Sinonasal-Related Orbital Infections in Children: A Clinical and Therapeutic Overview.

J Clin Med 2019 Jan 16;8(1). Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Otolaryngological Unit, Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, 20122 Milan, Italy.

Sinonasal-related orbital infections (SROIs) are typically pediatric diseases that occur in 3⁻4% of children with acute rhinosinusitis. They are characterised by various clinical manifestations, such as peri-orbital and orbital cellulitis or orbital and sub-periosteal abscesses that may develop anteriorly or posteriorly to the orbital septum. Posterior septal complications are particularly dangerous, as they may lead to visual loss and life-threatening events, such as an intracranial abscess and cavernous sinus thrombosis. Read More

The eye of the beholder: orbital metastases from midgut neuroendocrine tumors, a two institution experience.

Cancer Imaging 2018 Dec 6;18(1):47. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Internal Medicine, Stanford University Medical Center, Stanford, CA, USA.

Background: Metastases to the orbit occur rarely in midgut neuroendocrine tumor (NET) patients with only 20 cases reported to date. Patients typically present with bilateral involvement of the recti muscles and experience symptoms such as diplopia, proptosis, and decreased vision. Although orbital MRI remains the gold standard for imaging orbital disease, many orbital lesions are now detected on somatostatin-receptor (SSTR) based imaging such as 68Ga-DOTATATE PET-CT.

Acute dacryocystitis complicated by orbital cellulitis and loss of vision: A case report and review of the literature.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2018 9;50:130-134. Epub 2018 Aug 9.

Department of Ophthalmology, College of Medicine, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Introduction: Acute dacryocystitis usually presents as a pre-septal cellulitis since the lacrimal sac lies anterior to the orbital septum. Orbital cellulitis secondary to acute dacryocystitis is very rare due to a variety of anatomic barriers to the orbit but can occur and result in abscess formation with risk of visual compromise.

Presentation Of Case: We describe a case of otherwise healthy adult who presented with complete visual loss following orbital cellulitis and abscess formation secondary to acute dacryocystitis. Read More

Department of Diagnostic and Biomedical Sciences, School of Dentistry, University of Texas Health Science Center, Houston, Texas, United States of America.

The mitis group, a member of the genetically diverse viridans group streptococci, predominately colonizes the human oropharynx. This group has been shown to cause a wide range of infectious complications in humans, including bacteremia in patients with neutropenia, orbital cellulitis and infective endocarditis. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) has been identified as a virulence factor produced by this group of streptococci. Read More

[Periorbital, blue tumour in newborn twins].

Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd 2018 Jul 13;162. Epub 2018 Jul 13.

Franciscus Gasthuis en Vlietland, afd. Kindergeneeskunde, Rotterdam.

Newborn twins both had a blue, smooth tumour in the inner angle of the orbit; one of them had two such tumours. They were diagnosed with congenital dacryocystoceles. If decompression into the nose is not effective, patients should undergo probing early in life to reduce the incidence of dacryocystitis and orbital cellulitis. Read More

C-reactive protein may be useful to differentiate idiopathic orbital inflammation and orbital cellulitis in cases with acute eyelid erythema and edema.

Clin Ophthalmol 2018 26;12:1149-1153. Epub 2018 Jun 26.

Department of Ophthalmology, Osaka Medical College, Takatsuki, Osaka, Japan,

Purpose: Idiopathic orbital inflammation (IOI) and orbital cellulitis can present similar clinical features, and the diagnoses of these two disorders are sometimes confused. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether or not inflammatory markers in the blood can be useful to differentiate between IOI and orbital cellulitis in cases with acute eyelid erythema and edema.

Subjects And Methods: In this retrospective single-institute study, we reviewed the medical records spanning the past 10 years at the Department of Ophthalmology, Osaka Medical College Hospital, Takatsuki, Osaka, Japan, and found 45 cases, with patients >15 years of age, with presumed IOI.

Nasal septal abscess as a sequela of orbital cellulitis: An uncommon presentation.

SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2018 31;6:2050313X18778726. Epub 2018 May 31.

Department of ENT-Head and Neck Surgery, KRL Hospital, Islamabad, Pakistan.

Nasal septal abscess is a rather unusual condition encountered in the Otorhinolaryngology outpatient department, let alone it being a complication of orbital cellulitis! The condition usually occurs due to trauma which is significant enough to cause a septal haematoma. The haematoma then eventually results in formation of a localised abscess. Orbital cellulitis as a sequela of nasal septal abscess is an established complication but vice versa, septal abscess as a sequela of orbital cellulitis is an extremely rare presentation. Read More

Complication of an Odontogenic Infection to an Orbital Abscess: The Role of a Medical Fraudster ("Quack").

Iran J Otorhinolaryngol 2018 May;30(98):181-184

Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, Maulana Azad Medical College and Associated Lok Nayak Hospital, New Delhi-110002, India.

Introduction: Complication of an odontogenic infection to an orbital abscess is not a common presentation. The progression from a simple toothache to a condition that may lead to loss of vision is sudden and severe.

Case Report: We report a rare case in which a patient developed facial cellulitis that progressed to orbital abscess after unsterile dental manipulation by a medical fraudster ("quack"). Read More

The authors present a rare case of nontraumatic medial orbital wall fracture in an 11-year-old girl. Fractures of the orbital wall secondary to nose blowing have not been previously described in the pediatric population. The patient reported a history of chronic forceful nose blowing, followed by periorbital swelling after an episode of vigorous nose blowing. Read More

Management of pediatric orbital cellulitis: A systematic review.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Jul 8;110:123-129. Epub 2018 May 8.

Department of Otolaryngology, Boston University School of Medicine, 4th Floor, FGH Building, 820 Harrison Ave., Boston, MA 02118, United States. Electronic address:

Objectives: Orbital complications account for 74-85% of all complications from acute sinusitis, more often affect the pediatric population, and can result in devastating consequences. Therefore these patients require prompt diagnosis and proper management. We review and summarize the current literature to determine the appropriate management of each stage of pediatric orbital cellulitis and offer a new comprehensive literature-based algorithm.

Trigeminal Trophic Syndrome Leading to Orbital Cellulitis.

Clin Pract Cases Emerg Med 2018 May 14;2(2):121-124. Epub 2018 Mar 14.

University of Alabama School of Medicine, Department of Emergency Medicine, Birmingham, Alabama.

Trigeminal trophic syndrome is a rare condition that develops from trigeminal nerve damage causing dysesthesias that result in self-mutilation. Facial and nasal destruction develops from self-destructive behavior (repetitive picking or scratching) secondary to the altered skin sensation created by the damaged trigeminal nerve. Early recognition of this condition is crucial to the prevention of the detrimental complications of facial ulceration and nasal tissue necrosis that can lead to corneal ulcerations, full-thickness eyelid defect, and canthal lesions.
