Enophthalmos as initial manifestation of occult, mammogram-negative carcinoma of the breast.

Author information

Ocular Oncology Service, Wills Eye Hospital, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19107, USA.


A patient with enophthalmos was found to have occult metastatic breast carcinoma to the orbit despite normal findings on breast examination and mammogram. Enophthalmos can be a sign of serious systemic disease and should be appropriately investigated. Despite radiologically interpreted normal orbital and breast imaging, the clinician should rule out underlying subclinical malignancy and consider orbital biopsy.
