Rapidly increasing proptosis is rare in a newborn. The causes are diverse, and determining an exact etiology is difficult. We report a case of acute proptosis in a 26 day old infant due to dural fistula. To our knowledge, this is the youngest reported patient with a dural fistula. A multidisciplinary approach was essential to understanding the etiology of the proptosis in this child and providing adequate and successful treatment.
