Misdiagnosed Case Of Aspergillosis
A young male patient presented with total loss of vision in left eye since he had alcoholic liver cirrhosis and normal MRI, a diagnosis of Toxic amblyopia was made and the patient was given steroids. He later developed proptosis and retrobulbar mass in left orbit, biopsy ruled out malignancy but by the time repeat biopsies and radiological investigations proved it to be aspergillosis, the patient died. An early and accurate diagnosis followed by required management could have saved his life.
