Neuroblastoma is the third most common extracranial neural malignancy of the childhood, with most cases getting diagnosed before the age of 5 years. Orbital metastasis is present in few number of such cases and ocular manifestation as the first sign of the disease is even rarer, which causes a great diagnostic dilemma. As the prognosis of these patients remains very poor, early diagnosis and aggressive treatment can be lifesaving. The case presented here is a patient of Stage 4 neuroblastoma with orbital manifestation as the first presenting feature, which led to diagnostic delay. The role of ophthalmologist in metastatic neuroblastoma can vary from making a clinical diagnosis and staging of the disease, monitoring ocular complications during active treatment, or as a supportive role in the entire management of the case.
