Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The presence of brain tissue in the orbit is a rare finding, whether it occurs isolated, in continuity with intracranial contents, or within a tumor. In this paper, the authors report a rare case of ectopic brain in the orbit, presenting as a conjunctival mass, in a 15-day-old female child. The clinical and histological features of the case are presented, together with a review of the literature.
