A 2-year-old male, otherwise healthy, suffered a total of 7 episodes of recurrent right-sided periorbital celluitis (POC) which began at 11 months of age. Five of the 7 episodes of right eye swelling/erythema required hospital admission for intravenous antibiotics. Imaging studies demonstrated a well-defined dehiscence in the lamina papyracea. Endoscopic sinus surgery was performed and an abnormal uncinate process was visualized, fused to the lateral nasal wall and ethmoid bulla. Post-operatively, the patient had no further infections...

This organism was also isolated from a subcutaneous aspirate of the cellulitis lesion in one patient...

Normal function of the extremity has been achieved, and the contour has been preserved. It appears at this time that excision of the subcutaneous tissue is the most important aspect of the surgical management of lymphedema...

Different types of restrictions have been described and the technique of forced duction testing reviewed. Causes of restriction include endocrine eye disease, orbital floor and medical wall fracture, Brown's syndrome, tight lateral rectus syndrome, congenital tight muscles, scarring, muscle contracture, and orbital celluitis or tumors. The importance of recognizing restrictions in the management of these problems has been emphasized...
