Abstract
PURPOSE
To report a case of IgG4-related sclerosing disease involving the eyelid in an idiopathic sclerosing myositis patient. CASE SUMMARY: A 51-year-old woman presented with swelling, redness, and tenderness of the left lower eyelid of 1 month duration had taken an immunosuppressant for idiopathic sclerosing myositis. Eye movements showed limitation all directions but there was no exophthalmos. A palpable mass was noted in the left lower eyelid. The left extraocular muscles were hypertrophied but the lacrimal gland was normal on orbital magnetic resonance imaging. IgG4-related sclerosing disease was confirmed by immunostained biopsy from the left lower eyelid, showing infiltration of IgG4-positive lymphoplasmacytic cells. The patient was given oral steroids and an immunosuppressant and the symptoms did not recur for at least 7 months. CONCLUSIONS: IgG4-related sclerosing disease involving ocular adnexa usually consists of bilateral lacrimal gland involvement. Additionally, the orbital soft tissue involvement without dacryoadenitis is rare. The authors of the present study report a case of IgG4-related sclerosing disease involving the left lower eyelid in an idiopathic sclerosing myositis patient and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of eyelid masses.
