The article presents a case of a 26-year-old hyperbaric oxygen therapy technician with a history of chronic paranasal sinusitis. She was admitted to the emergency department due to ecchymosis and painful swelling over her right eyelid, three days after working while she had a cold. She felt discomfort under her right eye while accompanying patients into the hyperbaric chamber, as part of her job. Nevertheless, she recovered eventually with supportive treatment.
