Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an immune-mediated inflammatory condition which is a relatively new clinical entity that can have various clinical manifestations. Our understanding of its pathogenesis is rapidly evolving and many theories have been proposed. The determinants of clinical phenotypes in various populations remain unclear. We report a case of IgG4-RD involving the extraocular muscles and aorta in an elderly male who improved with oral prednisolone. We also provided an overview of the current literature on the disease.
