Orbital Vascular Lesions

  • Mark J. Kupersmith


Vascular lesions of the orbit are infrequent. Though the entities discussed in this chapter are to be considered in the differential diagnosis when a patient presents with the appropriate signs and symptoms, nonvascular lesions such as dysthyroid orbitopathy, orbital pseudotumor, metastatic neoplasm, lymphoma, and mucocele are much more commonly found. Many of the clinical presentations of the vascular lesions develop because of an alteration in the orbital hemodynamics (see Chap. 1) as well as the local mass effect.
