We present a case of 10 year old boy who came to us with rapidly progressing bilateral proptosis. Computed tomography showed ill defined homogenous mass in bilateral orbits. Total leucocyte count was raised and peripheral smear showed presence of blasts confirming diagnosis of acute myeloid leukaemia. This case of ours highlights that leukaemia is an important differential diagnosis in children presenting with bilateral proptosis. Along with orbital imaging peripheral blood smear is a useful and inexpensive tool to aid in early diagnosis of the disease and for eventual favourable outcome.

Keywords: Proptosis, Acute myeloid leukemia, Peripheral smear.
