Objectives: To analyse the diagnostic role of CT scan in evaluation of proptosis
Material and Methods: 50 patients presenting with proptosis were evaluated by CT scan. Role of CT was evaluated in defining the cause of proptosis and the nature and extent of the lesions causing proptosis.
Results: .The most common lesion causing proptosis were tumours (46%) and infections (28%) followed by inflammation (18%), trauma (6%) and vascular (2%). CT scan findings in relation with the age of the patient, the clinical picture and laboratory investigations were able to give a correct diagnosis in 82% patients.
Conclusion: CT scan can be considered as a cost effective, non invasive, reliable diagnostic tool for evaluation of proptosis.
