Abstract: Purposes Orbital myositis is described as exquisitely sensitive to therapy with systemic corticosteroids. However, it may turn into a recurrent or chronic disease, requiring repeated courses or maintenance of corticotherapy that often is complicated with serious side effects. The authors conducted this study to evaluate their experience and the current status in the literature as to treatment of orbital myositis with corticosteroids and corticosteroid-sparing alternatives.
