Orbital cavernous hemangioma

Case contributed by Dr Ammar Haouimi


Right proptosis.

Patient Data

Age: 70 years
Gender: Female

There is a well-circumscribed right intra-orbital mass (23 x 19 x 16 mm) of intraconal location in the inferomedial quadrant displacing the optic nerve superiorly and ocular globe anteriorly (proptosis grade I). It elicits an intermediate signal on T1, high signal on T2 and FLAIR with progressive and heterogeneous enhancement on postcontrast sequences. The peripheral pseudocapsule appears of low signal on T2 and GE sequences.

Case Discussion

MRI features are most consistent with an orbital cavernous hemangioma.
