Blunt trauma to the orbital rim is a frequent cause of both orbital fractures and damage to the surrounding facial bones and soft tissues. Many surgical specialties, including ophthalmologists, otolaryngologists, maxillofacial specialists, neurosurgeons, and plastic surgeons, evaluate and treat orbital fractures Restoration of orbital volume after internal orbital fractures can prevent enophthalmos. A variety of high strength materials/allografts are commonly used that boast low postoperative complication rates, including titanium mesh with and without porous polyethylene coating. Some controversy exists over the use of uncoated titanium mesh in the orbit. Newer products contoured to the three dimensional orbital anatomy aim to improve reestablishment of the complex orbital shape [1-4]. There is no previous bibliography available to support a plate is a source of meningitis. We report a case of bacterial meningitis and pneumo-orbit, on a background of previous orbital fracture repair with titanium plate, and our management technique.
