rence.4 5 Because the results reported by several authors cannot be equally compared because of differences in their detailed records of courses of diseases, it is hard to select a unique factor affecting the ophthalmic findings in these patients. Recently, massive corticosteroid treatment of VKH was clinically reinvestigated.6 Yamamoto et al6 found a similarity in the prognosis of patients treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents and those treated with massive doses of systemic… 

Periorbital necrotizing fasciitis – a review

Mortality caused by NF arising from the periorbital area seems to be on the decline, however, it is important to recognize it early and institute treatment to avoid toxic shock that leads to death.

Periorbital necrotising fasciitis.

The delay between initial debridement and initiating parenteral broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy should be considered the most critical factor influencing morbidity and mortality.

Eyelids Necrotizing Fasciitis in Children

Purpose: Two cases of eyelids Necrotizing Fasciitis in children were presented. The first one with chicken pox, and the second was previously healthy. Design: Interventional Report cases. Methods:

Physicians and ophthalmologists must be aware of the predisposing factors, signs and symptoms suggestive of this condition, as well as predisposing and clinical differentiating points from other infectious and inflammatory disorders of the periorbital region.
