The mode of distribution of cholesterol in cholesterolosis bulbi


, : The mode of distribution of cholesterol in cholesterolosis bulbi. Albrecht Von Graefes Archiv fuer Klinische und Experimentelle Ophthalmologie 212(2): 101-108

The clinical and histological findings in cholesterolosis bulbi and the mode of distribution of the cholesterol crystals that were traced in the anterior chamber, iris, corpus ciliare, vitreous body, retina and choroid are described. No crystals were found in the cornea, sclera or lens. The patient had history of a trauma 37 yr before. Histologically, macrophages were visible in the Fe reaction. Since these macrophages contained siderous pigment, an intraocular hemorrhage probably played an important role in the development of the crystals.

Apropos of a case of cholesterol polyp manifested by an acute complication. A case of cholesterolic polyp, revealed by the formation of an infundibulo-cystic enclave, is reported, the polyp having the appearance of a cholesterolic calculus, but a pediculated one, and one acting as a calculus. The extreme rarity of this co...
