Özet

Background: Cavernous hemangioma is the most common benign intraorbital tumor found in adults. Most cavernous hemangiomas are located within the intraconal space. When indicated, complete surgical removal is the only treatment option. Several surgical techniques have been refined over the past decades. We describe our experience over transconjunctival approach in 24 patients with retrobulbar intraconal orbital cavernous hemangiomas.
