Multimodal imaging in a patient with Prader-Willi syndrome.

Int J Retina Vitreous 2018 30;4:45. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Gavin Herbert Eye Institute, University of California Irvine, 850 Health Sciences Road, Irvine, CA 92697 USA.

Background: Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a genetic disease caused by loss of expression of the paternally inherited copy of several genes on the long arm of chromosome 15. Ophthalmic manifestations of PWS include strabismus, amblyopia, nystagmus, hypopigmentation of the iris and choroid, diabetic retinopathy, cataract and congenital ectropion uvea. An overlap between PWS and oculocutaneous albinism (OCA) has long been recognized and attributed to deletion of OCA2 gene located in PWS critical region (PWCR). Read More

Chanarin-Dorfman syndrome.

Turk J Gastroenterol 2018 Nov 16. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Department of Medical Genetics, Marmara University School of Medicine, İstanbul, Turkey.

Chanarin Dorfman syndrome is a multisystem, very rare, autosomal recessive lipid storage disorder, characterized by the accumulation of lipid vacuoles in neutrophils, and was first described by Dorfman in 1974. Due to a mutation in the ABHD5 gene of the short arm of chromosome 3, lipid is stored in the granulocytes at various sites in the human body, such as the muscle, liver, eye, ear, central nervous system, and bone marrow. Clinically, the disease is presented with ichthyosis, hearing loss, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, cirrhosis, cataract, keratopathy, myopathy, and mental retardation. Read More

Modification of the Lazy-T Procedure for Correction of Punctal Ectropion.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Oculoplastic, Orbital, and Lacrimal Surgery, Aichi Medical University Hospital, Nagakute, Japan.

The Lazy-T procedure is used to correct moderate-to-severe punctal ectropion in the lower eyelid. It includes full-thickness wedge resection of the medial lower eyelid and horizontal tarso-conjunctival diamond excision inferior to the lower punctum. However, the skin wound vertical to the relaxed skin tension lines is often conspicuous and horizontal excision of a part of the tarsus may impair function of the meibomian gland. Read More

What surgical approach has the lowest risk of the lower lid complications in the treatment of orbital floor and periorbital fractures? A frequentist network meta-analysis.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2018 Dec 21;46(12):2164-2175. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

Freelance Researcher, Yemen.

Purpose: Evidence on the best surgical approach with the lowest lower lid complications (LLCs) in the treatment of orbital floor (OF) and periorbital fractures (POFs) is limited because of the absence of head-to-head studies. We performed this network meta-analysis (NMA) to compare various surgical approaches in treatment of OFs and POFs, with respect to LLCs.

Materials And Methods: This NMA based on PRIMSA guidelines studied the incidence of the LLCs among various surgical approaches in the treatment of the OFs and POFs. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Hokkaido University Graduate School of Medicine, Sapporo, Japan.

TGM1 is the most common gene responsible for lamellar ichthyosis. Previous studies have suggested that patients with lamellar ichthyosis carrying two missense mutations in TGM1 show significantly less severe phenotypes than those with at least one truncating mutation in TGM1. Here, we report a patient with severe lamellar ichthyosis who was compound heterozygous for TGM1 missense mutations, including a novel one. Read More

Department for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Canton Hospital Zenica, 72000 Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Introduction: Eye lid reconstruction followed by severe, extensive body and facial burns represents a surgical challenge due to difficulties to obtain proper, healthy skin graft, tissue ischemia and necrosis.

Presentation Of Case: We present a reconstructive lid surgery of cicatricial bilateral lower eyelid ectropion in a case of 31-year-old man who sustained thermal injuries, affecting more than 60% of total body surface area, causing severe, deep dermal burns. Reconstruction was made using the technique of skin cantus-to-cantus incision, contracture release, orbicularis liberation and lid elevation; and oversizing free full-thickness skin graft (FTSG) (Wolfe technique) from the left inguinal region, as the only healthy skin on the entire body surface.

Division of Craniomaxillofacial Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Universidade Federal de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

The present study presents a new surgical approach to treat medial orbital wall fractures, that is, the combined transcutaneous access through subciliary and upper eyelid sulcus incisions. The study performed the retrospective analysis of medical records belonging to 14 consecutive patients with medial orbital wall fracture, who were treated in the Plastic Surgery Division at Federal University of São Paulo, from 2005 to 2013, through the combination of subciliary and upper eyelid sulcus incisions to access the fracture foci. The mean age of the patients was 35. Read More
