OBJECTIVES Recent studies revealed that Mikulicz's disease (MD) should be considered as an immunoglobulin (Ig) G4-related disease with aspects of systemic disorders involving the orbit. This study aimed to analyze the relationship between Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related MD and infraorbital nerve thickness. METHODS We measured infraorbital nerve thickness in 68 patients diagnosed as IgG4-related MD at our hospital and performed computed tomography scans of the head and neck region before… CONTINUE READING
