of nosocomial patients remained fairly constant. Patients with ophthalmic MRSA tended to be younger than other MRSA patients (P = .023). The most common manifestation of ophthalmic MRSA infection was preseptal cellulitis and/or lid abscess followed by conjunctivitis, but sight-threatening infections, including corneal ulcers, endophthalmitis, orbital cellulitis, and blebitis, also occurred. Empirical antibiotic coverage was initially prescribed in 48 (98%) of ophthalmic cases and did not adequately cover (...) for the MRSA isolate in 24 (50%).CA-MRSA is becoming increasingly prevalent, and ophthalmologists will see more ophthalmic MRSA infections. Although ophthalmic CA-MRSA commonly presents as preseptal lid infection and conjunctivitis, sight-threatening infections also occur. Ophthalmologists must identify MRSA patients, adjust empirical treatment regimens where MRSA is endemic, and take steps to control emergence of resistant organisms in both inpatient and outpatient practices.

, and the common causal link with underlying (thyroid) disease has been known since antiquity. [ , ] In adults, thyroid orbitopathy is the most common cause of unilateral and bilateral exophthalmos. In children, unilateral exophthalmos is commonly caused by orbital cellulitis, whereas neuroblastoma and leukaemia are likely if the condition is bilateral. Anatomy [ , ] The orbit is a pear-shaped cavity, the 'stalk' being formed by the optic canal.

In this article In This Article Orbital Swellings In this article When you are presented with a patient with orbital swelling, there are three questions you need to answer: What could this be? Is this swelling of something within the orbit (eg, thyroid eye disease)? Is it a bony problem (eg, congenital or trauma)? Could this be a more external soft tissue problem (eg, orbital cellulitis) or even not an orbital problem at all but one adjacent to it that appears

Eyelid swelling and erythema as the only signs of subperiosteal abscess. On clinical grounds it is usually easy to distinguish between preseptal cellulitis, a cutaneous infection not threatening to vision, and orbital cellulitis, a potentially vision threatening infection of the orbital tissues generally arising from paranasal sinusitis. We recently cared for two patients with a clinical diagnosis of preseptal cellulitis who had CT scan evidence of subperiosteal abscess. Antibiotic therapy

Chlamydial conjunctivitis presenting as pre septal cellulitis Chlamydia conjuctivitis results from infection by chlamydia trachomatis, the commonest treatable sexually transmitted infection in Europe. Its clinical manifestations involve the conjunctiva and the cornea. The inflammation under the upper eyelid may be sufficient to present as ptosis, however previously it has not been documented to cause a preseptal cellulitis. We present such a case. A 15-year-old girl was diagnosed with a left (...) viral conjunctivitis. Five days later, she returned with marked oedema of the left upper and lower lids accompanied by erythema. The tarsal conjunctiva revealed follicles and large papillae and extra ocular movements revealed discomfort on elevation. A secondary diagnosis of bacterial pre septal cellulitis was made and the treatment was changed a broad spectrum oral antibiotic. On review at two days, the patient now complained of a large amount of purulent discharge in association with the marked
