Dysfunkcja gruczołów Meiboma – wyzwania diagnostyczne i terapeutyczne

Title variants
Meibomian gland dysfunction. Diagnostic and therapeutic challenges
Languages of publication
Dysfunkcja gruczołów Meiboma (MGD, Meibomian gland dysfunction) jest jednym z najczęściej stwierdzanych schorzeń okulistycznych. Do jej objawów należą: zapalenie, nadmierne wydzielanie i nieprawidłowy skład wydzieliny gruczołów Meiboma. Rosnąca świadomość znaczenia MGD wymusza poszukiwanie skuteczniejszych metod terapii. Pomimo wielu tradycyjnych sposobów leczenia, takich jak ciepłe kompresy i higiena powiek zmniejszająca ilość zalegającej wydzieliny łojowej oraz podawanie antybiotyków i leków przeciwzapalnych wpływających na jakość wydzieliny gruczołowej, terapia MGD pozostaje wyzwaniem. Nowe metody leczenia MGD mogą odegrać istotną rolę w ograniczaniu oznak i objawów klinicznych choroby.
Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is one of the most common disorders encountered by ophthalmologists, and it may involve inflammation, hypersecretion, and abnormal excreta of the meibomian glands. Given the increased recognition of the importance of MGD, great attention has been paid to the therapy of MGD. Although there are a number of traditional treatment options, such as warm compresses and lid hygiene to alleviate the obstructed meibum, and antibiotics and anti-inflammatory agents are used to improve the quality of meibum, the treatment of MGD still remains challenging. These emerging treatment options for MGD may play an important role in alleviating the clinical symptoms and signs of this disease.
