She had a complete acquired ankyloblepharon of the right lids, which resulted in the appearance of a right upper lid abscess on computed tomography. Methods Blepharotomy with separation and debridement of the lid margins was performed. Results Cultures were positive only for herpes simplex virus, type II. Conclusions Herpes simplex blepharoconjunctivitis may take many clinical forms. Our patient's severe manifestations led to the clinical and radiologic appearance of preseptal cellulitis with a right upper lid abscess. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
