A 41-year-old woman presented with an asymptomatic left infraorbital mass that had continuously grown over a 4-year period. A magnetic resonance image showed a retroseptal mass without involvement of the neurovasculature or intrinsic musculature of the eye. Excisional biopsy showed a well-circumscribed, benign vascular proliferation, consistent with a cavernous hemangioma or cavernous venous malformation.
