Spheno-orbital meningioma have traditionally been defined as secondary tumors of the orbit originating from the dura of the sphenoid wing bone. Nevertheless, pathologic findings reveal a distinct periorbital component as a defining feature of these lesions. These tumors are characterized by an intraosseous mass growth leading to a significant hyperostosis involving the sphenoid wing, the orbital roof, the lateral orbital wall and the middle fossa cranial base and to a thin, usually soft-tissue growth at the dura. We report here on the extension of the primary tumor into the orbital cavity and present the surgical approach performed.
