A 15-year-old boy presented with a 5-month history of fullness around the medial canthus of his right eye that had recently enlarged. Physical examination revealed a painless, hard, smooth swelling affecting the medial part of the orbit, causing 5 mm of proptosis and lateral displacement of the globe. The nasal cavity appeared normal. The patient had no symptoms other than blurred vision. The corrected visual acuities appeared normal at 6/5 in each eye, with no diploplia and no abnormalities on funduscopy.
