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

Nasal Injuries in Sports.

Clin Sports Med 2017 Apr;36(2):337-353

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Mayo Clinic, 200 1st Street Southwest, Rochester, MN 55905, USA. Electronic address:

Nasal trauma is a common consequence of athletic competition. The nasal bones are the most commonly fractured facial bone and are particularly at risk during sports participation. Acute management of trauma to the nose includes thorough evaluation of all injuries and may require immediate management for repair of facial lacerations, epistaxis control, or septal hematoma drainage.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2008 Mar;59(3):139-41

Servicio de Otorrinolaringología, Hospital Infantil Universitario Niño Jesús, Madrid, Spain.

Septal haematoma following nasal trauma is a complication that, if not diagnosed and treated early, may evolve into a nasal septal abscess. We present the case of a 10-year-old male who suffered nasal trauma with fracture and an undiagnosed septal haematoma that evolved into a septal abscess. During drainage of the abscess, necrosis of the quadrangular cartilage was noted. Read More

Servicio de Cirugía Plástica, Hospital Infantil Universitario Niño Jesús, Madrid.

Septal haematoma after nasal trauma is a complication that can lead to septal abscess if unrecognized or early intervention is not performed. It can cause compression and thereby necrosis that evolve to a septal abscess in which cultures reveal saprophyte bacteria. Cartilage necrosis and destruction can produce impaired breathing and aesthetic deformities with collapse of the dorsum and the tip of the nose. Read More

Fibrin sealant: alternative to nasal packing in endonasal operations. A prospective randomized study.

Isr Med Assoc J 2005 Sep;7(9):571-4

Department of Otolaryngology, Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, Zerifin, Israel.

Objectives: Endonasal operations such as septoplasty, rhinoplasty, nasal septal reconstruction and conchotomy, as well as endoscopic sinus surgery, especially when combined with turbinectomy and/or submucous resection of the septum, may produce bleeding and postoperative hematoma requiring postoperative hemostatic measures. Since nasal packing may cause pain, rhinorrhea and inconvenience, a more effective and less uncomfortable hemostatic technique is needed.

Objectives: To compare the hemostatic efficacy of the second-generation surgical sealant (Quixil in Europe and Israel, Crosseal in the USA) to that of nasal packing in endonasal surgery. Read More

Clinica Otorinolaringoiatrica, Università di Palermo, Azienda Ospedaliera Policlinico P. Giaccone, Via P. E. Giudici n. 37, Palermo 90127, Italy.

Unlabelled: A nasal septal abscess is usually the result of an infected hematoma of the septum. A secondary septal abscess may be the result of infections extending from any of the neighbouring tissues. The necrosis of septal cartilage may lead to nasal deformities and severe impairment of nasal patency and growth. Read More

Nontraumatic nasal septal abscesses in the immunocompromised: etiology, recognition, treatment, and sequelae.

Am J Rhinol 2000 Jan-Feb;14(1):39-43

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of California San Francisco 94143, USA.

Proper management of a nasal septal abscess requires prompt diagnosis, adequate surgical drainage, and antibiotics to prevent the potentially dangerous spread of infection and the development of severe functional and cosmetic sequelae. Most septal abscesses are the result of trauma to the nose with septal hematoma and subsequent infection. We present our experience with nasal septal abscesses in five immunocompromised patients without history of nasal trauma. Read More

Simple suction drainage: an adjunct to septal surgery.

Ann Plast Surg 1990 Feb;24(2):191-3

Department of Plastic Surgery, Eastern Virginia Graduate School of Medicine, Norfolk.

Postoperative hematoma is a complication of septal surgery that can be associated with significant morbidity and possibly even mortality in some cases. A simple suction drainage technique using a scalp vein cannula and vacuum tube can prevent a septal hematoma without the need for bulky nasal packing (with its attendant nasal obstruction and risk of bleeding on removal). The technique is also useful for postoperative drainage of an established septal hematoma or abscess secondary to trauma. Read More
