Herein we present a retrospective case report of a very rare fibrolipoma originating in the orbit. Lipomas and related variants presenting in the orbit are very rare. Only 2 documented orbital fibrolipomas were noted in our review of literature. A 26-year-old woman presented with a growing mass below the left eyebrow 4 years after suffering facial trauma after being kicked in the face by a horse. CT demonstrated a hypodense nodule adherent to the orbital portion of the left frontal bone that was not encapsulated. An elective left anterior orbitotomy with excisional biopsy was performed, and fibrolipoma was confirmed on histopathologic examination. There was no evidence of tumor after 2-year follow up. The presence of a fibrolipoma in the periosteum of the orbital rim is very rare and might be a result of inflammatory transformation following facial trauma.
