*Dr. Caccamise has very generously shared his images of patients taken while operating during the "eye season" in rural India as well as those from his private practice during the 1960's and 1970's. Many of his images are significant for their historical perspective and for techniques and conditions seen in settings in undeveloped areas.

syringocystadenomata of lids

The slide was sent to my brother Charles - late Professor of Dermatology at the University of Mississippi. He returned it with the notation: " Textbook Picture of syringocystadenoma ". There is an arguable sentiment - but one to which Dr. Caccamise agrees: A non-ophthalmologist has a knowledge of ophthalmology that usually should limit him to counting two eyes: a non-dermatologist has a knowledge of dermatology that usually should permit him to make a diagnosis of " dermatitis confusiosa".
