A yellowish subconjunctival lesion in an infant—congenital orbital fat herniation
- 424 Downloads
A very rare case of a congenital orbital fat herniation is demonstrated. Clinically, the child presented a progressive, small yellowish and mobile mass on the temporal orbital wall of her right eye. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a fat isointensive structure in T1-weighing without contrast enhancement. The possible aetiology of the herniation could be a congenital weakness of the Tenon's capsule or the conjunctival fornix.
