Sphenoid wing meningiomas are slow-growing tumors that originate from outer arachnoid meningeal epithelial cells. They can present with progressive symptoms of an orbital or temporal fossa mass, including temporal fullness, proptosis, globe displacement, ptosis, and impaired ocular motility. The ophthalmic manifestations of sphenoid wing meningiomas vary depending on the location of the primary tumor. In this case report, we discuss a 52-year-old female with meningioma of unusual presentation which was reported to be removed completely, and recurrence was noticed after a lapse of 3 years with subsequent extension into the orbit resulting in the structural and functional destruction of the eye.
