PURPOSE To compare the success rates of probing versus bicanalicular silastic intubation as the primary treatment for congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) in children ≥1 year old. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, randomised, comparison. METHODS Participants were randomised to undergo probing or bicanalicular silastic intubation. In bilateral cases,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the changes in eye position and orbital content expansion following medial and lateral orbital wall decompression for thyroid-associated orbitopathy. METHODS The authors used a computer software program (syngo InSpace4D, syngo 3D, syngo fusion, and syngo Volume Evaluation; Siemens AG, Forchheim, Germany) to measure the orbital(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of optic nerve sheath fenestration (ONSF) on papilledema grade in the operated eyes and the contralateral nonoperated fellow eyes in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). DESIGN Retrospective review. PARTICIPANTS A total of 78 patients underwent ONSF, and 20 patients served as controls. METHODS Charts(More)
BACKGROUND Lipoid proteinosis is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by cutaneous and mucosal lesions and hoarseness appearing in early childhood. It is caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in the ECM1 gene. The disease is largely uncharacterized in Arab population and the mutation(s) spectrum in the Arab population is(More)
PURPOSE To describe the confocal microscopic findings in subepithelial infiltrates associated with epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC). METHODS Observational case report. RESULTS A 14-year-old Saudi girl with keratoconus developed subepithelial infiltrates (SEIs) after the onset of bilateral EKC. Confocal microscopy of the left cornea 8 weeks after the(More)
AIM To evaluate the change in the rectus muscle volume following orbital bony wall decompression for Graves' orbitopathy. METHODS We used a computer program (syngo Volume Evaluation) to measure the rectus muscles from the digital preoperative and postoperative orbital CT. RESULTS Of the 25 patients (20 women and five men; mean age 46 (range 18-64)(More)
AIM Detailed longitudinal evaluation of corneal and other ophthalmological features of patients with lipoid proteinosis (LP). METHODS Ophthalmological examinations, chart review, ultrasound biomicroscopy, corneal confocal microscopic examinations with Nidek confoScan 4 and direct sequencing of the extracellular matrix protein 1 gene in individuals from(More)
We report a 53-year-old female with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus who presented with decreased vision in the right eye for a few hours duration. Orbital computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging were performed at presentation and showed a thickening and infarction of the right optic nerve with no other orbital abnormalities. A few days later, the(More)
A few cases of pleomorphic adenoma of an ectopic lacrimal gland involving the deep orbit and lateral canthus have been previously reported. A 75-year-old female with a slow-growing, large pleomorphic adenoma arising from ectopic lacrimal gland tissue in the left upper eyelid is described in the present case report.
