Authors: Eglantina Bulica, Admir Sinamati, Gentian Vyshka


A 47-year-old Caucasian male came up in the emergency room with severe itch, burning sensation, redness and irritation of the right eye (Figure 1A). Three weeks before he had a swelling in the sub-mandibular region, some five days later the swelling migrated toward the right zygomatic area and thereafter in the right eyebrow.
