Abstract

Because advanced tumors of the skull base produce a mass lesion in the orbit, and because primary tumors of the orbit can spread to involve the cranial base, surgical approaches to the orbit form an integral part of skull base surgery. Orbital involvement is manifested clinically by the gradual development of proptosis, visual deterioration, and disturbances of ocular motility.
