Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome (POGS) is a rare condition characterized by unilateral granulomatous conjunctivitis and ipsilateral regional lymphadenopathy. Among all infectious agents, cat scratch disease (CSD), which is caused by Bartonella henselae, remains the commonest etiology agent of POGS. We present a case report of a 13-year-old boy who came to a tertiary center in Malaysia with left granulomatous conjunctivitis and subsequent necrotizing lesions involving left upper eyelid, left paranasal region, and left preauricular lymph nodes. With a poor initial treatment response and confusing investigation results, this interesting case describes the diagnostic dilemma in differentiating the etiological agents of POGS.
