Orbital cavernous haemangiomas are most frequent intra-conal, intra-orbital primary tumor in adults. They represent 4% of all orbit tumors and 9-13% of all intracranial cavernous haemangiomas. Forty-two-year-old female came with complaints of protrusion of right eye (RE) since 3 months associated with diminution of vision, headache, and eye ache. Absolute proptometry was 28 mm OD and 20 mm OS. 2 mm of the inferior scleral show was seen in RE. Axial computed tomography (CT) showed unilaterally, moderately enhancing, homogeneous, smooth-contoured mass. The patient underwent right lateral orbitotomy with mass excision under general anesthesia. The histopathological evaluation proved it to be a cavernous haemangioma. We report a case of intra-orbital, intra-conal cavernous hemangioma occurring in a 42-year-old female presenting with proptosis. The tumor was diagnosed on CT and was removed using lateral orbitotomy approach. Patient had significant improvement in symptoms with the mild deterioration of vision.
