A prospective study of cost, patient satisfaction, and outcome of treatment of chalazion by medical and nursing staff. (1/11)

AIM: To study prospectively the outcome of conservative and surgical treatment of chalazia provided by medical and nursing staff. METHODS: During a 5 month recruitment period all patients attending a district general eye hospital for treatment of chalazion were included in the study. 129 patients (217 visits) with chalazia were seen by either a senior nurse or a trainee ophthalmologist (senior house officer, SHO) or both. Patients received either conservative treatment or eversion of the eyelid with incision and curettage. Patients were mailed a questionnaire asking them if their cyst had resolved and how they rated their treatment. Marginal cost analysis was used to determine the cost of treatment. RESULTS: The outcome of treatment could be determined in 170 of the 217 visits. Conservative treatment was successful for 29% of cysts while surgical treatment was successful for 72%. There was no significant difference in treatment outcome between nurse and SHO groups. Patients found nurse treatment acceptable with a high level of patient satisfaction. The marginal cost of treatment by a nurse was 9.91 pounds sterling per cyst compared with 12.10 pounds sterling for SHOs. There were no surgical complications and no evidence of malignancy in six biopsies. CONCLUSIONS: Surgical treatment of chalazion is safe and effective and successfully treats approximately three quarters of selected cysts. With conservative treatment approximately one third of selected chalazia will resolve within 3 months. Nurse treatment of chalazion is safe, effective, and acceptable to patients.  (+info)

Subcutaneous steroid injection as treatment for chalazion: prospective case series. (2/11)

OBJECTIVE: To study the efficacy of subcutaneous steroid injection in the treatment of chalazion. DESIGN: Prospective consecutive case series. SETTING: University teaching hospital, Hong Kong. PATIENTS: Patients with chalazion presenting to the out-patient clinic of the Department of Ophthalmology at the Prince of Wales Hospital from January to June 1998. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Size of the chalazion after steroid injection treatment. RESULTS: Forty-eight consecutive patients with chalazion were treated with injection of triamcinolone into the subcutaneous tissue around the lesion. In 43 (89.6%) patients, the lesion subsided completely. Twenty-six (54.2%) patients had lesions that subsided with one injection. The size and duration of the chalazion at presentation did not significantly affect the outcome of the treatment. Two patients developed depigmentation of the skin at the site of injection. No other major complications were encountered. CONCLUSION: Subcutaneous injection of the steroid triamcinolone acetonide appears to be a simple and effective treatment for chalazion. Further comparative clinical trials are indicated.  (+info)

Efficacy of lignocaine 2% gel in chalazion surgery. (3/11)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To determine whether topical 2% lignocaine (lidocaine) gel is an effective anaesthetic agent for chalazion surgery. METHODS: In a randomised controlled clinical trial, 57 subjects aged 12 years or over requiring incision and curettage for chalazion were recruited over an 8 month period. Patients were randomised into two groups. One group received 1.5 ml of lignocaine 2% injection and the other 1.5 ml of lignocaine 2% gel topically. Standard incision and curettage was then performed. The primary outcome of interest was the total pain experienced during the entire procedure including anaesthetic administration as well as incision and curettage. The pain from the local anaesthetic administration and during incision and curettage was assessed independently using a visual analogue scale (0-100). The sum of these two scores would be the total pain score out of 200. "Fear of injection" score (0-100) was also assessed. RESULTS: There was a statistically significant difference in the mean total pain scores between the injection and the gel groups (95.6 v 57.0) (p <0.001) (alpha = 0.05) (1 - beta = 0.9394). There was a statistically significant difference in the mean scores on "pain of anaesthetic administration" (47.0 v 5.5) (p <0.000). There was no statistically significant differences in the mean scores on "fear of injection" (43.9 v 47.7) (p = 0.668) and "pain during incision and curettage" (48.28 v 51.4) (p=0.679). CONCLUSIONS: Lignocaine 2% gel is effective in chalazion surgery especially in lowering the pain caused by anaesthetic administration.  (+info)

Subconjunctival total excision in the treatment of chronic chalazia. (4/11)

A technique of subconjunctival total excision was used to treat 34 chronic chalazia. Another 34 were treated by incision and curettage and a further 32 by intralesional injection of long acting steroid. Subconjunctival total excision showed a higher success rate (94.12%) compared to the incision and curettage group (76.47%) and the injection group (75%). As the difference was statistically significant and due to other advantages we recommend subconjunctival total excision as a primary approach in the treatment of chronic chalazia.  (+info)

Subcutaneous extralesional triamcinolone acetonide injection versus conservative management in the treatment of chalazion. (5/11)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of subcutaneous extralesional triamcinolone acetonide injection versus conservative treatment for chalazion. DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial. SETTING: Eye clinics of two regional hospitals in Hong Kong. PATIENTS: Patients over 18 years old presenting with primary chalazion were randomised into two groups. In group 1, 12 patients were treated with lid hygiene, warm compresses, and chloramphenicol 1% ointment 4 times a day. In group 2, 16 patients were treated with 0.3 mL triamcinolone acetonide (10 mg/mL) injection to the subcutaneous tissue extralesionally via the percutaneous route. Exclusion criteria were: acutely infected chalazion with preseptal cellulitis, recurrent chalazion, small chalazion (< or =2 mm), and prior treatment to chalazion. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Size of chalazion, recurrence of chalazion, intra-ocular pressure, and complications from treatment, including skin pigmentary change or atrophy and pyogenic granuloma. RESULTS: There was a clinically and statistically significant difference between the success rates in group 1 (58.3%) and group 2 (93.8%). In group 1, the mean prior duration of chalazion before treatment was significantly shorter in success cases than in failed cases. One patient with multiple chalazia in group 2 developed hypopigmentary skin changes at one treatment site. CONCLUSION: Subcutaneous extralesional triamcinolone acetonide injection was more effective than conservative treatment for chalazion.  (+info)

A solitary fibrofolliculoma in the eyelid. (6/11)

PURPOSE: To report the first case of a solitary eyelid fibrofolliculoma and to review the literature. METHODS: A 37-year-old female patient visited the outpatient department with a lesion in the right upper lid that had been growing steadily for a year. The patient had visited the local clinic, and under the diagnosis of chalazion had received incision and curettage twice, but the lesion had recurred. RESULTS: The 5x5 mm lesion was located near the upper lid margin. It was a red, hemispheric, smooth nodule, relatively solid to palpation and not painful. Excision and biopsy were performed, and through a histological exam, the diagnosis of fibrofolliculoma was later confirmed. CONCLUSIONS: Solitary fibrofolliculoma is rare, and to the authors' knowledge, a lesion arising in the eyelid has not yet been reported. Fibrofolliculoma should be included in the differential diagnosis when a localized mass lesion arising in the eyelid is encountered.  (+info)

Management of chalazia in general practice. (7/11)

BACKGROUND: Chalazia, or meibomian cysts, are often seen in general practice. While most can be resolved with a minor operation in a designated procedure room, there is a lack of published literature on the details of the incision and curettage used to treat this condition. OBJECTIVE: This article outlines the management and treatment of chalazia in the general practice setting. DISCUSSION: Chalazia are a common cause of morbidity in people of all ages. Treatment, which is based on clinical diagnosis, can involve conservative management, intralesional steroid injection, or incision and curettage.  (+info)

Eyelid tumors: histopathological and clinical study performed in County Hospital of Oradea between 2000-2007. (8/11)

The work assessment is to analyze eyelid tumors diagnosed in the last years in our hospital. We found 471 tumoral and pseudotumoral cases, in which malignant tumors predominated, with 255 cases. The most affected age range was the sixth decade and the majority of tumors were located to lower eyelid. The histopathological study allowed us to establish the lesions type and subtype. The Meibomian gland cysts, squamous papillomas and basal cell carcinomas were the most frequent related with this three of category lesions represented by pseudotumors, benign tumors and malignant tumors. Early diagnosis of these lesions can determine a favorable prognosis, especially in cases of malignant tumors.  (+info)

Chalazion is a cyst in the eyelid due to a blocked oil gland. They are typically in the middle of the eyelid, red, and non painful. They tend to come on gradually over a few weeks. A chalazion may occur following a stye or from hardened oils blocking the gland. The blocked gland is usually the meibomian gland but can also be the gland of Zeis. A stye and cellulitis may appear similar. A stye, however, is usually more sudden in onset, painful, and occurs at the edge of the eyelid. Cellulitis is also typically painful. Treatment is typically initially with warm compresses. If this is not effective injecting steroids into the lesion may be tried. If large, incision and drainage may be recommended. While relatively common the frequency of the condition is unknown. The term is from the Greek khalazion meaning small hailstone.

There are many ways of managing chalazion. Frequently simple measures will be enough to help relieve symptoms. In the first instance hot compress massage will often help reduced the levels of inflammation and reduce the size of the chalazion. By heating up the eye lid along with massage, this allows the oils within the glands to move more freely, and prevents the glands from becoming inflamed. Along side this you may occasionally be asked to use lubricating drops as well as using measures to keep the eyelashes free of debris.. If conservative measures such as the above fail to improve symptoms of chalazion, then sometimes a small surgical procedure may be appropriate, which will be discussed with you.

If this is ineffective, inject triamcinolone acetonide (Kenalog) 5mg/ml or 10mg/ml directly into the chalazion (some practitioners have advocated concentrations as high as 40mg/ml, but this is not standard practice). Approach the lesion from the palpebral side, and inject 0.05 to 0.3ml in standard form, using a tuberculin syringe and 30-gauge needle. You may want to use a chalazion clamp and topical anesthesia, but this is not absolutely necessary.

Sometimes, the gland may become infected and a stye may develop.. ...
A chalazion will often disappear without treatment in a month or so. The primary treatment is to apply warm compresses for 10-15 minutes at least four times a day. This may soften the hardened oils blocking the duct, and promote drainage and healing. If the chalazion continues to get bigger, it may need to be removed with surgery. This is usually done from underneath the eyelid to avoid a scar on the skin. Antibiotic eye drops are usually used several days before and after the cyst is removed. However, they are not much use otherwise in treating a chalazion. Steroid injection is another treatment option. ...

If you have ever had a small, painful lump along the edge of your eyelid then you have probably had a sty (also spelled stye). While styes are fairly common and are usually visible on the outer eyelid, they have formed deeper inside the eyelid in some cases as well. Lets look at the causes, types and treatments of styes to keep you informed in case you suspect that you may be suffering from one of these painful blockages.. What is a sty and what causes it? A sty is an external bump on the eyelid that swells and then eventually bursts then heals. The sty originally forms due to a blocked gland that needs to become cleared. There are two main types of sty lumps. These include: hordeolum and chalazion. Each has different causes and treatments. A hordeolum is a blockage of one of the sweat glands found in the skin of the lid and base of the eyelashes, or one of the small sebaceous glands found at the base of the eyelashes. A chalazion is a blockage of a meibomian gland, which is a special sebaceous ...

A hordeolum is a common, painful lump in the eyelid that is usually caused by a bacterial infection. The infection affects the oil glands in the eyelid and results in a lump. Often, the infected lump drains and heals by itself, with no treatment. However, the infection can sometimes spread to other glands in the eyes, and can become long lasting. It can also turn into a cyst (known as a chalazion). Hordeola can be internal (on the inside of the eyelid), or external (on the outside of the eyelid near the eyelashes). A hordeolum on the outside of the eyelid is known as a stye. Hordeola can also be acute (appearing suddenly and healing in a short time), or chronic (long lasting). Common treatments for hordeola include warm compresses applied at home, topical medications and lid scrubs available over-the-counter, prescribed antibiotics or steroids, and lid massages..

A stye, also known as a hordeolum, is a bacterial infection of an oil gland in the eyelid. This results in a red tender bump at the edge of the eyelid. The outside or the inside of the eyelid can be affected. The cause of a stye is usually a bacterial infection by Staphylococcus aureus. The internal ones are due to infection of the meibomian gland while the external ones are due to an infection of the gland of Zeis. A chalazion on the other hand is a blocked oil gland without infection. They are typically in the middle of the eyelid and non painful. Often a stye will go away without any specific treatment in a few days or weeks. Recommendations to speed improvement include warm compresses. Occasionally antibiotic eye ointment may be recommended. While these measures are often recommended, evidence to support them is poor. The frequency at which they occur is unclear. They may happen at any age. The first sign of a stye is a small, yellowish spot at the center of the bump that develops as pus and ...

Many different bacteria and viruses can cause conjunctivitis in the neonate. The two most common causes are N. gonorrheae and Chlamydia acquired from the birth canal during delivery. Ophthalmia neonatorum due to gonococci (Neisseria gonorrhoeae) typically manifests in the first five days post birth and is associated with marked bilateral purulent discharge and local inflammation. In contrast, conjunctivitis secondary to infection with chlamydia (Chlamydia trachomatis) produces conjunctivitis after day three post birth, but may occur up to two weeks after delivery. The discharge is usually more watery in nature (mucopurulent) and less inflamed. Babies infected with chlamydia may develop pneumonitis (chest infection) at a later stage (range 2 weeks - 19 weeks after delivery). Infants with chlamydia pneumonitis should be treated with oral erythromycin for 10-14 days.[6] Other agents causing ophthalmia neonatorum include Herpes simplex virus (HSV 2), Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus ...

Patient remains asymptomatic until epithelial erosions precipitate acute episodes of ocular ...
