Two cases of malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the orbit are reported. Histopathological examination of the orbital biopsy specimen obtained after orbitotomy in one case and exenteration in another showed pleomorphic neoplastic cells arranged in storiform pattern. The tumour cells were composed of hyperchromatic nuclei with prominent nucleoli and admixtures of fibrob­lasts. Postoperative radiotherapy and chemotherapy were given. There was no evidence of recurrence two years later.
