Publication Exclusive: Woman presents with bilateral progressive ptosis

October 6, 2015

A 72-year-old Armenian woman was referred to the oculoplastics clinic at the New England Eye Center for evaluation of bilateral ptosis. She noticed gradual onset of drooping eyelids over the course of many years.

The patient’s medical history was significant only for medically well controlled hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. She was pseudophakic and had lattice corneal dystrophy. Of note, two of her children had lattice corneal dystrophy. Her brother and two children also had similar ptosis. She denied trauma, eye rubbing or chronic contact lens wear. She had no other infectious, neoplastic or inflammatory conditions or risk factors.
