A 35 year-old Caucasian man with Pre-B cell ALL on day 197 post allogenic stem cell transplant and with a chest tube for pneumothorax post VATS was admitted for pain at his chest tube site. Sixteen days into his admission he developed acute onset of blurry vision. The patient first noticed some difficulty reading a wall clock when he woke up in the morning followed by a subsequent worsening of his visual acuity over the next eight hours. By late afternoon he could only detect light. Review of systems was significant only for an intermittent headache over the preceding week.
