Example text

Concomitant sinus surgery is indicated if sinusitis is present. The refractory nature of orbital abscesses in adolescents and adults is thought to be due to the multiple drug-resistant pathogens, in particular, anaerobic organisms. The majority of patients with orbital cellulitis and abscesses respond to appropriate medical or surgical treatment or to a combination of these. Orbital infections rarely spread posteriorly to the cavernous sinus. Cavernous sinus thrombosis is often heralded by the rapid progression of proptosis and by anesthesia in both the first and second divisions of the trigeminal nerve; in rare cases, by contralateral ophthalmoplegia as well.

In special cases, the biopsy can be performed under either ultrasonographic or CT control. Although a fine-bore needle occasionally yields a sufficient cell block, the specimen is usually limited to cytologic study. This technique may not permit as firm a diagnosis as is possible with larger biopsy specimens, in which light and electron microscopy can be used to evaluate the histologic pattern. See BCSC Section 4, Ophthalmic Pathology and Intraocular Tumors, for more extensive discussion of pathology.
