A 24-year-old female presented with proptosis and limitation of eye movements and was investigated radiologically with a tentative diagnosis of lymphangioma. Initial biopsy was considered to be in favor of optic glioma on histopathology, but immunohistochemistry was negative for Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP). A year later, the patient reported back with worsening proptosis. She underwent exenteration of left eye for a posterior mass encasing the optic nerve. The final diagnosis of myxoid liposarcoma was rendered on excision biopsy. The difficulties experienced in establishing diagnosis are shared in this case report.
