Introduction: Lymphangioma is a malformation of the lymphatic system. The classic approach is surgery. We report a case of orbital lymphangioma in a girl who was given OK-432 to avoid surgery and its complications. Discussion: OK-432 is a lyophilized mixture of group A Streptococcus pyogenes which produces a fibrosis limited to the lesion with a high cure rate. The main advantages are the easy intra-lesional application. with no scars and or damage of closed areas. Its main disadvantage is a significant local inflammatory reaction.
