Abstract

Orbital subperiosteal abscess caused by chronic rhinosinusitis is less common in adults than in children. The patient whom we treated suffered from right periorbital pain, periorbital swelling and diplopia. He underwent functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) after 2 weeks of antibiotics treatment. After operation, the patient recovered well and shows no symptom of visual disturbance and periorbital pain.
