This 32 year-old woman from a remote area was
treated for nasopharyngeal carcinoma 2 years ago. She presented with a
rapidly expanding lesion in the left orbit. The lesion was hard to touch and
had bony attachment. The MRI scans revealed a large extraconal left orbital
mass from the eyelid that extended into the medial extraconal space and into
the parasellar space. The tumour was most likely to arise from recurrent
nasopharyngeal carcinoma. She was referred to the oncologist for radio- and
Left orbital mass.
