Objective: The aim of this study is to analysis the correlation between nasal and eye symptom and psychological status in patients with allergic rhinitis, in order to provide a basis for improving the mental health of patients. Method:The nasal symptom score scale, eye symptom score scale and Kessler 10 were used in the study, and the survey data was analyzed. Result:At least one of 147 patients had a nasal symptom at a rate of 100% (147/147); at least one ocular symptom was 86.4% (127/147). Of the 147 patients, 29 had K10 scores more than 21.The nasal symptom including nasal congestion, itching, eye pain, eye swelling, tearing positively correlated with K10 total score. Conclusion: The clinical staffs must pay attention to the mental health status of AR patients, strengthen the assessment of nasal symptoms, eye symptoms and mental status, and give targeted intervention to patients with poor mental health.

- Use of the Bispectral Index to Predict Eye Position of Children during General Anesthesia. [Journal Article]
- KJKorean J Ophthalmol 2018 May 15
- CONCLUSIONS: We found that high BIS values were correlated with low levels of anesthetic concentration and high eye position, suggesting that BIS monitoring may be useful for predicting eye position during anesthesia. Particular attention must be given to eye position during ophthalmic surgery. Anesthesia depth can be maintained by assuring that the BIS value remains below 65.

Microvascular decompression (MVD) is widely accepted as an effective surgical method to treat trigeminal neuralgia (TN), but the risks of morbidity and mortality must be considered. We experienced a case of acute angle-closure glaucoma attack following MVD for TN in an elderly patient, considered to be caused by lateral positioning during and after the surgery. A 79-year-old female underwent MVD for right TN in the left lateral decubitus position, and TN disappeared after the surgery. Postoperatively, the patient tended to maintain the left lateral decubitus position to prevent wound contact with the pillow, even after ambulation. Two days after the surgery, she complained of persistent left ocular pain with visual disturbance. The left pupil was dilated with only light perception, and the intraocular pressure (IOP) was 44 mmHg. Acute angle-closure glaucoma attack was diagnosed. After drip infusion of mannitol, emergent laser iridotomy was performed. The corrected visual acuity recovered with normalization of IOP (14 mmHg). The subsequent clinical course was uneventful and she was discharged from our hospital. The left lateral positioning during and after the surgery was considered to have contributed to increase IOP of the eye on the dependent side, which resulted in acute angle-closure glaucoma attack. The potential pathology is difficult to assess preoperatively, but patient management should always consider the increased possibility of this condition with age.

A 30-year-old European man was admitted to our centre complaining about severe pain of the right eye (OD) and right part of the face, redness and no vision of the OD. He had an 18-year history of secondary to Sturge-Weber syndrome glaucoma, 6-month history of red eye and 1-week history of pain in OD. The best-corrected visual acuity was no light perception OD and 20/20 OS. Intraocular pressure was 36 mm Hg OD. Examination revealed endophthalmitis, Sturge-Weber syndrome-associated glaucoma and complicated cataract of OD.Unfortunately, no prescribed treatment helped this patient, so evisceration of OD was performed. During the evisceration, a subretinal 20 mm in width and 22 mm in length osseous tissue, partially vascularised, was removed surgically and was sent to the histological laboratory. Histopathologically, there were data of active inflammatory process, retinal detachment due to huge subretinal osseous metaplasia, gliosis and retinal pigment epithelial hyperplasia, and druses with ossification.

An 8-year-old male presented to the pediatric emergency department with subjective fever, blurry vision, and left eye pain. On physical examination, there was mild left lower lid erythema and a subtle left eye elevation deficit. Computed tomography demonstrated preseptal soft tissue swelling without orbital involvement; however, there was varying amounts of paranasal sinus opacification. Despite the negative scan, a diagnosis of orbital cellulitis associated with sinusitis was made and treatment with intravenous antibiotics was initiated. A magnetic resonance imaging performed subsequently revealed orbital fat stranding and inferior rectus enlargement and enhancement near the orbital apex, indicating the presence of orbital cellulitis. This case demonstrates the utility of magnetic resonance imaging when initial computed tomography imaging is negative in patients with concern for orbital cellulitis.
- An Unusual Presentation of Esthesioneuroblastoma in a Young Pregnant Female. [Journal Article]
- OOOcul Oncol Pathol 2018; 4(3):192-195
- CONCLUSIONS: This case highlights the progressive and fatal course of olfactory neuroblastoma. As it can present with the complex symptoms related to ocular and nasal sites, timely referral of patients presenting with visual symptoms along with nasal involvement (frequent epistaxis) to otorhinolaryngologists is very important.
