Peptoniphilus indolicus is not usually seen in the eye but is a commensal of the human vagina and gut. However, with COVID-19, eye infections and other unusual complications are possible with unsuspected bacteria. The patient presented here spontaneously drained this bacteria through the skin, an uncommon occurrence with orbital abscesses.
