Angiolipoma is characteristically described as an encapsulated mass of mature adipose tissue containing clusters of small blood vessels. The authors have described an extremely rare case of angiolipoma of the orbit. This rare case is only the third reported in the orbit and should be readily recognized from other differential diagnoses. The patient had an excellent prognosis after full surgical excision.
