62. A new mucolipidosis with psychomotor retardation, corneal clouding, and retinal degeneration. (PubMed)

A new mucolipidosis with psychomotor retardation, corneal clouding, and retinal degeneration. A man now 22 years of age had slow psychomotor development about 6 months after birth and developed intermittent corneal clouding at about 18 months. He developed truncal ataxia, hypotonia of the limbs combined with spasticity, and active deep reflexes. These have not progressed. His skeleton and facies are normal. Between his first and thriteenth year he developed sev ere optic atrophy, absence

evoked measurable tear secretion, with central corneal mechanical stimulation evoking the strongest lacrimation reflex. Central mechanical corneal stimulation is the most effective stimulus-position pairing and appears to be the major sensory driving force for reflex tear secretion by the lacrimal functional unit. (...) Interaction of corneal nociceptive stimulation and lacrimal secretion. To investigate the interaction between corneal stimuli at different positions and tear secretion and to establish relationships between nociceptive stimuli detection thresholds and stimulated tearing.Using a computerized Belmonte-esthesiometer, mechanical and chemical stimuli, from 0% to 200% of the threshold in 50% steps, were delivered (in random order) to the central and peripheral (approximately 2-mm inside the limbus

that innocuous "cold" cornea thermoreceptors are activated by drying of the ocular surface and hyperosmotic solutions, conditions that are consistent with a role in tear production. The authors hypothesize that the dysfunction of these corneal afferents and the lacrimation reflex pathway they activate lead to some forms of dry eye disease. (...)

To investigate the response characteristics of the corneal afferents that detect ocular conditions critical to the activation of the "afferent limb" of the lacrimation reflex.In isoflurane-anesthetized male rats, trigeminal ganglia were explored extracellularly in vivo to identify the corneal neurons that can be activated by ocular stimuli important

cortex. Efferent motor fibres originate in the motor nucleus of the trigeminal nerve in the mid-pons and travel with V3 through the foramen ovale to supply the muscles of mastication (masseter, temporalis, mylohyoid, medial and lateral pterygoid, and anterior belly of the digastric), as well as the tensor tympani and tensor veli palatini. The trigeminal nerve and its branches also mediate the afferent limbs of the corneal blink and lacrimal reflexes, and both afferent and efferent limbs of the jaw (...) . The strength of the pterygoid muscles may be tested by asking the patient to open the jaw against resistance. The corneal reflex can be tested with cotton wool (afferent-trigeminal, efferent-facial) and elicits an ipsilateral and contralateral blink response in normal individuals. Facial (VII) Anatomy The facial nerve is composed of both motor and sensory roots (nervus intermedius) and has a long intracranial course with 3 bends and multiple branches. The motor root has neuronal cell bodies in the facial

Tests for detecting strabismus in children aged 1 to 6 years in the community. Strabismus (misalignment of the eyes) is a risk factor for impaired visual development both of visual acuity and of stereopsis. Detection of strabismus in the community by non-expert examiners may be performed using a number of different index tests that include direct measures of misalignment (corneal or fundus reflex tests), or indirect measures such as stereopsis and visual acuity.
