Congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction was diagnosed in 170 patients between 1982 and 1991 in Kayseri, Turkey, and 111 patients were treated with massage plus topical antibiotics (MBC), pressure irrigation (PI), probing (PRB) or infracturing of the inferior turbinate (INF). The ages of the patients ranged from one week to 15 years. The obstruction was(More)
The current investigation was designed to determine the total serum sialic acid (TSA), lipid associated sialic acid (LASA), total protein (TP), and TSA/TP values for 16 patients with active form of Behçet's disease, 12 patients with other uveitis types (pathologic controls) and 22 normal individuals. Data analysis indicated significant differences in mean(More)
To evaluate the effectiveness and clinical significance of pattern visual evoked potential (P-VEP) parameters on visual acuity in amblyopic patients under occlusion therapy. A total of 34 consecutive children with anisometropic amblyopia were included in this study. All patients underwent a full initial ophthalmologic and orthoptic evaluation. P-VEP test(More)
OBJECTIVE Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) is a clinical condition characterized by signs and symptoms of increased intracranial pressure, such as headache and papilledema. Our aim was to investigate the etiological and clinical features of pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) in children. MATERIALS AND METHOD We performed a comprehensive analysis of epidemiology,(More)
Mitomycin is an antibiotic with antineoplastic activity which inhibits fibroblast proliferation in the operative field in glaucoma filtering surgery. The authors retrospectively evaluated the effectiveness of trabeculectomy with mitomycin-C as an initial surgical procedure in uncomplicated (primary open angle) glaucoma in 17 eyes of 17 patients; 12 eyes of(More)
The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the epidemiology, clinical features, management and complications of subperiosteal orbital abscesses (SPOA)—a serious complication of rhinosinusitis. Retrospective data of 36 patients with SPOA secondary to acute rhinosinusitis from January 1998 to December 2011 were evaluated. Patients were analyzed in terms of age,(More)
In a patient with ocular melanoma scintigraphy obtained with 99mTc-GSH clearly demonstrated the histologically proven ocular lesion both in planar and SPECT images. 99mTc-sestamibi study obtained in the same patient three days later was negative. 99mTc-GSH is a potential alternative to the currently used radiopharmaceuticals for imaging both cutaneous and(More)
BACKGROUND Congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles (CFEOM1) is classically a congenital, non-progressive, restrictive strabismus syndrome characterized by bilateral ptosis and ophthalmoplegia with an infraducted position of the globes. This autosomal dominant syndrome is caused by mutations in the KIF21A gene. METHODS AND RESULTS In this report we(More)
Prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2 alpha) as its tromethamine salt was topically applied, and hypotensive and other ocular effects were studied, in glaucomatous human eyes. After baseline intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements, 100 micrograms PGF2 alpha tromethamine salt dissolved in 50 milligrams saline was applied to 23 glaucomatous eyes of 20 patients. The(More)
Cogan's Syndrome (CS) is a disease affecting young adults and consists of episodes of acute interstitial keratitis with vestibuloauditory dysfunction. This syndrome was originally described in 1945 by Cogan as a disorder of the eyes and ears, characterized by nonsyphilitic interstitial keratitis with deafness.
