To evaluate cases of pseudotumours of the orbit and the suitable method for treatrnent. Patients and methods : Eleven cases diagnosed clinically and radiologically and treated by corticosteriords either systemically or by local perilesional injection. Complications and rate of recurrences were monitored and the cases were followed at least one year after last clinical improvements. Results : Were monitored both clinically and radiologically. The local perilesional corticosteroids injections was equally effective systemic route with less cununulative dose of. corticosteriods and hence less systemic complications. Conclusion : The local perilesional corticosteroids therapy is equally effective and has less drawbacks than systemic steroid therapy in cases of pseudotumours of the orbit. C.T. scan or MRI are mandatory for both diagnosis and monitoring therapy of those cases.
