Corticosteroids for periorbital and orbital cellulitis.

The included study compared theUse of corticosteroids in addition to antibiotics to the use of antibiotics alone for the treatment of orbital cellulitis, and to assess their effectiveness and safety in children and in adults separately.

Indicators for imaging in periorbital cellulitis secondary to rhinosinusitis

It is confirmed that patients with proptosis and/or limitation of extraocular movements are at high risk for developing SPOA, yet many do not have these predictors and in these cases performing an imaging study is strongly suggested.

Characteristics of Atypical Orbital Complications of Sinusitis.

With future studies, new surgical criteria, including retinal destruction, location of the sinusitis, the onset of ophthalmological symptoms, and culture results may be added to the classical surgical criteria to manage orbital complications of paranasal sinus infection cases.

Pansinusitis with orbital cellulitis

Current investigative strategies and management options in the treatment of orbital cellulitis are described to establish their effectiveness and possible complications due to late intervention and imaging studies for detection of orbital abscess, the use of antibiotics and early drainage have mitigated visual morbidity significantly.

Acute Exteriorized Ethmoiditis of the Child: About 23 Cases Diagnosis and Management

The exteriorised acute ethmoiditis is a relatively common complication of rhinopharyngitis in children and it's a real emergency diagnostic and therapeutic.

Clinical profile and management outcome of orbital cellulitis in a tertiary care centre

The purpose of this study was to review the causes and clinical features of patients with orbital cellulitis in a tertiary care center and to assess the effectiveness of treatment and the complications in the centre.

Orbital Perivenous Abscess Complicating the Diagnosis and Management of Orbital Cellulitis.

An 11-year-old female presented with orbital cellulitis, bacterial sinusitis, enlarged left superior ophthalmic vein, dural venous sinuses, and internal jugular vein and was started on intravenous antibiotics and anticoagulation with limited improvement in orbital signs and symptoms.

Characteristics of patients treated for orbital cellulitis: An analysis of inpatient data

The authors used the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) database to analyze the epidemiologic features of pediatric and adult patients admitted for the treatment of orbital cellulitis and to examine associations with surgical management.
