Acute extraocular muscle restriction in children is a rare condition; orbital myositis is the most common cause. Most neuropathic or myopathic causes of strabismus present as an incomitant deviation. We report a case of orbital cellulitis preceding acute comitant esotropia in a patient showing no evidence of myositis or neurologic pathology.
