This report describes a case of an orbital giant cell reparative granuloma in an 85-year-old woman. Giant cell reparative granulomas are fibro-osseous benign proliferations typically found in the jawbones and rarely in the orbital bones. All previously described cases in the orbit have been in younger patients, classically in the third to fourth decades.
