This is a case report of a 61-year-old woman who was referred to the PUC Campinas Hospital due to a femoral fracture. Ophthalmological evaluation was requested due to complaints of enophthalmos and low visual acuity, which showed signs suggestive of an orbital tumor. Physical and complementary examinations were important for the confirmation of metastatic orbital carcinoma. Knowing that breast cancer is the most common primary tumor site involved in orbital metastasis in women, this study aimed to highlight the importance of prompt recognition and appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic management in these cases.
