Multicameral Steatocystoma Simplex of the Caruncle

Charles, Norman C; Jakobiec, Frederick A; Sherwood, Pamela; Belinsky, Irina
A yellow cyst of the caruncle in a 68-year-old man displayed the characteristic sebaceous glands and sebocytes of steatocystoma within the cyst wall, with a unique configuration of multiple branching compartments. The cyst lining was of trichilemmal character, lacking a keratohyalin granular layer, and replicated the immunohistochemical characteristics of a previously reported caruncular steatocystoma with the exception of a positive trichilemmal marker, calretinin, in the present case. Four previous cases of caruncular steatocystoma have been described, only one of which incorporated immunohistochemical analysis. Steatocystoma develops from a sebaceous gland duct, which displayed in this case multiple chambers subdividing what is usually a single round lumen.

Radius of curvature changes in spontaneous improvement of foveoschisis in highly myopic eyes [Case Report]

Hoang, Quan V; Chen, Ching-Lung; Garcia-Arumi, Jose; Sherwood, Pamela R; Chang, Stanley
BACKGROUND:Myopic foveoschisis is the splitting of retinal layers overlying staphyloma in highly myopic patients that can lead to vision loss. We assess possible contributing mechanisms to the formation of foveoschisis by examining two cases of spontaneous improvement of myopic foveoschisis and employ a radius of curvature (ROC) measure to track posterior scleral curvature over time. METHODS:A retrospective, non-comparative case series was performed and optical coherence tomography images were analysed. Retinal pigment epithelial layer ROC was calculated from manually segmented images through the posterior scleral curvature apex. RESULTS:Two cases of myopic foveoschisis with foveal detachments in the left eye (OS) were studied. Both patients had high myopia (either <-10 D or >30 mm in axial length). One case occurred in a treatment-naive patient who improved after 4 months of observation. On initial presentation, OS posterior scleral ROC was 12.35 mm and decreased to 12.15 mm at the time of resolution. The other case occurred in a patient who was followed for 7 years, had previously underwent pars plana vitrectomy and removal of epiretinal membrane, experienced recurrence of foveoschisis and then spontaneously improved without further posterior segment surgery. There was an uncomplicated cataract extraction in the interim. Posterior scleral ROC was 4.05 mm on presentation, 4.10 during recurrence, 3.55 mm after cataract extraction and 3.75 mm at resolution. CONCLUSIONS:Spontaneous improvement of myopic foveoschisis may be due to changes in tractional forces from the internal limiting membrane, cortical vitreous or staphyloma or, alternatively, from a delayed or fluctuant recovery course after intervention.

The lateral brow: position in relation to age, gender, and ethnicity

Glass, Lora Rabin Dagi; Lira, Jennifer; Enkhbold, Enkhnasan; Dimont, Emmanuel; Scofield, Stacy; Sherwood, Pamela R; Winn, Bryan J
PURPOSE/OBJECTIVE:Despite multiple studies regarding modes of eyebrow measurement and movement over time, the lateral aspect of the brow has been relatively ignored in the literature. Therefore, we arranged a study of the most lateral aspect of the eyebrow; in doing so, we hoped to ascertain the most practical line or angle of measurement. METHODS:In this cross-sectional study, adults age 18 years and older with no history of congenital or acquired periorbital or orbital pathology or surgery, brow tattooing or heavy plucking, phthisis, or strabismus were measured using a combination of in-office metrics and computer analysis. Subjects were asked to identify their ethnicity and country of origin. Models of age, gender, and ethnicity were created. RESULTS:One thousand twenty-four subjects were included (1,944 eyes). Measurements of nasal ala to lateral brow (NALB), lateral brow plumb line (LBPL; the vertical line between the tail of the brow and a horizontal line extending from the lateral canthus), and angle from the midbrow to the lateral brow tail showed statistically significant decline over time. The angle and LBPL varied mostly by ethnicity. The angle narrowed approximately 3° per 20 years, while the LBPL fell approximately 2.5 mm per 20 years. The NALB varied most by age and fell approximately 3 mm per 20 years. CONCLUSIONS:The lateral tail of the brow descends with age. Measurements of its location and rate of change vary between genders and within ethnic groups. Two easily measured values-NALB and LBPL-can be used for preoperative planning and postoperative documentation.
