Abstract

A 69-year-old woman with orbital cellulitis secondary to odontogenic Streptococcus constellatus was transferred to the authors' institution for surgical management of infection refractory to intravenous antibiotics. She underwent debridement with preservation of the globe, recovering full motility. Visual recovery was limited by optic nerve ischemia. This case supports the importance of urgent surgical drainage in necrotizing orbital infections secondary to odontogenic Streptococcus constellatus.
