• Multiple choroidal osteomas developed in a 10-year-old black girl during recurrent episodes of bilateral orbital inflammatory pseudotumor, mild endophthalmitis, and a transient period of mild secondary hyperparathyroidism. The preponderance of these tumors in girls and women suggests that sex hormones may play a role in their pathogenesis; in our case, inflammation also seems to have been an important factor.
