The article describes the case of a 46-year-old woman referred for persistent diplopia after severe migraine headaches in 2011. She had reportedly experienced episodes of migraine headaches followed by ptosis of the left upper eyelid and binocular diplopia since childhood. The diplopia is said to have persisted after an episode three years ago. It notes that her ocular history was significant for patching of the left eye as a child and a presumptive diagnosis of ophthalmoplegic migraines.
