          Abstract

          The authors describe a case of histologically proven orbital metastasis from a hepatic carcinoma in an 85-year-old patient with rapid onset of proptosis and visual loss. The clinical diagnosis of orbital metastatic lesion was established by standardized echography and CT scan. To the best of our knowledge, this is only the third histologically proven case of hepatoma metastatic to the orbit.
