To report a rare case of an orbital dermoid cyst combined with unilateral keratoconus. A 19-year-old female presented with a painless, progressive upper eyelid swelling of the right eye accompanied by decreased visual acuity. Keratoconus of the right eye was confirmed by corneal topography. After surgery, the lesion mass proved to be a dermoid cyst on pathological examination. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report to describe an orbital dermoid cyst combined with unilateral keratoconus. This case suggested that the keratoconus of the right eye may be a secondary manifestation of the mechanical pressure exerted by the orbital dermoid cyst.
