EyeRounds Online Atlas of Ophthalmology

*Dr. Caccamise has very generously shared his images of patients taken while operating during the "eye season" in rural India as well as those from his private practice during the 1960's and 1970's. Many of his images are significant for their historical perspective and for techniques and conditions seen in settings in undeveloped areas.
Cyst: dermoid cyst of orbit
The more common location for a dermoid cyst of the orbit is the upper outer part of the orbit. In the photo, the patient presents with a dermoid cyst in the upper inner part of the orbit. Dermoid cysts normally do not cause exophthalmos because they lie in front of the orbital septum.
