Ophthalmoplegia Due to Scrub Typhus.
J Neuroophthalmol. 2015 Sep; 35(3):284-6.JN

Abstract

Scrub typhus is an acute febrile infectious disease caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi. The illness is usually characterized by fever, rash, and lymphadenopathy, but severe cases progress to pulmonary and neurological involvement. We report a 69-year-old man who developed ptosis and ophthalmoplegia with a focal nodular lesion in the anterior cavernous sinus detected with magnetic resonance imaging. Found to have scrub typhus, the ptosis and ophthalmoplegia resolved after treatment with doxycycline.
