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.
