She has also noticed that her right eye appears more “droopy” than she is used to. Otherwise, she has noticed significant weight gain over the past few months. Her past medical history is unremarkable. She does not take any medications. On physical examination, she is afebrile. Her blood pressure is 142/91 mm Hg and heart rate is 77 beats/min. Head exam demonstrates ptosis of the right eye, with asymmetric dilatation and lateral deviation. During eye movements, the right eye fails to move medially. She has faint hirsutism. Prominent fat is noted on her posterior neck. Her chest is clear to auscultation, and she has no abnormal heart sounds. Abdominal exam demonstrates central obesity with striae.
