Abstract

We report a case of 75-year-old elderly male who presented with diminution and distortion of vision, swelling, pain and upward and nasal deviation of eyes. Computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), fundus photography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) were performed. A multilocular intraconal cystic mass lesion causing chorioretinal folds was seen. A presumptive diagnosis of orbital lymphangioma with chorioretinal folds was made and was confirmed by histopathology. This case is being reported because of its unusual presentation in an elderly patient (chorioretinal folds with macular involvement).

Keywords: Orbital lymphangioma; Chorioretinal folds; Visual distortion; Macular involvement
