Recurrent Fevers and Neuro-ophthalmic Disorders in a Mathematical Genius.

Neuroophthalmology 2021 1;45(2):131-138. Epub 2021 Mar 1.

Department of Internal Medicine, Wright State University School of Medicine, Dayton, Ohio, USA.

Horner's syndrome coexisting with an ipsilateral fourth cranial nerve palsy is a rare occurrence and likely localises to pathology in the cavernous sinus. One such case may have occurred in the 18 century affecting the renowned mathematician Leonhard Euler. A review of his biographies, eulogies, and three finely detailed facial portraits suggest that these two neuro-ophthalmic conditions, along with visual loss and a decades-long intermittent febrile illness, may have been the result of an orbital cellulitis and septic cavernous sinus thrombosis, from an underlying chronic brucellosis infection.
