Meibomian


Definition:

  • (a.) Of, pertaining to, or discovered by, Meibomius.

Example Sentences:

  • (2) Accordingly, an insufficiency of the lacrimal film may be due to insufficient secretion of lipids from the skin or meibomian glands, insufficiency of the aqueous phase of the lacrimal film (as is the case in Gougerot-Sj√∂gren syndrome), or insufficiency of the mucus secretions (as in the case of pemphigoid syndrome).
  • (3) This culture system will allow future exploration of the regulatory mechanism of meibomian gland differentiation at the cellular level.
  • (4) Heightened interest in meibomian glands dysfunction prompted the authors to examine the ultrastructure of the glandular epithelium in specimens of surgical origin, by thin section and freeze-fracture electron microscopies.
  • (5) This study was performed to evaluate the clinical efficacy and the safety of sultamicillin (SBTPC) fine granules in the treatment of patients with meibomianitis.
  • (6) After radiotherapy, 52 patients of palpebral carcinoma were followed up, including squamous cell carcinoma 24 cases, basal cell carcinoma 19 cases, undifferentiated carcinoma 7 cases, and Meibomian gland carcinoma 2 cases.
  • (7) A white, cheeselike secretion issuing from the orifice of the Meibomian gland duct when the eyelid is squeezed is one sign of this intoxiation.

  • (9) Two peaks were observed in the age distribution one in the first decade due to retinoblastoma and another between forty one to sixty years due to malignant lid tumours especially meibomian carcinoma.
  • (10) The lipid components of meibomian gland excreta were evaluated in rabbits after they received 2% topical epinephrine dropped into their eyes daily for a period of 6 months to a year to induce meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD).
  • (11) In the PenCB intoxicated animals treated with squalane, severe degree of Meibomian gland findings were found in the early stage and mild to moderate abnormalities in the late stage.
  • (12) The lower lids of 274 normal subjects have been examined in the slit-lamp for expressibility of secretion from the Meibomian glands.
  • (13) Whereas in the preputial gland all of the acinar cells exhibit immunoreactivity, in the meibomian and perianal glands only selective cells contain alpha 2u-globulin.
  • (14) Usually, lesions arise in the meibomian glands of the eyelid; however, extraocular lesions within the head and neck have been reported.
  • (15) Cells of meibomian glands, other sebaceous glands, sweat glands, and goblet cells displayed no significant alterations.
  • (16) All of the blepharitic patients had an abnormality of sebaceous gland function ranging from seborrhea sicca to seborrheic dermatitis or acne rosacea, suggesting a generalized sebaceous gland dysfunction that included the meibomian glands.
  • (17) Rabbit whole meibomian glands were isolated by microsurgical dissection and enzymatic digestion.
  • (18) The patient experienced corneal ulceration, and examination of the eyes revealed a reduced number of meibomian glands and changes in the cornea consistent with previous ulcers.
  • (19) Stagnation of the meibomian glands presumably caused a defect in the tear lipid layer; this resulted in an unstable tear film that produced superficial punctate keratopathy.
