  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 10-year-old female child developed acute orbital cellulitis associated with frontal sinusitis. After initial treatment with massive dosis of systemic antibiotics which proved futile, Haemophilus influ-enzae was isolated from aspirated material from the orbit. The strain proved to be non-typable as to serotype, biotype 1, and fi-lactamase productive. Sytemic use of Gentamycin was critical in curing the condition.
