INTRODUCTION: Orbital venography,has been established as a research tool in the study of the anatomy of the orbital veins and cavernous sinuses and was introduced by Defeen and Bondet in year 1951 by injecting contrast media into the frontal and supraorbital vein (1).
Orbital venography often disclosed abnormalities in filling of the superior ophthalmic vein or cavernous sinus, but these techniques are difficult and therefore not consistently performed.
