Sudoriferous cyst of the orbit

Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
W J Rosen, Y Li


A case of sudoriferous cyst of the orbit in an adult patient is reported. This unusual cyst in the orbit has heretofore been reported only in congenital cases. Case report. A 45-year-old woman sought treatment for an asymptomatic mass of the left lower eyelid. Computed tomography of the orbits showed a cystic lesion in the inferior orbit with bony remodeling. Histopathologic examination showed the lesion to be a solitary cyst lined by two to three layers of cuboidal epithelial cells with eosinophilic cytoplasm. Some of the epithelial cells contained periodic acid-Schiff-positive, diastase-resistant granules. The pathologic diagnosis was a sudoriferous cyst. Sudoriferous cysts, although uncommon, should be included in the differential diagnosis of orbital cystic tumors.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.
