MUCOID CYST AND DIPLOPIA

02/22/2010

Question:

ON NOV 5 2009 I AWOKE WITH DOUBLE VISION, I AM AGE 49, I HAVE NO SIGNIFICANT HEALTH ISSUES. I WAS TAKING ONE PRESCRIPTION MED AT THE TIME VYVANSE. I WENT TO THE ER FAIRLY QUICKLY WENT TO MRI--NORMAL MRI-- ONLY A MUCOID CYST WAS NOTED IN MY RIGHT MAXILLARY SINUS.(THE RIGHT EYE WAS THE ONE NOT MOVING PROPERLY). I WAS THEN SENT TO MY EYE DOCTOR, MY OPTIC NERVE WAS NORMAL. HE DIAGNOSED MY ISSUE AS PROBABLY A VIRUS IN MY ABDUCENS MUSCLE. THE DIPLOPIA WAS COMPLETELY GONE BY THE NEXT AM 0900. ONLY THING OUT OF THE ORDINARY I HAD DONE WAS USE A NETI POT FOR SINUS I HAD BEEN EXPERIENCING. COULD THE DIPLOPIA BE RELATED TO THE MUCOID CYST? I HAVE HAD NO REOCCURRENCE. I STOPPED THE VYVANSE. Thank You

Answer:

If the mucoid cyst is isolated to the sinus and not pushing up into the orbit, it is not related.
