Undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS), earlier known as malignant fibrous histiocytoma, is a rare entity in the orbit. Here, we report a case of UPS in a 34-year male, who presented as rapidly progressive unilateral proptosis with no history of any other systemic diseases. The tumor was removed surgically, followed by adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy. After one year follow-up, the patient had not shown any orbital recurrence but had lung and gastrointestinal metastasis. UPS is rare, but because of its aggressive behavior, it should be included in the differential diagnosis of orbital tumors.
