    MIRAgel Buckle Extrusion With Preseptal Cellulitis and Erosion Through the Eyelid Skin.
    Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2016 Dec;47(12):1147-1150
    MIRAgel (MIRA, Waltham, MA) scleral buckle material was initially developed in the 1980s as an alternative to more traditional silicone buckles. Long-term follow-up has demonstrated complications necessitating removal due to unanticipated hydrolytic degeneration of the exoplant. Material expansion and fragmentation have led to pain, limited extraocular motility, ocular masses, infection, and eventual extrusion. Read More

    Most preschool children hospitalised for acute rhinosinusitis had orbital complications, more common in the youngest and among boys.
    Acta Paediatr 2017 Feb 24;106(2):268-273. Epub 2016 Nov 24.
    Sach's Children and Youth Hospital, South General Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden.
    Aim: This study established the incidence of acute rhinosinusitis and related orbital complications in tertiary care in Stockholm County and surveyed the clinical outcomes.

    Methods: This was a population-based, retrospective, observational study, from July 1, 2003 to June 30, 2007, of the hospital admissions records of 213 children up to five years old, with a diagnosis of sinusitis and related complications.

    Results: Preseptal cellulitis was present in 171 of the 213 admissions, which equated to an incidence of orbital complications due to acute rhinosinusitis of 36 per 100 000 people per year (95% confidence interval 26-49). Read More

    Orbital Cysticercosis - masquerading as preseptal cellulitis with ptosis.
    Nepal J Ophthalmol 2015 Jul;7(14):206-8
    We are sharing a case of orbital cysticercosis,which presented to us initially with simple ptosis and later on with upper lid inflammation and restricted ocular motility in upgaze. Human cysticercosis, a parasitic infection caused by Cysticercus cellulosae, the larval form of the cestode, Taenia solium, is a benign infection of the subcutaneous tissues, inter-muscular fascia, muscles and other organs. Though it exists worldwide, it is more prevalent in the developing countries of Latin America, Asia and Africa, especially in areas where under-cooked pork is consumed regularly (Pushker et al, 2001).

    Intra or extra orbital cellulitis or abscesses are the most frequent bacterial complications of acute sinusitis. Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus (SA), and anaerobic bacteria are predominant, and more rarelyHaemophilus influenzae (especially since vaccination against type b). Because of bacterial sensitivity, PK/PD parameters of antibiotics, and depending on the classification of Chandler, different probabilistic regimens may be proposed: In class 1 by Chandler (preseptal cellulitis), amoxicillinclavulinate (80 mg/kg/d) in 2 oral doses, and ceftriaxone in intramuscular injection; in cases of class 2 to 5 by Chandler, high doses of intravenous amoxicillin-clavulinate (until 150 mg/kg/d of amoxicillin), or intravenous association of ceftriaxone (100 mg/kg/d) or cefotaxim (200 mg/kg/d), with anti-anaerobic like metronidazole (30 mg/kg/d) or clindamycine (40 mg/kg/d).
