Orbital lymphangioma is an infrequent benign cystic lesion manifesting in childhood and presenting with slowly progressive proptosis, and restriction of eye movements. Here we report a rare case of 8 year old male patient presenting with unilateral painful proptosis and subconjunctival hemorrhage with decrease of vision and restriction of eye movements. CT scan and MRI were done which revealed an intraorbital and intraconal cystic space occupying lesion. Fronto-orbito zygomatic craniotomy was done for orbital decompression and subtotal excision of tumor and blood evacuation. Histopathological findings were suggestive of lymphangioma.
