A 64-year-old woman presented with a 1 year history of progressive left proptosis and “blurry vision.” Imaging studies revealed a left superior orbital mass distorting the optic nerve and superior rectus muscle. Excisional biopsy established the diagnosis of hobnail hemangioma. This report describes the first case of an orbital hobnail hemangioma, a lesion that more commonly presents in the dermis.
