CONCLUSION: BTXA chemodenervation reduced the angle of deviation and the number of patients with diplopia regardless of the cause of paralytic strabismus. Early BTXA chemodenervation can be considered as the first treatment of choice in paralytic strabismus, especially in esotropia patients.PMID:34823346 | DOI:10.3341/kjo.2021.0054

Semin Neurol 2021; 41: 673-685 DOI: 10.1055/s-0041-1726358Facial palsy is a common neurologic concern and is the most common cranial neuropathy. The facial nerve contains motor, parasympathetic, and special sensory functions. The most common form of facial palsy is idiopathic (Bell's palsy). A classic presentation requires no further diagnostic measures, and generally improves with a course of corticosteroid and antiviral therapy. If the presentation is atypical, or concerning features are present, additional studies such as brain imaging and cerebrospinal fluid analysis may be indicated. Many conditions may present with f...

Semin Neurol 2021; 41: 699-716 DOI: 10.1055/s-0041-1726362Visual complaints are commonly encountered by the practicing neurologist. We review assessment of vision loss, diplopia, and positive visual phenomena, all of which require a thoughtful evaluation to localize disease and refine management. While many causative entities are unlikely to cause poor visual outcomes, including dry eyes, migraine, and congenital strabismus, others may threaten vision, life, or both, such as posterior communicating artery aneurysms, pituitary apoplexy, or temporal arteritis. A systematic approach to vision loss and diplopia is reviewed alo...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness of an eye-tracking-based test (ETBT) to measure eye deviation angle vs. a manual prism alternating cover test (PACT) in children with strabismus.DESIGN: The prospective, masked, cross-sectional study included 95 children aged 1.8 years and older. Eye deviation was tested twice by each of ETBT and PACT. Each subject underwent four strabismus measurements, two by the ETBT and two by PACT. In each test, subjects were fixated on accommodative targets at 50 cm, with habitual optical correc...

(Bloomberg) — There are four critical facets of pandemic prevention, according to Lee Hannah, senior scientist at Conservation International. Three of them make immediate sense against the backdrop of our current emergency: stockpile masks and respirators; have testing infrastructure ready; and ban the global wildlife trade, including the open animal markets where COVID-19 may have first infected people. His fourth recommendation is more grandiose: “Take care of nature.” The assault on ecosystems that allowed COVID-19 to jump from animals to humans went far beyond merchants hunting and selling rare wildli...

Discussion Inflammation of the middle layer of the eye, or uvea, is termed uveitis. Uveitis can be divided into anterior, intermediate or posterior uveitis by involving the anterior (iris and ciliary body), intermediate (vitreous) or posterior (choroid and usually retina) compartments. Panuveitis involves all 3 compartments. Duration can also be used to classify uveitis. Acute is 6 weeks and> 3 months is chronic persistent uveitis. Episodic periods of inactivity and reactivity that last more than 3 months are called recurrent uveitis. A third way to characterize uveitis is if it is granulomatous or not. Uveitis increase...
