Haemangiopericytoma of the eyelid and orbit: report of 2 cases
AbstractHaemangiopericytoma is a rare tumour of the pericytes. This is a report of two adult Nigerians presenting with large orbital masses confirmed at histology to be haemangiopericytoma of the eyelid and orbit respectively. Massive proptosis in both patients produced a clinical diagnostic dilemma, which was only resolved by histopathological studies.
