We report a case of a 6-year-old child who presented with an orbital mass, in which invasive and non-invasive radiological investigations were used for diagnosis and its subsequent management with angiographic guided intralesional sclerotherapy using 3% sodium tetradeclysulphate. Angiographic guided sclerotherapy prevents accidental injection into major vessel and its extravasation into surrounding tissue. The use of sclerosing agents in the treatment of lymhangiomas of the orbit and other parts of body is known but angiographic guided sclerotherapy in the treatment of a vascular orbital mass is still not well-known.
