In children, idiopathic orbital inflammations are extremely rare and difficult to diagnose. The present study describes one case of idiopathic orbital inflammation in a one-year-old child that led to important oculomotor impairment. The differential diagnosis between idiopathic orbital inflammation and orbital cellulitis is discussed and the literature on the idiopathic orbital inflammation in childhood is reviewed.
