Abstract

A case is discussed of a patient with an orbital cellulitis and a post septal abscess secondary to infection from an upper molar tooth. Spread of infection was to the maxillary sinus and thence to the orbit via a defect in the orbital floor. The clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, value of CT scanning, treatment and possible complications are reviewed.
