Extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma (EMC) is a rare soft tissue tumor. Numerous cases of EMC have been reported in different anatomical locations. There is currently only a single case of EMC of the orbit and that was reported in 1985. We report a second case of orbital EMC in a 34-year-old healthy male.
