Özet

A 13-year-old male patient presented with a complaint of swelling of the left eye starting 3 days ago. Bullous lesion and purulent discharge were present on his left eyelids. Bacillus anthracis was shown in culture and diagnosis was confirmed. Oculocutaneous anthrax is a rare condition, but the diagnosis should be considered in patients with a painless necrotizing ulcer.
