This 60-year-old woman presented with a two-year history of progressive left painless proptosis and hypotropia. CT scan revealed a left frontal mucocele that had expanded into the superior orbit pushing the orbit inferiorly. The mucocele was excised via the coronal flap approach. At the 3-month follow-up the patient showed marked improvement of the proptosis.
