262 Possible Causes for Brain Abscess, Orbital Cellulitis

  • Acute Sinusitis

    Serious complications (e.g. brain abscess) were rare. We found that antibiotics are not a first-choice treatment for adults with short-duration sinus infection.[] Abstract We report a case with orbital cellulitis and irreversible visual loss caused by asymptomatic acute sinusitis in a patient without symptoms or history of sinusitis[] Orbital cellulitis (orbital/preseptal/postseptal cellulitis) accounted for 32.8% of patients, intracranial complications (epidural/subdural abscess, cavernous sinus thrombosis[]

  • Ethmoid Sinusitis

  • Sinusitis

    Infection can also spread upwards to cause problems such as meningitis or brain abscess. These are very rare. What investigations might be considered?[] We report a case of invasive fungal sinusitis caused by Scopulariopsis in 57 year-old man who had recurrence of orbital cellulitis.[] In rare cases, untreated sinusitis can lead to meningitis, a brain abscess, or an infection of the bone. Talk to your doctor about your concerns.[]

  • Staphylococcus Aureus Infection

    S. aureus is capable of infecting nearly every tissue in the body resulting in cellulitis, pneumonia, osteomyelitis, endocarditis, brain abscesses, bacteremia, and more.[] Community-associated Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus Causing Orbital Cellulitis in Australian Children. Pediatr Infect Dis J. 2011 Nov. 30(11):1003-1006.[] S. aureus causes about 10 to 15 percent of brain abscesses and 60 to 90 percent of epidural abscesses and septic venous thromboses.[]

  • Osteomyelitis of the Frontal Bone

Or it may be associated with brain abscess and meningitis or dural sinus thrombosis.[]

  • Frontal Sinusitis

    A review of recent experiences with fulminating frontal sinusitis and its intracranial complications such as subdural empyema, brain abscess, epidural abscess, and meningitis[] These findings led to the diagnosis: synergistic bacterial inflammation of the frontal sinus, with osteomyelitis and orbital cellulitis.[] Intracranial complications include extradural, subdural and brain abscesses, meningitis and cavernous sinus thrombophlebitis.[]

  • Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis

    This case highlights the challenge of making early diagnoses of a brain abscess; since it has symptomology mimicking cavernous sinus thrombosis .This is due to the involvement[] A case of cavernous sinus thrombosis is usually a complication of severe orbital cellulitis and meningitis.[] Brain abscess and parameningeal infections.
