HO is a 42-year-old woman who presented with the complaint that her left eye appeared larger than her right. She was not exactly certain when the problem started but felt it was probably over several months. Examination found vision in both eyes of 20/20 and 5 mm of left proptosis on Hertel exophthalmometry. Fundus examination was normal and no choroidal folds were noted. CT scanning revealed a rounded isodense lesion behind the globe that mildly enhanced after the injection of a contrast agent. The differential diagnosis included a cavernous hemangioma.
