Abstract A 39-year-old man had bilateral proptosis and blurred vision for I week. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed signs of bilateral orbital pseudotumor, a suprasellar mass, and pulmonary infiltration. Biopsies from retrobulbar and bronchial sites showed similar inflammatory tissue. His disease resolved with pulsed corticosteroid therapy.
