Background: To review the epidemiology and management of orbital cellulitis in children. Methods: The medical records of children ≤18 years old and hospitalized from June 1, 1992, through May 31, 2002, at the Brenner Children's Hospital, with a discharge ICD-9 code indicating a diagnosis of orbital cellulitis and confirmed by computed tomography scan were reviewed. A literature search for additional studies for systematic review was also conducted. Results: Forty-one children with orbital…

It is concluded that CT scans should be obtained when SPA is suspected, and antimicrobial therapy should be directed toward the bacteria isolated from these abscesses.
Medical management of orbital cellulitis
An initial medical management approach is supported for most patients with subperiosteal or retrobulbar abscesses resulting in orbital cellulitis, after the introduction of a conservative medical management plan designed by pediatric infectious diseases, ophthalmology and otolaryngology services.
Management of orbital subperiosteal abscess in children.
Assessment of the efficacy and safety of transnasal endoscopic drainage of an orbital subperiosteal abscess in children and of the route of surgical drainage found that the external approach was associated with a longer hospital stay than either the endoscopic or the intravenous antibiotic approach.

Clinical implications of orbital cellulitis
A retrospective review of the clinical and laboratory data of 137 cases of orbital and perIORbital cellulitis was performed, and a distinction is made between the clinical entity of periorbitals cellulitis and orbital cellulitis.
