We have analyzed the etiological causes of ptosis in a retrospective study of 484 cases undergoing operation. This study has confirmed how difficult it is to classify ptosis despite the different existing classifications. Some authors divide ptosis into two groups: congenital and acquired. These classifications seem to have been abandoned now for(More)
We report a case of anophthalmia discovered after birth and discuss the need to resolve diagnostic difficulties and determine prognosis. This is an exceptional malformation which is particularly difficult to manage. It often occurs in the context of a complex malformation syndrome. Recent imaging techniques including magnetic resonance imaging help(More)
INTRODUCTION Nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) is a common clinical problem (5 to 6% of newborns). Dacryostenosis is a partial or complete block in the nasolacrimal duct. PATIENTS AND METHODS The records of 68 patients (92 cases) of NLDO with/without mucocele were reviewed. The probing was performed early and according to the same technique. RESULTS(More)
Systemic diseases are unknown diffuse inflammatory disorders. They include systemic and metabolic diseases and connective tissue diseases. Among them, lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, polymyositis and dermatomyositis, Sjögren syndrome, Wegener's granulomatosis, sarcoidosis, Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada's syndrome, and amyloidosis are the diseases encountered most(More)
We report on a new instrument in eyelid surgery: the ptosis forceps with a protected lock. This new device helps the surgeon to dissect the levator muscle to facilitate any type of levator surgery. It is particularly useful in the adjustment of the superior lid margin level towards the corneoscleral area in ptosis surgery with levator resection.
OBJECTIVES Epiphora is frequently related to stenosis of the lacrimal drainage pathways. In the evaluation of stenosis, dacryo-CT scan remains the gold standard, despite the need for radiation and catheterization of the lacrimal passages. Evaluation by high field 3T MRI compared to the gold standard in the morphological study of the lacrimal passages and(More)
PURPOSE Acquired postoperative ptosis (PP) are difficult to situate in the current classification of ptosis. Assessement of the mechanisms, the clinical features and the possible treatments of these PP would suggest a new classification of ptosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Among 260 cases of surgically corrected ptosis, 43 cases of PP (16.5%) were detected and(More)
Necrotizing periorbital or palpebro-orbital fasciitis represents a unique anatomical site for necrotizing fasciitis, which is an extremely rare and very severe, potentially devastating bacterial infection, rapidly leading to facial necrosis with loss of vision and even death of the patient from toxic shock. In this paper, we report a case of necrotizing(More)
Proptosis due to intraorbital tumors is frequent and secondary to several etiologies. Generally, young people (0-20 years of age) will be affected mainly by benign diseases, such as angiomas or cysts (often dermoid cysts). Yet the ophthalmologist must never forget the possibility of rhabdomyosarcoma occurrence in a child. Adults (20-60 years of age) will(More)
Congenital eyelid malpositions can be isolated or associated with other structures such as the eyeball, ocular muscles, and lacrimal pathways. It is important to separate eyelid malpositions, which are topographical disorders, from eyelid malformations, which are constitutional morphological disorders. Only eyelid malpositions will be described in this(More)
