Abstract:Two cases of orbital cellulitis in children are described. Treatment with penicillin proved unsuccessful. Subsequent treatment with lincomycin parenterally produced rapid improvement and complete recovery from the infection.
The authors suggest that lincomycin should be considered in treatment of orbital cellulitis in cases where penicillin has no effect.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
