Distinguishing features of preseptal and orbital cellulitis.

Author information

University of Wolverhampton.


The differential diagnosis between orbital cellulitis and preseptal cellulitis is important as is the need to differentiate between an allergic response or infectious cellulitis of the eye. This article will examine the case of a 15-month-old boy who was brought to an emergency department with an oedematous right eye. The research about diagnosis and treatment will be evaluated and orbital cellulitis will be explored in more detail including the symptoms and complications.
