Recurrent orbital squamous cell carcinoma with extension to the middle cranial fossa

Recurrent orbital squamous cell carcinoma with extension to the middle cranial fossa Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the orbit may arise from various sources. SCC of the orbit commonly is the result of metastases or invading tumors of the paranasal sinus. Cysts of various etiologies may also give rise to orbital SCC. Last year, perhaps the first case of SCC arising from multiple cutaneous epidermoid cysts was described in the literature. While perineural spread of cutaneous SCC to the orbit has been thoroughly reported; this is not likely to be the etiology of our case. Squamous cell carcinoma arising de novo in the orbit is also exceedingly rare, and to our knowledge not described in the English-language literature. Below, we describe a unique presentation of possibly de novo squamous cell carcinoma of the orbit that was diagnosed and resected in a multidisciplinary fashion by ophthalmology, neurosurgery, and plastic surgery. Level of Evidence: Level V, diagnostic study. European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals
