Socket Reconstruction With Bleomycin, Gentamicin, and Gelatin Sponges Following Eyelid-Sparing Orbital Exenteration for a Colobomatous Macrocyst in an Infant.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2018 Nov/Dec;34(6):e201-e203

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Kellogg Eye Center, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, U.S.A.

Microphthalmia is defined by a globe axial length greater than or equal to 2 standard deviations below the age-adjusted mean and can occur as part of a broader syndrome. The presence of a colobomatous cyst with microphthalmia signifies failure of the embryonic neuroectodermal fissure to close appropriately during development of the globe, creating a protuberant globular appendage that inhibits normal growth and development of the eye itself. Cystic reaccumulation of fluid is common after aspiration or surgical removal. Read More

Biochem Biophys Res Commun 2018 04 21;499(1):78-85. Epub 2018 Mar 21.

Laboratory of Molecular Neuroscience and Neurology, Tokyo University of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, Hachioji, Tokyo 192-0392, Japan; Department of Pharmacology, National Research Institute for Child Health and Development, Setagaya, Tokyo 157-8535, Japan. Electronic address:

Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS) is a craniofacial developmental disorder whose key feature is a combination of symptoms. For example, a patient could have bilateral downward slanting of the palpebral fissures, colobomas of the lower eyelids, hypoplasia of the facial bones, cleft palate, malformation of the external ears, and atresia of the external auditory canals. TCS3 is caused by mutations of the polr1c gene, which encodes RNA polymerase I and III subunit C (POLR1C). Read More
