A 9-year-old boy with multiple decayed teeth developed right eye preseptal cellulitis and left subdural empyema due to Streptococcus constellatus . He recovered after neurosurgical evacuation of the empyema and antibiotic treatment with high-dose intravenous ampicillin for three weeks. Poor oral hygiene predisposes to hematogenous and possibly fatal dissemination of rare oral commensals to the subdural space.
