Abstract

The authors report 2 patients with idiopathic sclerosing inflammation of the orbit who presented with periorbital paresthesia in the trigeminal nerve distribution. The diagnosis in both cases was confirmed with biopsy and both patients responded to corticosteroid treatment. Although periorbital paresthesia is usually a sign of malignancy, these cases illustrate that it may also occur in patients with sclerosing orbital inflammation.
