A 69-year-old Japanese male presented with a 3-month history of bilateral ptosis with lacrimal gland bulge. He came from western Japan, an area endemic for human T-lymphotropic virus Type 1 infection. Physical examination and imaging revealed bilaterally enlarged lacrimal glands. Hematologic testing, biopsy with histopathology, and immunohistochemistry were all consistent with adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma.
