Survey of Patients With Idiopathic Orbital Inflammation Syndrome

2014-07-23 22:00:35 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to characterise the clinical features, histopathology and the treatment outcomes of patients with idiopathic orbital inflammation syndrome.

Description

Idiopathic orbital inflammatory syndrome (IOIS) is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterised by orbital inflammation without any identifiable local or systemic causes. It is a rare clinical entity and a diagnosis of exclusion. Lymphomas, thyroid eye diseases or systemic diseases can have similar presentation and so, a histopathological diagnosis is considered important. IOIS is a difficult condition to treat. Compilation of reported small series of patients with IOIS suggested that they require multiple systemic immunosuppressant drugs and radiotherapy. Recently, a large monocentric study including patients with biopsy proven IOIS showed that up to 40% of them can relapse. Their clinical and pathological features did not correlate with treatments outcomes. The investigators decide therefore to conduct a multicentric retro/ prospective study to determine clinical features, histopathology and treatment outcomes of French patients with IOIS.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.

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).

An idiopathic syndrome characterized by the formation of granulation tissue in the anterior cavernous sinus or superior orbital fissure, producing a painful ophthalmoplegia. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p271)

Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy. (Glaser, Neuro-Ophthalmology, 2nd ed, p135)

Inflammation of the extraocular muscle of the eye. It is characterized by swelling which can lead to ischemia, fibrosis, or ORBITAL PSEUDOTUMOR.
