Abstract

A retrobulbar abscess/cellulitis occurred in a Yorkshire Terrier dog.The clinical signs were exophthalmos, prolapsed nictitating membrane and purulent ocular discharge.Ultrasonography showed a marked soft tissue swelling of the retrobulbar tissues as well as echogenic parallel lines between the globe and the medial orbital rim.Surgical exploration of the orbit was performed and no foreign body was found.The pterygopalatine fossa was incised and therapeutic retrobulbar drainage attempted.A drain was placed to encourage ventral drainage of the abscess.Anaerobic cultures revealed heavy growth of gram negative rods(prevotella bivia and prevotella buccae were isolated).Recovery was successful but subsequent treatment for keratoconjunctivitis sicca was necessary.A full recovery of tear production occurred after several weeks.
