Although orbital or subperiosteal abscess may originate from a number of sources, paranasal ethmoidal sinus disease is the most common source of infection, particularly in children. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are necessary to prevent severe visual loss and even death. The authors review the five-group classification of orbital abscess and summarize data regarding source, bacteriology, treatment and visual results from 13 series reporting 148 patients. Four new cases are presented in detail. Diagnostic procedures, including laboratory testing, sinus radiography, ultrasound and CT scanning, are discussed and recommendations are given for medical and surgical management.
