Community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA) infections tend to present as a fluctuant abscess with surrounding cellulitis. The pain associated with the lesion is often out of proportion to its appearance. CA-MRSA is often susceptible to a range of antibiotics (including trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, rifampin, or clindamycin), whereas hospital-associated MRSA is sensitive only to vancomycin and linezolid. However, both types of MRSA may result in acute morbidity and long-term disability. MRSA has also been associated with necrotizing fasciitis, orbital cellulitis, endogenous endophthalmitis, panophthalmitis, and cavernous sinus thrombosis.

The sympathetic innervation to the orbit provides for pupillary dilation, vasoconstriction, smooth muscle function of the eyelids and orbit, and hidrosis. The nerve fibers follow the arterial supply to the pupil, eyelids, and orbit and travel anteriorly in association with the long ciliary nerves. Interruption of this innervation results in the familiar signs of Horner syndrome: ptosis of the upper eyelid, elevation of the lower eyelid, miosis, anhidrosis, and vasodilation. Lacrimal Gland The lacrimal gland is composed of a larger orbital lobe and a smaller palpebral lobe.
