Abstract

The asymmetry of the mean normal osseous orbital volumes in the population is only within the margin of statistical error. At the same time the individual asymmetry of osseous orbital volumes in health is as much as 3.0 cm3; that of osseous orbital apical volumes is not greater than 1.0 cm3. The linear and volume characteristics of the osseous orbit and its apex are useful in estimating the degree of clinical symptoms. These should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of true and false exophthalmos and these can also play a crucial role in choosing surgical tactics.
