Celý článek


Teratomas are tumours deriving from embryonal stem cells. They consist of elements of all three germinal layers. Orbital localization of this type of tumour is very rare. Symptoms develop in the first months of life, rarely later, as cystoid components of the tumour grow in size. Surgical treatment is extremely difficult, eye is spared in individual cases. In our case study, we present baby girl with a diagnosis of primary intraorbital teratoma, who underwent partial resection of the tumour with not just the eye globe spared, but also with visual functions present after the surgery.
