A 57-year-old male presented with a fleshy mass encroaching on the limbus in the right eye. With a clinical diagnosis of invasive squamous neoplasia, topical interferon-alpha was started. Since the patient had unremitting pain, exenteration was done. Histopathology revealed conjunctival spindle cell neoplasia, and immunohistochemistry markers favored malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first description of orbital MPNST presenting as a surface malignancy.
