Dacryocystitis presenting as
post-septal cellulitis: a case report
Dacryocystitis is relatively
common, the majority of patients present with pre-septal cellulitis and not an
orbital abscess due to anatomical barriers. The authors report a case of
dacryocystitis presenting as post-septal cellulitis in a postmenopausal lady
with an underlying malignancy. Following antibiotic therapy and elective
dacryocystorhinostomy the patient is still under follow-up, and has no further
recurrence of symptoms. Orbital abscess in postmenopausal women presenting with
dacryocystitis should be considered, as prompt recognition and early surgical
intervention is required to prevent visual loss.
