Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of orbital sarcoidosis with extraocular muscle and orbital fat involvement that did not respond to oral corticosteroid treatment, but was successfully treated with oral hydroxychloroquine. There were no side effects or disease recurrence. To our knowledge, anti-malarial therapy for isolated orbital sarcoidosis has not been reported in the literature.
