Ocul Immunol Inflamm 2020 Feb 14:1-9. Epub 2020 Feb 14.

Division of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Stellenbosch University, Cape Town, South Africa.

Both infective and neoplastic eyelid and orbital conditions in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected patients are often the result of opportunistic or co-infections (OI). In most cases, these clinical findings in younger patients alert the physician to suspected underlying HIV infection. When the eyelids and periorbital skin are primarily involved in OI with varicella-zoster virus it is called Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus. Read More

Care and outcomes of Canadian children hospitalised with periorbital and orbital cellulitis: protocol for a multicentre, retrospective cohort study.

BMJ Open 2019 12 22;9(12):e035206. Epub 2019 Dec 22.

Department of Paediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Introduction: Skin and soft tissue infections of the eye can be classified based on anatomic location as either anterior to the orbital septum (ie, periorbital cellulitis) or posterior to the orbital septum (ie, orbital cellulitis). These two conditions are often considered together in hospitalised children as clinical differentiation is difficult, especially in young children. Prior studies have identified variation in management of hospitalised children with orbital cellulitis; however, they have been limited either as single centre studies or by the use of administrative data which lacks clinical details important for interpreting variation in care.

Systematic review of the role of corticosteroids in cervicofacial infections.

Maxillofacial surgery Trainees Research Collaborative, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow.

The role of corticosteroids in the management of cervicofacial infections continues to cause controversy. Systemic anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects that reduce swelling and improve symptoms in the head and neck may make these agents an effective addition to the antibiotics used and to surgical management, although this same effect may dull the physiological response to infection, and allow infections to progress. We have systematically reviewed the evidence for the use of corticosteroids in common cervicofacial infections following the PRISMA guidelines. Read More

EXPERIMENTAL INFECTION OF WHITE-TAILED DEER () WITH BLUETONGUE VIRUS SEROTYPE 3.

J Wildl Dis 2019 07 3;55(3):627-636. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

4 Department of Pathology, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia, 501 D. W. Brooks Dr., Athens, Georgia 30602, USA.

Bluetongue virus serotype 3 (BTV-3) has been found in the US since 1999 and was recently identified in white-tailed deer (WTD; ) found dead in Virginia, US and West Virginia, US in 2016. Bluetongue viruses are known to cause pathologic changes in WTD; however, the relative virulence and pathogenicity of BTV-3 in WTD is unknown. In our study, eight WTD fawns, 6-12 wk old, were needle inoculated subcutaneously with a field isolate of BTV-3, with one fawn shaminoculated as a control during July 2017; all were monitored to determine the pathogenicity of BTV-3 in WTD.

A Rare Cause for Recurrent Implant-Related Inflammation of Orbit: Dacryocystitis.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 May/Jun;30(3):e195-e197

Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery Department of Mersin University Medical Faculty, Mersin, Turkey.

Ultra-thin porous polyethylene has been widely preferred in orbital blow out fracture repair for many years as a safe and stable material. Delayed complications related to the implant in orbital blow out fracture repair are very rare and usually begin as a periorbital inflammation. Infections and tissue reaction to the foreign body are regarded as main causes for implant-related inflammation of which symptoms may vary among the patients and may involve subacute and chronic eyelid swelling, skin redness, pain, conjunctival injection, proptosis, and acute orbital inflammation.
