Purpose : To report a rare case of isolated orbital mucocele after trauma

Case report : A 45-year-old man presented with swelling in the left orbital region. The only significant event in his medical history was trauma which occurred 25 years previously during the Iran-Iraq war. Computed tomography revealed a left medial intraorbital cystic mass lesion. The cystic mass was completely removed through the transcaruncular approach. The cystic mass was isolated in the orbital cavity. Histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of mucocele.

Conclusion : Generally, mucocele is within the sinus cavities or its origin is from sinus cavity, but in the present case, the old trauma was the most likely cause of the mucocele that had caused sinus epithelium take access to the orbital cavity and grow there.
