Abstract

This article describes the case of a 10-year-old girl with a rare presentation of extra- and intra-conical cavernous hemangioma in children. After undergoing complete surgical excision, the exophthalmos completely regressed, and no recurrence was observed during the two-year follow-up period. The treatment options discussed included intratumoral corticosteroid injection, oral corticosteroid therapy, and surgical excision.

Keywords: Hemangioma, children, cavernous
