abstract

  • Intraorbital meningiomas are uncommon tumours that usually represent extension from a primary intracranial tumour. Trauma has been proposed by Cushing and Eisenhardt as an etiologic factor in the development of meningioma following head injury. We report a case of primary post-traumatic intraorbital meningioma and discuss its pathogenesis and management.
