1,014 Possible Causes for Eschar Formation, Neutrophil Count Increased, Orbital Apex Syndrome

  • Periorbital Cellulitis

    Orbital apex syndrome (seen with orbital abscess and cavernous sinus thrombosis. It will be bilateral in patients with cavernous sinus thrombosis).[] formation leading to scarring Meningitis Orbital cellulitis Intracranial extension of infection Periorbital necrotizing fasciitis - A potential complication with devastating[] apex syndrome or cavernous sinus thrombosis CT of orbit and sinuses to confirm sinus disease, rule out mass, rule out orbital foreign body if h/o trauma (even remote), rule[]

  • Mucormycosis

    The lab results showed leukocytosis with a 16,500 count, in predominance of Neutrophils 76.8%., and ESR increase, with negative blood cultures.[] The common presenting symptoms are headache, fever, sinusitis, facial swelling, and unilateral orbital apex syndrome ( 1 , 3 – 5 ).[] Cutaneous mucormycosis produces cellulitis that progresses to dermal necrosis and black eschar formation.[]

  • Aspergillosis

    Use colony-stimulating factors to increase neutrophil counts if neutropenia exists.[] Disseminated infection CNS : Multiple abscess formation with varied neurological manifestations (cramps, focal neurological deficits ) Heart : Aspergillus endocarditis Invasive[] Despite having a normal neutrophil count, affected patients have functional neutropenia because the function of the neutrophils is inhibited by the use of high-dose steroids[]

  • Orbital Cellulitis

    The differential diagnoses included orbital cellulites leading to orbital apex syndrome, idiopathic orbital inflammation, uveal effusion syndrome, lymphoproliferative disease[] Aspergillosis initially results in chronic proptosis and decreased vision, while mucormycosis gives rise to the orbital apex syndrome (involving cranial nerves II, III, IV[] COMPLICATIONS Optic neuropathy Cavernous sinus thrombosis Orbital Apex Syndrome Exposure keratitis Orbital abscess CRAO Intraocular spread of infection Septicemia Pyaemia[]

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

    As might be expected, more changes in laboratory measures were recorded in the groups receiving steroid therapy; increases in hemoglobin levels, peripheral-neutrophil counts[] Orbital apex syndrome is a rare but severe ocular complication of herpes zoster ophthalmicus.[] Abstract Orbital apex syndrome is a rare neuro-ophthalmic manifestation of herpes zoster virus infection.[]
