Abstract

In order to obtain a general perspective of the frequency and distribution of orbital disease in North America the authors analyzed 4,563 orbital orbital lesions reported in five large series. Neoplasms (primary and secondary), inflammations, and other lesions comprised approximately 50%, 25%, and 25%, respectively, of the orbital diseases recorded. The most common primary neoplasms were meningioma, cavernous hemangioma, and lymphoma. The most common inflammatory diseases were Graves' disease and idiopathic orbital inflammation. The most common other lesions were dermoid and mucocele.
