A 62-year-old man presented to the ophthalmology department with acute onset of pain, redness and diminution of vision in the right eye since 2 days. He was diagnosed to have craniofacial fibrous dysplasia, 5 years ago, which was confirmed with the biopsy. He gave history of gradually progres-sive outward deviation of right eye since 5 years for which he did not seek any treatment. On examination, his visual acuity was 20/200 in right eye and 20/20 in left eye. Examination of extra-ocular motility revealed outward and downward displacement of the right eye with total limitation of adduction and elevation. However, there was no proptosis of the right eye.
