A 75-year-old man with well-controlled type 2 diabetes was referred to our department because of urinary obstruction. He developed retroperitoneal fibrosis 1 year prior to the referral and underwent a ureteral stent insertion at that time. Around the same period, double vision and eyelid ptosis of the right eye coincidentally appeared (figure 1A). We performed MRI of the orbit; it revealed bilateral lacrimal enlargement, especially at the right side (figure 1B, C …

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Accurate discrimination of orbital lymphoma from benign orbital lymphoproliferative disorders is crucial for treatment planning. We evaluated MR imaging including DWI and contrast-enhanced MR imaging for differentiating orbital lymphoma from benign orbital lymphoproliferative disorders. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty-seven histopathologically proved orbital lymphoproliferative disorders (29 orbital lymphomas and 18 benign orbital lymphoproliferative disorders) were evaluate...

BACKGROUND: To elucidate the clinical characteristics of IgG4-related dacryoadenitis. METHODS: Clinical features, laboratory findings, radiological findings, associated diseases, treatment, and prognosis were prospectively examined in 12 patients (seven men, five women; mean age, 60.9 ± 15.1 years) with IgG4-related dacryoadenitis. RESULTS: In addition to eyelid swelling, other ophthalmologic symptoms were observed in seven patients, including diplopia (n = 4), ptosis (n = 2), visual field distu...

Introduction Immunoglobulin (Ig) G4-related disease is a recently designated benign clinical entity histopathologically characterized by sclerosing inflammation and infiltration of numerous IgG4+ plasma cells that affects multiple organs. The purpose of this study is to characterize the imaging findings of patients with histopathologically proven IgG4-related disease in the head, neck, and brain.
