Bilateral sino-orbital pseudotumour

Can J Ophthalmol. 1988 Jun;23(4):177-80.


The authors present a case of histopathologically proved bilateral idiopathic inflammatory pseudotumour of the orbits with involvement of the paranasal sinuses in a child. Clinically, the bilateral proptosis was manifest at the age of 5 years. While extraorbital manifestations are rare, orbital pseudotumour should be considered in such cases.
