A 27-year-old man presented to the emergency department (ED) with a complaint of left eye pain and redness for three days... He had no vision changes or antecedent trauma and denied any constitutional or upper respiratory symptoms... The left upper eyelid showed ecchymosis... Hemorrhagic conjunctivitis is a variant of viral conjunctivitis caused by Coxsackie and enterovirus... It is usually found in tropical regions, where outbreaks are common... Clinically, it is a rapidly progressive, painful conjunctivitis that begins with conjunctival petechiae that coalesce into subconjunctival hemorrhages... Swelling and induration of the eyelids are common... The diagnosis is based on clinical findings, and no specific treatment is available... Symptoms typically resolve within one week... While complications are rare, bacterial superinfection has been reported in the setting of topical steroid use and should therefore be avoided.
