Abstract

To show the clinical management of orbital pseudotumor in childhood we present a 4 year old boy with unilateral bulbus dislocation, pseudoptosis and bilateral sinusitis maxillaris and ethmoidalis. This rare disorder imitates clinically and sometimes histologically a neoplasm. A biopsy can usually be avoided by using CT-, or NMR-scans and additional blood tests. Etiology remains unclear, a possible correlation to sinusitis is discussed. Prognosis is good and normally there is a good response to corticosteroids. So far, there is no evidence of relapse in our patient.
