An 82-year-old woman presented with a five-week history of painless proptosis. Results of clinical evaluation, including computed tomography, were consistent with a benign orbital tumor. Biopsy followed by surgical resection disclosed leiomyosarcoma. We reviewed the literature and studied the clinical spectrum of this rare disease of the orbit.
