This monograph deals with rhinologic complications of the orbit. The inflammatory processes of the orbit and lids may be due to an osteitis, periostitis, abscess, or a venous thrombosis. Retrobulbar neuritis is included in this category. The pathology, symptomatology, diagnosis and therapy are discussed in detail. The second section deals with mucoceles and benign tumors of the nose and sinuses, which extend to the orbit and produce their individual symptoms. The third section is concerned with malignant tumors of the nose and sinuses.
Although the subject of this monograph is limited to a very narrow area, it is presented with great clarity and amplified by numerous case reports and illustrations. The otolaryngologist and ophthalmologist can benefit greatly by reading this monograph.
