    Vaccinations for shingles are recommended for most adults over 60 years of age and are typically well tolerated. The present case describes acute onset of unilateral ptosis, proptosis, and orbital myositis developing within days after administration of shingles vaccination. The episode resolved to baseline after 1 week of treatment with steroids. To the authors' knowledge, this is first reported case of orbital inflammation following shingles vaccination. Given the temporal relationship and rapid response to treatment, this may represent an autoimmune reaction to the shingles vaccine.
