Notes

1. Periorbital cellulitis is confined to the space anterior to the septum (i.e., eyelids).

2. The infection in orbital cellulitis is posterior to the septum and is characterized by proptosis, ophthalmoplegia, and visual loss.

3. All cases of orbital cellulitis and all but the mildest cases of periorbital cellulitis should be admitted.

4. In the absence of trauma, most cases of orbital and periorbital cellulitis are due to extension of sinus infections.
