A case report is presented of a healthy 25-year-old man who developed a periorbital necrotising fasciitis after a trivial trauma with a wooden splinter. Necrotising fasciitis of the eyelids occurs rarely. Cryptococcus neoformans is not described as a causative factor of necrotizing fasciitis. Cryptococcus neoformans usually infects patients with immunodeficiencies, diabetes mellitus or steroid therapy. This patient was healthy and developed a periorbital necrotising fasciitis due to Cryptococcus neoformans.
