An orbital fistula complicating anaerobic frontal sinusitis and osteomyelitis
Documenta Ophthalmologica , Volume 52 - Issue 3-4 p. 409- 414
A patient is described with an orbital fistula complicating frontal sinusitis and osteomyelitis of the frontal bone. The fistula was excised, but a fortnight later an acute exacerbation occurred. From the discharging pus a Staphylococcus aureus was cultured and from mucosa obtained during surgery a microaerophilic Streptococcus. These findings led to the diagnosis: synergistic bacterial inflammation of the frontal sinus, with osteomyelitis and orbital cellulitis.
