Abstract

Introduction

Transnasal endoscopic approach is well established in the management of subperiosteal abscess but retro-orbital abscess is commonly treated by external surgical approach. There are only two articles published on endoscopic drainage of retro-orbital abscess. We present our experience in the management of retro-orbital abscesses by transnasal endoscopic surgery.

Methods

Retrospective case charts review. Three cases with retro-orbital abscess were drained with endoscopic approach in last 5 years.

Conclusion

Role of transnasal endoscopic surgery in superior-lateral located intraorbital abscesses could not be evaluated but presented case series will further open the doors for transnasal endoscopic surgery.
