- Indicators for imaging in periorbital cellulitis secondary to rhinosinusitis. [Journal Article]
- EAEur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Feb 15
- CONCLUSIONS: We 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. Other features can identify patients who do not have proptosis and/or limitation of extraocular movements but do have significant risk of SPOA, and in these cases performing an imaging study is strongly suggested.

Sinus infections can be complicated by ocular infections and, in late phases, by brain parenchyma infection. The article debates the case of a 12-year-old patient suffering from paucisymptomatic maxillo-spheno-ethmoidal rhinosinusitis, which was later complicated by orbital cellulitis, ending with the development of a brain abscess. The treatment is complex, initially targeting the source of the infection through draining the collection by middle maxillary antrostomy and anterior posterior ethmoidectomy, then the ablation of the brain abscess and postoperatively with prolonged massive antibiotherapy.Abbreviation:URI = upper respiratory infection, CT = computer tomography, MRI = magnetic resonance imaging, BA = brain abscess, VAS = visual scale of pain, ENT = ear, nose, throat, RE VA = right eye visual acuity, RE = right eye, CSF = cerebrospinal fluid.

Acute and chronic sinusitis can give rise to a wide array of intracranial and orbital complications. These complications include brain abscess, subdural empyema, epidural abscess, meningitis, venous sinus thrombosis, frontal bone osteomyelitis, and orbital cellulitis and abscess. Despite numerous medical advances, these complications carry a risk of mortality and significant morbidity.

This review summarizes three case series published in the field of oculoplastic surgery in the year 2015. The first article describes the use of hedgehog pathway inhibitors for medical therapy of advanced periocular basal cell carcinoma and basal cell nevus syndrome. The second describes the use of c-reactive protein as a marker for starting treatment with steroids in children with orbital cellulitis. The third article presents an endoscopic medial orbital fat decompression technique for treatment of proptosis in thyroid eye disease.
- [Orbital cellulitis complicated by subperiosteal abscess due to Streptococcus pyogenes infection]. [Journal Article]
- BMBol Med Hosp Infant Mex 2017 Mar - Apr; 74(2):134-140
- CONCLUSIONS: Due to the implementation of vaccination schemes against H. influenza and S. pneumoniae since the 90s, the cases by these pathogens have decreased, causing new bacteria to take place as the cause of the infection. The importance of considering S. pyogenes as an etiology of orbital cellulitis is the rapid progression to abscess formation, and the few cases described in the literature.
- Temporal Expression of Genes in Biofilm-Forming Ocular Candida albicans Isolated From Patients With Keratitis and Orbital Cellulitis. [Journal Article]
- IOInvest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2018 Jan 01; 59(1):528-538
- CONCLUSIONS: This is the first study showing similarity in expression of genes in biofilm-forming ocular and nonocular isolates of C. albicans, suggesting that upregulated genes could serve as a potential target for developing therapeutic strategies.
- Right orbital edema masquerading a hematologic malignancy. [Journal Article]
- SOSAGE Open Med Case Rep 2018; 6:2050313X17751838
- CONCLUSIONS: This case illustrates an unusual presentation of multiple myeloma which was eye swelling caused by bony infiltration in the calvarium. Although hematologic malignancies tend to have more specific signs and symptoms, they should be included in the differentials of unilateral orbital edema.
- A Case of Right-Sided Direct Carotid Cavernous Fistula: A Diagnostic Challenge. [Case Reports]
- AJAm J Case Rep 2018 Jan 12; 19:47-51
- CONCLUSIONS: Internists should have a low threshold of clinical suspicion for CCF in a patient with swollen red eyes in order to provide timely and proper management.
- Conservative Management for Subperiosteal Orbital Abscess in Adults: A 20-Year Experience. [Journal Article]
- AOAnn Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2018; 127(3):162-166
- CONCLUSIONS: A shift toward conservative treatment in cases of SPOA has long been integrated in the management protocols, mainly in children under 9 years old. The presumed worse prognosis in adults is not supported in our study, and a conservative treatment is urged to be considered in this group of patients albeit the more extensive radiologic involvement of their sinuses.

- Knowledge and Attitude of Dental Surgeons about Ocular Complications Due to Dental Infection. [Journal Article]
- JPJ Pharm Bioallied Sci 2017; 9(Suppl 1):S147-S153
- CONCLUSIONS: In our observation, dentist's knowledge about ocular complications due to dental infection was poor, and the awareness and practice of taking preventive measures were satisfactory. There is need for providing adequate information about ocular problems in the curriculum of dentistry. Dentists should be trained about prevention and initial management of ocular complications due to dental infection through special educations such as continuing dental educations, workshops, and symposium.
