Abstract

Inflammatory pseudotumour (IPT) is an uncommon disease with undefined pathogenesis. It is often characterized by local aggressiveness with compressive and displacing effects on surrounding structures. It may appear in different regions of the body, rarely involving perineural structures unilaterally. We present a case of a bilateral IPT around trigeminal branches in a patient with a long-term history of periorbital swelling and proptosis. © 2012 The British Institute of Radiology.
