  • Langerhans-Cell Histiocytosis

    Orbital psuedotumor represents the second most common inflammatory disorder of the orbit in childhood and may present with unilateral or bilateral proptosis of explosive onset[] […] antigen presenting function of the dendritic cells would remain unknown for more than a century. [13] Differential diagnosis Orbital cellulitis is the most common cause of proptosis[]

  • Melkersson-Rosenthal Syndrome

    Fundus retinal exam, optic nerves and slit lamp exams were normal bilaterally.[] , intraocular pressures of 21 mm Hg in each eye, normal color vision, and no proptosis by Hertel measurements.[] […] visual acuity of 20/60 OD and 20/20 left eye (OS), mild metamorphopsia by Amsler grid testing, equal pupils with no afferent pupillary defect, full extraocular movement bilaterally[]

  • Rhinocerebral Mucormycosis

    IMPORTANCE: Rhinocerebral mucormycosis is extremely difficult to treat. Approximately 70% of patients are poorly controlled diabetics, and many of the remainder are immunocompromised as a consequence of cytotoxic drugs, burn injuries, or end-stage renal disease.

    The antineutrophilic cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitides are a group of rare systemic diseases. The past several years have seen major therapeutic advances in the treatment of granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) and microscopic polyangiitis (MPA). The success rate in induction of remission is[…][]

  • Pilocytic Astrocytoma

    Supratentorial juvenile pilocytic astrocytomas On T1-weighted images, the signal intensity is generally low; on T2-weighted images, the signal intensity is increased. Enhancement patterns are similar to those depicted on CT scans. MRI images of juvenile pilocytic astrocytomas are provided below. Juvenile pilocytic[…][]
