Figure 2: Computed tomography scan shows fullness in the superior portion of orbit due to a well-defined, hypo-dense, peripheral rim-enhancing lesion in relation to left superior rectus muscle closely abutting the globe without any intra-ocular extension. The sagittal reconstruction shows a ring-enhancing lesion in the superior rectus, suggestive of an abscess. Optic nerve was uninvolved. The, antero-posterior, cranio-caudal and transverse dimensions of the abscess were 2.0 cm, 1.2 cm and 1.8 cm respectively
