Orbital meningioma

A 40 year-old woman first presented 4 years ago with a right proptosis. At the time, the CT scan showed a space occupying lesion of the retrobulbar space suggestive of orbital meniningioma. However, the patient defaulted treatment and sought traditional medical help. She represented recently with worsening of the proptosis. MRI scan showed enlargment of the lesion involving the intracranial space. She was referred to the neurosurgeon for further consultation.
