Purpose: To report a novel, nonsurgical method of management of orbito-palpebral cyst associated with congenital microphthalmos.
Design: Interventional case series.
Methods: Two patients with orbito-palpebral cyst were included. Case 1 had bilateral orbito-palpebral cyst, whereas case 2 was unilateral. Transcutaneous cyst aspiration in both cases revealed a severely microphthalmic eye with no visual potential. Ethanolamine oleate sclerotherapy was performed immediately after cyst aspiration in both patients.
Results: Complete resolution of the orbito-palpebral cysts was noted within 6 weeks, and the custom prosthesis was well retained.
Conclusions: Ethanolamine oleate sclerotherapy may be an effective minimal intervention treatment option for cosmetic rehabilitation of patients with orbito-palpebral cyst associated with congenital microphthalmos with no visual potential.
