  • Association between symptoms of xerostomia and dry eye in older people. [Journal Article]
    Cont Lens Anterior Eye 2019Wang MTM, Thomson WM, Craig JP
  • CONCLUSIONS: Symptoms of xerostomia and dry eye were relatively common in the cohort of older adult participants. The potentially debilitating implications of - and positive association between - the two types of sicca symptoms support the routine evaluation of xerostomia symptoms as part of the assessment of dry eye patients, and vice versa.
  • Total external ophthalmoplegia: First clinical manifestation of Sjögren's syndrome. [Journal Article]
    Strabismus 2019; :1-5Singh A, Mahesh M, … Kumar B
  • Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is an autoimmune disease causing destruction of the exocrine glands secondary to lymphocytic infiltration. Common clinical symptoms of SS are xerostomia, xerophthalmia, myalgia, arthritis, and vasculitis. Neurological symptoms may precede the diagnosis of SS by up to 2 years in about 80% of patients. A 28-year-old female presented to us with complaints of horizontal and ve…
  • Chronic eyelid edema and xerophthalmia secondary to periorbital hyaluronic acid filler injection. [Journal Article]
    J Cosmet Dermatol 2019Khalil K, Arnold N, Seiger E
  • CONCLUSIONS: Familiarity with potential adverse events is arguably the most important aspect of treating patients with HA filler. The anatomy of the orbit and lacrimal system are important to keep in mind when evaluating symptoms related to possible long-term complications of retained filler injections. Reporting this case should raise awareness about this potential adverse event and further explain the delicate anatomy of the periorbital area.
  • Systematic review of oral and craniofacial findings in patients with Fabry disease or Pompe disease. [Review]
    Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019Benz K, Hahn P, … Jackowski J
  • Fabry disease and Pompe disease are rare lysosomal storage disorders that belong to a heterogeneous group of more than 200 distinct inborn metabolic diseases. Mutations followed by loss of function of enzymes or transporters that are localised in the acidic environment of the lysosome may result in degradation of many substrates, such as glycosaminoglycans, glycosphingolipids, glycogen, cholester…
  • Pulmonary and Bronchiolar Involvement in Sjogren's Syndrome. [Journal Article]
    Semin Respir Crit Care Med 2019; 40(2):235-254Chung A, Wilgus ML, … Lynch JP
  • Sjogren's syndrome (SS) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by mononuclear cells (principally lymphocytes) infiltrating exocrine glands (e.g., salivary and lacrimal glands), leading to destruction of exocrine epithelial cells and dryness of mucosal surfaces. Cardinal symptoms are dry eyes (xerophthalmia) and dry mouth (xerostomia). Extraglandular sites are affected in 30 to 40% of cases…
