Axial SE T1 weighted MR image shows enlargement of right lateral and medial rectus, left medial rectus muscles. There areas of increased signal intensity within bilateral lateral rectus and right medial rectus muscles, representing areas of focal lipomatous degeneration. Note that on the left globe a retinal detachment with subretinal fluid collection is associated.
