Idiopathic orbital myositis is a disease with unknown etiology, but it is thought to be an autoimmune disease, which is rarely seen among children. In most cases, corticosteroids provide a rapid and dramatic improvement. In this case report, we present an 11-year-old girl who admitted to our clinic with headache and orbital pain. Her neurologic examination revealed restriction of the outside glance on the right eye and restriction of the down glance on the left eye. Finally, she was diagnosed as idiopathic orbital myositis and improved with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory treatment.
