A 69 y/o female presented with a 5-day history of fever and left eyelid swelling. This was accompanied by partial gray-tan discoloration of the involved eyelid of over 3 days' duration. On examination, there was severe left eyelid swelling, which made the rest of the ocular examination difficult. The patient also had fever at 39.2°C. What are your comments?

Orbital cellulitis. It  is an inflammation of eye tissues behind the orbital septum. It is most commonly caused by an acute spread of infection into the eye socket from either the adjacent sinuses or through the blood. It may also occur after trauma. When it affects the rear of the eye, it is known as retro-orbital cellulitis. The main cause of orbital cellulitis is sinusitis, which is an infection of the sinuses. ... Without treatment, sinus infections can spread to the fat and muscle surrounding the eye socket. Bacteria such as the Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococci species are the most common cause of orbital cellulitis
