Abstract

A RARE CASE is presented of a nonruptured aneurysm of the intraorbital ophthalmic artery in which successful resection of the aneurysm resulted in improvement of preoperative progressive signs caused by the mass ef-fect of the aneurysm. The surgical management of this rare entity is dis-cussed with special attention given to the collateral circulation of the ophthalmic artery from the external carotid artery.
