Abstract

 Purpose: To present a case of ORBITAL ABSCESS secondary to mandibular odontogenic infection.Case report: A 30 year old man presented with ocular pain and exophthalmos of the left eye following a dental infection since a few days ago. A localized abscess was detected in the left orbital CT but the PARANASAL SINUSes were clear. Involvement of the left third mandibular molar was evident on facial X-ray. Simultaneous surgical drainage of the orbital and dental lesions was performed following failure of medical treatment.Consequently the patient’s clinical picture resolved completely.Conclusion: Mandibular odontogenic infection is a rare cause of orbital cellulitis and early surgical intervention has great value in treatment of this condition.
