Orbital rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is the most common orbital malignancy of childhood. It is a highly malignant tumour and is one of the few life threatening diseases, if its diagnosis is delayed. Among the entire group of extraconal intraorbital tumours RMS poses a significant challenge for the pathologist and oncologist in terms of its diagnosis and treatment. This case report highlights the general overview of primary orbital RMS, its histopathological and immunohistochemical features and management.
