ABSTRACT

Periorbital cellulitis, or preseptal cellulitis, is an infection that affects the tissues around the eye, such as the eyelids and nearby areas. It manifests itself with symptoms such as redness, difficulty in eye movement, local heat and pain to the touch. It is more common in children than in adults, with an annual incidence of 10 cases per 100,000 children and 1 case per 100,000 adults. Adults can develop it due to medical conditions that weaken the immune system, such as type 2 diabetes. Periorbital cellulitis can be caused by wounds or infections, with Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus being common infectious agents. In the present case, the etiopathogenesis was multifactorial, due to the previous dental manipulation, as well as the immunosuppression conditioned to the patient's chronic-degenerative disease, all acting in a negative synergy to potentiate the appearance of the clinical picture in the patient.

Keywords: Cellulite, Periorbital, Immunocompromised, Diabetes Mellitus.
