Subject Orbital Apex Syndrome, Scedosporium, Aspergillosis, Oculomotor Nerve Palsy
Description "Orbital Apex Syndrome (OAS) consists of any combination of 3rd, 4th or 6th nerve paresis, V1 distribution sensory loss, Horner's syndrome and visual loss due to optic nerve involvement. OAS secondary to mucormycosis in the immunocompromised patients is well described. Unlike Aspergillus, which is the most commonly reported, Scedosporium boydii has not been previously reported as a cause of OAS. Scedosporium boydii is now increasingly recognized as a cause of resistant life-threatening infections in immunocompromised patients."
