ABSTRACT
We report a case of a 48-year-old man who developed metastatic angiosarcoma in her left orbit. A 48-year-old man was first sent to us for a check up of proptosis of the left eye. A left orbital tumor was recognized on orbital computed tomography scans. The open biopsy showed angiosarcoma. Chest X-ray films and thoracic computed tomography showed an abnormal mass in the left inferior lung field. Angiosarcoma was confirmed by transbronchial lung biopsy. In summary, we believed that the orbital tumour was an initial symptom of the metastasis ensuing from the lung angiosarcoma.

Figure 1: Left orbital proptosis with chemosis.

Mentions: A 48-year-old man smoking for 30 years was due to a pack a day presented a one-month history of exophthalmia, chemosis (Fig. 1) and diplopia. An ophthalmic examination shows a visual acuity as 20/20 in OD, and in 15/20 OS check pupils is normal and exophthalmometry shows 6 mm proptosis in OS. Motility examination on admission demonstrated a left oculomotor limitation in all direction, accompanied with pain and a ledger left ptosis. The fundus examination was normal. A neurological examination on admission demonstrated a left oculomotor palsy, accompanied with pain.
