I am indebted to Dr. Charles Montgomery for the privilege of reporting this case.
The patient, M. M., aged 13, has a negative family history. She presents a tumor over the right orbit which is said to have appeared a short time after birth as a growth the size of a hazel nut, whereas it now extends midway to the occiput. The tumor is pale in color, of a doughy consistency, and is composed of dilated terminal branches of the ophthalmic artery. There is absence of hair over the tumor. The eye projects forward, downward and outward. The conjunctiva of the upper lid and of the inner and outer angles of the eye is thickened by distended blood vessels. The cheeks show dilated capillaries near the nose. Dilated vessels are not seen elsewhere. There does not appear to be any weakness in the walls of the arteries, as was shown
