This study aims to report a case of primary orbital liposarcoma which presented as caruncle mass. A 45-year-old woman presented to our hospital to evaluate the bumpiness of the caruncle in her left eye. A yellowish nodule , which was firmly attached to the sclera , was seen in the caruncle area and seemed to extend into the orbit. Incisional biopsy revealed myxoid liposarcoma She denied further evaluation and came back with enlarged mass after one year. She underwent lid-sparing exentration and was free of recurrence for 5 years.
