  • COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY IN ORBITAL PSEUDOTUMOR (IDIOPATHIC ORBITAL INFLAMMATION) RADIOLOGY ENZMANN, D., Donaldson, S. S., Marshall, W. H., KRISS, J. P. 1976; 120 (3): 597-601

    Abstract:

    CT scans of 9 patients with orbital pseudotumor (bilateral in 6 and unilateral in 3) showed findings distinct from those observed in Graves' ophthalmopathy. In bilateral involvement, they ranged from localized mass lesions to complete obiliteration of normal orbital CT anatomical landmarks; diffuse or multifocal lesions involving the posterior globe and muscle insertions were most typical of the diagnosis. However, findings in unilateral psedotumor may be indistinguishable from orbital mass lesions other than Graves' ophthalmopathy. Serial CT scans were used to show progression of disease and response to treatment.
