CICATRICIAL ECTROPION AS A RESULT OF MUCOCELE OF THE FRONTAL SINUSPLASTIC REPAIR

Arch Ophthalmol. 1936;15(6):994-997. doi:10.1001/archopht.1936.00840180038003
Abstract

Ectropion as a result of mucocele of the frontal sinus appears from the absence of published reports to be an extremely rare condition. We have found no reports of cases after a fairly careful search of the literature, and the condition is not mentioned in any of the leading texts. That it is not so unusual as has just been indicated is evidenced by Lejeune's statement1 that he has observed several cases of this disorder. However, the condition seems to be of sufficient rarity to justify this report.

REPORT OF A CASE

Mrs. R. H., aged 56, was first seen at the Alfred Benjamin Dispensary in September 1934. She gave a history of a large painless, noninflammatory swelling of the right upper lid, which began twelve years previously. About one year after the onset the upper lid had become so swollen as to interfere with vision, and relief was sought.
