AbstractObjectives: To present the clinical features, determine the causes and evaluate the prognosis of orbital apex syndrome in patients of Songklanagarind Hospital.Methods: A retrospective review was conducted of patients diagnosed with orbital apex syndrome between January 1, 2002 and December 31, 2008.Results: In our series, the major cause of orbital apex syndrome was carotid-cavernous sinus fistula, for which 30 patients were diagnosed. After excluding those patients whose condition was c...

Ocular ischemic syndrome encompasses a spectrum of clinical findings that result from chronic ocular hypoperfusion. It is relatively uncommon, and the diagnosis may be difficult to make because of its variable presentations. The presence of an ocular ischemic syndrome always implies underlying severe carotid occlusive disease and may be its sole clinical manifestation. It may also result from other causes of reduced blood flow to the eye and the orbit such as systemic vasculitis. Besides visual ...

Two cases of orbital swelling after sub-Tenon's anesthesia are reported. The first patient presented 3 days postoperatively with proptosis and conjunctival chemosis. Computed tomography showed nonspecific inflammation of the orbital soft tissue. Signs and symptoms resolved after systemic steroids. The second patient presented with similar signs and mild pain on the fourth postoperative day. Computed tomography showed a similar diffuse orbital inflammation. The patient was treated with oral stero...

Purpose of reviewVisual loss from optic neuropathy and ophthalmoplegia involving multiple cranial nerves are the hallmarks of an orbital apex syndrome. Historically, the terms superior orbital fissure, orbital apex, and cavernous sinus have been used to define the anatomic locations of a disease pro

Abstract Purpose To report a series of cases of angioedema related to the use of hyaluronidase in cataract surgery. Design Observational case series. Methods Three eyes of three patients who had periorbital angioedema after phacoemulsification at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, between April 2001 and May 2002 were retrospectively skin tested for allergies using the prick technique. Results Skin testing was positive in all three patients for allergy to hyaluronidase (150 U/cc) and histamin...

A 70-year-old woman previously exposed to hyaluronidase during ophthalmic surgery had excision of hypertrophic bulbar conjunctival tissue in the right eye. Hyaluronidase was added to the peribulbar anesthetic agent. Five days postoperatively, the patient presented with proptosis in the right eye, extraocular muscle restriction, and decreased visual acuity. She was apyrexial with a normal white cell count; computed tomography of the orbits showed a diffuse increase in soft tissue density. Clinica...

Orbital pseudotumor, also known as idiopathic orbital inflammatory syndrome (IOIS), may have protean clinical manifestations. Some presentations of IOIS may mimic common conditions such as orbital cellulitis and optic neuritis. IOIS should be considered a diagnosis of exclusion, with evaluation directed toward eliminating other causes of orbital disease. Orbital magnetic resonance imaging is the single most important diagnostic test, but serologic studies are necessary to exclude a systemic caus...
