young girl presented with painless proptosis of left eye with restricted eye
movements. Her radiology revealed a large soft tissue mass causing destruction

of intracranial and intra orbital part of the tumor brought about substantial relief.
The clinical and radiological presentation and management of this entity are
discussed.
