PURPOSE: To report a case of metastatic tumor to the left orbit from a sacrococcygeal chordoma. METHODS: A 48-year-old man with a sacrococcygeal chordoma developed left orbit swelling, left eye proptosis with deteriorating vision, and the inability to walk. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of the orbital tumor and sacrococcygeal tumor was performed. RESULTS: Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) showed features of sacrococcygeal chordoma with metastatic tumor to the left orbit. CONCLUSION: Although chordoma rarely metastasizes, this case demonstrates chordoma metastatic to the orbit.
