Figure 1: 73-year-old woman with history of lung neuroendocrine tumor presenting with a heterogeneous mass in the right orbit, involving the lacrimal gland (a). Twenty months after resection, there was no recurrence of the orbital tumor (b). C-E. A 63-year-old man with orbital carcinoid metastasis 11 years after treatment of testicular carcinoid tumor. MRI of the orbits shows a well-circumscribed heterogeneous mass in the left orbit (arrow) (c), which was treated by surgical excision. Two subsequent orbital tumor recurrences developed at 4 (d) and 4½ years (e) after initial excision along with extension of the lesion into the anterior cranial fossa and maxillary sinus. Orbital exenteration was ultimately performed
