Abstract

The Molteno seton implant has recently been used in pediatric patients with advanced childhood glaucoma, who would otherwise have been treated with cyclodestructive surgery. We report a case of Molteno implant (first stage) associated with orbital cellulitis in a 1-year-old child. The presence of the implant was initially unrecognized until, in the course of evaluation for orbital cellulitis, computerized tomography of the orbit suggested a foreign body. We believe this is the first report of a complication associated with the first stage of this procedure.
