Özet

Proptosis, unilateral or bilateral, is a frequent indication for medical evaluation and orbital computed tomography. The most common cause of proptosis in adults and children is inflammatory disorders. Orbital myositis is a subgroup of the orbital pseudotumor syndrome in which one or more of the extraocular muscles are primarily infiltrated by an inflammatory process. Computed tomography and ultrasonography showed enlargement of one or more extraocular muscles in orbital myositis.
