Figure 6: Postoperative computed tomography scan showing complete excision of the tumor, there was no radiological evidence of bone formation in the polycaprolactone scaffold which is known to have osteo-inductive properties

Mentions: Six months after surgery, patient is having complete range of extraoccular movements [Figure 5] and the eyes, facial contour is symmetrical. Six months postoperative computed tomography scan [Figure 6] confirmed complete excision; bone formation was not yet visible in the PCL scaffold which was used for orbital roof reconstruction.
