This book is an atlas of anatomy of the orbit and sellar region. The need for the understanding of the anatomy of the orbit and sellar area has increased with advances in skull base and orbital surgery. The orbit and adjacent areas are being exposed with greater frequency by surgeons approaching lesions that involve the intracranial structures and the orbit. The authors, both neurosurgeons, have written this book to bring all of this periorbital anatomy into perspective.

The illustrations are color photographs, mostly magnified, of cadaver dissections of the orbital and sellar structures. Both dissections and photographs are excellently executed; it must have taken great time and effort for the authors to prepare them; the arteries and veins are all colored latex injected for clarity, and each photograph vividly displays all structures within the field.

This book is divided into 3 parts of 5 chapters each. Part 1 deals individually
