Case 11f: A 24-year-old male presented in July with swelling and pain of his right ear and left eye. Six days prior to admission, the patient was stung by a bee on the left hand while vacationing in North Carolina. He subsequently developed swelling and pain of his right ear lobe, followed the next day by swelling around his left eye. The swelling at both sites worsened over several days, and small white dots formed on the right ear lobe. He had trouble seeing that he attributed to the swelling of his eyelids, which was accompanied by an opaque, yellow discharge. He described malaise and subjective fevers, and his symptoms did not respond to cephalexin and prednisone.
