173 Possible Causes for Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis, Orbital Cellulitis

  • Acute Sinusitis

    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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Orbital cellulitis (orbital/preseptal/postseptal cellulitis) accounted for 32.8% of patients, intracranial complications (epidural/subdural abscess, cavernous sinus thrombosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] sinus thrombosis (1), and Pott's puffy tumors (3).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ethmoid Sinusitis

    The presumptive diagnosis was orbital cellulitis secondary to chronic ethmoid sinusitis. Endoscopic sinusotomy and bilateral ethmoidectomies were performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sometime ethmoid sinus infection can spread to other parts and cause orbital cellulitis, cavernous sinus thrombosis etc. it can become a life threatening condition when the[tandurust.com] Clinical implications of orbital cellulitis.

  • Frontal Sinusitis

    These findings led to the diagnosis: synergistic bacterial inflammation of the frontal sinus, with osteomyelitis and orbital cellulitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These complications include cavernous sinus thrombosis, orbital infection, meningitis, and subdural empyema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] cellulitis) Neurological signs and symptoms indicate intracranial complications Meningitis is one of the important intracranial complications of acute frontal sinusitis.[drpaulose.com]

  • Sinusitis

    We report a case of invasive fungal sinusitis caused by Scopulariopsis in 57 year-old man who had recurrence of orbital cellulitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Late on, there may be evidence of a cavernous sinus thrombosis.[patient.info] Moschos, Orbital cellulitis, orbital subperiosteal and intraorbital abscess.[doi.org]

  • Orbital Infection

    […] and management of orbital cellulitis.[books.google.com] Abstract Cavernous sinus thrombosis may occur as a secondary threatening condition to spread from local or distant foci of infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cavernous sinus thrombosis is characterized by bilateral photophobia, proptosis, ophthalmoplegia, hypoesthesia of the cornea.[symptoma.com]

  • Orbital Abscess

    Nine cases of orbital cellulitis imaged with MRI were retrospectively reviewed, including six cases with pyogenic abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Associated findings on CT scan included: sinus disease (n 8), cavernous sinus thrombosis (n 2) and subdural empyema (n 2).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Computed tomography scan of the head and orbit showed orbital abscess and right cavernous sinus thrombosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis

    A case of cavernous sinus thrombosis is usually a complication of severe orbital cellulitis and meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cavernous sinus thrombosis (CST) is the formation of a blood clot within the cavernous sinus, a cavity at the base of the brain which drains deoxygenated blood from the brain[en.wikipedia.org] This case illustrates the importance of prompt assessment and treatment of orbital cellulitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dacryocystitis

    KEYWORDS: Dacryocystitis; lacrimal system; orbit; orbital cellulitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When this occurs, it may lead to blindness, cavernous sinus thrombosis, and even death.[eyedayclinic.gr] sinus thrombosis Basal cell carcinoma of the eyelid Squamous cell carcinoma of the eyelid Actinomycosis Blepharitis Nasolacrimal duct obstruction Sarcoidosis Necrotizing[visualdx.com]
