BACKGROUND Solitary fibrous tumors are rare spindle cell neoplasms that most commonly arise in the pleura. Recently, solitary fibrous tumors of the orbital soft tissues have been described. The authors report the first case of solitary fibrous tumor arising in the lacrimal gland fossa and discuss features that may distinguish solitary fibrous tumor from(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical presentation, treatment, and long-term follow-up of eyelid Merkel cell carcinoma. DESIGN Retrospective noncomparative interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Fourteen patients with primary eyelid Merkel cell carcinoma. METHODS Cases of Merkel cell carcinoma for which long-term follow-up was available were solicited(More)
Five patients had eyelid and periocular Merkel cell carcinoma. The tumor was located on the left lower eyelid in two patients, the left upper eyelid in one patient, the right upper eyelid in one patient, and was metastatic to the right outer canthus in one patient. The mean duration of symptoms was approximately four months. The diagnosis of Merkel cell(More)
We prospectively studied 120 eyes with intact opacified posterior capsules in 120 consecutive patients to determine the incidence of new late-onset angiographic cystoid macular edema (CME) after neodynium: yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser posterior capsulotomy. Fifty-seven of 120 patients (48%) had both precapsulotomy and one-year post-capsulotomy(More)
This article discusses laser ablation of blepharopigmentation in four stages: first, experimentally, where pigment vaporization is readily achieved with the argon blue-green laser; second, in the rabbit animal model, where eyelid blepharopigmentation markings are ablated with the laser; third, in human subjects, where the argon blue-green laser is effective(More)
An 83-year-old man with a history of localized prostate carcinoma treated 16 years prior with transurethral partial prostatectomy and radioactive seed implants presented with a 2-month history of right globe proptosis. Computed tomography demonstrated a right medial rectus mass. Serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) level was normal. Tumor biopsy revealed(More)
We describe a tarsorrhaphy technique whereby an ipsilateral upper-eyelid tarsal pillar is sutured to a corresponding lower-eyelid recipient site. This technique allows maintenance of a narrowed interpalpebral fissure indefinitely, yet is easy to reverse without incurring lid-margin damage. Additionally, the procedure can be adjusted postoperatively to(More)
