sinusitis, orbital abscess, preceptal cellulitis
Most commonly, the bleeding site is anterior, supplied from Kiesselbach plexus (sphenopalatine, descending palatine, superior labial branches from ECA and anterior and posterior ethmoidal
arteries from the ophthalmic artery).
This modified endoscopic surgery protects the mucosa of the sinuses from allergen exposure during inspiration without compromising the clearance of ethmoidal
In this article, we describe the case of an immunocompromised patient who had fulminant ethmoidal
sinusitis with orbital involvement that was caused by Aspergillus flavus.
According to Stammberger, they usually originate much more frequently in fissures and narrow spaces of the ethmoid than from ethmoidal
The right maxillary sinus, both sphenoids, and the left ethmoidal
air cells were clear.
Both patients had a displaced septum, and the hemangioma also had invaded the ethmoidal
sinus and the orbit.
Most involved the frontal sinus, although the maxillary sinus, ethmoidal
cells, and sphenoidal sinus can also be affected.
Once the patient is stabilized and has been transported to the tertiary care center, several treatment approaches can be used, such as transnasal endoscopic anterior ethmoidal
artery ligation, (6) clipping of the bleeding artery, (5) cauterization, (4) or endoscopic ablation and angiographic embolization, (2,3) all of which have been reported to be successful.
Endoscopic ligation of anterior ethmoidal
artery in treatment of epistaxis.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the head was performed to determine the cause of his recurrent meningitis; 2 giant pseudomeningoceles were detected, 1 in the left postorbital space and 1 in the right ethmoidal
Maxillary and ethmoidal
exenteration failed to halt the infection and success was achieved after 40 HBO treatments at 2.
Our studies displayed a destructive mass arising from the right nasal ethmoidal
area, extending into the right inferior turbinate and nasa l septum, with bone destruction in the ethmoids and nasal bone on the right.
The case presented is, to our knowledge, the first primary ethmoidal
