Retrobulbar amphotericin B in combination with local debridement may be considered an alternative to exenteration for invasive aspergillosis secondary to reversible immunosuppression. To the authors' knowledge, orbital compartment syndrome secondary to retrobulbar amphotericin B administration has not previously been reported. Patients should be counseled on the risk of severe local inflammation due to amphotericin B. More research is needed to establish the most appropriate dosing, frequency, and duration of retrobulbar amphotericin B injections in the treatment of life-threatening Aspergillus infections.
