ABSTRACT

We herewith report the rare case of a patient with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis who developed on 2 occasions the clinical picture of an isolated unilateral palsy of the inferior oblique muscle—Brown’s syndrome, following pregnancies, each time in a different eye. Although the eye is frequently involved in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the Brown’s syndrome is seldom reported in literature with regards to RA.

KEYWORDS

Brown’s Syndrome; Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis; Rheumatoid Arthritis
