Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 63-year-old man with a slowly enlarging right supra-orbital mass present for 36 years, and was diagnosed with sarcoidosis at the age of 27 years. As mentioned, he received long-glucocorticoids that reduced the mass growth, but it continued to enlarge and slowly covered his visual field. The article also states an excision biopsy performed and after a year of surgery, IgG4-related disease was diagnosed, which was eventually treated.
