A 56-year-old lifelong Manhattan (New York City, New York) resident presented with 4 months of bifrontal recumbent headaches, 3 weeks of morning emesis, and 2 weeks of photophobia and vertigo. For her initial headaches, she had unremarkable findings on a noncontrast computed tomographic scan of the brain. Four months before presentation, she had a 6-week hospitalization for myocardial infarction complicated by ventricular tachycardia and a 36-kg weight loss; her weight remained at 81 kg thereafter. She had no cough, constitutional symptoms, identifiable human immunodeficiency virus risk factors, or tuberculosis exposures.
