안와 혈관 내피종의 1예
Here, we report one case of intra-orbital hemangio-endothelioma. The patient was a Korean male aged 37. The most outstanding complaint was exophthalmos of the left eye. His left eye began to protrude insidiously without pain since 4 years ago. A soft movable mass was palpated on the medial portion of the upper orbital margin and the ocular motility was limited to upward, but ocular deviation was not present. Pathologic diagnosis was intra-orbital hemangio-endothelioma, sclerotic, borderline malignancy. This tumor was well encapsulated and any evidence of involving bone and soft tissue was not found. The size of was 2cm X 2.5cm X 3.5cm. Extirpation was performed by means of superior orbital approach. Tumor mass was removed entirely with finger dissection. The vision was not changed but the cosmetic result was satisfactory.
