Breast cancer (BC) is a heterogeneous disease, both molecularly and histologically. The most common histological subtype of BC is that of no special type, followed by lobular carcinoma. Metastatic tumors of the orbit are relatively infrequent, and their primary sites can be the prostate, the gastrointestinal tract, and for women, the breast. The diagnosis and management of such rare cases are very challenging due to the limited data. We present two interesting cases of women initially diagnosed with BC characterized by different histological features who developed periorbital metastases. Orbital radiotherapy was the treatment of choice, and the outcome was successful.
