Author information

Ocular Plastics Unit, Department of Ophthalmology, Prince of Wales Hospital, and The University of New South Wales, Australia.


A 55-year-old Caucasian woman presented with an orbital cavernous haemangioma superior to the optic nerve in the orbital apex. Preoperative imaging demonstrated a mass involving the superomedial and superolateral quadrants of the posterior orbit. A stereotactic fronto-orbital approach was performed by the neurosurgical team, and cryoextraction of the lesion was accomplished by the ocular plastic surgical team.
