Abstract

Background: Tumours in the superior orbital region can cause hypoglobus. We compare the preand postoperative globe position in two patients with different tumour types.
History and Signs: A29-year-old man and a 58- year-old woman presented with pronounced hypoglobus. In both patients time-scale and importance of the lesion were comparable. Imaging suggested a pleomorphic adenoma in the younger patient, whereas the female patient was radiologically diagnosed with a hemangioma.
Therapy and Outcome: Both radiological diagnoses could be histologically proven. Both lesions were excised in toto. The adenoma patient showed a full recovery of the preoperatively reduced vision. However, the hypoglobus persisted even after ten months. The hemangioma patient had an immediate full recovery of her hypoglobus.
Conclusion: The histological type of a tumor in the superior orbita is of importance regarding the degree of reversibility of the accompanying hypoglobus.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
