A case of extra-abdominal fibromatosis (EF) of the orbit is described in a 35-year-old man presenting with progressive exophthalmos, right ptosis and diplopia. MRI showed an orbital mass of intermediate signal in T1-weighted images (WI) and low signal in T2WI, which enhanced non-homogeneously after contrast injection. The histological diagnosis of EF was made and the lesion was surgically removed. No recurrence occurred in 40 months of follow-up.
