Capillary haemangioma

This baby was referred because of a right medial canthal swelling and recurrent conjunctivitis. Lacrimal mucocele was diagnosed and the patient placed on waiting list for syringing and probing. Over the next three weeks, the swelling expanded rapidly. A CT scan revealed collection of vasculature in the medial orbital wall. The patient was referred to the neurosurgeon because of progressive enlargement of the lesion threatening to occlude the vision. Surgery was uneventful with complete removal of a encapsulated capillary haemangioma.
