Figure 1: Right nonaxial proptosis with periorbital edema, erythema, and nasal conjunctival chemosis

Mentions: The child's mother became concerned about a progressive swelling of the right eye over a period of weeks. There was no relevant previous medical or birth history and the mother tested negative for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Examination revealed gross, nonaxial proptosis associated with periorbital edema, erythema, and nasal conjunctival chemosis [Figure 1]. Ocular motility was restricted horizontally and in elevation. On fundoscopy, there was pale disc swelling on the right, with tortuous retinal vessels.
