Abstract

Metastases to orbit occur rarely but are the most common form of malignant orbital tumors. Usually the orbital metastases occur in disseminated disease. Very rarely orbital metastases can be the presenting feature of systemic malignancy. We report here a case with orbital metastases as the presenting feature of lung malignancy and describe the utility of FDG PET/CT as one-stop-shop imaging modality in this setting.
