Canaliculitis is an infection of the canaliculus which forms part of the tear drainage pathway. This area can get infected at times with certain organisms, leading to swelling, mild pain, discharge. This condition is easy to miss clinically as it tends to be a slow indolent infection. Common organisms causing this are certain species of Actinomyces and Staphylococci among others.

Dr Anuradha Ayyar was called to a multispecialty hospital to see this 32 year old pregnant woman with severe uncontrolled diabetes, for an infection in the eyelid which had now spread to the right orbit leading to protrusion of her eye and significant decrease in vision. She was not responding well to intravenous antibiotics even after a week. She could only perceive light held very close to her eye. She was on Insulin for controlling her blood sugar levels.
CT scan revealed collection of pus in the superior orbit, for which Dr Ayyar performed an emergency orbitotomy and drainage.
With strict monitoring of the patient’s blood sugar levels, improved diet, and intravenous antibiotics and wound care during the hospital stay, she showed a dramatic improvement. Her vision on discharge was 6/36 in the affected eye. On 2 weeks follow up, she surprised the doctors by reading upto 6/9!Contact Us
