The class and dose of corticosteroids, surgical drainage, treatment course and clinical outcomes were reviewed. RESULTS: All patients received corticosteroids showed satisfactory results during 4.5 months of average follow up. Only one patient have been decreased visual acuity. Complications were minimal including mild hypokalemia, increased hepatic enzyme including aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase. CONCLUSIONS: The use of corticosteroids may be beneficial in the treatment of orbital cellulitis with subperiosteal abscess.
