Alveolar soft part sarcoma is a rare soft tissue neoplasm that accounts for approximately 1% of all sarcomas and is usually identified in the extremities in adults. The occurrence of alveolar soft part sarcoma in the orbit is extremely rare, estimated at approximately 5% – 15% among all cases of alveolar soft part sarcoma. Here, we present a case of 29-year-old woman with orbital alveolar soft part sarcoma. We describe the magnetic resonance and F-18 2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose-position emission tomography/computed tomography findings of this case. This young woman had a spindle-shaped mass. A higher signal compared to the extraocular muscle on T1-weighted images, numerous flow voids on T2-weighted images, and intense enhancement could be key findings of this disease.
