Preseptal cellulitis - External and Internal Eye
The main complication of preseptal cellulitis is potentially vision-threatening orbital cellulitis. Fortunately, the protective fibrous orbital septum prevents extension in many cases, but the clinician should be aware of and look for signs that indicate orbital involvement (refer to the Diagnostic Pearls section). Preseptal cellulitis should be treated promptly to prevent progression to orbital cellulitis.
