A 49-year-old otherwise healthy male presented with an odontogenic abscess and mild left facial swelling. CT imaging revealed gaseous hypodensities within the inferior orbital fissure and pterygopalatine fossa in addition to infection of the left masseter and temporalis muscle. Despite dental drainage, this rapidly progressed to orbital cellulitis with temporalis muscles abscess leading to compartment syndrome and globe tenting. He had an excellent outcome after canthotomy and cantholysis, urgent endoscopic and transconjunctival orbital decompression, temporalis muscle abscess drainage, and intravenous antibiotics. This case describes the use of bony orbital decompression for orbital compartment syndrome and globe tenting from odontogenic orbital cellulitis. In addition, this case radiographically demonstrates a transinferior orbital fissure passageway of an odontogenic abscess in the orbit.
