Orbital inflammatory disease is a rarely reported complication of COVID-19 infection. We report a unique case of bilateral orbital myositis in a 12-year-old boy who tested positive for COVID-19 without typical systemic symptoms. Workup for other infectious and inflammatory etiologies was negative. After failing both oral and intravenous antibiotics, the patient was started on high-dose systemic steroids, with significant clinical improvement after 24 hours, thus confirming the inflammatory etiology of his presentation.
