Orbital tumors are uncommon in everyday practice, and the differential diagnosis is very diverse. This module concentrates on the history, clinical examination findings, and imaging characteristics of orbital tumors, and then illustrates the pertinent points by presenting the more important orbital tumors. Successful management of orbital tumors requires sound clinical judgment, appropriate radiology, and pathologists with experience in the diagnosis of orbital disease. Many orbital tumors require multispecialty management for successful treatment.
Upon completion of this Focal Points module, you should be able to:
- Formulate a differential diagnosis of the most common orbital tumors encountered in their clinical practice
- Initiate the work-up of these tumors and communicate effectively with the definitive care provider
- Coordinate the multidisciplinary care and treatment options for the most frequently occurring orbital tumors
