Introduction: Intraorbital dermoid cysts are rarely diagnosed in adults, accounting for less than 0.04% to 0.06% of orbital neoplasms in the general population. We report the case of a 69-year-old woman who was treated surgically.Case Report: The patient sought medical attention due to a discreet right unilateral proptosis. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) showed a retrograde lesion ipsilateral to proptosis; with hypersignal at T2, suggestive of soft tissue tumor, in view thereof are indicated therapeutic and diagnostic surgical treatments. For this purpose, the eyelid crease incision was used. The lesion was completely resected, the patient recovered well, and the histopathological examination revealed a dermoid cyst.Conclusion: This report is a valuable source of information for surgeons in the area who will handle rare cases, guiding a holistic therapeutic approach that meets the established healing criteria and, both aesthetically and functionally favors the patient.
