A lonely orbital tumor does not rule out systemic disease associated. You need a systemic study because, as we have seen, 75% of orbital tumors are secondary. Hence the importance of early diagnosis by the ophthalmologist, since it raises the possibility of establishing a chemotherapy treatment, which involves the elimination of any possible undetected focus extraorbital and decreases the rate of distant recurrences.
