Excerpt from The Practitioner: A Medical Journal; July-December, 1906
Case I. Influenza. - Abscess at inner canthus of left eye; incision and evacuation of fins; symptoms of sup/57i ration in left frontal, ethmoidal and maxillary sinuses. Complete cure without further operation.
A female, aged 18, suffering from an abscess pointing at the inner canthus of the left eye, near the root of the nose, consulted Mr. H. Willoughby Lyle at the Royal Eye Hospital on June 2, 1905. A month previously she had had inﬂuenza and pain round the left eye. The eye swelled up and closed in a single night. Under chloroform the abscess was Opened and a. Large quantity of pus evacuated. It appeared to come from a deep situation in the inner wall of the orbit. A probe was passed into the abscess cavity, and bare bone was felt. (for these notes I am indebted to Mr. Willoughby Lyle, who kindly sent the patient on to my clinic in King's College Hospital.)
