Acquired pediatric Brown syndrome is rarely associated with sinusitis. Children may present with diplopia, elevation deficiency in adduction, and a head tilt or chin-up position. Magnetic resonance imaging can confirm the diagnosis. Antibiotic treatment is often insufficient for resolution. Surgical correction can effectively prevent amblyopia and restore binocular vision.
