Periorbital necrotizing fasciitis: a complication of a dacryocystorhinostomy



Journal Francais d'Ophtalmologie 34(4): 258.e1-5

We report a rare case of periorbital necrotizing fasciitis following a dacryocystorhinostomy procedure. We describe the common features of this rare infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissues and discuss the different management strategies as well as the controversial role of anti-inflammatory medication in treating this condition.
