Predisposing causes of preseptal cellulitis includes sinusitis, impetigo, trauma, chronic dacrocystitis, and external hordeolum. Intramuscular abscess in temporalis muscle as a cause of preseptal cellulitis has never been reported in ophthalmic literature. We here report a case of preseptal cellulitis following temporoparietal cellulitis as a result of intramuscular (temporalis) abscess. Surgical removal of the abscess along with parenteral antibiotic therapy was the mainstay of the treatment in such a case.
