PURPOSE To provide an up-to-date review of the clinical presentations, investigations, and management of orbital tuberculosis (OTB). METHODS Systematic review of the literature concerning OTB, limiting the results to English-language peer-reviewed journals. RESULTS Seventy-nine patients from 39 publications were identified as cases of OTB. The condition(More)
AIM To present the clinical features and management outcomes in a large longitudinal series of patients with craniofacial fibrous dysplasia (CFD). METHODS Retrospective interventional consecutive case series. Main outcome measures included signs and symptoms, radiographic findings, long-term outcomes, and postoperative complications. RESULTS A total of(More)
PURPOSE To compare the accuracy of biometry using conventional A-scan ultrasonography and partial coherence interferometry, and to improve the accuracy of biometry by sequential audit of postoperative refractive error. METHODS The study was performed in three phases. In phase 1, 20 consecutive patients undergoing routine phacoemulsification underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Invasive fungal sinusitis is a rare condition that usually occurs in immunocompromised patients and often presents as an orbital apex syndrome. It is frequently misdiagnosed on presentation and is almost always lethal without early treatment. DESIGN Retrospective case series of 14 consecutive patients with biopsy-proven invasive fungal(More)
PURPOSE To describe the clinical, immunohistochemical and prognostic features, as well as outcomes of a large series of patients with orbital and periorbital diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). DESIGN This study is a multicentre, retrospective non-comparative consecutive case series. METHODS The setting for this study was institutional. A total of 37(More)
A 37-year-old man presented with swelling under the lateral aspect of the right upper eyelid. He had sustained an alkali ocular chemical injury 10 years before resulting in persistent lateral canthal webbing. Diagnosis was made of lacrimal duct cyst (dacryops) and webbing of the lateral canthus and the findings were confirmed on computed tomography. He(More)
Proximal obstruction of the lacrimal drainage system is typically managed with conjunctivodacryocystorhinostomy and lacrimal bypass tubes, a technique first described in 1962 by Lester Jones. This initial approach utilizes a temporary stent to allow epithelialization of the fistula. Over the last 49 years numerous alterations to this technique have been(More)
AIMS To describe the outcomes and complications for composite eyelid grafts in a large case series over a 9-year period. METHOD A retrospective study of all patients who underwent a composite graft for eyelid reconstruction between January 2000 and May 2009. A composite eyelid graft involves the excision of a full thickness pentagonal wedge from the donor(More)
PURPOSE To assess the refractive expectations of patients having elective cataract surgery. SETTING Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham, King's Mill Hospital, Sutton-in-Ashfield, and Kidderminster District Hospital, United Kingdom. METHODS A prospective questionnaire study of patients attending a preoperative assessment clinic for elective cataract(More)
PURPOSE To examine the microscopic structure of the upper eyelid of Caucasians, in particular looking for evidence of the presence of smooth muscle fibers and the microscopic nature of the levator aponeurosis. METHODS Full-thickness sagittal sections of central upper eyelids from 11 postmortem upper eyelids of 7 Caucasians (age range 78-101 years at(More)
