Question:

Which of the following statements are true regarding capillary haemangiomas?
1. Occur only in males.
2. It is a well-defined encapsulated lesion.
3. Lesions usually present during the second decade of life.
4. Are the most common orbital vascular tumours in infancy.
5. Are usually intra-conal.





Answer:

The correct answer for the question "Which of the following statements are true regarding capillary haemangiomas?" is:

4. Are the most common orbital vascular tumours in infancy.



Explanation
1. [There is a female predilection with a male-to-female ratio of 2:3.]  

2. [Since haemangiomas lack a capsule they appear as lobulated, irregularly marginated masses on CT.  Intra-lesional calcifications are rare.]

3. [Lesions may either present at birth or appear shortly after, and rapidly increase in size during the first year of life.]

4. [Capillary hemangioma is the most common orbital vascular tumour of infancy, and has no known familial or hereditary association.]

5. [Most are extra-conal in location but they tend to cross tissue planes and may even extend intra-cranially through the optic canal or the superior orbital fissure.]

Abstract
Orbital pathology often presents a diagnostic challenge to the reporting radiologist. The aetiology is protean, and clinical input is therefore often necessary to narrow the differential diagnosis. With this manuscript, we provide a pictorial review of adult ocular and orbital pathology.
