We report a rare case of a 3-year-old female child with a severe degree of hypotropia and esotropia of the left eye secondary to presumed myositis from unknown etiology treated with systemic steroids. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the orbit revealed a bulky left inferior rectus muscle. With a working diagnosis of inferior rectus contracture, and presumed dense amblyopia in the left eye, a free tenotomy of the left inferior rectus muscle along with recession of the left medial rectus restored orthotropia from the locked-down position.
