Neonatal-onset Congenital Ectropion Uveae: a distinct phenotype of Newborn glaucoma

To describe “neonatal-onset congenital ectropion uveae (N-CEU)” as a distinct clinical entity of newborn glaucoma (NG), and study its significance towards the severity and outcome of NG.

Conclusions: XEN-augmented Baerveldt implantation was used for refractory pediatric glaucoma in which conventional surgery had already failed. A new additional modification using an S-shaped loop was introduced. Short-term IOP control seems promising, but long-term results are still pending and the long-term efficacy and safety must still be proven before this technique can be generally recommended.

Conclusion: Although CEU is rare, ophthalmologists should be familiar with this syndrome because of the high frequency of glaucoma and its challenging management during childhood. PMID: 31660115 [PubMed]

ConclusionThis self-reported survey showed that the lack of adequate surgical exposure during residency training was the main reason of incompetency. This resulted in reduction of ophthalmologists’ future practice of surgical procedures outside the scope of their sub-specialty. This emphasizes that physicians mainly practice what they surgically acquire during their fellowship training.

We report the case of congenital ectropion uveae in a 10-year-old boy with intractable unilateral glaucoma but no systemic association. Glaucoma in congenital ectropion uveae is often poorly responsive to medial therapy and requires surgical intervention. Satisfactory results are possible if diagnosis is established early and timely surgery performed, as was the case in our patient. PMID: 31282208 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Iris varix is primarily located in the inferotemporal quadrant and not associated with dysmorphic pupillary findings, progression, secondary glaucoma, or malignancy. Iris varices were benign vasculopathies with no associated ocular or vision-related morbidity.

ABSTRACT Purpose: To estimate the prevalence of external punctal stenosis (EPS) in the elderly population and investigate associated factors. Methods: A total of 278 patients ≥ 65 years of age were evaluated for evidence of EPS from January to July 2016. Associated systemic, ocular, demographic, and lifestyle factors were investigated. Multiple logistic regression analyses were applied to evaluate the factors related to having EPS. P values

Conclusion  Open-angle glaucoma results due to angle dysgenesis, so patients should be carefully examined periodically for its early detection.

The objective of this review is to synthetize the possible vascular disorders of the retina and the optic nerve associated with sleep apnea patients and to discuss the underlying pathophysiological hypotheses. Main mechanisms involved in the ocular complications of OSA are related to intermittent hypoxia, sympathetic system activation, oxidant stress, and deleterious effects of endothelin 1 (ET-1).

This patient has an acquired painless peaked pupil with  apparent focal ectropion uveae at 12 o'clock that has an onset after age 50 years. I believe that the previous LASIK is likely unrelated to the current problem. In the provided image, one can see focal vascular changes in the sclera corresponding to the area of pupil abnormality. Given the age of onset and the painless nature of the problem with no evidence of glaucoma and no apparent involvement of the other eye, I would be most concerned with a focal mitotic process, such as iris or ciliary body melanoma.

We report rare cases of variant aniridia, congenital iris ectropion associated with foveal hypoplasia in both a woman and her son with a mutation of PAX6 gene. To our knowledge, deletion c. 936delC in exon 8 of PAX6 gene has not been reported until now.
