Background: Sino-orbital aspergillosis is typically treated with surgical debridement and intravenous amphotericin B. Some authors have advocated intraorbital irrigation or injection of amphotericin B in specific cases.
Methods: An immunocompetent patient with recurrent sino-orbital aspergillosis is presented. After failing two attempts at traditional therapeutic modalities, treatment with oral itraconazole was initiated.
Results: The patient has had resolution of her sino-orbital disease without recurrence at 10 months of follow-up.
Conclusion: In immunocompetent patients with orbital aspergillosis, itraconazole should be considered as a treatment option in patients who have recurrent or recalcitrant disease, or in those who cannot tolerate amphotericin B.
