Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A capillary hemangioma in the body of the sphenoid bone produced unilateral optic atrophy in a 13-year-old boy. The typical reticulated appearance of an osseous hemangioma was clearly demonstrated only on direct magnification radiographs. At angiography, patchy filling occurred through vessles arising from the internal carotid and internal maxillary arteries bilaterally. The few other reports of sphernoid hemangiomas are reviewed.
