A 70-year-old female presented with severe headache and left eye pain. Ocular examination revealed proptosis of the left eye with dilated scleral veins. There was a rapid deterioration in the patient's vision and the repeat ocular examination on day 2 revealed the presence of a scleral bleb that contained clear fluid [Figure 1]a. A computed tomographic (CT) scan showed a large extra-axial mass lesion in the left anterior cranial fossa extending into the left orbit with a mass effect [Figure 1]b. The patient was immediately treated with intravenous mannitol and underwent emergency craniotomy and tumor decompression. The histopathological diagnosis was suggestive of meningioma.
