Mucoceles are benign expansile cystic lesions containing mucin or mucopus. They grow gradually and exert pressure on surrounding structures, causing bony remodelling. Bony remodelling around the orbit can lead to pressure on the orbital structures, vessels or nerves causing visual impairment. We describe a case of infected frontoethmoidal and sphenoidal mucoceles causing opthalmological symptoms including visual loss.
