Primary granular cell tumor of the orbit is a rare type of neoplasm. The tumor is frequently associated with extraocular muscles, and eye motility limitation is an unavoidable complication after its surgical removal. The objective of the present article is to review the literature on primary granular cell tumors of the orbit and to report a case of this(More)
PURPOSE To describe the clinical and radiologic features of orbital involvement in craniofacial brown tumors and to compare the rate of brown tumors in primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism. METHODS A retrospective hospital-based study of 115 patients with chronic kidney disease and secondary hyperparathyroidism and 34 with primary hyperparathyroidism(More)
A 12-year-old girl had a 6-year history of a large soft-tissue mass in her left orbit. The tumor biopsy was previously performed elsewhere when she was 7 years old, but no treatment was offered at that time. Later, the tumor was completely excised, and histologic examination revealed a mesenchymal neoplasia with typical hemangiopericytoma features. At 9(More)
BACKGROUND Halofuginone (HF) is a low-molecular-weight alkaloid that has been demonstrated to interfere with Metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) and Tumor Growth Factor-β (TGF-β) function and, to present antiangiogenic, antiproliferative and proapoptotic properties in several solid tumor models. Based on the fact that high levels of Vascular Endothelial Growth(More)
A 28-year-old woman presented with progressive proptosis of the left eye. She had a history of familial thrombocytopenia and Hashimoto thyroiditis. CT of the orbits demonstrated a bilateral diffuse intraconal and extraconal infiltration. Biopsy from the left intraconal area revealed the typical histopathology of xanthogranuloma with a mixture of foamy(More)
PURPOSE To describe the clinical and radiologic features of 4 cases of ossifying fibroma affecting the orbit and to review the literature on orbital involvement by the tumor. METHODS Small case series. RESULTS Four patients (3 children and 1 adult) with ossifying fibromas invading the orbit were examined. Two of the 3 children were examined for(More)
We describe a rare case of sinonasal T-cell lymphoma in an 11-year-old boy who presented with a right acute orbit characterized by proptosis, eyelid edema and erythema, limitation of eye movements, and excruciating pain on the right side of his face. Orbital computed tomography showed progressive right extraocular muscle enlargement. One biopsy specimen(More)
A 5-year-old girl with DeSanctis-Cacchione syndrome (a severe variant of xeroderma pigmentosum) was referred for evaluation of multiple eyelid and bulbar conjunctival squamous cell carcinomas. Examination evidenced multiple vegetating lesions on the eyelid, bulbar conjunctiva, and cornea of both eyes. As the lesions were considered not to be manageable by(More)
A 47-year-old man presented with complaints of progressive diplopia in downgaze and a painful firm mass on the left medial superior canthus. On examination, there was marked hyperemia of the superior bulbar conjunctiva of the left eye. Systemic examination revealed erythematous papules on his trunk and pulmonary infiltrates. CT of the orbits revealed a(More)
Neutrophil influx is essential for corneal regeneration (Gan et al. 1999). KM+, a lectin from Artocarpus integrifolia, induces neutrophil migration (Santos-de-Oliveira et al. 1994). This study aims at investigating a possible effect of KM+ on corneal regeneration in rabbits. A 6.0-mm diameter area of debridement was created on the cornea of both eyes by(More)
