Penetrating palpebral grass awn in a dog: Unusual case of a penetrating grass awn in an eyelid.

Abstract An unusual case of a penetrating grass awn in an eyelid of a dog is reported. A 6-month-old mixed breed dog was referred to the Ophthalmology Unit of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital of Camerino University for anorexia, lethargy, left monolateral ocular swelling and pain to the left eye, present from 1 month. Ophthalmic examination of the left eye showed copious and purulent discharge, and ultrasonography revealed the presence of an abscess containing a grass foreign body. The grass awn was surgically removed. Three days after surgery, the dog showed a marked improvement, with a total resolution obtained in 7 days. To the authors' knowledge, penetrating foreign bodies such as the one of this paper have never been described before in literature.

OAB - Publisher: Questo articolo descrive un particolare caso di corpo estraneo
      palpebrale di origine vegetale Un cane meticcio di sei mesi di eta e stato
      riferito all'Unita di Oftalmologia dell'Ospedale Veterinario Didattico
      dell'Universita di Camerino per la presenza di anoressia letargia e tumefazione
      oculare monolaterale sinistra associata a dolore presenti da un mese. L'esame
      oftalmologico dell'occhio sinistro ha messo in evidenza la presenza di abbondante
      essudato purulento e la valutazione ultrasonografica ha mostrato la presenza a
      livello palpebrale di un ascesso contenente un corpo estraneo vegetale che e
      stato rimosso chirurgicamente. Tre giorni dopo la chirurgia il cane gia
      manifestava un marcato miglioramento con una guarigione completa dopo una
      settimana. In bibliografia non sono stati mai descritti corpi estranei vegetali
      penetranti a livello palpebrale come quello riportato nel presente articolo.
