Unilateral estropia after enucleation in infancy

, : Unilateral estropia after enucleation in infancy. American Journal of Ophthalmology 100(1): 96-99

Five patients developed esotropia in the remaining eye after unilateral enucleation in the first few weeks to months of life. Esotropia was associated with a face turn toward the opposite side and abduction nystagmus with a null point in extreme adduction. Experience with these patients supports the reflexogenic theory for the development of a type of congenital-infantile esotropia. An intact globe-ocular muscle relationship, even in a blind eye, may have a stabilizing effect on the fellow eye in the first few weeks to months of life, and this should be considered before enucleation is done.

A novel mutation in the cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS) gene (a 68-bp insertion in the coding region of exon 8: 844ins68) was recently described, but its prevalence in different human populations is unknown. We analyzed the prevalence of the 68-...

One of the mechanisms by which activated T cells die is activation-induced cell death (AICD). This pathway requires persistent stimulation via the TCR and engagement of death receptors. We found that TCR stimulation led to transient nuclear accumu...

Between 1982 and 1986 51 patients were treated with ciclosporin a (CSA) to prevent graft versus host disease (GvHD) after bone marrow transplantation (BMT). Major side effects of the drug were tremor, hypertension, hepatotoxicity and nephrotoxicit...
