62. Bilateral ptosis as first presentation of cytophagic histiocytic panniculitis: a case report. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Bilateral ptosis as first presentation of cytophagic histiocytic panniculitis: a case report. Cytophagic histiocytic panniculitis (CHP) is a rare form of nodular panniculitis that may progress to panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma. We report a case of CHP that first manifested as bilateral ptosis, which is the first reported case of this presentation.A 25-year-old woman without medical history was referred to the neurology department of our hospital for evaluation of bilateral ptosis. Three (...) months previously, she suddenly complained of bilateral ptosis without apparent cause. Simultaneously, non-painful tender subcutaneous nodules and eschar-like skin lesions were observed on her extremities and trunk. A diagnosis of CHP was made based on skin biopsy from the left thigh showing lobular panniculitis, vasculitis, and adiponecrosis, with infiltration of inflammatory cells, including lymphocytes, histiocytes, and phagocytic histiocytes. Her condition continued to worsen with corticosteroid

63. Glaucoma Drainage Device Erosion Following Ptosis Surgery. (Abstract)

Glaucoma Drainage Device Erosion Following Ptosis Surgery. To highlight the potential risk of glaucoma drainage device erosion following ptosis surgery.Case report.A 71-year-old man underwent uncomplicated superotemporal Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation in the left eye in 2008. Approximately 8 years later, the patient underwent bilateral ptosis repair, which successfully raised the upper eyelid position. Three months postoperatively, the patient's glaucoma drainage implant tube eroded through (...) the corneal graft tissue and overlying conjunctiva to become exposed. A graft revision surgery was successfully performed with no further complications.Caution and conservative lid elevation may be warranted when performing ptosis repair in patients with a glaucoma drainage implant, and patients with a glaucoma implant undergoing ptosis surgery should be followed closely for signs of tube erosion.

64. Haploinsufficiency of ZNF462 is associated with craniofacial anomalies, corpus callosum dysgenesis, ptosis, and developmental delay. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Haploinsufficiency of ZNF462 is associated with craniofacial anomalies, corpus callosum dysgenesis, ptosis, and developmental delay. The introduction of whole-exome sequencing into the Pediatric Genetics clinic has increased the identification of novel genes associated with neurodevelopmental disorders and congenital anomalies. This agnostic approach has shed light on multiple proteins and pathways not previously known to be associated with disease. Here we report eight subjects from six (...) families with predicted loss of function variants in ZNF462, a zinc-finger protein of unknown function. These individuals have overlapping phenotypes that include ptosis, metopic ridging, craniosynostosis, dysgenesis of the corpus callosum, and developmental delay. We propose that ZNF462 plays an important role in embryonic development, and is associated with craniofacial and neurodevelopmental abnormalities.

Mutations in Histone Acetylase Modifier BRPF1 Cause an Autosomal-Dominant Form of Intellectual Disability with Associated Ptosis. Intellectual disability (ID) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder exhibiting extreme genetic heterogeneity, and more than 500 genes have been implicated in Mendelian forms of ID. We performed exome sequencing in a large family affected by an autosomal-dominant form of mild syndromic ID with ptosis, growth retardation, and hypotonia, and we identified an inherited (...) contribute to the phenotypic severity of 3p25 deletion syndrome but that some specific features, such as ptosis and blepharophimosis, are mostly driven by BRPF1 haploinsufficiency.Copyright © 2017 American Society of Human Genetics.

70. Refractive error characteristics in patients with congenital blepharoptosis before and after ptosis repair surgery. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Refractive error characteristics in patients with congenital blepharoptosis before and after ptosis repair surgery. We examined the effect of surgical repair on the pattern of refractive errors in Korean patients with congenital blepharoptosis.We reviewed the clinical records of 54 patients with congenital blepharoptosis who attended our hospital from 2006 to 2012 and underwent a detailed refractive examination before and after ptosis repair surgery. Among them, 21 of the patients whose (...) refractive data was available for both before and after the surgery were included in order to observe the effect of ptosis repair surgery on refractive error characteristics. The astigmatism groups were divided into three subgroups: with-the-rule (WTR), against-the-rule (ATR), and oblique astigmatism (OA). We also evaluated the severity of astigmatism.Before surgery, the ptotic eyes had more severe astigmatism and a greater percentage of OA than the fellow eyes. The changes in astigmatism magnitude

Clinical trial comparing autogenous fascia lata sling and Gore-Tex suspension in bilateral congenital ptosis. To study the effect of autogenous fascia lata sling (AFLS) versus Gore-Tex suspension (GTS) regarding the functional and aesthetic outcomes in patients with bilateral congenital ptosis.A prospective comparative randomized single-center study enrolled 110 patients with bilateral congenital ptosis. One group (n=55) underwent AFLS and the second group (n=55) underwent GTS. Exclusion (...) and complications) was less in AFLS (P=0.035). Symmetrical lid height and good contour were more frequently attained by AFLS (P=0.007 and 0.047, respectively). However, the frequency of very good, good, poor, recurrence, lagopthalmos, ectropion, infection, and formed lid crease individually showed no statistically significant difference (P=0.252, 0.482, 1, 0.489, 0.438, 1, 0.618, and 0.506, respectively).AFLS is a better choice in surgery for patients with bilateral congenital ptosis because it has fewer

73. Periorbital and Orbital Aging: Senile Enophthalmos as a Cause of Upper Eyelid Ptosis. (Abstract)

Periorbital and Orbital Aging: Senile Enophthalmos as a Cause of Upper Eyelid Ptosis. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of orbital aging over a prolonged period.The orbit and periorbital region were assessed in 21 adult patients over 6 to 24 years with medical-quality facial photographs. The anteroposterior and lateral photographs were evaluated for orbital changes, including enophthalmos and upper eyelid position. Quantitative analysis was performed on the anteroposterior (...) photographs, and qualitative analysis was used to assess enophthalmos.The mean age of the patients was 40 years at initial photography and 57 years at the time of secondary photography. At initial photography, eight of the 21 patients had ptosis: six had bilateral mild ptosis (<2 mm), one had bilateral moderate (2 to 3 mm) ptosis, and one had unilateral mild ptosis. At the second time point, only two patients did not have ptosis: four had unilateral mild, seven had bilateral mild, and eight had bilateral

76. Effects of upper lid blepharoplasty on visual quality in patients with lash ptosis and dermatochalasis Full Text available with Trip Pro

Effects of upper lid blepharoplasty on visual quality in patients with lash ptosis and dermatochalasis To assess the effects of upper lid blepharoplasty on visual quality.Seventy-three eyelids of 39 patients were subjected to upper lid blepharoplasty. Pre- and post-operative contrast sensitivity, visual acuity, vertical palpebral aperture and the degree of lash ptosis were measured.The mean log contrast sensitivities under photopic (P=0.017) and scotopic conditions (P=0.009) were improved after (...) surgery, and these differences were significant. The degree of lash ptosis was also decreased after blepharoplasty (P<0.001).In our study, a significant increase in contrast sensitivity was found after surgery. These results suggest that upper lid blepharoplasty can be helpful for improving visual quality.

80. A trigger-happy soldier with bilateral ptosis and dysphagia Full Text available with Trip Pro

A trigger-happy soldier with bilateral ptosis and dysphagia Muscular dystrophy encompasses a group of disorders characterized by the progressive weakness of the skeletal muscles. These disorders are mostly inherited and have characteristic age and muscle group predilection. Lingual muscle involvement is an unusual feature in patients with the muscular dystrophy and helps in the differential diagnosis. We recently encountered a serving soldier presenting with complaints of bilateral ptosis (...) and dysphagia of 5 years duration. Examination showed bilateral ptosis, percussion myotonia, generalized muscular atrophy including that of tongue muscles, and a characteristic hatchet facies. Investigations revealed elevated creatine kinase and myotonic discharges on electromyography leading to a diagnosis of myotonic dystrophy type 1. Muscular dystrophy has a varied presentation and can pose a diagnostic problem in clinical practice. We present the case to highlight the differential diagnosis of tongue
