Inflammation of the soft tissues anterior to the orbital septum is termed periorbital cellulitis or pre-septal cellulitis and affects the eyelids and adnexa. Periorbital infections are infrequent but potentially sight threatening complications of strabismus surgery, hence need to be diagnosed and treated at the earliest. Here We report a case of 33 years female who presented with persisting preseptal cellulitis following strabismus surgery due to hypersensitivity reaction to vicryl sutures.
