Triton tumor of the orbit.
We describe the case of a 14-year-old girl who presented with a history of painful, progressive protrusion of her right eye with a diminution of vision for the past five years. She had been diagnosed as having an embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the right orbit, and she had undergone surgical debulking followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Despite undergoing multiple modalities of treatment, she had several recurrences prior to this consultation. We reviewed her histology slides. HPE features were consistent with a malignant triton tumor with cartilage and osseous differentiation. Immunohistochemistry was done to confirm...

Sinus pericranii in the upper eyelid: diagnosis and management guidelines.
Abstract Sinus pericranii (SP) is a rare malformation involving aberrant connections between the dural venous sinuses and extracranial veins. Classically considered congenital pathology, there are reported instances of post-traumatic SP in adults. Very rarely, the upper eyelid is involved and the resulting ptosis can obstruct the visual axis. In these cases, surgical removal may be warranted. Because of the high risk of massive intraoperative hemorrhage, careful preoperative identification and diagnostic workup is essential. The authors report a patient with new onset, asymmetric eyelid ptosis referred for evaluat...

IgG4-rich reactive lymphoid hyperplasia of the lacrimal gland.
We describe an otherwise healthy 24-year-old woman with reactive lymphoid hyperplasia of one lacrimal gland. She was found to have modest elevation of serum IgG4 and high density of IgG4+ plasma cells in her lacrimal gland, ranging from 40% to 60% of IgG+ plasma cells. The patient transiently responded to systemic corticosteroids before treatment with rituximab. IgG4-rich reactive lymphoid hyperplasia of the lacrimal gland is neither an established part of IgG4-related disease spectrum nor a known precursor lesion to lymphoma. Although there is a plausible risk of transforming to IgG4-related disease or to lymphoma, the bi...

Post-traumatic enophthalmos secondary to orbital fat atrophy: a volumetric analysis.
Conclusions: In addition to an increase in total orbital volume, orbital fat loss occurs with late post-traumatic enophthalmos due to unrepaired fractures. This suggests correction of bony change alone may be insufficient in some cases, and the use of custom implants may compensate for fat atrophy.

Lacrimal sac primary squamous cell carcinoma with synchronous tonsillar primary squamous cell carcinoma.
Abstract A gentleman with recurrent epiphora after two failed endonasal dacryocystorhinostomies was found to have a squamous cell carcinoma of the lacrimal sac at his third operation via an external approach. CT showed contralateral nodal involvement; however, biopsy of the node found it to be histologically distinct from the lacrimal sac lesion. A PET-CT revealed a second primary lesion located at the contralateral palatine tonsil. We discuss the histological features of squamous cell carcinomas and the impact on prognosis. This case highlights the importance of nasoendoscopy prior to lacrimal surgery. There shou...

Abstract Solitary or isolated neurofibroma is uncommonly observed in the orbit. Neurofibromas typically involve peripheral nerves and occasionally the cranial nerves. A 29-year-old man presented with recent onset left eye proptosis and exotropia. Physical examination was positive for hyperpigmented lesions of the ipsilateral ocular surface and hard palate. Imaging revealed an infiltrative orbital mass with extension through superior orbital fissure into the brain. There was also bone defect of greater sphenoid wing. Medial orbitotomy was performed to obtain biopsies of the orbital mass and the pigmented ocular sur...

We present a case of a severe orbital emphysema secondary to transcanalicular diode laser-assisted dacryocystorhinostomy. The day after the surgery, the examination revealed crepitant periorbital swelling, general restriction of extraocular motility, visual loss and intraocular pressure of more than 70 mmHg. A computed tomography showed a massive orbital emphysema. An emergency decompression, using a 25-gauge needle attached to an empty syringe lacking a plunger was performed, achieving a quick decrease of intraocular pressure and pain and swelling improvement. Then, in this case, orbital decompression by passive airf...

Postural changes revealing orbital venous malformation using ultrasound in blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome.
Abstract A 62-year-old white woman presented with a diagnosis of blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS). The right eye appeared enophthalmic, yet the patient complained of episodes of right proptosis on bending forward. The remainder of the examination was unremarkable. Orbital ultrasound (US) in an upright posture revealed a single low reflectivity cavity (4.27 mm x 2.82 mm) of uncertain interpretation. In a forward-leaning posture the lesion increased in size (maximum thickness of 13.72 mm), demonstrating multiple low reflectivity spaces with highly reflective septae. This case first reports the use of US with ...

Abstract Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia is a common variation of ectodermal dysplasia, characterized by hypohidrosis (or anhidrosis), hypotrichosis, hypodontia, and other distinct facial features. Furthermore, ocular tissues of ectodermal origin may also be affected in this disease.

Psychological distress and coping following eye removal surgery.
Abstract Purpose: Psychological distress is reasonably well documented in people with facial disfigurement; however, in patients following eye removal surgery this has not been studied adequately. We hypothesised that lower distress levels would be associated with age and more adaptive coping strategies and that women would be more likely to report higher levels of distress and, therefore, use maladaptive coping strategies. Methods: This exploratory, cross-sectional study measured distress and coping in a sample of 56 post enucleation or evisceration patients. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale and the Brie...

Conclusion: Dacryops is an uncommon benign cystic lacrimal gland tissue neoplasm. Dacryops can be classified into four types based on locations. Lesions could be either superficial that can be seen through the fornix or deep into the orbit. Observation is also an option for small or asymptomatic lesions. Surgery remains the mainstay of treatment for symptomatic cases, but approaches are different depending on the location of the lesions.
