Spaulding, "Rubeosis iridis in retinoblastoma and pseudoglioma
," Transactions of the American Ophthalmological Society, vol.
This volume on ocular pathology outlines the basic principles of pathology, congenital anomalies, nongranulomatous and granulomatous inflammation, surgical and nonsurgical trauma, the skin and lacrimal drainage system, and pathologies of various parts of the eye, as well as tumors, glaucoma, diabetes, and retinoblastoma and pseudoglioma
. This edition includes new tables; new imaging techniques like ultrasound biomicroscopy and optical coherence tomography; and new entities like familial anterior-segment dysgenesis syndrome, diffuse keratoconjunctival proliferation, and new corneal dystrophies like zipper cell endotheliopathy, Lisch dystrophy, epithelial recurrent erosion dystrophy, subepithelial mucinous corneal dystrophy, and dystrophia Helsinglandica and dystrophia Smolandiendsis.

from retinoblastoma, apart from confirming the diagnosis of retinoblastoma.

The researchers were studying the role of a protein known as LDL-receptor related protein 5 (or LRP5), one of the most intensely studied regulators of bone remodelling which causes osteoporosis pseudoglioma
Consider the discovery of the mutated gene responsible for osteoporosis pseudoglioma, a rare condition that leaves bones so brittle that affected individuals are usually wheelchair-bound by their teenage years.
Warman, his colleague Yaoqin Gong, and their collaborators have searched for the osteoporosis pseudoglioma gene for almost a decade.
Osteoporosis pseudoglioma isn't just a bone disease, however.
