Abstract: Surgical treatment of spheno-orbital en plaque meningiomas is safe and effective: a low morbidity rate was recorded and visual function improved in about two-thirds of patients. Reconstruction of the orbital walls with titanium mesh provides for good functional and cosmetic results. In case of superior orbital fissure and cavernous sinus invasion, the combined surgical-radiosurgical treatment allows to minimise surgical morbidity and to achieve tumour control.
