RELATIONSHIP OF SINUSITIS TO OPTIC AND RETROBULBAR NEURITIS: WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO ETIOLOGY AND TREATMENT

Abstract The literature on the relationship of optic and retrobulbar neuritis to sinusitis abounds with good material considered both from the anatomic and from the clinical point of view.

Abstract

Abstract The literature on the relationship of optic and retrobulbar neuritis to sinusitis abounds with good material considered both from the anatomic and from the clinical point of view. Much of this is of such an extremely controversial nature that considerable confusion arises in the minds of the reader as to the real status of the sinuses in disturbances of the optic nerve. The continued recording of cases in which startlingrecovery occurred after operation on the sinuses does not tend to dispel this confusing situation. A real scientific investigation of this subject would seem desirable to place it in some degree on a standardized basis. In the absence of such an investigation much can be learned from an analysis of the anatomic and the clinical work on this subject that has been recorded within the last thirty years. In this discussion no historical review of this subject will be attempted, References 1. Onodi: The Optic Nerve and the Accessory Cavities of the Nose , Ann.
