A multitude of benign and malignant tumors can occur in the orbit. The ordinary lipoma is most common benign tumor in mesenchymal origin and differentiate into adipose tissue. The differential diagnosis of these rare form of lipoma are made, however CT & MRI allows a specific diagnosis to be made in all cases of rare location of lipomas.  We reported a case of primary orbital lipoma in a 16-year-old male patient presented with a painless swelling over right upper eyelid. The mass was pathologically diagnosed as a benign lipoma. The anterior orbitotomy surgery was performed and followed by postoperative recall. We highlighted the role of MRI findings in the tumor diagnosis and surgical procedure for dissection of tumor.
