  • Look Inside

Two cases of orbital cyst were studied clinically and histopathologically.

The first patient was a 22-year-old woman who had microphthalmos by birth. She complained of swelling of both lower eyelids. Cystic tumors, well demarcated and about 2 cm in diameter, were obse-rved in both orbits. Histopathological examination revealed these tumors to be benign cysts lined by a single cuboidal epithelium.

The other patient was a 72-year-old woman who complained of leftexop hthalmos. Computed tomo-graphy and orbital venography revealed a retro-bulbar mass located within the cone of muscles. Kroenlein's operation was performed.
