Hemangiomas are the most common benign orbital tumors in both children and adults. They usually occur in a nasal superior location. Capillary hemangiomas are more common in children (they swell when the child screams), and cavernous hemangiomas are more common in adults. Treatment is only indicated where the tumor threatens to occlude the visual axis with resulting amblyopia or where there is a risk of compressive optic neuropathy. Capillary hemangiomas in children may be treated with cortisone or low-dose radiation therapy.
