Unusual Presenting Syndrome of Rheumatoid Arthritis Exacerbation Academic Article uri icon


  • We herewith report the rare case of a patient with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis who developed on 2 occasions the clini-cal 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 syn-drome is seldom reported in literature with regards to RA.
