A 45-year-old female patient presented as a walk-in to our clinic with the chief complaint a swollen and painful right eye. She reported dizziness but denied diplopia, fever, and history of any trauma. She stated that her symptoms had been going on for over 3 months and that she had been to multiple doctors with no relief. Her husband reported they went to another practice and she was given “shots in the eye” in February 2016 and November 2015; these provided no relief. The patient was uncertain if it was a steroid or an anti-VEG-f type medication. She denied ever being prescribed oral steroids or antibiotics. Her husband reported going to a local hospital emergency room in April 2016. He stated a CT was done but was normal. He was unsure if the scan was exclusive to the brain or if it also included the orbits.
