Twenty-two patients with clinical presentations of either orbital lymphoma or orbital inflammatory syndrome (OIS) involving 25 orbits were examined by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) before biopsy. To determine whether MRI adds specificity to radiographic diagnosis, the MRI signal characteristics of all tumors were examined. Attention was focused on the(More)
Chronic pressure ulcers are a significant health problem especially in the aging population. National estimated annual treatment costs are in the billions of dollars. Only two treatment-related recommendations receive high ratings for reported experimental evidence of validity: Use of moist wound dressings and adjunctive electrotherapy for unresponsive(More)
OBJECTIVE To define the clinicopathologic features of eyelid involvement in Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome (MRS). METHODS Four patients with eyelid edema consistent with MRS were evaluated clinically, including diagnostic imaging in 2 patients. Eyelid tissue from these patients was examined by light microscopy and immunohistochemistry. Polymerase chain(More)
Anabolic steroid agents may potentially promote wound healing in individuals with spinal cord injury who have long-standing wounds. Nine patients hospitalized on the Spinal Cord Injury Service of the VA Medical Center, Bronx, NY, received treatment with an anabolic agent and amino acid supplement. Selection of patients was based on having at least 1 of the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the potential of Histoplasma capsulatum to cause optic neuritis in the setting of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). METHODS We examined a 35-year-old man with a history of AIDS and disseminated histoplasmosis who developed a unilateral progressive optic neuritis of enigmatic origin. An optic nerve sheath biopsy was(More)
A severe pelvic infection developed in a 17-year-old primigravida after a cesarean section. Multiple antibiotics were administered for presumed mixed aerobic and anaerobic infections, without improvement. Subsequently, total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy were performed. Despite negative standard cultures, her condition continued to(More)
Mydriasis after operative repair of orbital floor fracture has been attributed to manipulation of the inferior oblique muscle. We treated two patients with mydriasis, one with an isolated mydriatic pupil and the other with a tonic pupil, which followed posterior orbital floor injuries and repair. The posterior location of the fractures suggests that(More)
The effect of varying doses of d-amphetamine on the activity level of C57BL/6J mice (known for their high activity level), DBA/1J, C3H/HeJ, and C3D2F1 mice was investigated (all mice were 25 to 30 days old). Activity was measured by the use of an activity cage with a revolving drum. After determination of baseline activity level, the animals were assigned(More)
