Summary of "Orbital Disorders in Childhood."

Orbital disorders in childhood include various pathologies. Whereas neoplastic lesions and structural anomalies (which frequently cause strabismus) predominate in newborns and infants, vascular lesions become more common in toddlers. Inflammatory lesions are less common than in adults and affect mostly older children and adolescents. The most common orbital mass in infants and young children is a dermoid cyst, a benign lesion.Rhabdomyosarcoma as the most common primary orbital malignancy and neuroblastoma as a common metastasis to the orbit should be considered in children with new onset orbital space-occupying lesions.Capillary hemangioma and lymphangioma (lymphatic malformation) are relatively common vascular orbital lesions in children. Novel therapeutic options include systemic betablockers for capillary hemangioma and sirolimus for lymphangioma. In contrast to adults, external signs of an orbital fracture may be absent or mild in children. If ocular motility restriction after orbital trauma is present in a child without obvious external signs, a "white-eye blowout fracture" of the orbit should be considered and requires prompt surgical repair if present.Inflammatory disorders of the orbit such as thyroid-related orbitopathy and idiopathic orbital inflammation are uncommon in young children and occur more frequently in adolescents. In young children, amblyopia may complicate any orbital disease. It should be treated using part-time occlusion or pharmacologic penalisation of the fellow eye and the underlying cause should be addressed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Those psychiatric disorders usually first diagnosed in infancy, childhood, or adolescence. These disorders can also be first diagnosed during other life stages.

Mental disorders related to feeding and eating that are usually diagnosed in infancy or early childhood.

An obsolete concept, historically used for childhood mental disorders thought to be a form of schizophrenia.

A nonspecific tumor-like inflammatory lesion in the ORBIT of the eye. It is usually composed of mature LYMPHOCYTES; PLASMA CELLS; MACROPHAGES; LEUKOCYTES with varying degrees of FIBROSIS. Orbital pseudotumors are often associated with inflammation of the extraocular muscles (ORBITAL MYOSITIS) or inflammation of the lacrimal glands (DACRYOADENITIS).

Rare congenital metabolism disorders of the urea cycle. The disorders are due to mutations that result in complete (neonatal onset) or partial (childhood or adult onset) inactivity of an enzyme, involved in the urea cycle. Neonatal onset results in clinical features that include irritability, vomiting, lethargy, seizures, NEONATAL HYPOTONIA; RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS; HYPERAMMONEMIA; coma, and death. Survivors of the neonatal onset and childhood/adult onset disorders share common risks for ENCEPHALOPATHIES, METABOLIC, INBORN; and RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS due to HYPERAMMONEMIA.
