Orbital Leakage of Intraocular Silicone Oil: Case Reports and Literature Review
Silicone oil migration into the periorbital tissues occurs rarely after vitreo-retinal surgery and two cases are reported. The first case was a 48-year-old woman who presented with a blind painful right eye, upper eyelid swelling, and ptosis after multiple vitreo-retinal surgeries. Diffuse infiltration of silicone oil in the upper eyelid and anterior orbit was found during evisceration, mainly around the plate of a Baerveldt glaucoma valve. In the second case, a 69-year-old man with prior right scleral rupture underwent silicone oil tamponade for retinal detachment and presented with right upper eyelid swelling due to mult...

A Case of Reactivation of Herpes Simplex Virus Corneal Endotheliitis Following Periocular Botulinum Toxin A Injection
Botulinum toxin type-A is a standard treatment of a variety of neurological disorders. Here, the authors report a rare ocular adverse effect after periocular Botulinum Toxin-A injection for hemifacial spasm. Three weeks after the injection, facial spasm was relieved, but the patient had dimness of vision OS. Examination revealed corneal edema, anterior-chamber reaction, keratic precipitates, and elevated intraocular pressure in OS suggesting reactivation of herpes simplex viral endotheliitis with trabeculitis. The case was successfully treated with oral acyclovir (400 mg) and topical fluorometholone 0.1% for 6 weeks...

Supernumerary Lacrimal Caruncle: A Case Series
A 12-year-old boy and 63-year-old woman were incidentally found to have a solitary, well-defined, raised, ovoid lesion involving the inferomedial palpebral conjunctiva. Both lesions were separate from the lacrimal caruncle with normal conjunctiva surrounding the lesions. Excisional biopsies were consistent with caruncular tissue. In the English literature, supernumerary lacrimal caruncle has only been previously described in adults despite the congenital nature of the lesion.

Surgical Treatment of Massive Teratoma of the Orbit
Orbital location of teratoma is extremely rare. The differential diagnosis can be difficult and they may be mistaken for other tumors as they may have both cystic and solid areas. The authors report a case of a 7-day-old neonate with a massive congenital orbital teratoma in which it was decided to apply a surgical technique that involves the aspiration of the cystic fluid, the subsequent infusion of fibrin glue, and the radical excision. The definitive histological examination reported a diagnosis of trifillic cystic teratoma. At fourth year of follow up the patient is free from disease.

Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumor of the Orbit in an 8-Month Old
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is a mesenchymal neoplasm, commonly seen in the lung and abdominopelvic region of children. The authors present an 8-month-old female with a 2-month history of left-sided proptosis. Examination was significant for left-sided proptosis, a left exotropia and hypotropia, left supraduction and adduction deficits, and left optic disc elevation. MRI imaging revealed an extraconal left superomedial orbital mass with globe displacement and proptosis. Left anterior orbitotomy with excisional biopsy showed a solid mass composed of an infiltrative proliferation of bland spindle cells in a variably m...

Dacryoadenitis Associated With Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
A 14-year-old female with juvenile idiopathic arthritis presented with left-sided recurrent painful periorbital swelling of 5 months duration. MRI revealed enlargement of the left lacrimal gland with extensive inflammatory change involving the orbital and periorbital soft tissues. Lacrimal gland biopsy showed evidence of chronic inflammation, and she had intralesional steroid injection at the time of biopsy. She remained asymptomatic at 6-month follow-up visit. Although juvenile idiopathic arthritis is usually related to intraocular inflammation, it may rarely be associated with dacryoadenitis. (Source: Ophthalmic Plastic ...

Orbital Lymphangioma Confined to an Extraocular Muscle
A 48-year-old woman presented with a 1-year history of an enlarging, nontender right lateral intrapalpebral mass overlying the insertion of the right lateral rectus muscle, associated with a 3-month history of worsening right orbital pain and retrobulbar headaches. MR imaging revealed an isointense right orbital mass contained entirely within the right lateral rectus muscle and indistinguishable from it. Transconjunctival biopsy established the diagnosis of lymphangioma. To the authors’ knowledge, this case represents the first reported orbital lymphangioma contained entirely within an extraocular muscle. (Source: Op...

Secondary Acquired Nasolacrimal Duct Obstruction as a Specific Complication of Treatment With Radioactive Iodine (Morphological Study)
Conclusions: Changes revealed in patients of group 1 include desquamation of nasolacrimal duct epithelium, mucous gland lesion, and moderate fibrosis that indicate a probable primary character of the lesion. In patients of group 2, fibrotic changes were more significant and were due to a chronic inflammatory process. Thus, secondary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction after treatment with radioactive iodine has a specific pathogenesis and should be classified as a separate nosological form.

5-Fluorouracil Management of Oculofacial Scars: A Systematic Literature Review
Conclusions: High-quality randomized controlled trials are currently lacking, and the existing literature is predominately not specific to use of 5-FU on the face. These studies, however, suggest that intralesional 5-FU is safe and probably more effective than other options in the management of cutaneous scars in the oculofacial region. The delivery methods, timing, dosing, and concomitant therapies were highly variable. Further high-quality controlled studies specific to oculofacial scars may be indicated to assess the efficacy of 5-FU and to establish the best protocols for administering this medication.

Proptosis as a Primary Symptom of Brain Arteriovenous Malformation
Proptosis is a common yet cardinal symptom that may indicate the development of a wide range of diseases. Causes of proptosis are usually classified into vascular, inflammatory, endocrine, and neoplastic. Herein, the authors describe a case where proptosis manifested as the primary and only symptom of a massive brain arteriovenous malformation. Deprived of any other conventional symptoms and signs of a brain arteriovenous malformation, such as headaches, nausea, vision loss, increased ocular pressure, and so on, brain imaging played a key role in confirming the diagnosis of this patient.
