Lacrimal gland uptake of (67)Ga-gallium citrate correlates with biopsy results in patients with suspected sarcoidosis. - Ocular immunology and inflammation
To investigate whether lacrimal gland uptake on (67)Ga-gallium citrate scintigraphy correlates with histopathologic evidence of sarcoidosis.A retrospective, pilot study of 31 patients with suspected sarcoidosis who underwent gallium scintigraphy and lacrimal gland biopsy. Lacrimal gland gallium uptake was assessed by subjective visual scoring (SVS) and lacrimal uptake ratio (LUR).Eleven (36%) patients had lacrimal gland biopsies containing noncaseating granulomas. A statistically significant correlation was found between lacrimal gland gallium uptake and biopsy positivity using SVS (p = 0.03) or LUR (p = 0.01). Using SVS, biopsy positivity rate increased from 0 to 50% in patients with mild to intense uptake. Using LUR, biopsy positivity rate increased linearly as the ratio increased from 13% (LUR < 4) to 100% (LUR > 8).Lacrimal biopsy positivity rate significantly correlated with gallium uptake on scintigraphy. Both SVS and LUR methods appear to correlate with histologic results and may potentially aid in patient selection for biopsy.
Corneal autograft and allograft in a 10-month-old premature boy with acquired bilateral corneal opacities. - Cornea
To report a case in which corneal autograft and allograft were performed in a 10.5-month-old, ex 24-week, premature boy with bilateral corneal opacities from infectious keratitis.Case report based upon chart review.At 3 years, the corneal autograft is clear without vascular ingrowth. After transplantation, the clarity of the autograft improved markedly and unexpectedly from its pretransplantation appearance. The child fixes and follows and has central steady maintained fixation at near with a spectacle correction of +11.00 diopters. The allografted cornea is opaque with 360 degrees of vascular ingrowth. This eye is phthisical with no response to light.In circumstances in which a viable cornea is available from the patient's worse prognosis eye, a corneal autograft is a potential treatment option.
Capsular tension ring in the management of occult lens zonular dehiscence in infantile glaucoma. - Journal of pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus
The authors present a case of bilateral zonular dehiscence in a boy with infantile glaucoma who had developed cataracts. The zonular dehiscence was noted at the beginning of cataract surgery. The cataracts were removed and capsular tension rings and intraocular lenses were safely inserted and remained well centered.Copyright 2010, SLACK Incorporated.
Use of whole-body FDG PET-CT to aid in the diagnosis of occult sarcoidosis. - Ocular immunology and inflammation
To report a case where combined whole-body Fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET-CT scanning was used to aid in the diagnosis of a patient with occult sarcoidosis.Case report.FDG PET-CT scanning was performed in a patient who presented with persistent bilateral panuveitis after cataract surgery and had undergone an extensive negative workup.FDG PET-CT scanning demonstrated extensive mediastinal adenopathy. Biopsy showed a non-caseating granuloma with associated giant cell formation consistent with a diagnosis of sarcoidosis.FDG PET-CT scanning generates tomographic scans with excellent sensitivity, spatial resolution, and anatomical landmark identification and may be useful in the workup of idiopathic uveitis.
