Lacrimal gland biopsy and dry eye syndrome


, : Lacrimal gland biopsy and dry eye syndrome. Journal Francais d'Ophtalmologie 3(2): 91-95

The dry-eye syndrome in 31 human cases of lacrimal gland biopsy is described. Several tests exist for diagnosis; Schirmer's and Rose Bengal's tests are most common. Six types of histologic lesions are emphasized. The contrast between the functional signs and the anatomopathology are essential; the keratoconjunctivitis sicca and rheumatism association correspond with an important lesion of the lacrimal gland in 80% of cases. Gougerot's disease is favored in half the cases.

This randomized, double-blind, noninferiority study was designed to demonstrate that a single 2.0-g oral dose of a novel microsphere formulation of azithromycin was at least as effective as 7 days of levofloxacin, 500 mg/day, in the treatment of a...
