A middle-aged Indian female patient presented with unilateral chronic painless progressive giant orbital tumor of 15 years duration causing complete anterior globe luxation. Roentgenograms revealed enlarged orbital cavity with soft-tissue mass shadow. Computed tomography showed a giant orbital cyst filling the entire orbit displacing the orbital contents outside with intact, but thinned orbital walls. The lesion was solitary and well-encapsulated. Surgical excision using combined anterior and lateral orbitotomy approach completely removed the subperiosteal cyst and associated cosmetic blemish with recovery of extra-ocular movements. Histology confirmed the diagnosis of Schwannoma with massive cystic degeneration and areas of calcification.
