History
A 51-year-old woman with a history of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in remission and no past ocular history presented emergently at the University of Kansas Hospital with binocular diplopia and right-sided ptosis of 3 days’ duration. The patient also complained of fatigue. She originally attributed her symptoms to allergies, stating that she had also recently experienced mild right-sided eye discharge and sinus pressure. Past medical history was significant for mild hypertension and AML with myelodysplasia-related features that was treated about 6 months prior with haploidentical peripheral stem-cell transplantation. The patient was a former smoker (40 pack-years) and had a family history of glaucoma (sister). She had recently finished a regimen of fluconazole for prophylaxis after stem-cell transplantation and was also taking acyclovir, letermovir, dapsone, and tacrolimus.
