Choroidal metastasis is the most common intraocular neoplasm and is associated with significant morbidity. In a small percentage of patients, ocular manifestation may be the initial presentation of a systemic malignancy and can be diagnostically difficult to distinguish from ocular primary malignancies. Herein, we present a case of a never-smoker ...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) is a rare lung condition characterised by the accumulation of lipoproteinaceous surfactant material within alveolar airspaces resulting in clinical manifestations ranging from asymptomatic to severe respiratory failure. Three disease subtypes are recognised: autoimmune, secondary and congenital. METHODS: We describe two presentations of PAP in the ...

Epiphora is a frequent reason for ophthalmologic consultation. Among the multiple causes, obstructions of the lacrimal excretory system are common. Sacal and postsacal obstructions are much more frequent than presacal obstructions. Obstruction at the level of the Hasner's valve is rare and likely underestimated. The authors report the clinical history ...

Microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) frequently involves the lungs. However, as opposed to granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's), limited forms are not recognised. In recent years, cases have been reported in which the lungs were affected without other organ manifestations. For years, many have been labelled as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). In this ...

Congenital high airway obstruction sequence (CHAOS) has traditionally been defined as airway obstruction with ultrasound evidence of distal airway dilatation, expanded lungs, ascites, and hydrops. It can result from aplasia or intrinsic obstruction to the formation of the upper airway (larynx and trachea) during development. CHAOS is commonly sporadic and ...

Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformations (CCAM) are rare developmental anomalies of the lung characterized by cysts of varying sizes and/or adenomatoid proliferation. Type I CCAM, the most frequent subtype, is associated with an increased incidence of malignant transformation, principally bronchioloalveolar carcinoma, with a reported incidence of around 1%. We report the ...
