of a 15-month-old girl presenting with strabismus and proptosis who had a retrobulbar intraconal cystic lesion displacing the optic nerve, with an adjacent middle cranial fossa anomaly. Aspiration of the orbital cyst tested positive for asialotransferrin, raising the suspicion of a direct communication with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Read More

Pan Afr Med J 2019 10;34:21. Epub 2019 Sep 10.

Service d'Ophtalmologie, Hôpital Militaire d'Instruction Mohammed V, Rabat, Maroc.

Dermolipoma is an ectopic skin formation with a greasy component which develops at the level of the fornix of the external canthus. Surgery for dermolipoma is not devoid of dangers. There is essentially a risk of causing damage to the right external muscle and levator muscle of the upper eyelid because there is no cleavage plane between the lesion and the adjacent normal tissues to which it adheres.
