We describe the case of a 37-year-old woman who experienced a painful thrombosis of an orbital venous malformation. We successfully treated her with surgical decompression via a computer-assisted, endoscopic transethmoidal orbitotomy. Removal of the lamina papyracea and evacuation of the thrombus provided immediate symptomatic relief. Decompression via an endoscopic transethmoidal route provides a more direct and less invasive approach than other techniques.
