We report a case of significant unilateral left proptosis after a fall in a 10-year old child. Magnetic
resonance imaging showed an extraconal hyperintense orbital mass extending into the maxillary sinus
which was opacified. After drainage the proptosis resolved. The cause of the acute proptosis was
haemorrhage within an orbital lymphangioma.
