Botox injection is increasingly performed for prevention and elimination of wrinkles. However, it is not without complications. Severe periorbital cellulitis, also known as preseptal cellulitis is among the uncommon complications of Botox injection. Herein, we report a case of preseptal cellulitis after Botox injection, which we believe is the first reported case in the literature.

Abstract


Botox injection is increasingly performed for prevention and elimination of wrinkles. However, it is not without complications. Severe periorbital cellulitis, also known as preseptal cellulitis is among the uncommon complications of Botox injection. Herein, we report a case of preseptal cellulitis after Botox injection, which we believe is the first reported case in the literature.
