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

Department of Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, USA.

BACKGROUND Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) can present clinically as a spectrum that includes asymptomatic elevation of transaminases, acute or chronic hepatitis, and acute liver failure. Idiosyncratic DILI is more likely to affect individuals with comorbidities, and to have a wide range of clinical presentations. Although antibiotics are associated with DILI, the fluoroquinolone, ciprofloxacin, is a rarely reported cause. Read More

Orbital cellulitis with choroidal detachment following strabismus surgery in an adult.

J AAPOS 2018 Dec 29;22(6):477-480. Epub 2018 Aug 29.

Yale Eye Center, Yale New Haven Hospital, New Haven, Connecticut. Electronic address:

We report the case of a 76-year-old man who presented with left eye pain, eyelid swelling, and restricted extraocular motility 3 days after strabismus surgery. Computed tomography of the orbits did not show drainable abscesses, but magnetic resonance imaging on postoperative day 9 showed choroidal detachment with retrobulbar abscess and dural enhancement despite broad-spectrum intravenous antibiotic use. Following incision and drainage of the abscess, which grew methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, the patient showed improvement in visual acuity, pain, and extraocular motility. Read More

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
