Abstract

A 54-year-old woman presented with a 1-day history of ptosis of the left upper lid. On examination, the patient exhibited a moderate ptosis, poor levator function, lid lag on down-gaze, and no limitation of ocular motility. A computed tomography (CT) scan with contrast demonstrated enhancement of the levator muscle and levator aponeurosis on the involved side. Treatment consisted of systemic steroid administration and led to complete resolution of the ptosis in 2 weeks. The combined clinical and CT scan findings give a characteristic pattern of an isolated levator myositis.
