Purpose Orbital cellulitis is a potentially blinding and life-threatening condition. There are little published data on the incidence of orbital cellulitis and little is known about the differences between children and adults affected. The purpose of this study was to identify the incidence, aetiology, management and outcome of orbital cellulitis in children and adults in Scotland. Methods This study was a 1-year prospective observational study using the Scottish Ophthalmic Surveillance Unit… 
Non-medial infectious orbital cellulitis: etiology, causative organisms, radiologic findings, management and complications
TLDR
Non-medial orbital cellulitis is an uncommon but sight-threatening and life-threatening condition and timely diagnosis and accurate management reduce morbidity and mortality.
Current clinical diagnosis and management of orbital cellulitis
TLDR
The goal of this review is to summarize the state of the art in diagnosis and management of orbital cellulitis and focused on the key articles which have changed clinical management of this disease.
Epidemiological characteristics of orbital cellulitis among adult population in the Split region, Croatia
TLDR
Orbital cellulitis in adult patients is a relatively rare disease but with a possible fatal ending and damage to vision, and appears to be more common in colder months, because sinusitis occurred more often then.
Pediatrics Orbital and Preseptal Cellulitis: A 2-year Experience

Care and outcomes of Canadian children hospitalised with periorbital and orbital cellulitis: protocol for a multicentre, retrospective cohort study
TLDR
The care and outcomes of Canadian children hospitalised with periorbital and orbital cellulitis are described to identify areas where care can be improved, practice standardised, unnecessary diagnostic imaging reduced, pharmacotherapy rationalised and where trials are needed.

Predictors of surgical intervention and visual outcome in bacterial orbital cellulitis
TLDR
It is found that the abscess volume was strongly predictive of surgical intervention and the presence of relative afferent pupillary defect can predict the worst visual outcome.

TLDR
Empirical oral ciprofloxacin and clindamycin combination may be as safe and effective as i.v. therapy in the management of orbital cellulitis.

TLDR
A high prevalence of acute dacryocystitis was found as a potential cause of the cellulitis in children admitted to hospital between October 2002 and October 2003 and children with preseptal and orbital cellulitis responded better to cefotaxime than tocefuroxime.
