ABSTRACT
A wide spectrum of pediatric orbital disorders can occur in the pediatric age group. Cross-sectional imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis and management of these patients. We reviewed our imaging record and collected representative cases of pediatric orbital pathology. The purpose of this pictorial essay is to illustrate the imaging features of various orbital lesions encountered in children.
