    We present a case of aneurysmal bone cyst involving the roof of the orbit and sphenoid bone, with plain film, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging findings. The natural history and treatment depend on the presence of associated abnormalities such as fibrous dysplasia or a giant cell tumour. In this case the lesion was solitary and was successfully removed, so that possible complications from radiotherapy were avoided.
