    Pott's puffy tumour mimicking preseptal cellulitis.
    Clin Exp Optom 2008 Jul;91(4):400-2
    VA Boston Medical Center, West Roxbury Campus, West Roxbury, Massachusetts, USA.
    Periorbital swelling can be secondary to local infections (for example, hordeolum) or reflective of an adjacent infection (for example, dental disease). Rarely, periorbital swelling can indicate underlying sinus disease; Pott's puffy tumour is a unique and serious form of this process. This paper presents an unusual way in which a smouldering sinusitis can erode through bone and result in orbital cellulitis or intracranial infection. Read More

    Ocular infection and inflammation.
    Emerg Med Clin North Am 2008 Feb;26(1):57-72, vi
    Emergency Medicine Residency, New York University/Bellevue Hospital Center, 462 First Avenue, New York, NY 10016, USA.
    Managing the inflamed or infected eye in the emergency setting presents a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge to the emergency physician; the causes and prognoses range from benign, self-limited illness to organ-threatening pathology. A careful history, with attention to comorbid illnesses and time course, is paramount, as is knowledge of the complete ophthalmologic examination. Much of the organ morbidity is ameliorated with prompt therapy in the emergency department and by initiating ophthalmologic consultation. Read More

    Periorbital necrotising fasciitis: delay in diagnosis results in loss of lower eyelid.
    Int Ophthalmol 2008 Feb 26;28(1):67-9. Epub 2007 Jun 26.
    The Eye Care Centre, Leighton Hospital, Crewe CW1 4QJ, UK.
    Necrotising fasciitis (NF) is an extremely rare skin and soft tissue infection with extensive necrosis of the subcutaneous tissue and underlying fascia, which usually affects the limbs and trunk. It rarely affects the head and neck region because of the excellent blood supply in this region. We report a case of NF initially misdiagnosed as a traumatic pre-septal cellulitis following self-puncture of a hordeolum externum (stye) and its resistance to aggressive antibiotic therapy resulting in the loss of the lower eyelid.
