A case of histologically confirmed Paget disease of the orbit produced a lesion that appeared both clinically and histologically similar to a cholesterol granuloma. This case is unique because of the unusual location of the lesion, its presentation in a patient with no other manifestations of Paget disease, and the histological picture produced by the disease.
