Glaucoma secondary to intraocular tumors: mechanisms and management.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2019 Mar;30(2):71-81

Ocular Oncology Service, Wills Eye Hospital, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Purpose Of Review: Glaucoma secondary to intraocular tumors is important to consider in eyes with a known tumor and those with unilateral or refractory glaucoma. The purpose of this review is to discuss the mechanisms and management of intraocular tumors with related secondary glaucoma.

Recent Findings: Several intraocular tumors can lead to glaucoma, including iris melanoma, iris metastasis, iris lymphoma, trabecular meshwork melanoma, choroidal melanoma, choroidal metastasis, retinoblastoma, and medulloepithelioma. Read More

Glaucoma due to ciliary body cysts and pseudoplateau iris: a systematic review of the literature.

Arq Bras Oftalmol 2018 Jun;81(3):254-261

Ophthalmology Department, Hospital Nossa Senhora da Conceição, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil.

The diagnosis of angle-closure glaucoma secondary to iridociliary cysts is challenging and lacks compiled literature support. We present a rare case of bilateral angle-closure glaucoma associated with pseudoplateau iris due to multiple ciliary cysts and conducted a systematic review of the literature to find similar case reports published between November 2006 and November 2016. Only 19 case reports present treatment modalities, and most cases required more than one therapeutic approach for controlling the intraocular pressure. Read More

Uveal schwannoma in a brown-eyed dog.

Vet Ophthalmol 2018 Mar 17;21(2):205-209. Epub 2017 Jan 17.

School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI, USA.

An eleven-year-old, female spayed Boxer dog was diagnosed with a uveal schwannoma (formerly known as the spindle cell tumor of the blue-eyed dog or SCTBED) despite having a uniformly brown iris. The patient presented to emergency for ocular discomfort, and the right globe was subsequently enucleated due to glaucoma and submitted for histopathology. Upon histopathologic evaluation, a uveal schwannoma was diagnosed and confirmed with immunohistochemical staining. Read More

Pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of glaucoma associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome.

Int Ophthalmol 2018 Feb 7;38(1):409-416. Epub 2017 Jan 7.

Department of Ophthalmology, Allama Iqbal Medical College/Jinnah Hospital, Lahore, Pakistan.

Purpose: Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS), also known as encephalotrigeminal angiomatosis, is a condition which includes leptomeningeal hemangioma, facial angiomatosis or nevus flammeus, and ocular changes. SWS can lead to severe complications of anterior segment involving conjunctiva and eyelids, whereas posterior segment of the eye may also be affected by diffuse choroidal hemorrhages. This article was written with the objectives to determine the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of glaucoma associated with this rare and challenging disorder. Read More

Microinvasive tumor endoresection in combination with ocular stereotactic radiosurgery.

J Neurosurg 2016 12;125(Suppl 1):58-63

Department of Radiosurgery, Dr. Berezin Medical Centre, St. Petersburg, Russia.

OBJECTIVE The use of Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) as monotherapy in the treatment of uveal melanoma (UM) allows clinicians to achieve high local tumor control with low recurrence but does not prevent secondary enucleation due to glaucoma in cases of large tumors. The authors analyzed indications for tumor endoresection (ER), the time interval between irradiation and surgery, and the features and results of performing ER for UM after GKRS. METHODS Thirty-seven patients between 28 and 78 years of age (16 male and 11 female patients) with UM underwent GKRS with a dose of 70 to 80 Gy that was applied to the center of the tumor with complete immobilization of the eye during the procedure.

Minimal Disseminated Disease in Nonmetastatic Retinoblastoma With High-Risk Pathologic Features and Association With Disease-Free Survival.

JAMA Ophthalmol 2016 Dec;134(12):1374-1379

Hematology-Oncology Service, Pediatric Hospital S.A.M.I.C. Prof. Dr. Juan P. Garrahan, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Importance: Fatal metastatic relapse may occur in children with retinoblastoma and high-risk pathologic features (HRPFs). Minimal dissemination (MD) may be an additional tool for risk estimation. The use of cone-rod homeobox (CRX) transcription factor messenger RNA for MD evaluation in metastatic retinoblastoma was previously reported, but no data in nonmetastatic cases with HRPFs are available.

Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA.

The objective of this paper is to describe clinical behavior, histopathologic features, and immunohistochemical staining of two-related horses with intraocular teratoid medulloepithelioma. Two-related Quarter Horses with similar intraocular masses presented to the UF-CVM Comparative Ophthalmology Service for evaluation and treatment. The first horse, a 3-year-old gelding, had glaucoma and a cyst-like mass in the anterior chamber. Read More

Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2016 07;57(9):OCT69-79

University of Leicester Ulverscroft Eye Unit, Leicester, United Kingdom.

Purpose: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has revolutionized the diagnosis and management of adult retinal and optic nerve disease. Children were deprived of this technology until the recent development of handheld spectral-domain OCT (HH-SDOCT). In this article, we review the applications of OCT imaging in pediatric ophthalmology. Read More

Ocular Adnexal Lymphoma Presenting as Refractory Unilateral Open-angle Glaucoma.

J Glaucoma 2016 08;25(8):e741-4

Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH.

We report a single case of masquerade glaucoma caused by increased episcleral venous pressure from adnexal lymphoma. The patient presented as a referral for unilateral glaucoma with intraocular pressures (IOPs) consistently >40 mm Hg (right eye). We present data conclusively demonstrating extranodal marginal zone lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue in the involved eye, and provide an account of the treatment of the tumor with sustained regression and complete resolution of his elevated IOP.
