Aetiology confronts two distinct issues: the determinants of individual cases, and the determinants of incidence rate. If exposure to a necessary agent is homogeneous within a population, then case/control and cohort methods will fail to detect it: they will only identify markers of susceptibility. The corresponding strategies in control are the 'high-risk'(More)
BACKGROUND The histological characteristics of ocular adnexal lymphomas have previously provided only a limited guide to clinical outcome for affected patients. This clinicopathological relation was re-examined using the Revised European American Lymphoma (REAL) system to classify the tumours in a large cohort of patients. METHODS The biopsies and(More)
OBJECTIVES To present the clinical and radiologic details of a series of patients with the imploding antrum, or silent sinus, syndrome, together with examples of the surgical findings and management. DESIGN Retrospective, noncomparative case series. PARTICIPANTS Fourteen patients assessed in the Orbital Service at Moorfields Eye Hospital. MAIN OUTCOME(More)
The clinical characteristics and outcome of 50 primary malignant neoplasms of the lacrimal gland are reviewed: 38 (76%) adenoid cystic carcinomas, six (12%) carcinomas arising in pleomorphic adenoma, and six (12%) adenocarcinomas or other types of carcinoma. Most patients presented with a short history and pain, though pain tended to occur less often and(More)
PURPOSE To ascertain the effect of certain parameters on nasolacrimal duct probing. METHODS In a retrospective study of 142 infants and children who underwent nasolacrimal duct probing for congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction, age at time of probing, gender, symptom severity, presence of mucous discharge, and history of probing were correlated with(More)
OBJECTIVE Females are substantially less likely than males to cycle for transport in countries with low bicycle transport mode share. We investigated whether female commuter cyclists were more likely to use bicycle routes that provide separation from motor vehicle traffic. METHODS Census of cyclists observed at 15 locations (including off-road bicycle(More)
While there is increasing interest in the field of travel behaviour change, relatively little attention has been given to the behaviour change potential of major events. ‘Ride to Work Day’ is an annual event which attracts thousands of participants and actively promotes riding to and from work throughout Victoria in Australia. The methodology used to assess(More)
PURPOSE To report a series of 15 primary lacrimal sac tumours and present an algorithm in managing this rare condition. DESIGN Noncomparative interventional case series. METHODS A retrospective review of the clinical, radiological, and pathological records of 15 patients with primary lacrimal sac tumours. Main outcome measures Histologic evaluation and(More)
PURPOSE Although orbital myositis usually responds to prompt systemic therapy, recurrent or persistent episodes often require prolonged therapy. This study presents the clinical and radiologic features of 26 patients with orbital myositis and suggests a treatment regimen with special emphasis on recurrent or persistent orbital myositis.
