Histopathologic alterations in the eyelid after Hughes tarsoconjunctival flap: loss of Meibomian glands with preservation of accessory lacrimal glands.

Orbit 2022 May 26:1-4. Epub 2022 May 26.

Cogan Laboratory of Ophthalmic Pathology, Department of Ophthalmology Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Harvard Medical SchoolDavid G. , Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

A 71-year-old female with invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the lower eyelid involving the ocular surface underwent surgical excision with negative margins and a subsequent reconstruction. The posterior lamellar defect was reconstructed with a Hughes tarsoconjunctival flap, and the anterior lamellar defect was reconstructed by advancing the lower eyelid skin. Three years later, the patient presented with signs suspicious for recurrence involving the tarsoconjunctival graft: a nodule along the mucocutaneus junction, symblepharon, and forniceal shortening.

High-risk HPV-related Squamous Cell Carcinoma in the Conjunctiva and Lacrimal sac: Clinicopathologic Characteristics and Diagnostic Utility of p16 and Rb Immunohistochemistry.

Am J Surg Pathol 2022 Jul 5;46(7):977-987. Epub 2022 Jan 5.

Departments of Anatomic Pathology.

High-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in conjunctival and lacrimal sac squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) has been sporadically reported; however, its prevalence, clinicopathologic significance and surrogate markers have not been fully elucidated.

Int J Biol Macromol 2022 Jan 24;195:93-101. Epub 2021 Nov 24.

Department of Ophthalmology, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, 900 NW 17th St, Miami, FL 33136, USA.

Mutations in the titin (TTN) gene are among the most common genomic aberrations in ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN), the most common cancer of the external eye. Further, TTN mutations are associated with resistance to standard therapy with topical interferon alpha-2b (IFN-α2b). However, it remains unclear how TTN mutations drive OSSN pathogenesis and treatment resistance. Read More
