PMID:  18286966     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 9-year-old girl presented with an orbital pseudotumor a few years prior to developing clinical features of systemic lupus erythematosus. Because the few similar cases previously reported were all adults, this patient is the first pediatric case described. The authors also review the relevant literature, especially in the pediatric age group.
