Title:
Conjunctival Mass as an Initial Presentation of Iatrogenic Orbital Encephalocele
Authors:
Rautenbach, Pierre; Thyagaraja, Dhanurjaya Vignesh; Irvine, Fiona
Abstract:
A 46-year-old woman presented with a symptomatic conjunctival mass of the right eye, appearing 2 months after undergoing right frontal craniotomy to excise a meningioma. MRI of the brain revealed a new iatrogenic encephalocele extending into the right temporal orbit. Our opinion is that the conjunctival mass resulted directly from this encephalocele. To date this has been conservatively managed, and we believe this to be the first report of an iatrogenic encephalocele presenting in this manner.
