Frontoethmoidal osteoma with orbital extension. A case report.Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol. 2016 Jul; 91(7):349-52.AS
A case is presented of a right frontoethmoidal osteoma with intraorbital invasion in a 43-year-old male, who was seen in the clinic with a proptosis, retro-orbital pain, peri-palpebral inflammation, and binocular diplopia due to muscular route limitation. Open surgery was performed using a subcranial approach, with removal of several fragments of osteoma. Histological analysis confirmed the diagnosis.
Osteomas are benign bone-forming tumours with slow growth. They are usually asymptomatic until mass effect complications occur in the brain or in the orbit, or locally, generating mucoceles due to sinus drainage obstruction.
