Treatment
Table 1 shows several labs that were ordered prior to treatment initiation. The patient was placed on oral and topical steroids (prednisone 80 mg and prednisolone acetate 1% 8x/day), oral cyclosporine 125 mg 2x/day, and topical homatropine. In addition, he was placed on oral famotidine 20 mg for gastrointestinal prophylaxis and doxycycline 100 mg 2x/day to cover any possible infection until the labs returned. The patient was initially followed daily in the outpatient setting.
