Treatment
Intravenous Immunglobulin was administered at a dose of 0.4 g/kg a day for five days and repeated at a single dose once a month for six months. A pilocarpine eyedrop was offered so that she could read with one eye and use the other eye for distance vision. This attempt did not provide a functional improvement. Eyeglasses were prescribed then for distance and near. One year later, she still had blurred vision. Her blood leukocyte and platelet counts were 3200/uL and 151,000/uL, respectively. Her hemoglobin level was 12.2 g/dL. A CT scan of the chest was normal.
