Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Summary: A four-month-old male infant underwent sub-Tenon's steroid irrigation for treatment of orbital capilary hemangioma that was causing exposure keratopathy risk to the left eye from progressive proptosis. The temporal inferior sub-Tenon's space was irrigated with a mixture of triamcinolone acetonide (40 mg/ml) and betamethasone sodium phosphate (6 mg/ml) by a blunt-tipped sub-Tenon's cannula. We describe this procedure as irrigation because reflux of the mixture from the incision was permitted. Two weeks after treatment, a marked reduction of proptosis was noted. One month after treatment, the volume of the intraorbital hemangioma resolved significantly in MRI examination. Steroid treatment can be applied local or systemically to treat orbital capillary hemangioma but side effects must be considered carefully. Sub-Tenon's steroid irrigation may be a benefical, effective, pratical and safe application route in the treatment of orbital capillary hemangiomas.
