    When an Orbital Infection Isn't Infectious at All: A Review of Orbital Inflammatory Syndrome.

    Pediatr Ann 2017 Nov;46(11):e433-e436
    Orbital inflammatory syndrome (OIS) includes a wide range of clinical manifestations and may initially be misdiagnosed as orbital cellulitis due similar symptoms of fever, periorbital swelling, and pain with eye movements. A diagnosis of OIS requires evaluation for underlying systemic disorders including autoimmune disorders and thyroid disease. Symptoms typically improve rapidly after initiation of steroid therapy, although recurrence can occur. This article presents an illustrative case of a 13-year-old girl with OIS. [Pediatr Ann. 2017;46(11):e433-e436.].

    Department of Medicine (I.J.S.), Rheumatology Service (D.R.F.) and Ophthalmology Service (D.J.B.) William Beaumont Army Medical Center, El Paso, Texas.
    Orbital inflammatory syndrome (OIS) is a rare condition characterized by inflammation of orbital structures in the absence of underlying infection, neoplasm or endocrinopathy. The pathogenesis of OIS has not been fully described, but histopathology reveals diffuse lymphocytic infiltration of the involved structures. This disorder presents clinically as acute pain and swelling in the orbit and usually responds rapidly to high dose corticosteroids. Read More
