Pleomorphic adenoma is a common benign salivary gland tumor, which represents about 66 % of benign neoplasms of the salivary glands. Although it can occur in any salivary gland, it is most frequently found in the parotid. Pleomorphic adenomas are renowned for their cytomorphological and architectural heterogeneity that are characterized by intermixed(More)
The corneal sensibility was examined with the aesthesiometer of Draeger in 41 patients after refractive corneal surgery, 31 patients after radial keratotomy, 5 after epikeratophakia, 5 after excimer laser ablation. It could be shown that after radial corneal incisions the sensibility remains normal. After epikeratophakia the corneal sensibility is asensible(More)
Helmholtz suspected there was a connection between intraocuclar pressure and lateration of corneal curvature. With a view to potential changes in corneal stability following different refractive procedures, we tried to demonstrate these side effects by increasing the intraocular pressure. A tilting-table was used to induce a rapid pressure increase via the(More)
Isolated paralysis of hypoglossal nerve is uncommon, generally being associated with other neuropathies. A careful differential diagnosis is necessary to recognize the underlying diseases, some of which can be life-threatening. The authors report a patient of an 80-year-old woman presenting with an isolated hypoglossal palsy, mimicking a tongue neoplasm.(More)
Corneal sensitivity was examined with the Draeger aesthesiometer in 8 patients after lamellar keratoplasty, 7 patients after epikeratophakia and 82 patients after photorefractive keratectomy. We examined 9 different points in each cornea. The corneal sensitivity of patients after lamellar keratoplasty was normal 1 year after operation. A correlation with(More)
