A 72-year-old man diagnosed with a longstanding right orbital cavernous hemangioma was found with a new dome-shaped mass within the right globe on routine magnetic resonance imaging [Figure 1]. The novel intraocular lesion exhibited a marked opposite signal from the hemangioma, suggesting a distinct entity. On the basis of the imaging study,,, followed by fundus examination and further investigations, the patient was confirmed with a right primary choroidal melanoma co-occurring to an ipsilateral orbital cavernous hemangioma. He was treated with plaque brachytherapy for the melanoma and regularly monitored for the hemangioma.
|Figure 1: Comparative images reveal opposite signals for the simultaneous choroidal melanoma and orbital cavernous hemangioma. On T1-weighted scans, the choroidal melanoma displays a typical hyperintense signal (a), whereas the hemangioma presents isointense to the extraocular muscles (b). On T2 sequences, the melanoma lesion appears hypointense (c), contrasting to the hemangioma's hyperintense signal (d). There is enhancement post-gadolinium at both lesions (e and f)|
