A case study of a young male with right orbital cellulitis secondary to sinusitis is presented. Ocular signs are described, including decreased visual acuity, ptosis, proptosis, pain, and restriction of ocular movements. The patient had a number of clinical signs, including a decompensating intermittent exotropia and the continued presence of bilateral ptosis following resolution of the orbital cellulitis. It was concluded that the patient likely had previously unknown pre-existing conditions, which meant that he will continue to require ophthalmic and orthoptic management beyond the resolution of the orbital cellulitis.
