    J Craniofac Surg 2017 Nov;28(8):e775-e776
    *Şehit Kamil State Hospital, Ophthalmology Clinic, G.Antep †Department of Ophthalmology ‡Division of Pediatric Hematology, Faculty of Medicine, Mersin University §Mersin State Hospital, Ophthalmology Clinic, Mersin, Turkey.
    A 14-year-old boy with sickle cell disease presented with preseptal cellulitis findings as proptosis, eyelid edema, and hyperemia. His best corrected visual acuity in the right eye was 20/20 and 16/20 in the left eye. He had limited ductions in vertical and lateral gazes in both eyes. Bilateral venous tortuosity was observed in posterior segment examination. Orbital bone infarction and subperiosteal hematoma were seen in magnetic resonance imaging. He was diagnosed as having orbital compression syndrome secondary to vaso-occlusive crisis of sickle cell disease and was treated with intravenous ampicilin-sulbactam and methylprednisolone.

    Bilateral orbital bone infarction in sickle-cell disease.

    Department of Ophthalmology, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts 02118, USA.
    This is a case of a 2-year-old boy with sickle cell disease who presented with bilateral eyelid swelling, limited extraocular motility, and lateral subperiosteal fluid collection associated with bilateral lateral orbital wall infarctions on MRI. The patient was managed medically with intravenous fluids, analgesics, broad-spectrum antibiotics, systemic steroids, and clinically improved. Patients with sickle cell disease are susceptible to infarction of the orbital bones during vaso-occlusive crises. Read More

    Orbital compression syndrome is caused by disorders of varying etiologies involving the orbit and presents with ocular and extraocular dysfunction. Ocular involvement of sickle cell disease is uncommon. A 17-year-old male presented with low backache and proptosis of both eyes of 5 days duration without past history of pain crisis or transfusion.

    Department of Ophthalmology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine (AECOM)/Montefiore Medical Center (MMC), Bronx, New York, USA.
    Purpose: To present 3 cases of orbital compression syndrome caused by infarction of the greater wing of the sphenoid in patients with sickle cell disease.

    Methods: Case report and review of the literature.

    Results: Three patients with sickle cell disease (2 males aged 22 and 16 years, and a 10-year-old girl) who presented with proptosis, limited ocular motility, and chemosis were found to have an infarction of the marrow space of the greater wing of the sphenoid that produced an orbital subperiosteal hemorrhage and exudate demonstrated on MRI.

    We report the case of an 11-year-old girl with sickle cell disease who presented to the emergency room after being hit by a mud pie in the left frontal region. Examination evidenced left eye proptosis, eyelid swelling, reduced visual acuity and afferent pupillary defect, without any inflammatory signs such as fever, hyperemia or tenderness. Computed tomography of the orbits showed a large superomedial subperiosteal hematoma in the left orbit. Read More
