Orbital cavernous haemangioma

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

Case Discussion

Cavernous venous malformations of the orbit (a.k.a. cavernous haemangioma)  are the most common vascular lesion of the orbit in adults.

It is important to note that according to newer nomenclature (ISSVA classification of vascular anomalies) these lesions are merely known as slow flow venous malformations. Having said that it is probably helpful in reports to include the word 'cavernous' as this term is ubiquitous in the literature and most familiar to many clinicians.
