Purpose: Many surgical approaches have been described for achieving satisfactory functionality in patients with facial paralysis, to ensure the protection of the cornea and the highest degree of physiological blinking. Out of all those available, dynamic techniques are indicated when motion recovery and synchrony are the goals pursued. Orbicularis oculi transposition (OOT) allows a genuine restoration of blinking by means of contralateral reinnervation, with minimal insult for the donor site.Met...

Lacrimal gland ductulitis is a rare infection of the lacrimal gland ductules. Individuals affected report a history of chronic mucopurulent conjunctivitis with "stringy" discharge. All patients are clinically noted to have an inflamed lacrimal gland ductule. Prior reports have suggested Actinomyces species as the "probable" etiology.We report the findings of a 42-year-old male found to have lacrimal gland ductulitis with a lacrimal gland abscess, confirmed by radiologic studies. Surgical drainag...

Anti-TNF-α agents (e.g. infliximab, adalimumab, etanercept) are effective management options in various inflammatory and autoimmune diseases (e.g. inflammatory bowel disease). The occurrence during anti-TNF-α agent therapy of a new onset or exacerbation of an inflammatory condition that usually responds to this class of drug has been termed a paradoxical adverse event (PAE). A wide range of ophthalmic PAEs have been reported including uveitis, optic neuritis/neuropathy, scleritis, orbital myosit...

Adenoid cystic carcinoma (AdCC) is a rare epithelial neoplasm of the head and neck, most commonly found in the salivary glands. Orbital AdCC is an uncommon clinical entity arising from the lacrimal glands, however primary orbital AdCC has been previously described in a small number of case reports. The exact origin of the neoplasm with uninvolved lacrimal gland in the orbit is unknown, however it may arise from ectopic lacrimal or salivary gland tissue, or extension from nearby epithelial struct...

Ablepharon-macrostomia syndrome (AMS) and Barber-Say syndrome (BSS) are congenital ectodermal dysplasias associated with mutations in the TWIST2 gene. Among the ophthalmic anomalies that occur in these syndromes, underdevelopment of the anterior lamella of the eyelid is a defining feature. Reports of mosaic expression of TWIST2 mutations are extremely rare, with only five confirmed or suspected cases described to date. Mosaic expression of TWIST2 variants is correlated with a less severe phenoty...

Purpose: Localization of the lacrimal sac is a critical step during endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (endo-DCR). A "light pipe" can be used to transilluminate the lacrimal sac endonasally. We hypothesized that this may misguide the surgeon learning endo-DCR to create an osteotomy mostly posterior to the maxillary line if only the bone overlying the transillumination was to be removed, as the thinner lacrimal bone will transmit light more readily than the thicker maxillary bone of the frontal pro...
