  • Multidrug-Resistant Escherichia coli Canaliculitis. [Journal Article]
    Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg. 2020 Feb 24 [Online ahead of print]Bansal O, Bothra N, … Ali MJ
  • Escherichia coli canaliculitis is an exceptionally rare organism to cause primary canaliculitis. The present case describes unilateral canaliculitis refractory to conventional therapy with a significant history of recurrent culture proven E. coli urinary tract infection. Microbiological analysis revealed E. coli bacilli and histological examination showed goblet cell metaplasia, subepithelial ede…
  • Characteristics of lacrimal passage diseases by 80-MHz ultrasound biomicroscopy: an observational study. [Journal Article]
    Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol. 2020 Feb; 258(2):403-410.Yan X, Xiang N, … Luo B
  • CONCLUSIONS: The 80-MHz UBM is a new non-invasive technique that can be used for clear visualization of the fine structure of the lacrimal canaliculus, including the mucosal epithelium and subepithelial elastic fiber layer. The use of this approach will improve understanding of the hierarchical structure of the lacrimal canaliculi and provide a comprehensive basis for diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and treatment plan in patients with lacrimal passage diseases.
  • Pediatric Canaliculitis: A Case Report [Journal Article]
    Turk J Ophthalmol. 2019 Apr 30; 49(2):102-105.Eraslan Yusufoğlu E, Güngör Kobat S
  • Canaliculitis is a rare disease that relapses when not properly diagnosed and treated. It usually occurs in middle-age and advanced age. It is extremely rare in children and infants. A healthy 12-year-old girl presented with lower eyelid swelling and watery discharge in her right eye. During the last 2 years, the patient had been examined several times for the same complaints but there was no imp…
  • Outcomes of canaliculotomy in recalcitrant canaliculitis. [Journal Article]
    Saudi J Ophthalmol. 2019 Jan-Mar; 33(1):46-51.Alam MS, Poonam NS, Mukherjee B
  • CONCLUSIONS: Canaliculotomy is a safe and effective method for management of recalcitrant canaliculitis with a success rate of 85%. Presence of concretions was associated with higher risk of recurrence in our study.
  • [Punctal and canalicular plugs: Indications, efficacy and safety (French translation of the article)]. [Review]
    J Fr Ophtalmol. 2019 Apr; 42(4):404-414.Best AL, Labetoulle M, … Rousseau A
  • Lacrimal occlusion with punctal or canalicular plugs have been used to treat dry eye disease for more than 40 years. Indeed, punctal plugs constitute a safe and effective tool to retain the natural tear film and prolong the effect of tear substitutes. A wide variety of plugs is available, differing in their design, location (punctal versus canalicular) and their resorbability. There indications h…
  • Characterizing Congenital Double Punctum Anomalies: Clinical, Endoscopic, and Imaging Findings. [Journal Article]
    Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg. 2019 Nov/Dec; 35(6):549-552.Timlin HM, Keane PA, Ezra DG
  • CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that the underlying canalicular anomalies are varied and that the clinical manifestation is also heterogenous. Optical coherence tomography imaging suggests that the medial of the 2 puncta is the more morphologically abnormal one, with dacryocystography and canalicular endoscopy demonstrating different accessory canaliculi lengths.Double puncta coexist with a range of other nasolacrimal pathologies. OCT suggests that the medial of the 2 double puncta is the abnormal one, with DCG and endoscopy demonstrating a range of accessory canaliculus lengths.

  • Acute Sterile Canaliculitis: A Case Report and Review of the Literature. [Case Reports]
    Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg. 2019 Jan/Feb; 35(1):e8-e9.Li E, Distefano A, Sohrab M
  • A 53-year-old male developed secondary canaliculitis after undergoing nasolacrimal intubation with a silicone stent. Negative cultures, symptoms refractory to antibiotics, and rapid resolution after stent removal suggest an immune reaction as the mechanism of canaliculitis. This case raises awareness of noninfectious hypersensitivity or hypersensitivity-like reactions as a potential acute or suba…
  • Chronic lacrimal canaliculitis - the answer to a three-year history of red eye. [Case Reports]
    Arq Bras Oftalmol. 2018 Jul-Aug; 81(4):341-343.Basílio AL, Cabugueira A, … Magriço A
  • Chronic lacrimal canaliculitis is a rare infection of the lacrimal system, and can lead to misdiagnosis due to its overlapping presentation to other common entities. The authors report a case of lacrimal canaliculitis with a three-year history of recurrent unilateral red eye and mucopurulent discharge. Here, we describe the clinical course, surgical details, and microbial analysis of canaliculiti…
  • Analysis of SmartPlug Insertion-Related Complications. [Case Reports]
    Eye Contact Lens. 2018 Nov; 44 Suppl 2:S333-S337.Huang CJ, Lu CJ, … Chen WL
  • CONCLUSIONS: SmartPlug-related complications, including canaliculitis and granuloma pyogenica, required long-term follow-up. Most of the complications can be cured by lacrimal irrigation of antibiotics.
  • Actinomycetes canaliculitis complicating congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction in an infant. [Case Reports]
    Indian J Ophthalmol. 2018 04; 66(4):574-577.Nair AG, Potdar NA, … Shinde CA
  • Actinomyces israelii is a Gram-positive anaerobic organism commonly associated with canaliculitis in adults. Pediatric canaliculitis is relatively rare, especially in infancy. We report the case of an 11-month-old boy who presented with co-existing canaliculitis and congenital nasolacrimal obstruction. The presenting signs included epiphora, discharge, conjunctival congestion, and matting of lash…
  • A case with corneal perforation due to bacterial concretion derived from lacrimal canaliculitis. [Case Reports]
    Am J Ophthalmol Case Rep. 2018 Mar; 9:116-118.Ishikawa S, Kato N
  • CONCLUSIONS: Both lacrimal canaliculitis and OCP can cause corneal perforation, and adherence of bacterial concretion onto the cornea is very rare. However, once it occurs, corneal perforation can rapidly follow. OCP sometimes causes corneal epithelial damage, which may influence adherence to concretion. Canaliculitis in patients with OCP should be managed carefully.
