  • [Establishment of standardized diagnosis and treatment of eyelid sebaceous carcinoma in China]. [Journal Article]
    Zhonghua Yan Ke Za Zhi 2018; 54(7):481-483Li DM
  • Eyelid sebaceous carcinoma is a malignant tumor originating from Meibomian glands, Zeis glands, and other glands surrounding hair follicles. It is the second most common eyelid malignancy, following basal cell carcinoma, in China. Considering its diversified clinical manifestations and strong tendency for recurrence and metastasis, standardized cancer staging, surgical excision with frozen sectio…
  • StatPearls: Chalazion [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Jordan Gary A. GA University of Tennessee Beier Kevin K University of Tennessee - Murfreesboro BOOK
  • Chalazia (plural of chalazion), are the most common inflammatory lesions of the eyelid. They are typically slowly enlarging, non-tender eyelid nodules. A deep chalazion is caused by inflammation of a tarsal meibomian gland. A superficial chalazion is caused by inflammation of a Zeis gland. Chalazia are typically benign and self-limiting, though they can develop chronic complications.[1] Recurrent…
  • Intraoperative Adjunctive Mitomycin C and Cryotherapy for Recurrent Conjunctival Papillary Sebaceous Carcinoma. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Ophthalmol 2018 Jan-Apr; 9(1):221-226Monai N, Tanabu R, … Nakazawa M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although sebaceous carcinoma usually originates from the meibomian gland cells or less frequently from the Zeis or Moll gland cells, it rarely occurs from bulbar or palpebral conjunctival cells. Because sebaceous carcinoma sometimes shows a pagetoid growth pattern, it can recur even after en bloc resection with a negative study for tumor cells at the surgical margins. The recurrent sebaceous carcinoma cells showed an intraepithelial growth pattern. Considering this superficial growth property, it may be effective to apply intraoperative mitomycin C and cryotherapy treatment combined with surgical resection to reduce the possibility of recurrence of presumed conjunctival papillary sebaceous carcinoma, although mitomycin C alone seems to be insufficient as an adjunctive treatment.
  • Acupuncture for acute hordeolum. [Review]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2017; 2:CD011075Cheng K, Law A, … Lao L
  • CONCLUSIONS: Low-certainty evidence suggests that acupuncture with or without conventional treatments may provide short-term benefits for treating acute hordeolum when compared with conventional treatments alone. The certainty of the evidence was low to very low mainly due to small sample sizes, inadequate allocation concealment, lack of masking of the outcome assessors, inadequate or unclear randomization method, and a high or unreported number of dropouts. All RCTs were conducted in China, which may limit their generalizability to non-Chinese populations.Because no RCTs included a valid sham acupuncture control, we cannot rule out a potential expectation/placebo effect associated with acupuncture. As resolution is based on clinical observation, the outcome could be influenced by the observer's knowledge of the assigned treatment. Adverse effects of acupuncture were reported sparsely in the included RCTs, and, when reported, were rare. RCTs with better methodology, longer follow-up, and which are conducted among other populations are warranted to provide more general evidence regarding the benefit of acupuncture to treat acute hordeolum.
  • Sebaceous Carcinoma of the Ocular Region: The 2014 Professor Winifred Mao Lecture. [Review]
    Asia Pac J Ophthalmol (Phila) 2015 Jul-Aug; 4(4):221-7Shields JA, Saktanasate J, … Shields CL
  • Sebaceous carcinoma is a malignancy arising in the periocular region that can lead to blindness and tumor-related metastases. This study is a review of published literature and personal experience. This malignancy can arise from the sebaceous units in the tarsus (meibomian glands), in association with the cilia (Zeis glands), in the brow, and in the caruncle. There is a tendency for diffuse intra…
  • Unusual Eyelid Dermal Keratinous Cysts of Pilosebaceous Origin. [Case Reports]
    Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2016 Mar-Apr; 32(2):93-7Jakobiec FA, Stagner AM, … Yoon MK
  • CONCLUSIONS: Histopathologic and immunohistochemical studies can separate these 2 disparate new eyelid entities from the more common keratinous epidermoid cyst of the surface epidermis or the upper hair follicle (CK7, CK14, and CK17). Simple local excision of the anterior lamella of the eyelid is appropriate for the sebaceous duct keratinous cysts of Zeis, but the multiple vellus hair cysts are comparatively refractory to treatment. Both superficial types of cysts are totally unrelated to the deeper Meibomian keratinous cyst, which is not associated with a hair structure and is situated in the tarsus rather than the dermis of the eyelids.
  • Anatomy of secretory glands in the eyelid and conjunctiva: a photographic review. [Review]
    Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2013 May-Jun; 29(3):215-9Takahashi Y, Watanabe A, … Kakizaki H
  • The eyelid and conjunctiva are main targets in ophthalmic plastic surgery. Although dry eyes are known to occasionally occur after ophthalmic plastic surgery, little attention has been paid to the secretory glands in the eyelid and conjunctiva. The secretary glands in the eyelid and conjunctiva contain the main lacrimal gland, accessory lacrimal glands of Wolfring and Krause, goblet cells, ciliar…
  • Recurrent sebaceous gland carcinoma of eyelid previously diagnosed as basal cell carcinoma: case report. [Case Reports]
    Am J Otolaryngol 2011 Nov-Dec; 32(6):620-3Kan LW, Leu YS, … Wu CH
  • Sebaceous gland carcinoma (SGC) of the eyelid is a highly malignant neoplasm that arises from the meibomian glands, glands of Zeis, and sebaceous glands of the skin. The characteristics of this disease are high recurrence rate, significant metastatic potential, and notable mortality rate, which are quite different from basal cell carcinoma (BCC). We report the case of a 37-year-old woman with the…
