Title Neuro-Ophthalmic Imaging-CT Scan
Subject Myositis; Orbital Inflammation
Description Idiopathic orbital pseudotumor is an inflammatory disorder that may effect any part of the ocular anatomy. The site of inflammation determines the nomenclature. For example, involvement of the sclera is referred to as scleritis. And involvement of one or more of the extraocular muscles is referred to as orbital myositis. Patients with orbital myositis usually present with pain, variable proptosis, and ophthalmoplegia. Orbital imaging often reveals enlargement and inflammation of the extraocular muscle(s) and tendon(s). Corticosteroid therapy may result in remission of signs and symptoms.
