Pediatric Orbital Disease

  • Mithra O. Gonzalez
  • Vikram D. Durairaj


The pediatric orbit is an enlarging bony cave wherein the globe and its accompanying soft tissue are found. Not only does the pediatric orbit differ in size from the adult version, but the bones are more pliable, the adjacent sinuses are only just beginning to pneumatize, and there is an increased craniofacial ratio.
