Some Thoughts I found only one | Comment 1 of 11
One solution is (m,n) = (1, 3)

85^1 - 3^4 = 85 - 81 = 4
I have not proved it is unique, but when I tested in the program below up to 1000, I found only the one answer.

big = 1000

for m in range(1,big):
    for n in range(1,big):
        if  85**m - n**4 == 4:
            print(m,n)
