Case Study 16 Orbital Myositis
CJ is a 26-year-old man who noted the rapid onset of painful swelling of his right upper and lower eyelids. He was seen at the emergency room and a CT scan was felt to be consistent with mild sinusitis and a preseptal cellulitis, and he was given intravenous (IV) antibiotics and sent home on an oral agent. His symptoms improved over several days, but then similar symptoms occurred in his left eye. He was seen again at the emergency room, and the ophthalmologist on call was asked to come in.
