Orbital Pseudotumor

A 41-year-old man was seen as part of the ultra-sound-training course given by a visiting volunteer team to the university hospital in Jakarta, Indonesia. He gave a history of “a big right eye with some aching for several weeks.” Examination showed 8 mm of proptosis of that eye with 3+ conjunctival injection and chemosis. The vision was measured at 20/70 OD and 20/25 OS. The left eye appeared normal on clinical examination. A plain film x-ray of the orbits was read as normal. He was diagnosed with an orbital tumor and was in the process of being referred to another city for orbital biopsy.
