Localized orbital amyloidosis is rare, usually slowly progressive and benign disorder. The most common signs and symptoms include visible periocular mass, ptosis, proptosis, globe displacement, ocular motility disturbances, recurrent periocular subcutaneous hemorrhages, and dry eyes. Herein, we report a case of localized recurrent orbital amyloidosis with strabismus, restricted eye movement, ptosis, and orbital mass as the presentation in a 60-year-old female and managed with debulking and strabismus surgery, resulting in a good cosmetic and functional outcome.
