This is an interesting and rare case report of right intraorbital cavernous haemangioma near optic nerve of a
12 years boy who was hospitalized for right sided uniocular moderate axial proptosis and headache without
any impairment of vision. Computed Tomographic (CT) scan showed fusiform enlargement of around right
optic nerve just behind the eye ball. The mass was removed by right fronto-orbito-zygomatotomy incision and
diagnosed post-operatively as intraorbital cavernous haemangioma (CHM).

Key words: Intraorbital cavernous haemangioma.
