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)

We present the clinicopathologic features of DLE from the lids of seven patients, electron microscopic features of one case, and a review of 31 previously reported cases.
OBJECTIVE To analyze the clinical features, laboratory investigations, and diagnosis of intraocular-central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma in a cohort of patients who underwent diagnostic vitrectomy.
