Orbital teratomas are rare, usually benign congenital
In this case, cyanoacrylate glue embolisation of the ophthalmic artery, using an umbilical catheter, followed by orbital xenteration under general anaesthesia was performed at 7 hours of life. Surgery was achieved in less than 2 hours with no bleeding, especially after sections of oculomotor muscles and optic nerve. Dilated skin tissue was long enough to heal the whole orbital cavity, and postoperative care has been uneventful after a follow-up of two years.
