ABSTRACT
A 32-year-old woman, three months pregnant, reported with the complaint of protrusion of the right eye for six months. She gave history of rapid protrusion of eyeball for the last two months along with the history of double vision for the last one month. Computer tomography (CT) scan revealed a well-defined mass lesion in the intraconal space of the right orbit which was excised through a lateral orbitotomy approach. Histological examination and immunohistochemistry revealed a solitary fibrous tumor, which showed a rapid progression in pregnancy.

Figure 0001: (a) CT scan of the right orbit (axial view) showed an intraconal mass lesion of the right orbit (b) clinical view of the patient (preoperative)

Mentions: Computer tomography (CT) scan revealed a well-defined mass lesion in the intraconal space of the right orbit, which measured 37 mm × 25 mm × 22 mm, with globe wall flattening in the posterolateral aspect [Fig. 1a, 1b]. The optic nerve was displaced superomedially. CT scan impression was suggestive of cavernous hemangioma (right orbit). Considering her hyperglycemic status (fasting blood sugar 148 mg/dl, post prandial blood sugar 270 mg/dl) and amenorrhea, opinion from obstetrician and endocrinologist was sought.
