Lymphatic malformations are usually managed by observation, although significant cosmetic abnormalities, compressive optic neuropathy, risk of amblyopia, exposure keratopathy, or elevated intraocular pressure mandate treatment. We report the case of a 10-year-old boy with a deep orbital macrocystic lymphatic malformation that was successfully treated with intralesional injection of sodium tetradecyl sulphate, a sclerozing agent mainly used in the treatment of small varicose veins in the lower extremity.
