  • Clinical and histopathological information useful for prognosis was examined, such as anterior border localization, size and shape of the tumor, associated ocular pathology, cell type and degree of extraocular extension.
  • Four cases had neovascular glaucoma, two pseudo-phacolytic glaucoma and the remaining case had invasion of the anterior chamber angle.
  • All cases were unresponsive to medical treatment for glaucoma, due to the unsuspected tumor they harbored.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In patients presenting with the association of unilateral glaucoma and asymmetric cataract, it is crucial to perform imaging studies, such as ultrasound, in order to rule out the presence of an intraocular tumor, and to achieve an early diagnosis, improving the patient's prognosis and the morbidity of treatments.

  • [Title] Iris and anterior chamber angle neovascularization after iodine 125 brachytherapy for uveal melanoma.
  • PURPOSE: Iris neovascularization (INV) and anterior chamber angle neovascularization after radiotherapy for uveal melanoma may lead to neovascular glaucoma and enucleation.
  • However, neovascularization of the anterior ocular segment may respond favorably to treatment with panretinal photocoagulation.
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate the frequency, interval to development, and predisposing factors of anterior ocular segment neovascularization following iodine 125 (I125) brachytherapy for uveal melanoma.
  • Risk factors displaying the stronger correlation with INV were greater maximal tumor height (P<0.01), greater tumor vascularity (P<0.01), and disinsertion of horizontal rectus muscles (P = 0.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: After I125 brachytherapy for choroidal melanoma, INV developed in 23% of eyes and was correlated with larger tumor size, greater tumor vascularity, and disinsertion of a horizontal rectus muscle.

  • [Title] Cerebellopontine angle tumors causing hemifacial spasm: types, incidence, and mechanism in nine reported cases and literature review.
  • OBJECTIVE: Although hemifacial spasm is usually caused by vascular compression around the root exit zone of the facial nerve, it is sometimes brought on by a cerebellopontine angle tumor.
  • We reviewed and analyzed data from past experience with hemifacial spasm induced by cerebellopontine angle tumors.
  • METHODS: Nine patients of a total 2,050, who had presented with hemifacial spasms associated with cerebellopontine angle tumors between 1986 and 2009, were reviewed.
  • With respect to the pathogenesis of hemifacial spasms, offending vessels were found in six patients, tumor encasement of the facial nerve in one patient, hypervascular tumor compression of the facial nerve without offending vessels in one patient, and a huge tumor compressing the brain stem and, thus, contralateral facial nerve compression in one patient.
  • Hemifacial spasm was resolved in seven patients, whereas in two patients with a vestibular schwannoma and an epidermoid tumor, it improved transiently and then recurred in a month.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Each type of tumor had different characteristics with respect to the induction of hemifacial spasm; therefore, it is suggested that neurosurgeons, who are planning surgeries both for the purposes of relieving hemifacial spasm and removal of cerebellopontine angle tumor, should thoroughly prepare appropriate approaches and specific dissecting strategies according to each causative lesion.

  • Semithin sections of all ab interno trabeculectomy samples showed full-thickness removal of trabeculum segments, with Schlemm's canal lumen opening into the anterior chamber and apparent preservation of the adjacent structures.
  • On ultrathin sections of samples that had ab interno trabeculectomy before enucleation, the endothelium lining the outer wall of Schlemm's canal and other angle components showed intact ultrastructural features.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Observations confirm that ab interno trabeculectomy causes direct communication between Schlemm's canal lumen and the anterior chamber in vivo and immediately after enucleation during the early postoperative period.
  • The absence of an evident inflammatory reaction in the examined case should be considered with caution because of possible tumor-induced immune suppression.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Diffuse anterior retinoblastoma without retinal involvement.
  • PURPOSE: To present a unique case of an 8.5-year-old child with unilateral, anterior, pseudouveitis.
  • He was found to have unilateral, invasive, small blue cell tumor of the anterior segment that was diagnosed as diffuse infiltrating retinoblastoma despite lack of retinal involvement on fundus examination or histopathologic analysis.
  • INTERVENTION: The patient was treated with topical prednisolone acetate 1% and oral prednisone with no improvement in anterior chamber reaction.
  • The patient underwent fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of anterior chamber fluid, the results of which were consistent with a primitive neuroectodermal neoplasm, either retinoblastoma or medulloepithelioma.
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The patient is alive and tumor free with follow-up of 5 years.
  • RESULTS: Microscopic examination demonstrated cells similar to those seen on the FNAB infiltrating the iris stroma, trabecular meshwork, Schlemm's canal, and the inner portion of sclera in the region of the angle.
  • Serial sections of the entire globe were performed to determine the origin of the tumor.
  • No retinal involvement was identified, and tumor was not seen to arise from the ciliary epithelium.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This patient represents a case of diffuse anterior retinoblastoma with lack of obvious retinal involvement.
  • Although the patient lacked a retinal focus, he is alive at 5 years without evidence of recurrence of tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • INTERVENTIONS: Over the years, the right eye was irradiated twice and underwent trans-pars plana vitrectomy, transscleral cryocoagulation, argon laser photocoagulation of tumors and their feeder vessels, extracapsular cataract extraction with posterior chamber lens implantation, and neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser treatment of after-cataract in the form of Elschnig's pearls.
  • RESULTS: The eye finally had to be removed 12 years later due to tumor recurrences and seeding, pseudohypopyon, and elevated intraocular pressure.
  • Histopathology showed microcellular retinoblastoma cells in the anterior chamber angle and trabecular meshwork without subconjunctival extension and in the nasal ciliary body, pars plana, internal limiting membrane, and optic nerve head anterior to the cribriform plate.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This report shows that retinoblastoma patients may have tumor growth in their fellow eye 25 years after the first eye and also that Elschnig's after-cataract pearls still can arise after irradiation of a lens with 45 Gy.

  • The aim of the study was to estimate a cochlear efferent system in the group of patents with cerebello-pontine angle tumor (CPA).
  • The research was also conducted on the influence of tumor dimensions, age, sex, and the hearing level in tonal audiometry on the size of the efferent effect.
  • The research was carried out on a group of 14 patients with cerebello-pontine angle tumor and on an appropriate fourteen-person test group.
  • Having our results analyzed we were able to state that, compared with the test group, in the group of patients with CPA tumor significant reduce suppressions of otoacoustic emission response during CAS occurred both in an ear on the tumor side and in an ear on the healthy side.
  • However, the tumor dimensions, sex, and the hearing level in tonal audiometry seemed not to affect significantly the size of the efferent effect.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The probability of hearing loss during cerebellopontine angle (CPA) surgery can be reduced by using brainstem auditory evoked potential (BAEP) intraoperative monitoring (IOM).
  • When patients with CPA tumor were excluded, a significantly higher number of patients in Group 4 had hearing loss.
  • Analysis of the patients with CPA tumor showed no difference in the frequency of hearing loss in any of the groups; even a large number (50%) of Group 1 patients had hearing impairment.
  • For non-cerebellopontine angle tumor surgery, hearing loss occurs usually only with permanent loss of wave V; much smaller changes may be important in cerebellopontine angle tumor surgery.

  • [Title] Acute angle-closure glaucoma from spontaneous massive hemorrhagic retinal detachment.
  • PURPOSE: To report a case of acute angle-closure glaucoma resulting from spontaneous hemorrhagic retinal detachment.
  • The left anterior chamber depth was shallow and gonioscopy of the left eye showed a closed angle.
  • In comparison, the right anterior chamber depth was normal and showed a wide, open angle.
  • RESULTS: The ocular pathology specimen showed that a large subretinal hemorrhage caused retinal detachment and pushed displaced the lens-iris diaphragm, resulting in secondary angle-closure glaucoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Prolonged anticoagulant therapy may cause hemorrhagic retinal detachment and secondary angle-closure glaucoma.
  • If medical therapy fails to relieve pain or if there is suspicion of an intraocular tumor, enucleation should be considered as a therapeutic option.

  • The leading mechanisms are direct invasion of the chamber angle by tumour cells, rubeosis iridis, and forward displacement of the iris-lens-diaphragm with (lens induced) pupillary block.
  • As intraocular tumours may have pressure-lowering effects too, eyes bearing a tumour may also be hypotonic or normotonic inspite of a "glaucomatous chamber angle morphology".
  • The therapy of the tumour-induced glaucomas is hardly validated and generally follows the treatment of the other secondary glaucomas.
  • However, filtration procedures are contraindicated when a malignant tumour is diagnosed or suspected.
  • Because of the progress of tumour therapy with salvation of eyes which had to be enucleated in former times and prolongation of survival in some tumour entities (like Non Hodgkin's lymphoma and metastases) the significance of tumour-induced glaucomas will probably further increase in the future.

  • Due to enlargement of the pigmented iris mass and cell deposits in the chamber angle, a ciliary body ring melanoma was presumed and the eye enucleated.
  • Tumor seeding through the trabeculectomy site into the bleb and then via conjunctival lymphatic vessels might be the crucial factor for this pathway of metastases.

  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: To evaluate the function of MOC system click evoked otoacoustic emissions (CEOAEs) with and without continuous contralateral broadband noise (BBN) stimulation were recorded in 14 patients with multiple sclerosis, 16 patients with unilateral cerebello-pontine angle tumor and control group matched for age and gender.
  • CONCLUSIONS: To conclude, assessment of efferent suppression may be a useful addition to the battery test employed in the investigation of multiple sclerosis and cerebello-pontine angle tumors.
