A 17-year-old boy presented with a painless, right superotemporal orbital mass. Imaging demonstrated a lacrimal gland mass extending into the temporalis muscle through the lateral orbital wall. The patient underwent an orbital exenteration. Histopathology revealed malignant mixed tumor (carcinoma ex-pleomorphic adenoma) of the lacrimal gland with perineural and vascular invasion.
