Despite aggressive therapy for the scleritis, the patient had complications of multifocal scleral abscesses and exudative retinal detachment. Following surgical debridement of scleral abscesses on three separate occasions and vigorous irrigation of the exposed scleral bed with antibiotics, the pathogen was eventually eradicated with subretinal. Clinically, a mucopurulent discharge or scleral abscess may be sufficient signs to signal infection in the absence of a tissue culture and sensitivity test. 23 A complete blood count may reveal elevated white blood cells Scleral buckle elements may also cause sterile inflammation or orbital pseudocellulitis [3, 6, 7]. The radiologic features of scleral buckles and infected scleral buckles with or without orbital cellulitis have been described [1-3, 8] Scleral buckle infections range in clinical appearance from pain, conjunctivitis, and redness to orbital cellulitis or even scleral abscesses with vitritis [1-4]. Treatment of such infections includes systemic and topical antibiotics at first but often requires explanation of the buckle [ 1 - 3 , 5 ] Acute infections associated with silicone scleral buckles may show diffuse scleral thickening and preseptal soft tissue swelling with enhancement on imaging (Fig. 7.11). Scleral thickening may decrease as infection improves in response to appropriate antibiotic therapy
Orbital appendages The lacrimal gland is located superolaterally in the orbit. Diseases of the lacrimal gland can be divided into granulomatous, glandular and developmental (see Table). Secretions go medially across the globe and are collected in the punctum and then go into the lacrimal sac. From the lacrimal sac secretions travel inferiorly to the nasal lacrimal duct, which drains under the. Scleritis is the inflammation in the episcleral and scleral tissues with injection in both superficial and deep episcleral vessels. It may involve the cornea, adjacent episclera and the uvea and thus can be vision-threatening. Scleritis is often associated with an underlying systemic disease in up to 50% of patients A collaborative approach among specialties, in particular ophthalmology and radiology, would be important as a history of cutaneous infection, sinusitis, trauma with or without orbital fracture, dental procedure, strabismus surgery, or scleral banding are associated with orbital cellulitis [ 5 ]
If scleral necrosis is severe, progression is rapid, or if there are multifocal abscesses not responding to medical treatment, surgical debridement of scleral abscess and irrigation with either 2.5% betadine solution or with broad spectrum antibiotics or antifungals such as 2% voriconazole has been recommended The experiments described in this paper were designed to reproduce in animals the scleral abscess, which occasionally follows scleral buckling procedures for treatment of retinal detachment, and to determine the factors responsible for the production of abscess. Materials The animals used were adult, pigmented rabbits
Radiographic imaging revealed an intraconal orbital abscess, and she underwent left lateral orbitotomy with abscess drainage, with continued antibiotics and a tapering dose of steroids. To our knowledge, this is the first case of orbital cellulitis and intraconal abscess after strabismus surgery in an adult Imaging for Unilateral Proptosis. Clinical findings alone won't always be enough to make the diagnosis. Here's advice on radiologic testing and what it may reveal. Clinical evaluation of the orbit involves three critical steps: (1) taking a detailed history; (2) conducting a clinical exam of the extraocular muscles (EOMs), assessing. Ultrasonography. Ultrasonography is an excellent imaging modality when evaluating cellulitis of the superficial soft tissues to identify a potentially drainable abscess .In a child with presumed preseptal periorbital cellulitis without clinical concern for infection involving the orbit, imaging is usually not required, but ultrasound can be helpful (Fig. 3)
To report the unusual occurrence of a recurrent scleral abscess after uncomplicated cataract extraction. Methods Case report of a 77-year-old healthy woman. Results Multiple cultures and antibiotic treatments failed to resolve presenting symptoms. Gram stain, Gomori methenamine silver (GMS) stain, and all cultures were negative The sclera behind the rectus muscle insertion is extremely thin, only 0.3 mm. Because of the thin sclera, perforation into the globe is a significant risk during the scleral needle pass when suturing the muscle to sclera. The risk of perforation can be reduced by proper needle selection The optic canal (also called optic foramen ) is located at the orbital apex. It is bordered by two bony spikes of the lesser wing of the sphenoid bone, commonly referred to as the optic struts. The canal contains the optic nerve and ophthalmic artery, both of which are contained within a dural sheath. Box 20-1
Ubiquitous fungi of the Scedosporium apiospermum species complex (SASC) cause various opportunistic infections. Posterior subtenon triamcinolone acetonide (STTA) injection is a standard therapy for intraocular inflammation and macular edema. We report a case of Scedosporium apiospermum infectious scleritis after a posterior STTA injection. A 75-year-old man received a posterior STTA injection. . Computed tomography revealed a mixed collection containing necrotic debris and emphysematous change in the left lobe of the liver mainly in segments II and III. These radiological findings suggested emphysematous hepatitis (EH)
Scleritis is the inflammation in the episcleral and scleral tissues with injection in both superficial and deep episcleral vessels. It may involve the cornea, adjacent episclera and the uvea and thus can be vision-threatening. Scleritis is often associated with an underlying systemic disease in up to 50% of patients Keep the Bugs at Bay Microbial keratitis is a rare, but potentially devastating, complication of scleral contact lens wear. While uncommon, it could become a more widespread problem as scleral contact lenses become more popular, as contact lens wear is the most common predisposing factor for microbial keratitis. 23 Other risk factors for microbial keratitis include ocular surface disease. Infectious scleritis is a rare but important cause of scleral inflammation. It is usually associated with an underlying ocular (prior ocular surgery or trauma) or systemic risk factor. A 53-year-old apparently systemically healthy woman presenting with spontaneous-onset pain, redness and watering in the left eye for 10 days was diagnosed with culture-proven Pseudomonas aeruginosa anterior. Complex perirenal fluid collection with gas suggestive of emphysematous pyelonephritis with abscess.

The patient appears jaundiced with scleral icterus and has mild right upper quadrant abdominal pain without rebound or guarding. The remainder of her exam is unremarkable. An abdominal ultrasound is an excellent initial imaging modality to evaluate for fluid collections, abscesses, hematomas, and retained stones. Abscesses are. Canine Cornea and Sclera Developmental and Congenital Defects Dermoids. Dermoids, also known as choristomas, are normal tissue in an abnormal location. They occur infrequently in puppies and are usually noticed at weaning or shortly thereafter because of the development of ocular irritation The pan-endophthalmitis resulted in globe perforation and spread of the infection resulting in an orbital cellulitis. On CT scan, there was marked scleral thickening and inflammation around the globe. The original scans were worrisome for a possible orbital abscess, which requires emergent surgical exploration and intervention
Pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) is a rarely encountered condition in the emergency department (ED) that necessitates a timely diagnosis by the emergency physician. Radiology- or gastroenterology-performed ultrasonography has been a first-line imaging modality for the initial guarding, or peritoneal signs. Scleral icterus and jaundice were. Techniques of Scleral Buckling Jeremy D. Wolfe George A. Williams Scleral buckling is an effective surgical technique for the repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. The scleral indentation achieved with scleral buckling can be accomplished by various techniques and materials, each of which has inherent advantages and disadvantages.

Here is an insight on the possible causes, pictures of how the cyst appear, treatment
Selected abscesses detected by ultrasonography or abdominal CT scanning may be drained percutaneously, whereas perforations, fecal peritonitis, and fistula formation all require a surgical consultation. Abscesses less than 5 cm in diameter can be treated with antibiotics alone, although evaluation by a surgeon should still be sought .

IntroductionScleral buckling (SB) with exogenous material is an effective and important method to reattach the retina. 1 The most common reasons for silicone SB removal include conjunctival or skin extrusion, extraocular infection, intraocular erosion, endophthalmitis, and recurrent. Scleral buckle infections range in clinical appearance from pain, conjunctivitis, and redness to orbital cellulitis or even scleral abscesses with vitritis [1 - 4].Treatment of such infections includes systemic and topical antibiotics at first but often requires explanation of the buckle [1 - 3, 5].Scleral buckle elements may also cause sterile inflammation or orbital pseudocellulitis [3. Cross-sectional imaging has revolutionized the practice of head and neck radiology, as well as the clinical specialty of otolaryngology/head and neck surgery. The complementary roles of CT and MRI offer powerful tools for the diagnosis and management of benign and malignant conditions, provided that the radiologist understands the clinical.

Home / Basic Ophthalmology Review / Conjunctiva / Sclera. Title: Scleritis Author: Trey Winter, 1st Year Medical Student, University of Utah Description: Scleritis is a disorder characterized by the inflammation of the sclera that can radiate to the cornea, episclera, and uveal tract.This inflammation can be destructive, painful, and potentially blinding The sclera merges with the cornea at the limbus anteriorly. It is also composed of collagen, appearing hypointense on MRI and measuring up to 1 mm in thickness. The sclera maintains intraocular pressure and is the insertion site for the extra-ocular muscles .1 In contrast to episcleritis, scleritis is associated with significant ophthalmic and systemic morbidity.2 Patients who are not appropriately diagnosed and treated are at high risk of vision loss owing [

Between 1971 and 1985, 28 patients were treated for a scleral abscess after a scleral buckle procedure. Twenty-six of the patients had the original surgery performed between those years during which a total of 4480 buckling procedures were performed. Therefore, the incidence of scleral abscess after buckling procedures was 0.58% (26/4480). All 28 patients had excessive pain, conjunctival. Granulocytic sarcoma, also known as chloroma or extramedullary myeloblastoma, is a rare solid tumor composed of primitive precursors of the granulocytic series of WBC that include myeloblasts, promyelocytes, and myelocytes [ 1 ]. This tumor was first described by Burns in 1811 Scleral fixation involves straightforward attachment of the redundant conjunctiva to the underlying sclera. For Tenon's reinforcement, an incision is made in the conjunctiva and loose Tenon's capsule is excised. The amniotic membrane is placed over the sclera and conjunctiva is closed over top
Abstract. Intracranial pressure (ICP) is the pressure inside the bony calvarium and can be affected by a variety of processes, such as intracranial masses and edema, obstruction or leakage of cerebrospinal fluid, and obstruction of venous outflow.

Clinical Manual for Oral Medicine and Radiology - 1st ed. (2007).pd A prospective study of consecutive patients with community-acquired K. pneumoniae bacteremia was performed in 12 hospitals.1 The study period was January 1, 1996, to December 31, 1997. Records of patients >16 years of age with positive blood cultures for K. pneumoniae were reviewed, and a 188-item study form was completed. All items on the form were objective criteria, allowing standardization. Posterior scleral flattening and optic nerve head protrusion has lesser sensitivity, but more specificity. The vertical tortuosity of the optic nerve is seldom seen in cases of acute intracranial hypertension, and is believed may be evidence of chronically elevated ICP. References : 1.
