Orbital lymphaticovenous malformations (LVM) are congenital vascular lesions that are typically infiltrative in nature. There have been reports of orbital LVMs extending intracranially through orbital fissures, but there have been no reports of intradural extension that we are aware of. We present the case of an otherwise healthy 25-year-old female with an orbital LVM extending intradurally. Imaging revealed an intraorbital lesion extending through a bony defect in the medial orbital roof to the orbitofrontal cortex. A modified orbitozygomatic approach was used to obliterate this lesion. A durotomy was created to examine the intradural extension of the lesion, which appeared as a lobulated red vascular structure emanating from the dura along the roof of the orbit. This was gradually and comprehensively bipolar coagulated and subsequently obliterated. Neurosurgical and ophthalmological collaboration was used in the surgical management of this case. In summary, we report the first case of an orbital LVM extending intradurally, and provide pre and post-operative imaging as well as images captured through the intraoperative microscope. Through this case we highlight the importance of an interdisciplinary approach when managing orbital LVMs, as both ophthalmological and neurosurgical expertise were critical in the success of the surgery.
