Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present the case report of a 10-year-old girl who presented to us with a painless swelling involving the left infraorbital region. The swelling was diagnosed to be tubercular in origin with erosion of the zygomatic, maxillary and frontal bones constituting the inferior and lateral walls of the left orbit. The patient responded well to antitubercular chemotherapy. A discussion of the case and a literature review of causes of orbital erosion is presented.
