A 15-year-old female presented to the emergency department with a swollen left upper eyelid. The patient admitted to picking at a pimple the week prior, and the lid became increasingly swollen over time, with an exponential increase in swelling over the previous 24 hours.
When the patient presented to the emergency department (ED) she was barely able to open her left eye. The eyelid was tender, red and warm to touch.
