TORRES COTRINA, Félix Antonio et al. Subperiosteal abscess of the orbit: a case report. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2005, vol.16, n.1, pp. 74-79. ISSN 1729-214X.

A 35 year old man patient was admitted to the Ophthalmology Service of Hospital Nacional Arzobispo Loayza with 15 days of proptosis, diplopia, limited ocular motility, ocular pain, and visual acuity exam just count fingers to 40cm in his left eye. He had no fever, no trauma, no sinusitis, and there was no evidence of previous intake of any medication. He had dental cavities without treatment. Corticoid therapy was installed for an inespecific inflammatory syndrome of the orbit. A week later purulent material was obtained after puncture and then antibiotic therapy was installed. Orbital signs worsened initially and after a few days a favorable response was obtained. The case is discussed and pertinent literature reviewed.

Palabras llave : Subperiosteal Abscess of the orbit; sinusitis; inflammatory pseudotumor of the orbit; odontogenic infections.
