FreedmanAbstractPurposeTo assess the factors associated with successful outcomes in the management of childhood glaucoma treated with endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP) as both primary and adjunctive surgery.MethodsThe medical records of consecutive children with glaucoma treated by a single surgeon at a single center over a 17-year period using ECP procedures were reviewed retrospectively. Treatment failure was defined as (1) intra...

ConclusionsStrabismus surgery in eyes with existing or planned GDDs for childhood glaucoma usually improves alignment but often does not result in success based on strict motor alignment criteria. Eyes with childhood glaucoma pose surgical technical challenges related to small orbits and exuberant GDD capsule–muscle scarring and postoperative challenges of poor vision and limited binocular function, that likely limit succcess.

ConclusionsIn our study cohort, inferior oblique myectomy had a greater effect in reduction of primary position hypertropia; however, disinsertion proved as effective as myectomy if preoperative vertical deviation was ≤15Δ. Both procedures effectively corrected AHP and demonstrated self-adjustment.

Mutations in the neurite extension and migration factor (NEXMIF) gene are associated with X-linked intellectual disability. Thus far, all males reported withNEXMIF mutations have mild to profound intellectual disability with varying combinations of autistic features, poor or absent speech, epilepsy, facial dysmorphism, and strabismus. Affected females tend to have milder intellectual disability but severe, drug-resistant epilepsy. Here, we present a 32-month-old boy with a novel de novo frameshiftNEXMIF pathogenic variant (p.Glu375ArgfsX21) who has mild motor delay, language delay, autistic features, and strabismus. In add...

CONCLUSIONS:: NBAS mutations can also cause complex disease with a broad clinical spectrum ranging from isolated recurrent acute liver failure (RALF) to a multisystemic phenotype. Due to the heterogeneity of the expressions, a multispeciality approach to this situation is recommended. PMID: 30845840 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
