Abstract: Orbital metastasis is an unusual occurrence and it is rarely the leading manifestation of systemic malignancy. Breast carcinoma accounts for the majority of metastatic lesions to the eye. We report the case of a 56-yearold woman presenting with ophthalmic symptoms and no history of pre-existing malignancy. A left intraorbital mass was observed on magnetic resonance imaging examination and further investigations revealed a left breast carcinoma as the primary tumor. When confronted with similar findings, ophthalmologists should include orbital metastasis in the differential diagnosis. A thorough clinical assessment is also mandatory.
