Abstract

A 67 years old diabetic male patient suffering from cellulitis of the right lower extremity presented with painful severe loss of vision, proptosis and periorbital swelling in both eyes. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of brain and orbits showed orbital soft tissue swelling with thickened extraocular muscles in both eyes. Patient with this sequence of presentation was diagnosed as bilateral orbital cellulitis. He was treated with intravenous antibiotics following which his vision recovered in both eyes and other signs of orbital cellulitis also resolved.

Keywords: Cellulitis, Orbital cellulitis, Proptosis.
