07/01/2009 - "Successful surgical treatment for chronic dacryocystitis with recurrent lacrimal sac phlegmon in a female patient with WG has been used as an example to show that endoscopic endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy is the most sparing surgical treatment of dacryocystitis and therefore it is preferable in WG patients and effective at remission during systemic therapy with additional doses of corticosteroids in the pre- and postoperative periods. "
05/01/1997 - "Medical treatment consisted of hospital admission for administration of intravenous antibiotics followed by inpatient surgery, which varied according to the age of the patient and the clinical history: 1) Acute dacryocystitis in neonates was treated surgically by nasolacrimal duct probing and nasal endoscopy for excision of intranasal duct cyst; 2) Acute dacryocystitis with periorbital cellulitis was treated surgically by nasolacrimal duct probing; 3) Acute dacryocystitis due to facial trauma was treated surgically by dacryocystorhinostomy and stent placement; and 4) Acute dacryocystitis complicated by orbital abscess was treated by inferior orbitotomy for orbital abscess drainage, simultaneous nasolacrimal duct probing, and stent placement. "
11/01/2009 - "Reasons cited for performing incision and drainage included a tense, pointing abscess, severe pain not relieved with narcotics, periorbital cellulitis, dacryocystitis refractory to antibiotics alone, and the need to control infection prior to dacryocystorhinostomy. "
