Orbital complications due to ethmoiditis are not uncommon in children. However, they are very rare in infants. A case of orbital abscess due to acute ethmoiditis in a 10 days old boy is reported. Causative microorganisms isolated from the operated specimen were Staphylococcus aureus and aspergillosis. Successful outcome was achieved following antimicrobial therapy, external ethmoidectomy, and surgical drainage of the abscess. The aetiopathogenesis and management of this clinical entity is discussed, with a brief review of the literature.
