Abstract

Lymphatic-venous malformations (LVMs) are development defects that result in abnormal connections between the lymphatic and venous systems. The authors describe a 7-weeks-old female infant who presented with a right orbital LVM extending to the ipsilateral cheek and subconjunctiva of the right eye, intracranial developmental venous anomalies in the right cerebellum, and a significant right eye intraocular retinal vascular malformation. Since orbital LVM is usually diagnosed in infancy or childhood, pediatric ophthalmologists should actively look for intraocular vascular malformations as such findings can poorly affect a patient's vision.
