ABSTRACT
Orbital meningioma is a rare neoplasm that, even when suspected by CT or echographic examination, requires careful histologic study for precise identification. Fine needle aspiration(FNA) biopsy has become the diagnostic technique of choice in recent years for investigating orbital masses. There have been a few previous reports on FNA biopsy of orbital menigioma. We experienced a case of orbital meningioma in a 11-yr-old boy, diagnosed by FNA biopsy. The cytohistologic features of aspirated material(intranuclear inclusions. psammoma bodies, and cells arranged in whorls) made it easy to diagnose a meningioma.
