We report a case of a 15-year-old girl presenting with left lacrimal abscess with chronic osteomyelitis of frontal bone, a rare sequelae, that of lacrimal adenitis. If lacrimal adenitis is left untreated, abscess formation can occur and can also lead to osteomyelitis. If lacrimal adenitis/abscess is diagnosed early in the disease process by understanding typical signs, conservative management can accomplish resolution without the complications and need for surgical exploration and the cosmetic implications of facial surgery.

Keywords: Frontal bone, Lacrimal abscess, Osteomyelitis.
