Orbital computed tomography scan showed small well-circumscribed exophytic masses of bone density on frontal process of maxillary bone. The patient refused any surgical intervention in this stage. After 5 years masses demonstrated a significant growth and she requested to do surgery. Complete surgical excision was performed and histopathological diagnosis was consistent with an ivory-typed osteoma. The patient was tumor-free in a 2-year follow up. Orbital osteoma may present as subcutaneous nodules on orbital rim, which can be eradicated by surgical excision of the tumor. © 2019 by Mutaz B. Habal, MD.
