Multiple myeloma with concurrent herpes zoster ophthalmicus: a case reportHyperviscosity syndrome, which typically results from elevated serum levels of monoclonal protein, can present with bleeding, retinopathy, and neurologic symptoms.1 We present a case of hyperviscosity syndrome confounded by herpes zoster reactivation in a patient with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma.

During the encounter, she asked many intelligent questions.

Eye love youValentine’s Day is a time to say “I love you”; however, the term “eye love you” is rarely, if ever, used. In this article, we present rare cases of ocular pathology that have adopted a heart-shaped appearance.

Aphrodite’s atrophy (Fig. 1B) represents a fundus autofluorescence image of geographic atrophy that demonstrated a heart-shaped hypoautofluorescence. Finally, lover’s laser (Fig.
