This image depicted a right anterior-oblique view of a patient’s face, which exhibited symptoms of an illness known as erysipelas, a dermatologic condition, which involves the inoculation of the skin and subcutaneous tissue with streptococcal bacteria causing edema and bright red erythema of the affected areas, as was the case here. Note the purulent discharge from the right eye, and the serosanguineous discharge from the severely swollen right cheek. See PHIL 24911, for another view of this patient’s condition, and PHIL 24912, for the appearance of this patient's condition after she had received an undisclosed therapy.
