IgG4-related orbital disease (IgG4-ROD) is a recently described condition that may account for a significant proportion of idiopathic lymphoplasmacytic or sclerotic orbital lesions. This study is the first meta-analysis of published cases and reveals several differences between IgG4-related disease affecting the orbit and that affecting the pancreas.(More)
A 71-year-old woman presented with erythematous, nontender, bilateral hard palate nodules of 6-month duration. Biopsy showed collagenous sclerosis and a follicular lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate among the minor salivary glands. Immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgG4 staining showed 280 IgG4(+) cells per high-power field and a ratio of IgG4(+) to IgG(+) cells of 0.8.(More)
Endoluminal sonography using the IVUS is a minimally invasive procedure performed using a flexible 6.2F catheter with a 20 megahertz transducer that can easily be passed endoscopically to image the urethra, bladder, ureter and renal pelvis. In the current study, a woman patient in her third trimester of pregnancy with a renal pelvic stone and persistent(More)
The advancement of contemporary three dimensional integrated circuit (3D IC) technologies offers a promising solution for the insatiable demand of the consumer electronics market. The increased complexity of 3D IC design permits the execution of multiple applications at greater speeds whilst remaining within the design constraints of energy consumption,(More)
AIM To determine the proportion of idiopathic orbital inflammation (IOI) and orbital benign lymphoid hyperplasia (OBLH) accounted for by immunoglobulin (Ig)G4-related orbital disease (IgG4-ROD) using the comprehensive diagnostic criteria for IgG4-related disease published by Umehara et al and the consensus diagnostic criteria published by Deshpande et al.(More)
PURPOSE To review the clinical and histologic features of idiopathic dacryoadenitis, and to assess prognostic factors associated with disease recurrence, treatment recalcitrance, and incomplete treatment response. DESIGN Retrospective interventional case series. METHODS setting: Tertiary referral centers. PATIENTS Seventy-nine cases of(More)
Orbital Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) without bone involvement is rare. Isolated involvement of an extraocular muscle without bone change, to the best of the authors' knowledge, has not been previously reported. They describe a unique case of unifocal LCH of the superior oblique muscle with no bone involvement. A 16-year-old girl presented with a(More)
To the Editor: We read with interest the recent consensus statement by Deshpande et al.1 The proposed diagnostic criteria require characteristic histological features, an IgG4þ /IgGþ ratio 440%, and an intensity of IgG4þ staining that is organspecific. For lacrimal lesions, a cutoff of 100 IgG4þ cells/hpf is proposed, markedly higher than the cutoff of 10(More)
