Gender: Male
Modality: CT

A soft tissue mass in the inferior aspect of the orbit inseparable from inferior rectus muscle. The mass results in proptosis and deforms the posterior aspect of the globe.

Case Discussion

CT of the orbits demonstrates a soft tissue mass in the inferior aspect of the orbit inseparable from inferior rectus muscle. The mass results in proptosis and deforms the posterior aspect of the globe.

The remainder of the orbit is unremarkable, and the contralateral orbit is normal. Findings are consistent with the histologically proven with orbital rhabdomyosarcoma.
