This pt came to me for cough. However she asked that she cannot close her R eye ( figure). She said she has this problem since 5th month of pregnancy & she was going to a hospital managed by a nurse. She was told as she was pregnant, treatment cannot be done at present but only after delivery. She delivered 2 months back but started treatment only yesterday. what is the illness? DD treatment?
