Orbital abscess

Survey of Ophthalmology
A HornblassC Grimes

Abstract

Although orbital or subperiosteal abscess may originate from a number of sources, paranasal ethmoidal sinus disease is the most common source of infection, particularly in children. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are necessary to prevent severe visual loss and even death. The authors review the five-group classification of orbital abscess and summarize data regarding source, bacteriology, treatment and visual results from 13 series reporting 148 patients. Four new cases are presented in detail. Diagnostic procedures, including laboratory testing, sinus radiography, ultrasound and CT scanning, are discussed and recommendations are given for medical and surgical management.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
