Liposarcoma is a malignant tumor of adipose tissue. Considered the most common soft tissue sarcoma in adults, orbital liposarcoma is extremely rare. Most cases of orbital liposarcoma are primary and rarely metastatic. We report two cases of primary orbital liposarcoma with clinical presentation, radiologic studies (available for one case), and detailed histopathologic features. A brief review of primary orbital liposarcoma is also presented.
