Lacrimal drainage obstruction from lacrimal sac infiltration by lymphocytic neoplasia

, : Lacrimal drainage obstruction from lacrimal sac infiltration by lymphocytic neoplasia. American Journal of Ophthalmology 101(2): 242-245

In two patients, a 52-year-old women with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and a 71-year-old women with malignant lymphoma, lymphocytic neoplasia infiltrated the lacrimal sac, obstructed the lacrimal drainage system, and resulted in acute or chronic dacryocystitis. The prognosis of lymphocytic neoplasia is sufficiently good that definitive treatment is usually warranted. Both patients benefitted from dacryoscystorhinostomy with placement of silicone tubing in concert with management of the neoplasia and hemoglobin level.

In slope stability analysis, the limit equilibrium method is usually used to calculate the safety factor of slope based on Mohr-Coulomb criterion. However, Mohr-Coulomb criterion is restricted to the description of rock mass. To overcome its short...

The relation of heading to productivity of Rhodes grass (Chloris gayana Kunth) sown in the spaces between rows of maize (Zea mays L.). Crops of (a) Rhodes grass and (b) crab grass [Digitaria adscendens] grown between maize rows were compared. Yield of (b) was less than that of (a) beneath the maize canopy. After the maize harvest the tillering of crab grass increased after the 1s...
