Pediatric intraorbital abscess: Early recognition and management.

Clin Case Rep 2019 Mar 11;7(3):593-594. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Craigavon Area Hospital (Southern Health and Social Care Trust) Portadown UK.

Orbital involvement occurs in 85% of complicated acute sinusitis and is more prevalent in children. Prompt differentiation between the more common periorbital (preseptal) cellulitis and infections, posterior to the orbital septum (including orbital cellulitis/abscess), is essential due to the latter's risk of irreversible optic neuropathy, intracranial spread and death.

What Is the Best Treatment for a Subperiosteal Abscess? A Case Report in a Pediatric Patient.

J Pediatr Health Care 2019 Mar 11. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Subperiosteal abscess is a condition that typically presents as collection of pus in the space between the periorbital and the lamina papyracea as a result of the migration and spread of an infection, such as sinusitis and ethmoiditis. The low incidence requires a high index of suspicion to be considered in the differential diagnosis when encountering this life-threatening illness. This case highlights the significance of a prompt and accurate diagnosis for this infrequent condition, because it may progress to blindness, meningitis, intracranial abscess, and death. Read More

A Patient With Periorbital Necrotizing Fasciitis by Klebsiella pneumoniae.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Feb 9. Epub 2019 Feb 9.

Department of Ophthalmology.

Periorbital necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a very rare disease with a mortality rate of 10% to 20%, requiring rapid diagnosis and active treatment. The most common causative organism is Group A β-hemolytic Streptococcus, and trauma, operative incisions, pre-existing ulcers, or injection sites may be predisposing factors for periorbital NF. In this study, the subject, who had a medical history of diabetes mellitus and chronic liver disease, developed periorbital NF suddenly and without any specific triggering factors, and Klebsiella pneumoniae was identified in a necrotic tissue biopsy.

Necrotizing Fasciitis Following Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus in an Immunocompromised Patient.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2019 20;2019:4534153. Epub 2019 Jan 20.

Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli, Università Cattolica del S. Cuore, Rome, Italy.

Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a rare infection that spreads rapidly along the subcutaneous soft tissue planes. NF rarely involves the periorbital region due to the excellent blood supply of this region. We report a case of periorbital necrotising fasciitis following herpes zoster (HZ) in an immunocompromised 70-year-old patient with a dramatically rapid evolution into septic shock. Read More

Systematic review of the role of corticosteroids in cervicofacial infections.

Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

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 ( ODOCOILEUS VIRGINIANUS) WITH BLUETONGUE VIRUS SEROTYPE 3.

J Wildl Dis 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

4   Department of Pathology, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia, 501 DW 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 ( Odocoileus virginianus; WTD) found dead in Virginia and West Virginia 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 sham-inoculated 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 2018 Dec 13. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

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.

Differing House Finch Cytokine Expression Responses to Original and Evolved Isolates of .

Front Immunol 2018 22;9:13. Epub 2018 Jan 22.

Department of Biological Sciences, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA, United States.

The recent emergence of the poultry bacterial pathogen (MG) in free-living house finches (), which causes mycoplasmal conjunctivitis in this passerine bird species, resulted in a rapid coevolutionary arms-race between MG and its novel avian host. Despite extensive research on the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of this host-pathogen system over the past two decades, the immunological responses of house finches to MG infection remain poorly understood. We developed seven new probe-based one-step quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction assays to investigate mRNA expression of house finch cytokine genes (, and , syn. Read More

The Reliability of the Transconjunctival Approach for Orbital Exposure: Measurement of Positional Changes in the Lower Eyelid.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2017 Dec 23;18(4):249-254. Epub 2017 Dec 23.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Inje University Haeundae Paik Hospital, Inje University College of Medicine, Busan, Korea.

Background: Lower eyelid incisions are widely used for the orbital approach in periorbital trauma and aesthetic surgery. In general, the subciliary approach is known to cause disposition of the lower eyelid by scarring the anterior lamella in some cases. On the other hand, many surgeons believe that a transconjunctival approach usually does not result in such complications and is a reliable method. Read More

When an Orbital Infection Isn't Infectious at All: A Review of Orbital Inflammatory Syndrome.

Pediatr Ann 2017 Nov;46(11):e433-e436

Orbital inflammatory syndrome (OIS) includes a wide range of clinical manifestations and may initially be misdiagnosed as orbital cellulitis due similar symptoms of fever, periorbital swelling, and pain with eye movements. A diagnosis of OIS requires evaluation for underlying systemic disorders including autoimmune disorders and thyroid disease. Symptoms typically improve rapidly after initiation of steroid therapy, although recurrence can occur. Read More
