We performed a prospective multiparametric correlative clinical, histopathologic, and immunologic analysis of 117 ocular adnexal lymphoid proliferations developing in 108 patients between October 1977 and July 1987. The ocular adnexal lymphoid proliferations were distributed among the 108 patients as follows: orbit 69 (64%), conjunctiva 30 (28%), and(More)
CT and MR imaging are the modalities of choice in the assessment of orbital neoplasia. When combined with the clinical history and examination, radiologic imaging can provide valuable information regarding tumor diagnosis. Imaging studies thus enable the clinician to delineate the extent of disease and plan the surgical approach for biopsy or excision. In(More)
Purpose To describe the clinical and histopathologic finding of very limited ophthalmic Wegener granulomatosis (WG). Methods Thirteen patients with scleritis, orbitopathy, episcleritis, and panuveitis were studied. They presented without evidence of lung or kidney disease, though eight had sinus involvement. We reviewed the biopsies for histopathologic(More)
Correlating the CT scan features of patients with orbital Graves' disease with histopathologic observations allows one to focus more specifically on the distinguishing features of this disease with future research implications. Both CT scanning and pathologic studies have shown clearly that the extraocular muscles are the primary focus of the disease.(More)
A retrospective clinicopathologic study of 34 patients with optic nerve glioma disclosed two important architectural tumor forms: circumferential-perineural pattern featuring tumor eruption and proliferation in the subarachnoid space correlating with the presence of neurofibromatosis, and an expansile-intraneural pattern correlating with the absence of(More)
The clinical and pathological data of 66 patients with orbital cavernous hemangioma are presented. This tumor occurs in females more frequently than in males, and has its peak incidence in early middle age. Visual disability results from a high degree of relative hyperopia or from optic-nerve compression. Postural or temporal variation is proptosis is not(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the study is to determine the effect of exogenous vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) on the primate retina and its vasculature. METHODS Ten eyes of five animals were studied. Physiologically relevant amounts of the 165 amino acid isoform of human recombinant VEGF were injected into the vitreous of six healthy cynomolgus(More)
Isolated metastases to the retina or optic nerve are extremely rare. Retinal metastases arise from cutaneous malignant melanoma and carcinomas (lung, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and breast). Most patients present with reduced vision. The clinical appearance of these metastases is variable. Melanoma metastases are brown or black, whereas carcinoma(More)
The cases of 29 patients aged 20 years or less with orbital inflammatory pseudotumor were studied retrospectively. There was no sex predilection, although the left orbit was involved twice as often as the right. Patients typically had abrupt onset of periocular pain, early-morning swelling, chemosis, conjunctival and extraocular muscle injection, proptosis,(More)
In comparison with our earlier colleagues quoted in the introduction, we have made substantial progress in understanding the biology of ocular adnexal lymphoid tumors. While we have refined various categories with prognostic clinical value regarding possible associated systemic disease, none is foolproof and all have varying degrees of unpredictability.(More)
