1/5. Sticky eyelid syndrome.

    PURPOSE: To report on patients seen with an unusual condition affecting the eyelids. The syndrome manifests as a temporary adhesion which forms between the upper and lower eyelid associated with laxity of the lower lid retractors. This results in a peculiar closure of the lids. DESIGN: Retrospective case reports. methods: charts of affected patients were reviewed for their clinical histories, examination findings, external photographs, and the results of treatment. RESULTS: Ten consecutive patients with the associated findings were reviewed. All cases were unilateral. Seven patients were Asian and three were Caucasian. Nine patients were symptomatic; of these, all were treated conservatively except for one who requested surgery. Two cases are described and photographs are shown. CONCLUSION: Lower eyelid retractor laxity combined with a temporary adhesion between the upper and lower lid results in the clinical findings of Sticky Eyelid syndrome.

Nine months later there were greenish-yellow deposits in the deep stroma that accounted for a persistent decrease in vision. physicians should be aware of the potential for ocular injury with the use of silver nitrate applicator sticks.

5/5. Tick infestation of the eyelid.

    PURPOSE: To report the rare occurrence of tick infestation of the eyelid margin. methods: A 58-year-old woman was initially examined with a small yellow lesion of the left upper eyelid margin that appeared after she felt a sting near her eye. Close examination disclosed an insect body attached to the eyelid margin. En bloc excision of the insect with part of the eyelid was performed. RESULT: Gross examination of the specimen identified the organism as the nymph stage of a bloated tick of the genus Hyalomma but of an uncertain species. CONCLUSION: ticks (Hyalomma) can become embedded in the meibomian gland orifice and manifest as a mass at the eyelid margin.
