In duct ectasia
, the mammary duct-associated inflammatory disease sequence involves squamous metaplasia of lactiferous ducts, causing block-age (obstructive mastopathy) with peri-ductal inflammation and possible duct rupture (16).
It is strongly suggestive of the diagnosis (*) Tubular ectasia

Taking into account the midterm or long-term outcomes of corneal refractive surgery, we have not made sure whether high IOP is a risk factor for corneal ectasia
, and further studies, such as the observations on corneas after LASIK with increased IOP, and clinical observations should be designed and carried out.
This observation was also found in our present study, showing medium positive correlation between IL1b, IL-4, and IL-6 and the severity of the corneal ectasia
