About this book

This book discusses the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of infections of the orbit and periorbital region and is written by experts in the fields of ophthalmology, oculoplastic surgery, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, and radiology. Infections of the orbit can be challenging to diagnose and manage.  With the changing microbiology that has occurred over the years, as well as the introduction of new antibiotics, minimally invasive surgical approaches to the sinuses and orbits, and improved imaging techniques, it is often difficult for practitioners to stay current with the latest testing, medical treatments, and surgical approaches. Furthermore, as more ophthalmologists are joining hospital-based practices or managed care practices, they often feel uncomfortable when asked to manage these types of patients, either independently or in collaboration with other specialists such as ENT and neurosurgery.  Even in many hospitals without ophthalmology coverage, where orbital cellulitis is cared for by otolaryngology and neurosurgery, these specialists also need to be current on the changing trends in managing orbital infections. Orbital Cellulitis and Periorbital Infections fills the need for a single-source reference for practitioners to turn to for comprehensive information regarding the diagnosis and management of orbital cellulitis.

In this book, each chapter is in-depth, yet can also serve as a quick-reference guide. Orbital Cellulitis and Periorbital Infections is an excellent resource for those in training as well as seasoned practitioners who need to be updated on the newest diagnostic and treatment techniques for orbital cellulitis and periorbital infections.
