  • [Title] Orbital cavernous hemangioma of childhood.
  • Ocular and orbital tumors, both benign and malignant, occur relatively frequently in infants and children.
  • Benign masses are much more common than malignant in the orbital region.
  • However, childhood tumors show great variability and it is difficult to differentiate benign from malignant lesions.
  • Cavernous hemangioma is the most common benign neoplasm of the orbit in adults.
  • We report a case of orbital cavernous hemangioma in a four-year-old girl presenting as unilateral painless proptosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Ethmoid osteoma with frontal and orbital extension: endoscopic removal and reconstruction.
  • Endoscopy provides a safe and effective way of treating craniofacial bony benign lesions.
  • This approach permits not only complete removal of the tumour, but also reconstruction of the bony boundaries as necessary.
  • Osteoma is a rare, osteogenic tumour that usually grows slowly and asymptomatically.
  • It is the most frequent benign neoplasm of the nose and paranasal sinuses.
  • Orbital extension is a rare event that can give rise to ocular signs and symptoms; in such a case treatment is mandatory, although debate persists regarding the optimal approach.
  • We report the case of a bulky fronto-ethmo-orbital osteoma that was treated using an endoscopic trans-nasal approach.
  • The medial wall of the orbit was repaired by means of an implant of porous polyethylene endoscopically positioned using an "underlay" technique.
  • A CT scan performed 6 months postoperatively showed good ventilation of the sinonasal cavity and effective reconstruction of the medial orbital wall.

7. Coutinho-Camillo CM, Brentani MM, Nagai MA: Genetic alterations in juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas. Head Neck; 2008 Mar;30(3):390-400

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) is a rare benign neoplasm of the nasopharynx that accounts for 0.5% of all head and neck tumors.
  • Although histologically benign in appearance, JNAs are locally aggressive and destructive, spreading from the nasal cavity to the nasopharynx, paranasal sinuses, and orbit skull base with intracranial extension.
  • The gender selectivity of JNA and the relatively young age at diagnosis suggest hormone-dependent development.
  • Hormonal disorders have been reported in patients with JNA, and androgen and estrogen receptors have been identified in tumor tissue; however, a hormonal influence on JNA is controversial.
  • Understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in JNA might improve prevention, prognosis, and treatment of this tumor.

  • Cavernous hemangioma is the most frequent benign tumor of the orbit.
  • The clinical presentation is that of a slowly progressive intra-orbital mass with variable degree of exophthalmos.
  • CT typically demonstrates the presence of a well defined oval or rounded shaped mass but MRI provides superior evaluation of the orbit.
  • The tumor is intra-conal in 80% of cases and usually shows T1W hypo-isointensity, T2W hyperintensity and heterogeneous contrast enhancement that becomes more homogeneous on delayed imaging (5 minutes).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the orbit: a case series.
  • PURPOSE: Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) occurs rarely in the orbit.
  • We present four such cases, representing one of the largest case series reported to date of this rare orbital tumor.
  • All four patients underwent CT scan to confirm the diagnosis of an orbital mass, which was then excised.
  • One of these cases demonstrated residual tumor on follow-up CT scan, which remained unchanged at one-year follow-up.
  • No evidence of residual tumor was found in the other three cases, despite one having malignant pathology.
  • CONCLUSION: SFT is a rare and generally benign tumor of the orbit.
  • Immunohistochemical testing with CD34 is necessary to confirm the diagnosis.
  • Although en bloc tumor resection is the definitive treatment, residual tumor may remain stable for some time.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Multiple cavernous hemangiomas of the orbit: separate occurrence within a 24-year period.
  • BACKGROUND: Cavernous hemangioma is a frequent and the most common, primary, benign tumor of the orbit in adults.
  • Multiple orbital cavernous hemangiomas without signs of hemangiomatosis are rare.
  • Tumor recurrence is supposed to develop from vasculature that is present already in response to a proliferate stimulus.
  • CASE REPORT: A 39-year-old female with painless proptosis of the right orbit was found to have four orbital tumors.
  • Six years later, another, the fifth one cavernous hemangioma was totally excised from the same orbit.
  • Nine years after the first operation, reorbitotomy was performed because of positive radiological and clinical signs of de novo tumor in the orbit.
  • CONCLUSION: This case show the possibility of cavernous hemangioma recurrence after a previously totally excised tumor, separated more than two decades.
  • A very long follow-up of the patients operated for these benign tumor lesions is recommended.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] MDM2-positive atypical lipomatous neoplasm/well-differentiated liposarcoma versus spindle cell lipoma of the orbit.
  • PURPOSE: To distinguish, in a 36-year-old man, an atypical lipomatous neoplasm/well-differentiated liposarcoma from a spindle cell lipoma in a recurrent orbital tumor.
  • RESULTS: MDM2 gene amplification was discovered in the CD34 tumor cells.
  • These findings established the diagnosis of a well-differentiated liposarcoma with lipoma-like and spindle cell features and ruled out a spindle cell lipoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Well-differentiated liposarcoma is a slow growing, infiltrative, and nonmetastasizing neoplasm that is microscopically and diagnostically challenging.
  • It can be reliably separated from a benign spindle cell or an atypical lipoma by using the markers MDM2 and Ki-67.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the orbit: morphological, cytogenetic and molecular features.
  • Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT), a benign neoplasm arising in mesenchymal structures, was initially described in the pleura but subsequently has also been documented in other locations.
  • It is uncommon in the orbit, where it closely resembles other benign spindle-shaped mesenchymal tumors of this area such as schwannoma, meningioma or hemangiopericytoma.
  • We present a case of orbital SFT in a 34-year-old woman.
  • Measurement of DNA content revealed a DNA index of 1, indicating a diploid peak in 95% of the tumor cells.
  • No p14(ARF), p15(INK4B) and p16(INK4A) deletions or hypermethylation were observed in this benign tumor.
  • Following surgical resection and radiotherapy, the patient showed no tumor relapse after one year of follow-up.

  • [Title] Aggressive orbital optic nerve meningioma with benign microscopic features: a case report.
  • Here we report the case of a 20-year-old female with an aggressive orbital meningioma referred to the Ophthalmology Department of the Farabi Hospital in Tehran.
  • The patient had a history of orbital meningioma from 10 years ago and several surgical resections due to tumor recurrence during these 10 years.
  • On admission, the patient had a large orbital mass and severe proptosis.
  • MRI images revealed a large left orbital mass with optic nerve involvement and extension to the left maxillary sinus, pterygoid fossa and the dura in the floor of the anterior fossa.
  • Fine-needle aspiration cytology of the mass confirmed tumor recurrence.
  • The patient first received radiotherapy due to the inoperable mass, and the tumor was resected 1.5 month later.
  • The interesting aspect of this case was the aggressive behavior of the tumor with intraocular invasion, despite its benign histopathological features, which led to wide exenteration of the eye together with resection of the upper and lower lids.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECT: The hyperostosis frequently associated with sphenoid wing meningiomas is actual invasion of bone by the tumor.
  • The intracranial portion of the tumor is usually thin with en plaque spread, and the tumor tends to invade the orbit through the superior orbital fissure.
  • Seventeen of the patients had the distinguishing characteristics of hyperostotic sphenoid wing meningiomas-extensive bone invasion, en plaque dural involvement, and a minimal intracranial mass with minimal orbital involvement.
  • Revision of the orbital reconstruction was required because of postoperative enophthalmos (two cases) or restricted postoperative ocular movement (one case).
  • These lesions are generally histologically benign.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: This retrospective, non-comparative, interventional case series included 16 patients (6 women and 10 men) with lesions located wholly within the orbit.
  • Thirteen cases involved tumors (31% benign and 69% malignant), two cases presented with chronic orbital inflammation and one patient had intraorbital tissue growth secondary to Graves disease.
  • The main outcome measures analyzed were change in tumor/neoplasm size, pain, visual field preservation and visual acuity, which were followed for up to 15 months.
  • RESULTS: Twelve patients had a postoperative MRI, which revealed either a decrease or stabilization of tumor size.
  • In the five lymphoma cases there was complete disappearance of the tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Staged CyberKnife radiosurgery is an effective option for the treatment of intraorbital lesions that controls tumor size, relieves pain, and preserves vision.

  • CONCLUSIONS: Many other benign and malignant optic nerve and sheath tumors have imaging features similar to those seen in JPA and ONSM.
  • Therefore, it is important to establish histopathologic diagnosis before embarking on treatment.
  • Furthermore, tissue diagnosis is required prior to EBRT in many institutions because of concerns about medicolegal liability.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A diagnosis was obtained in 69 of these patients, including 37 (54%) with solitary metastases and 32 (46%) with lesions unrelated to the lung primary.
  • Histopathologic examinations of these 32 lesions revealed a second clinically unsuspected malignancy or a recurrence of a previous diagnosed carcinoma in six patients (19%) and a benign tumor or inflammatory lesion in 26 patients (81%).
  • The six malignancies consisted of carcinoma of the breast in two patients, and carcinoma of the orbit, esophagus, prostate, and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in one patient each.
  • Benign tumors and inflammatory lesions included eight colon adenomas, four Warthin's tumors, one granuloma of the lower jaw, one adenoma of the thyroid gland, one compensatory muscle activity due to vocal chord palsy, two occurrences of arthritis, three occurrences of reflux esophagitis, two occurrences of pancreatitis, two occurrences of diverticulitis, one hemorrhoidal inflammation, and one rib fracture.
  • CONCLUSION: Solitary extrapulmonary FDG accumulations in patients with newly diagnosed lung cancer should be analyzed critically for correct staging and optimal therapy, given that up to half of the lesions may represent unrelated malignancies or benign disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Subconjunctival herniated orbital fat: A benign adipocytic lesion that may mimic pleomorphic lipoma and atypical lipomatous tumor.
  • Prolapse of subconjunctival intraconal orbital fat is a rare cause of an intraorbital mass lesion.
  • Over the past several years, we have seen a number of cases in which this prolapsed fat was confused pathologically with a neoplasm of adipocytic lineage, specifically pleomorphic lipoma and atypical lipomatous neoplasm (well-differentiated liposarcoma).
  • We report the clinical, histopathologic, and immunohistochemical findings in 21 specimens from 17 patients, all of whom presented with prolapsed intraconal orbital fat.
  • Subconjunctival prolapsed orbital fat was localized in the superotemporal quadrant or lateral canthus around the rectus muscle below the lacrimal gland.
  • "Control" sections of normal orbital fat showed occasional Lochkern cells but lacked floret cells.
  • We conclude that subconjunctival herniated orbital fat commonly contains multinucleated floretlike giant cells, fibrous septae, and Lochkern cells, features that may result in diagnostic confusion with pleomorphic lipoma and atypical lipomatous neoplasms.
  • Importantly, specific diagnostic features, such as aggregates of bland spindled cells associated with wiry collagen, as seen in pleomorphic lipoma, and enlarged hyperchromatic cells within fibrous septae, as in atypical lipomatous neoplasms, are entirely absent in herniated orbital fat.
  • Multinucleated floret cells present in prolapsed orbital fat likely represent a reactive phenomenon, as they are not present in normal orbital fat.

  • Intraoperatively, strands of mucosa extending from the frontal sinus around the periphery of the mass in the right orbit were seen.
  • The mass was excised and the orbital roof repaired.
  • The osteoma facilitated entrance of sinus air in the orbit, resulting in recurrent orbital emphysema with nose blowing.

  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical manifestations of lacrimal gland tumor involving the anterior and middle cranial fossae and the effect of transcranial-orbital approach in treatment of such tumor.
  • METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted on the clinical data of 23 cases lacrimal gland tumor involving the anterior and middle cranial fossae confirmed by radiological examination, including 11 cases of adenoid cystic carcinoma, 6 cases of pleomorphic adenocarcinoma (malignant mixed tumor), 2 cases of adenocarcinoma, 1 case of squamous cell carcinoma, 1 case of ductal carcinoma, 1 case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma, and 1 case of benign mixed tumor, 15 males and 8 females, aged 42.5 (2 - 76), with a case history of 43 months (2 months to 27 years), with the chief complaints of progressive proptosis, disgenesia of the eye ball, and orbit pain, all undergoing transcranial-orbital operation from August 1998 to February. 2006.
  • Recurrence of tumor occurred in 4 cases, and 1 case died from distant metastasis of adenocarcinoma.
  • Adequate orbital apex decompression and exposure of the tumor can result from suitable transcranial-orbital approach.
  • However, complete surgical excision is difficult, and the tumor has a tendency to recur post-operatively.

  • "Orbital tumors (OT) are neoplasms of the bony orbit and contents except for the eyeball."
  • Examination must be careful: measurement, direction of proptosis, impairment of ocular motility, compressive optic neuropathy, strabismus, etc.
  • Benign tumors such as dermoid cysts or hemangiomas grow slowly, whereas rapid growth suggests a malignant tumor.
  • When a metastatic tumor is suspected, abdominal palpation and ultrasonography must be performed.
  • Ultrasonography leaves the posterior third of the orbit inaccessible to exploration.
  • The depth to which it can penetrate the orbit is limited (20mm).
  • Most of the time, standard x-rays, CT, and MR imaging allow for an adequate assessment and usually provide a diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Orbital epithelial tumors in dogs are rare and most frequently malignant.
  • Distinguishing their origin from the lacrimal or zygomatic gland is often challenging and is based mostly on tumor location.
  • A case of adenoma involving the orbit in a 13-year-old, female, standard Schnauzer is reported.
  • Histologically, the neoplasm was characterized by nests and cords of epithelial cells mostly forming small glandular structures.
  • The origin of the tumor from the zygomatic gland was determined by histochemical characteristics (alcian blue pH 1 positive staining) of a small remnant of normal gland included within the tumor capsule.
  • The benign nature of our finding was confirmed by follow-up information: 2 years after complete surgical removal of the mass no tumor recurrence or metastases was recorded.

  • COMMENTS: Giant cell angiofibroma is a benign spindle cell neoplasm characterized by multinucleated giant cells and pseudovascular spaces with a propensity to occur in the anterior soft tissues of the orbit of middle-aged adults.
  • It is part of a wide differential diagnosis of tumours that can be separated by various histologic and immunohistochemical features, which are discussed in the report.
  • It is important to consider it preoperatively because the vascular nature of this tumour may create problems with hemostasis during excision.

  • Endonasal surgery is currently extending its application beyond inflammatory sinonasal lesions to successfully treat both benign and malignant neoplasms.
  • CT provides excellent details about the thin bony sinonasal walls separating the ethmoid from the anterior skull base and the orbit.
  • Benign and malignant neoplasms are the "domain" of MRI because the tumor is more easily separated from adjacent structures, the periosteal linings (periorbita, dura mater) and perineural spread can be accurately shown.
  • Whereas MRI precisely assess pre-treatment tumor extent, early submucosal local recurrences are difficult to demonstrate because of post-treatment changes of the anatomy and of the signal of treated tissues.

  • [Title] Osteoblastoma of the orbit. A case report and review of the literature.
  • We describe a case of benign orbital tumour involving the frontal sinus and ethmoidal cells.
  • CT findings were typical of "bone tumour of the orbit", histological analysis yielded a diagnosis of benign osteoblastoma.
  • The orbit is rarely involved by bone tumours, but all bone tumours may theoretically involve the orbit, often making it difficult to establish the right differential diagnosis by imaging.
  • Even though many literature reports suggest CT is the landmark in bone tumour diagnosis, we think it should always be accompanied by MRI.
  • MRI is known to overestimate local staging, but its contribution to differential diagnosis among various tumours may be decisive.

  • [Title] Review of lateral orbital wall ossifying fibroma.
  • Significant histological overlap exists between fibro-osseous lesions and diagnosis is made on a clinicopathological basis.
  • Ossifying fibroma is a benign fibro-osseous neoplasm of the jaw and craniofacial complex that has generated a degree of controversy regarding diagnosis and classification, especially with respect to the psammomatoid variant.
  • Orbital lesions mainly arise from the paranasal sinuses affecting the medial or inferior orbital wall.
  • Lateral orbital wall ossifying fibroma is, therefore, a rare condition with only a single previous case report.
  • We present a second case of lateral orbital wall ossifying fibroma and a review of the associated literature.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) is a benign tumor of the nasopharynx, and for its treatment, many surgical approaches have been recommended.
  • However, selecting the appropriate one for the tumor in an advanced stage is still controversial.
  • Involvement of the orbit, middle cranial fossa and base of the pterygoid by the primary JNA results in a higher incident of recurrent tumor.
  • Among different surgical techniques, the lowest recurrence rate is seen either in the transpalatal approach when the tumor is limited to the nasopharynx with extension to the nasal cavity or paranasal sinuses or with the Lefort I approach when skull base invasion is present.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Maxillary ameloblastoma is a rare odontogenic neoplasm that is histologically benign and originates from epithelial cells present in bone tissue.
  • If excised through conservative surgery, this tumour has a high relapse rate and is locally aggressive.
  • The risk, in particularly extensive forms, that the ameloblastoma will invade extra-maxillary structures such as the orbit, the pterygomaxillary fossa, the infratemporal fossa and the base of the skull, means that surgical treatment is difficult if it is to be oncologically radical while respecting function and aesthetics.

  • Clinical examination alone is inadequate for the diagnosis.
  • Radiological examination, like computed tomography (CT) scans, can help in the diagnosis; however, the diagnosis can only be confirmed by histopathological examination (HPE) after excision biopsy.
  • Here, the authors report four cases of orbital schwannoma with cystic degeneration that presented with proptosis and decreased vision.
  • The histopathological examination was diagnostic for orbital schwannoma with cystic degeneration.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Clinicopathologic characteristics of hemangiopericytoma/solitary fibrous tumor with giant cells].
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the pathological characteristics, diagnosis and differential diagnoses of hemangiopericytoma-solitary fibrous tumor with giant cells.
  • METHODS: Pathological characteristics of seven cases of orbital and extraorbital hemangiopericytoma-solitary fibrous tumors with giant cells were evaluated by HE and immunohistochemistry (EnVision method).
  • RESULTS: Two cases were located in the orbit, one of which had recurred.
  • Seven patients underwent tumor excision and were well and without tumor recurrence upon the clinical follow-up.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hemangiopericytoma-solitary fibrous tumor with giant cells is an intermediate soft tissue tumor.
  • It typically involves the orbital or extraorbital regions.
  • Histologically, the tumor should be distinguished from giant cell fibroblastoma, pleomorphic hyalinzing angiectatic tumor of soft part and angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma.
