Özet

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.
