    […] hypotension Normal pressure hydrocephalus Pseudotumor cerebri Traumatic Brain Injury General Conditions Arthritis Autism spectrum disorder Bacterial Meningitis Bell's Palsy Blepharospasm[cedars-sinai.edu] […] dural arteriovenous fistulae (DAVF) are complex vascular malformations consisting of a pathological shunt located between meningeal arteries and drainage to dural venous sinuses[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There are major venous channels within the dura mater called dural sinuses. The dural sinuses collect blood from veins of the brain.[radiology.ucla.edu]

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

    Blepharospasm is a condition involving abnormal involuntary spasms of the eyelids.[brandywineeye.com] A computed tomographic scan of the paranasal sinuses and orbits showed thickened mucosa of the sinuses but was otherwise unremarkable.[nejm.org] The primary infection occurs in the paranasal sinuses, with direct invasion into the orbital cavity [ 7 ].[bmcinfectdis.biomedcentral.com]

  • Anesthetic

    Intermittent abnormal movements included oculogyric crisis; tongue protrusion; blepharospasm; and oro-mandibular dystonia consisting of risus sardonicus, jaw opening, and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] hyperlactatemia (lactate 7.0 mmol/L), difficulty with serum laboratory interpretation, and a non-contrast brain magnetic resonance imaging showing high signal in the dural venous sinuses[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Botulism

    In this study, we report 4 patients who developed iatrogenic botulism after receiving therapeutic doses of BT/A for spasticity and blepharospasm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sometimes lesions are not apparent and the presence of deep-seated abscess or sinusitis should be considered.[orpha.net] It is also used to treat cervical dystonia, blepharospasm, strabismus, spasticity, chronic migraine, detrusor overactivity and hyperhidrosis.[calpoison.org]

  • Schwartz-Jampel Syndrome

    The blepharospasm and eyelid alterations caused by Schwartz-Jampel syndrome should be treated to provide functional and cosmetic improvements.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] patient with Schwartz-Jampel syndrome, CT and MR imaging revealed basilar invagination, platybasia, Chiari I malformation, hyperpneumatized mastoids with intramastoid dural sinuses[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 6-year-old boy with Schwartz-Jampel syndrome and severe myotonia-induced blepharospasm and ptosis did not respond to botulinum toxin A injections in the orbicularis muscle[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • SUNCT Syndrome

    Rarely flushing, tachypnea, photophobia, blepharospasm, ipsilateral myosis, nausea, ptosis, conjunctival injection, polyuria, and dilated vessels on the eyelid may be observed[annsaudimed.net] We describe a case of symptomatic SUNCT syndrome caused by sinusitis, which showed typical features of SUNCT syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In a review of 21 patients, 5 had a past medical history of sinusitis, but the causal role of this association remained uncertain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemifacial Spasm

    We present a patient with a facial movement disorder that has characteristics of both blepharospasm and bilateral asynchronous hemifacial spasm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Brain MRI Scan revealed extensive pan-sinusitis and mild bilateral mastoiditis. She responded well to intravenous ceftriaxone therapy and the hemifacial spasm resolved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Observational study of incobotulinumtoxinA for cervical dystonia or blepharospasm (XCiDaBLE): interim results for the first 170 subjects with blepharospasm.[link.springer.com]

  • Laryngotracheitis

    It occurs as outbreaks, characterized by ocular discharge, blepharospasm and pain. Underrunning of the conjunctiva leads to complications in a few cases.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] 10.1084/jem.125.3.409 Published March 1, 1967 Abstract Infectious laryngotracheitis can be produced in chickens as an experimental model of severe nonfatal rhinitis and sinusitis[jem.rupress.org] For surgical management of chronic sinusitis, see Chronic Sinusitis .[emedicine.medscape.com]
